Monthlies helps you to determine your menstrual or fertile days of the month, so you can either achieve or avoid pregnancy. The calendar is based on the first date of your last period, the average Period Length and Luteal Phase. With this information a chart is generated for each month, including details such as the next period date, the best days to conceive a boy or a girl, your ovulation day and when you should abstain from intercourse to avoid pregnancy.

  • Five themes for the Calendar View.

  • View your cycles complete with emoticons, icons symbolizing cramps, love connections, notes, spotting, period days and flow, expected periods, fertile days, ovulation, and more
  • 4 digit pin protection.
  • Daily tips with instruction for menstrual and fertility.
  • Calendar view
  • Simple interface to log your periods.

Monthlies assumes a luteal phase length of 14 days, which is the average for most women unless you modify the luteal phase length in the settings screen.
