1. Clue

This App prides itself on being super scientific based - meaning the design isn't a bright pink flowery explosion. Nope, it's all much sleeker than that; with the app requiring you to enter your typical period and cycle length and any symptoms of PMS you experience.

After a few months, the App learns what your typical cycle is and will update you on what day you're most likely to start your period.

For anyone out there trying to have a baby, the app will even notify you with your fertile window, or, if you're actively NOT trying to have a baby, it'll remind you when to take your contraceptive pill.

Oh, and the best part? It's totally free.

2. Period Tracker Lite 

This App lets you log your dates and will work out when you period is most likely to arrive by averaging your cycle over the previous three months. The design is pretty simple and cute, but it has some really great features - including the ability to export your details to email and the on-screen indicator that shows when you're fertile. 

Again, the basic version is free - but if you want the deluxe version it'll cost you £1.49.

3. Cycles

This App, much like the previous two, involves you recording the beginning of your period to predict when your next one is due. But, unlike the previous two, it also notifies someone else - your other half.

Yep, the main appeal of this app is that it keeps your partner in the loop with your cycle, so that they can provide you with "emotional support" and keep up to date on when your most fertile days are. You know, if you're trying for a baby.

Again, this app is totally free. Happy days.

4. Life

This App combines an innovative calendar design with an easy-to-use date tracker, and will also predict your fertile days for any users out there trying to conceive.

Although the basic version of this app is free, if you update to Life Premium you can also keep track of sex, fertility, weight, nutrition, fitness, sleep, medication, and basic health all in one app. But, if you're after the extra features, it'll cost you £3.00.

5. Period Tracker: My Calendar

This App prides itself on making sure you never miss a pill ever again. Not just the contraceptive pill either - any form of medication, drugs, supplements, rings, patches, or injections are all covered. Yep, it's basically like your own personal pharmacy.

Oh, and it also lets you record any weight and temperature changes alongside any PMS symptoms you've experiencing. This App is also free, but if you want the ad-free version it'll cost you £2.29. 

So, there you go. Isn't technology amazing?
