Flo Period Tracker & Calendar Positive Reviews
Not a fan of new formatI used to love flo. I’ve been using the app since my junior year of high school (I’m now a senior in college). I appreciate how I’ve been able to track my period through the years, as it’s been enormously helpful to my overall health, well-being, and awareness of my body. That being said, I have really struggled with the new updates that flo has undergone. Not only has the app become significantly less user-friendly, but the constant push to “go premium” has really negatively impacted my experience. I understand why they have a premium option, and I respect that it is there, but what I don’t respect is how I’m constantly being mislead in order to be trapped into signing up for a premium subscription. I find it really irresponsible that women who don’t want to pay for this app, will be given insights about their menstrual health, only to find out that they can’t have access to the information behave they don’t have an account! I used the chat feature a few times before, and it’ll leave me responding to chats for about 5 minutes, and right before they give me an answer about my health, they say I need to subscribe! It’s honestly cruel that an app meant to help women feel more secure about their health, is constantly misleading them like this, or trying to buy their desire for basic health info! Most of which can be googled, btw. I’ve really loved using flo, but am honestly considering shifting gears if things don’t change soon..Version: 6.11
Love it!This app is super useful for tracking periods, and has given me mostly accurate predictions so far! it’s been off by a day or two a couple times when i first started using it because it wasn’t adjusted to my cycle yet, but since then i haven’t had any issues. i love the insights where it gives info about my period and the different changes that come along with a period, and i especially love that you can comment anonymously on posts and get help from and give help to the community. by far, my favorite thing about the Flo app is that you can have it give you reminders to drink water, take meds, and weigh yourself if that is something that you’re concerned about! the reminders are super helpful for me as my meds are for adhd, so i need a reminder so i actually remember to take them lol! the only thing that i would adjust is that my water bottle has metric markings, but i live in america, so i have to convert the metric to ounces to track my water because the only way to use metric for water is to switch the entire app over to metric. this isn’t a huge deal because google is a pretty good converter but it’s just something that i’ve noticed. overall, this is a great app and i’ve recommended it to friends and family, and now i’m recommending it to you!.Version: 4.9.0
I used to love this app way moreI got this app when I was a freshman in high school as they do not teach much about female cycles or anatomy. When I first got it, I found tons of useful information on the app and it was all free and amazing. I learned the different parts of the cycle and it helped me manage my symptoms better as well as understanding what’s going on with my body. While I understand that programs like these need funding in order to run, I find there is no need to bait people into paying for a subscription. Like the chat feature. It pops up prompting you to interact for a bit and making you think it’s going to tell you some useful information but then it tries to make you pay before you can access it. There shouldn’t be as much push for people to pay. It’s irritating especially for people who can’t afford more payments like myself. I would much rather there be a pop up when you open the app asking if you want to pay for premium rather than being tricked into thinking I’m going to be getting something useful for free. Also I am a strong believer that all the info on this app should be taught to girls in school or be free public access but google is not a reliable source and this app has loads to offer but for a price. It’s already bad enough that women don’t get taught anything about their own bodies and it’s a “luxury” to access this information..Version: 8.7.1
It’s nice but...So I used this app for my period And it was great up until my period change and I came on a week early which was perfect for my weekend away because we were planning to get pregnant and my ovulation date was set for a specific day. Well I was on my period a day or two longer so I figured it would probably change my ovulation date. Well my trip was set to be at least about 2 to 3 weeks away and I kept checking the app to make sure and to see if my ovulation date was going to change well it didn’t change it stay the same and make sure that I refresh my app just in case and it stayed the same. Now the day I get to my destinations for my trip is my ovulation day that was on the app that’s what we were depending on. Three days later I go on the app to mark the fact that we made love and the ovulation date changed to the day before I arrived on my trip. Immediately I was upset because it seems as though we may have missed the ovulation day due to the fact that the app didn’t update until after my ovulation date that was set originally. So I deleted the app because of that. It’s very upsetting when you’re trying to get pregnant and your ovulation date just seems to change along with your fertile days changes I just think that that is something that they need to look into I no longer want to use this app..Version: 4.23
