The 10 Best Period Tracking Apps

Periods usually arrive once each month. However, the exact date, flow, cramp severity, and accompanying symptoms are not quite that consistent.

The period length may also vary and last for 3–8 days, with an average of 5 days, and bleeding is often heaviest on days 1 and 2, after which, it starts to become lighter.

Tracking your period can be useful for several reasons, as it can help you to get to know your own body and cycle and observe any symptoms, such as mood swings or headaches, which may occur during a particular phase of your cycle.
