Review of Flo Period and Ovulation Tracker App

Review of Flo Period and Ovulation Tracker App

In need of a period, fertility or ovulation tracker application, well do I have the perfect one for you. Flo is a free application that tracks periods, ovulation, fertility and even has a pregnancy mode. I downloaded Flo over two years ago and have yet to find a reason to stop using the app or switch to another period tracking application. Over my two years of using this application I have found it to be very accurate when predicting when my next cycle with start and end. 

Getting Started

When you first download Flo you enter in information pertaining to your weight, age, when your last period ended, how long it lasted, and other data. Answering these questions accurately helps the application to predict when your next cycle will begin and when your ovulation day is.


The application uses a monthly calendar to display when your ovulation day is and when your period should start and end. The dates that are red are the days of your cycle and the dots underneath are the symbol that shows that you logged PMS symptoms for that day. The middle picture is an example of how an ovulation day is identified, the day is circled with blue dots. Each time you open Flo you will see the information for that day and then along the top the week will be displayed. You can easily swipe over to see the past and future weeks.

PMS Symptom Tracker

By clicking the plus button in the right hand corner you can tracker PMS symptoms. I find this feature to be very helpful when it comes to the week before my cycle starts. The following pictures give you an idea of the different PMS symptoms that you can track. Another feature that is included in the PMS symptom tracker is a notes section. I use this to log when I change my tampon or pad.


In the More part of the application you can customize the type and frequency of notifications that you want to receive from the Flo. The only reminder I have set up is to be reminded that my period is going to being in a couple of days. I find this reminder to be very helpful since I do not regularly check the application. In this same part of the application you can turn on a contraception pill reminder. 

Pregnancy Mode

I have yet to use or explore the pregnancy mode of Flo, so I do not feel as though I can review or comment on that specific part of the application. 

Do I recommend Flo?

I do recommend this app for anyone who is looking for a period or ovulation tracker. The predictions are accurate and the reminder notifications are extremely helpful. Flo includes all the features necessary for a period and ovulation tracker. And a bonus is that it is very user friendly and easy to use. I highly recommend Flo to anyone who is looking into a period and ovulation tracker app.

Reasonable Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule

Reasonable Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule After my first semester of college I have developed a cleaning routine that I have been able to keep up with. You can read my previous blog post about What I Learned In My First Semester of College . Over the past few months I have experimented and I am confident in the routine that I have created.  Personalize When it comes to personalizing the schedule you could add or take out the different chores. For example I also wash my retainers weekly and monthly my roommate and I decorate the marker board on the outside of our door. We also only clean our mirrors when needed since we have found that they do not seem to become too dirty regularly. Something that I would make sure you sanitize every week would be the surfaces that you are constantly touching. That means light switches, door handles, and your desk. By doing this I managed to avoid getting sick when my roommate and other floor mates go sick. Another task that you could add to y

Bullet Journal Fitness and Workout Spread Ideas

If you want to purchase some of these spreads you can buy the digital bundle from my Etsy shop: Simply Paperless .  I had created six different bullet journal fitness and workout trackers/spreads. These spreads were made in my digital bullet journal using the GoodNotes App.   I highly recommend to use a stylus when using GoodNotes as a digital bullet journal. For this project I used the Adonit Dash 3 Stylus , which I highly recommend. I also recommend the Bargain Depot Stylus 2 Pack  from Amazon. Daily Workout Plan This first spread can be used to plan out what exercises you plan to workout each day of the week. I would recommend this spread for those who are just starting to workout. I did not created the workout that is used as the example for the content of this spread. The workout is from Pintrest Workout Plan .  Workout Tracker This next tracker is in the format of a monthly calendar. In order to track the different workouts accomplished throughout

Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus Book Review

Reasons For Reading This Book: Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus was Jackie's choice for the month of October. Jackie is the host of The Readheads Podcast Book Club. This is a monthly podcast book club that I have been apart of since it was established in 2020. I love getting to hear the thoughts of the hosts each month.  Content of the Book: Elizabeth Zott is a chemist but is much more than meets the eye. She is not only beautiful but also extremely smart, confident, strong, and not afraid to beat to her own drum. Elizabeth is one of the only female chemists working at Hastings Research Institute. She is viewed as different by everyone there. It's there that she meet Nobel-Prize nominated chemist Calvin Evans. Calvin who falls in love with Elizabeth is described as a loner, grudge holder, and extremely brilliant. Fast forward a few years and Elizabeth is now a single-mother working as the host of the most watched cooking show, Supper at Six . With Elizabeth's ways of
