Top 5 Mobile Period Trackers

Most women’s menstrual cycle is 28 days. Normally, the length of a period is 3 to 8 days, averaging 5 days.

What is the menstrual cycle?

The monthly cycle causes a series of changes in a woman’s body as it prepares for the possibility of fertilization. During this time of the month, a woman’s body sheds the lining of the uterus or womb. The blood passes through the uterus into the opening of the cervix and leaves the body from the vagina.

Period trackers can often tell you when bleeding is the heaviest, which is usually on days one and two. The bleeding tends to become lighter toward the end of a cycle. Downloading and utilizing, one of these mobile apps will allow you to track your menstrual cycle.