Definitely the best period app.After I got my first period I used the same app for years to track it. It never predicted my period right. For the longest time I just figured I was super irregular as many girls are when they start there period, but eventually I realized It said I was consistently late by approximately the same number of days every cycle. I just dealt with it for awhile. When I finally decided to check for a better period tracking app I found Flo. This app is SO MUCH BETTER!! It usually predicts my period pretty accurately, sometimes spot on. When my cycle shifts it always makes adjustments and often becomes more accurate. I also love that it doesn’t mark your period late until A certain number of days after your cycle was supposed to start (I think 5, which is the “official” number of days that make a period considered late. It doesn’t just mark it late when your period doesn’t start the day it was predicted to. I was especially impressed when I missed a period after my wisdom tooth surgery and when I logged my next period the predictions continued to be accurate immediately after. It seems like the developers did a great job on the actual software as well as put lots of thought, research, and expertise into it. It’s a great app!!.Version: 4.59
Currently On a Free TrialI’ve had Flo in the past and loved it. I didn’t have a phone for a year so I just recently got the app again and noticed a lot of changes, including that some features are only available through a payment. The payment is only around 14$ for the entire year.
I don’t think that’s so bad but if it’s out of budget I understand. The features on the free trial are pretty awesome so far, it’s like having access to a gynecologist because the information you give about your period has so much feedback. It’s really surprising what the app tracks and the amount of feedback you get about symptoms, tips / tools, workout ideas, food recommendations, yoga, meditation, and self- assurance. I wanted to take the time to write a review because I was really hesitant to redownload the app with the reviews talking about payments but I’m glad I did and it appreciating the free trial so far. If you’re unsure try the 1 month free trial and see how you like it.
Bonus for the awesome private community conversations that are available to everyone, so that you’re able to anonymously speak with other women/ girls on the app and freely ask questions or help respond to others. It’s just really awesome. I appreciate the app.Version: 5.1
Mostly good & helpful, but too much monetizationI love this app for tracking my period. As many other people said and I agree, the app is pretty accurate when predicting period start dates, ovulation dates, etc. It has been super helpful for me to track my period on this app because I can recognize consistent and non consistent patterns in my period. Whenever there are changes with my period, the app calculates that in and new predictions are still just as accurate. However, the only problem with this app is the constant push for the “premium subscription.” I get that many apps have that and it’s a part of making money, and I have no problem with the features that are specifically for premium members only. I personally am fine with just the core period tracking aspect of the app and that’s it. But everyday it offers the premium subscription when I open the app which can be annoying. I also hate getting a notification on my phone telling me “you may have tender breasts today, see why.” Especially since I’ve never had that symptom. But they push that notification to push an article that is for premium subscribers only. Other than the annoying monetization techniques they use, the app is really good and it has been super helpful to me..Version: 8.3
Amazing but needs a touch.Don't get me wrong, Flo is amazing and you'll never use another app after you download this but it could use a few touches. The one idea I have isn't really important but if you want to have more fun with the app you should also have the choice of using your own photo for a background picture. Doing this would make it a little more fun along with being able to choose the color of the circles or bubbles. Also, it would be cool if people could make their own articles for everyone to read but make a separate column you can click on, incase viewers don't want to read other people's. And lastly, the articles usually talk about tampons. Not everyone wears them including me. It would be great if you could tell everyone how they work and if it hurts. I personally am really sensitive about "down there" and it would be great to know what it's like. Or even talk more about pads. Right now I read things I can on the internet and see how to insert them and everything. But I rly think sticking something up there is really nasty. Again just my opinion. But overall this game is really good. If it was just a little more fun and fit for everyone I would be giving it 5 stars. But hopefully something I said can come true. To Whom Ever It Regards, - Unknown☺️.Version: 3.6.0
