Do you use a period tracker app to see when you are fertile? Here's why your app may not be as accurate as you think:
- If your cycles are not perfectly regular, period tracker apps won't accurately predict your fertile window. That's because they make their predictions based on your past cycles. If your cycles vary by a few days each month, this will throw off the app.
- Even if your cycles are regular, that doesn't mean your fertile window falls on the days when your app says it does. Most apps assume that ovulation occurs 14 days before your period starts. But this amount of time can vary considerably from woman to woman. If you ovulate 11 or 12 days before your period, the app would have no way of knowing this.
- It may not seem like a big deal if your app is off by a few days. But if you're trying to get pregnant, it most certainly is! The fertile window is up to 6 days long, but only 2 or 3 of those days actually have a high chance of conception. So if your app is off by 2 or 3 days, it might miss your peak fertility window entirely!
The bottom line: apps are only as good as the data that goes into them. Ava is the only method that tracks 5 physiological signs of fertility*. Put it on when you go to sleep, and wake up to see accurate fertility predictions based on your unique body.
