Four Fertility Apps to Help You Conceive
Technology has made so many advances that now women are using fertility apps to increase their chances of conceiving! While nothing can replace the personalized recommendations of a reproductive specialist at Procrea, if you are just beginning to think about getting pregnant, these apps might be able to help you understand your cycle and fertile windows.
- Kindara is a free app but also offers a premium version with upgrades. Kindara has an additional product you can use with the mobile app, Wink, a basal body thermometer. But it’s not necessary, just use your own thermometer and input your waking temperatures manually. The app helps women predict fertile days, ovulation, and menstruation based on the information you provide daily.
- Period Tracker is a free app that has a few different modes; you can use it only to track your menstrual cycles, a Trying to Conceive (TTC) mode, and a Pregnancy mode. TTC mode predicts ovulation and fertile days to time intercourse for increased chances of conception. This app also has additional features through a paid subscription.
- Monthly Cycles is another free app with in-app purchases available. Track your period, temperature, and symptoms to see your fertile days.
- Eve is also free with a subscription option for premium upgrades. This app claims to get smarter over time, so be sure to use it to track your period, temperatures, cervical fluid, and other symptoms. Eve predicts fertile windows, ovulation, and your next cycle.
Remember that these apps are just meant as a starting point. If you are 35 or under and have been trying for a year, or 35 and older and have been trying for six months, it may be time to schedule an appointment with a fertility doctor at Procrea in Ontario or Quebec.
