Modern technology has made so many things possible. Now, women are turning to apps to conceive! Digital savvy women can find a host of smartphone and tablet apps to track ovulation and provide tips to their most fertile window. The fertility experts at Sher Fertility Institute in New York share some apps that might be worth your time.
- Fertility Friend was one of the first apps on the market for online fertility charting. They have a free option, or you can upgrade to a yearly membership for more helpful features that could help you get pregnant faster. This app allows you to track fertility signs each month and may predict the optimal time for intercourse in order to conceive.
- Glow allows users to record basal body temperature (BBT), period dates, and much more. You can track symptoms and get some clues on when you may be ovulating as well. This app is free for iOS and Android devices.
- Kindara is a free app that can be used with their thermometer, Wink. Without the thermometer, you can manually enter your BBT, as well as cervical fluid and other symptoms that can help you find out when you are ovulating.
- Clue is an app that gets more accurate the more you use it. This free app tracks your menstrual cycle and cervical fluid.
- Ovia aims to help women get pregnant by charting periods, ovulation, cervical fluid, and BBT. This app is free on iOS and Android, with an option to upgrade.
- Natural Cycles reveals when a woman can and cannot get pregnant based on the BBT entered. This app lets you know when you have ovulated and will predict your next ovulation date.
These apps can be useful when you first start trying to get pregnant. However, they are not a replacement for professional medical advice. If you have been unsuccessful in conceiving after one year, it is important to see a fertility doctor.
