More than a period tracker - key information about OvuFriend
How long does it take to use OvuFriend menstrual calendar?
Just a few minutes a day to complete information about your health, cycle, mood or symptoms. But it all depends on you and your goal.
If you use OvuFriend to prepare for pregnancy, get pregnant or are undergoing infertility treatment, it is worthwhile for you to spend some more time on recording information. The more information you provide, the better OvuFriend will learn your fertility.
Similarly, if you feel something that worries you, e.g. low libido, abdominal pain, spotting, or heavy bleeding, then in addition to the obvious consultation with your doctor, it is worthwhile for you to take some time and note down your symptoms and information about your menstrual cycle in the application on a daily basis for at least 3 cycles.
If you use OvuFriend to track your cycles, to know when your last menstruation occurred, to know if your cycles are regular and to have your fertility under control, it is probably enough to log the most important parameters of your cycle once in a while, i.e. menstrual bleeding, cervical mucus or the symptoms you feel, which you consider important. The system analyzes the information you enter on an ongoing basis.
At OvuFriend you will be supported by a digital health assistant, which will give you personalized tips, hints and ask for relevant information about your cycles and fertility if needed for your cycles and health evaluation.
What do I need to use OvuFriend application?
Just download the free OvuFriend app from Appstore or GooglePlay and start typing simple observations of your body, mood or activity. Using an OvuFriend menstrual calendar is very easy. If you would also like to measure your body basal temperature in the morning (BBT), it is worth to have a thermometer measuring temperature to two decimal places. However, to determine ovulation and fertile days in the OvuFriend application it is not necessary to measure your body basal temperature.
Does it make sense to use a menstrual calendar if the cycles are irregular?
Sure you do! OvuFriend is mostly created to help women get pregnant. And often it is the women who have irregular cycles that need this help the most, because they find it most difficult to determine the fertile days and date of ovulation. What distinguishes OvuFriend from other fertile days applications is the high credibility of determining ovulation in case of irregular cycles.
