In December I became an Ambassador for a smartphone app called Clue. Clue is used to keep track of aspects of your health including your period, mood, the amount of pain you feel, physical activity, cravings, and more in order to measure approximately when your next period, fertile window, or premenstrual syndrome (PMS) will happen.
I really like Clue because it’s not PINK. For anyone out there who uses period tracking apps or apps that are meant to be targeted at anyone with a uterus, you know that they are often pink and flowery which is kind of annoying especially when your period makes you feel like absolute crap. Something else I like about Clue is that it can help you better understand your cycle. For example, Clue will help you predict approximately how long your period will last and around what dates it will happen based on your other cycles, what kinds of symptoms you usually feel, and other data to help you live your life to the fullest. Clue also uses science and data to make your Clue reports more personal to your cycle as well as anonymously gathering data to study menstrual health as a means of pushing for developments in reproductive healthcare which is a benefit for everyone whether you are a Clue user or not.
Clue intends to help people worldwide benefit from understanding menstrual and reproductive health. It’s really cool because you can share your cycle and data with friends, family, or your doctor. In addition, Clue sends little updates straight to your email to give you a bit more education on menstrual health and reproductive health in general as well as about your own cycle. Clue can also help you understand why you feel certain ways close to your period or on your period days and what to do to deal with that. The best part is, you don’t have to be on your period to use Clue though, the more you use Clue to track how you feel on a day to day basis, the smarter and more personalized it gets.
All that being said, if you’re looking for a great app to track your menstrual health with and an app that will help you learn more about YOU, Clue is the right choice!