Close to great, but missing the mark for meI was very excited about downloading Flo to take more ownership over my cycle & gain resources / insights regarding my intimate health. However as soon as I tapped over into the “secret chat” feature, I found an overwhelming presence of ideological (predominantly Christian) conversations. I know that spirituality and sex lives can be tightly connected, however as someone who doesn’t identify with organized religion, it felt like I’d just arrived to the wrong brunch party. This also immediately made me skeptical of the information being shared within the app. I’m a VERY strong believer in comprehensive sex education, which is commonly seen as being at odds with Christianity in this country—is this app actually balancing science and religion? After looking at their extensive board of medical professionals, I’d like to believe so but I’m still highly skeptical. This is where I also learned that the app was founded by two men (tech entrepreneurs), who (let’s face itttt) probably only care about women’s health in so far as $$$. All in all I wish I hadn’t paid for this app and had opted for a free alternative, as I don’t think the secret chat feature will be useful to me and I have skepticism issues regarding their approach to science / commitment to women’s well-being. The UI is beautiful, I’ll give it that..Version: 7.0
2+ Year User and still Loving it !I have been using this app for awhile now and have been very dedicated to tracking my body's cycle. With this app I avoided pregnancy successfully for 2 years without hormonal birth control by working around my fertility rhythm using the information Flo provided. The longer you use it, the more accurate it it becomes. I think it is essential to track our menstruation. Apps like these can be life changing for women; Reproductive knowledge is empowerment for women. I always enjoy the updates and community sections. Tried other period trackers but I always just come back to Flo because I enjoy the aesthetically pleasing interface and ease of use. This is an app that gets better with time.
Only until recently have I desired more; after giving birth I'm breastfeeding of course, and that can often cause you to go a while without a period. I wish there was a way to log this information as I await to have my cycle again, in a similar manner to flipping a switch for the pregnancy mode. When you look at past data, pregnancy shows up as yellow days in your year calendar. Just a thought. Could continue to aid in accurate predictions if this info was considered..Version: 4.40
I use it everydayI just got this app yesterday and already love it. It’s so easy to use and very informative. Setting up your period (or pregnancy) might be a little confusing at first but once that’s done, you’re fine. I love how precise they try to be and get to know you with surveys (they’re optional). I also love how they give you all different articles to read about (romance, hygiene, body, clothing, exercise, etc.). You also get to chat anonymously with other women and girls - we really help each other out. I could write so much more but don’t want to take up too much time😂. I tried other apps and like this one the best - I would definitely recommend it!! I just finished my period so I don’t know how accurate this will be but based on my calendar at home, it’s right on track. This is the app to use! No app will be perfect, but this is the way to go - i can’t even say how much I love it (weird to be saying about a period app haha!) I’ll update my review once I’ve gotten my next period to see how accurate they are. One thing I don’t like is that they limit how many words/how long your comment can be which gets very annoying so if they can change that, it’d make the app even better..Version: 4.29.1
Great but way too pushyI love Flo, its such a great app. It tracks my period spot on. Even on days that it's late it'll predict that exactly, which honestly scares me (in a good way). I love the community feature because I can ask for advice from real people and not just bots and articles. Another feature I love is how it tracks your sleep, water intake, and mileage for the day which is not usually in other period tracking apps. For someone who's always dehydrated, its a really great feature. Flo also can link with the Health app on iPhone. The one problem about this app is that it's incredibly pushy with buying premium. Whenever I'm using a chat feature it'll say, "the next part is only for premium subscribers" and then direct me to a free trial. I get that premium enhances the app more, but it is constantly pushing me to buy it by throwing it in my face with every feature which gets really annoying. My suggestion to the developers is to change the setup to stop constantly throwing premium in your face. Make it so that the features that are free are only in one place, and the premium in a different place. Other than pushing premium excessively, I do recommend Flo to everyone, especially to first-time period tracker users..Version: 9.7.1
So Incredibly helpful, but not enoughI have been using Flo since I was 11 years old in 7th grade. As a middle school girl who, like every other girl who got their first period, i didn’t know what to expect. Flo was incredibly helpful with mapping my cycle and figuring out my symptoms and it made it super comforting knowing that there were so many other girls going through the same thing. I loved reading the stories and the daily insights because they helped me understand more about my cycle and flow and what to expect.
