FemCal Lite: Period and Ovulation Calendar
By Watmough Software
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
FemCal Lite is the easy, portable way to track your cycles. Easily track menstrual symptoms, medications, notes, tests and more.
FemCal Lite estimates when your next few periods will start and puts icons in the calendar for estimated next period, estimated temperature rise and estimated peak day.
FemCal Lite gives you an easy to read graphical chart of your current cycle, and *all* your past data is stored on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
FemCal Lite is now updated to version 1.9.3
★ Easy-to-use, just tap!
★ Calendar display,
★ Display your upcoming periods (estimated from your average cycle length),
★ Display estimated fertile and infertile days,
★ Chart your latest cycle.
FemCal Lite lets you easily enter the following information during your cycle:
★ Waking temperature in Fahrenheit or Celsius,
★ Menses flow from spotting, light, medium heavy,
★ Cervical fluid consistency,
★ Cervical firmness
★ Ovulation test kit name and result,
★ Pregnancy test kit name and result,
★ Other procedure, such as BSE etc.,
★ Up to five symptoms, with an editable list of symptoms,
★ Up to five medications, with an editable list of medications,
★ A daily note, allowing you to store a comment or reminder,
FemCal Lite shows a calendar display that shows entered waking temperatures, and icons that represent the entered data. By touching a day, the data entered for that day is shown in a summary area below the calendar, that can be scrolled if necessary. The calendar estimates your fertile days in green, depending on temperature, and/or cervical fluid. Lower fertility days are shown in red, based on the Fertility Awareness Method (F.A.M.) rules:
★ After your period, for dry days prior to an increase in cervical fluid,
★ 3+ days after a rise in temperature above cover-line (estimated from six or more entered temperatures, post-menses)
★ 4+ days after peak cervical fluid
FemCal Lite contains a chart - see example in screenshots - that displays the start date of the selected cycle, and includes a graph of your temperatures through the cycle, and the other entered information. FemCal Lite can estimate peak day, and plot cover-line temperature, which can help you in understanding your cycle.
Important note: FemCal Lite is intended only to be an aid in tracking your cycle, and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any medical condition.

It's good for the price
This is a free app and I'm judging it on being free. Useful, convenient and plenty of variables; temp, mucus, sensation, medications, procedures, secondary symptoms, notes, etc. I like that it is compatible with TCYOF's fertility rules and can be set to show fertile days in another color. A little counter intuitive with dry days being in the period settings and sticky mucus triggering fertile days. Can be worked around though.
What really bugs me is the ovulation and period predictor. I can see if it predicted a period on the current cycle using peak +14 but this thing is predicting ovulation and periods based on the past cycles just like the Calendar Days/Rhythm Method. As a seasoned charter, this bugs the snot out of me! I have peak and period notes all over my current and future months and they're wrong. You can't have two true peaks in a cycle and LP's do not run 20 days. Need to fix that algorithm.
I like that it pulls FAM/NFP into the electronic age but honestly will not be giving up my paper charts for this. Maybe I will like the paid version better but is it worth the $3.99? Eh, we'll see.
Love it! Love it! Love it!
While this app is designed to help women determine when is optimal to become pregnant, I use it for a completely different purpose. (My baby factory is closed.) I use it to keep track of my sexual activities and with whom. I track cold sore outbreaks. I track my cycle, of course. This really helps me stay healthy and clean. I tell my girlfriends and lovers about it. Really helps lovers have confidence that I use safe sex practices constantly. I have had this app for over 2.5 years and it ACCURATELY predicts my cycle month after month after month. So very highly recommended!
Was great, but needs update!
I really liked this app and used it for over a year, but it needs an update ever since IOS 8. There's no longer an ability to put a decimal point for the temperature. That's key to tracking your temperature, as the significant changes are usually in the tenths of a degree and not a full degree change. I have e-mailed support.
Overall, while it's good to track signs on your own, the app is nice because it predicts peak day and the day of your next menstrual cycle beginning. Those are nice days for the app to automatically tell you when that might be.
