Even before I went off the pill, I installed an app on my phone. Clue is a period tracking app, but it’s not just for women who want to be aware of their fertility or ovulation cycle. I installed it out of curiosity, but it did end up helping me when Dean and I were ready to start trying for a kid.
What I like about the app is just how scientific it is, and that it gets ever more accurate the more you use it. As someone who suffers from hormone-induced migraines, as well as the odd mood swing, it was great to be able to predict when these might come. While on the pill, I was generally quite aware of when I’d be getting my period, but once I went off, it was more a mystery – one that clue could give insight into.
