We have all had those days.  You know that day when you forget that February, for some astronomical reason, skips three days or when yesterday merges into today and your little red friend surprisingly pops up on you.  Well the technology gods are here to save you.  Thanks to Android, Apple and I’m sure two handfuls of resourceful women, strawberry apps, or period tracker applications, have become the new way to make sure, with striking precision, that your little red friend has to knock before barging into your front door.  In addition, most period trackers help ladies stay on course by pinpointing your most fertile days for family planning and tracks your mood swings — so that when your yelling at your husband and he’s saying “What the hell is wrong with you all of a sudden,” you’ll know exactly why.  (But that doesn’t mean you have to tell him if the yelling makes you feel better, its your period and you can cry if you want to.)  Here’s a Brown Mommy countdown of the web’s best period trackers:

Kindara: This app is an aid in tracking your cycle, but mostly boast its ability to help a woman achieve, or not achieve, pregnancy through education.  This app is a great for teaching a young girl about her body.  It tracks everything from how exercise affects your cycle to how long your “Luteal Phase,” or most non-fertile stage, last.

periodtracker
Android Period Tracker:  Cute, pretty, did I say cute.  I have this app on my phone and I love, love, love it.  It’s just so damn cute.  Once you launch the app on your phone it has a one-touch box that let’s you chart the day you come on your period and the day it ends.  Like Kindara it also lets you track your mood swings and most fertile times.

glow
Glow: This app is easy to use and has a stunningly, happy glow about it to bring a bit of cheer to the most uncomfortable five to seven days of your month.  It’s very similar to Android’s Period Tracker, but has a Glow Together community where you can talk about period issues and learn more about fertility.
