Hiya!!! This post is for anyone who gets their period.
This app is amazing, and I love it. It’s called iPeriod. And today I’m gonna talk to you lovely people about it.
The icon that shows up on your phone is a discreet white square with a pink circle in the middle AND IT IS NOT LABELED! So anyone glancing at your phone wouldn’t know what it was. A period is nothing to be ashamed of, but if you have your period, and do not identify as a cis-female, then the discreet nature of this app not only may benefit you and so might the reminder of when your next period is coming.
That first picture above is what I set my phone to say when I am close, because it humors me and makes me feel like a warrior. HOWEVER- you can customize the app to say ANYTHING. It can be very discreet, it can just say “3 days”, etc. It can say anything you want.
The next two pictures are what the main app looks like when you have an alert, and without the alert. The ‘wallpaper’ of the app (the black flowers and swirls and stuff) can also be customized. There are lots of different options- and is sure to be something that fits your style.
The large picture below that is the calendar. Pink circle days are your expected periods, and green shaded days are days you are expected to be most fertile. (I think you can turn the fertile options off). You’ll notice other symbols show up on the calendar too; we’ll talk about those in the last pictures.
So the next two are: My cycle history (on the left), and then my next 8 predicted periods (on the right).
The last two pictures are notes. If you look back up at the calendar- when you highlight a day it says what day that is at the bottom rectangle and there is a ‘>’ symbol. If you click that rectangle it takes you to this symptoms section and you click what applies to you. So when you look back at your calendar the symbols of the symptoms you have show up on the day you had them. Goodness, I hope I’ve explained that in a way that makes sense.
Anyways- that is a very basic overview of this app. IT IS FREE!!!! There IS a version you pay for- but it just has extras and is not necessary.
If you have anymore questions, please don’t hesitate to ask, and I hope this has helped some of you. <3
Reblogging for the morning crowd. I can’t stress enough how great this app is.
I love seeing medical articles with photographs depicting period cramps like this
when it actually feels more like
I just don’t understand how I can speedwalk/basically be running across an entire MALL 6 times in a row with barely any stops and not feel a THING down there, but the SECOND I sit down in US History class, Niagara Falls happens.
Toilet paper can work in a pinch until you can get some! I have been blindsided by surprise period with no pads handy before.
I did just that.
I need to start carrying extra pads in my backpack just in case this happens again…

OMG try to make it out of toilet paper or ask strangers? :o
I tried asking the people at the front desk, but they didn’t have any. :/
Oh well, I ended up using a piece of toilet paper.
It’s just SO MUCH FUN when you get your period and have no access to pads at all. Just SO FUN. :)))
people who exercise in order to get rid of period cramps are the ones surviving the apocalypse.
Shout out to all the olympic athletes competing on their periods