Unfortunately, and very disappointingly, there is now a Premium Plan where you have to pay to access most of the more helpful features of the app. I understand that it might be some women's choice to pay for this app, however, there a millions of 10+ year old girls who are not willing to pay for the app and therefore, they don’t have access to the stories that help them realize they are not alone, or to the Flo Help Assistant and Daily Insights because it always cuts off right as they are about to explain why they are feeling one of their symptoms and how to possibly help with it.
I adore this app immensely, but i feel it isn’t fair to the girls who are figuring out their cycle and could use the help- that this app used to provide for free- that they are not getting..Version: 8.7.1
Absolutely love, but am a broke college student :/I’ve had this app for a few years now and can honestly say I love it. It’s helped me with so much, including with figuring out how my medications affected me, where before I was so confused with what was going on. Watching this app evolve has been so cool, and I used to have a subscription in the earlier days, which was super handy. I also just tried the free trial of the newest premium version, which is absolutely amazing, and provided me with so much information that I actually feel somewhat educated on my body and how it works. I am a newfound broke college student and am bummed I don’t have the funds to pay for it right now (which I believe is an essential part to keeping this app running, because though we should have the right to free access about the health of our own bodies, I know I can trust this app based on the knowledge that hundreds of hours of work have been put into this by real doctors, instead of finding less trustworthy and sometimes misleading information floating around the internet). I will continue to be loyal to this app and will also hopefully soon be able to take advantage of the healthcare advice again!.Version: 5.2
Good, but having issues (now MORE issues?)UPDATED CORRECTION: My ovulation week (which happened weeks ago) jumped up an entire week too for. So now my period and ovulation dates are changing for seemingly no reason. This has never happened before. I understand the developer’s response, but I’m still not sure if you’re understanding the issue or if I’m failing to see something. Like I said, I’ve never had issues with this EVER, so why is every single thing changing. My period date. Changed over 6 times in the last few days, and so did my ovulation too. This makes no sense.
I never had issues with this before, but this month, the day on when my period is going to start keeps changing. Every day it gets bumped up to the next day. First it said the 18, then 19, and now it’s up to the 21st. I don’t know if there’s an error occurring in the calendar or what, but it’s really annoying and confusing. I can’t tell what day is the correct day for my period to start, and now I’m worried everything else is wrong or the dates are offset (like for ovulation, as an example).
Note: this has nothing to do with periods being late, as this is many days prior to when my period should even start..Version: 4.63
Not AloneBefore, I would always keep the details of my sex life, menstrual cycle, and other feminine problems to myself. After Flo, I feel so much more secure and content with all of the aforementioned issues. The app is well-designed and visually pleasing, as well as easy to use and practical in those uses. Not only can you track your period with Flo, you can also access a community page to share stories, take surveys, and read articles. The period tracker itself is very accurate for me and is usually always on point. The period tracker also gives you the details on your ovulation cycle and such, which gives me a sense of security and preparedness. While I don’t use this feature of the app, there is also a pregnancy mode which can track your pregnancy’s phases and tell you about said phases. I’ve come to love the app and it quite honestly bests all of the other period tracker apps I’ve tried. Flo is great for any woman who loves planning and organization, or any girl looking for advice on her first experiences. The community is accepting and welcoming, and all shared stories are anonymous for those who want to vent. Overall, a wholesome app with a feel-good vibe. Definitely a keeper for me..Version: 4.34
Love this app.So I paid $2 for another app cuz it said it could tell me what phase of my cycle I was in and also send updates to my husband when I was in a new phase and give him heads up for ideas to support me, which is so awesome in theory, but the app is pretty dry, I don’t like the layout, and the insights about the phases weren’t as helpful as I would have liked. AND I could only track certain symptoms at certain times of the month, which is just plain stupid. So I came back to this free app because I like the design and the tracking features because I have random symptoms all month that I will never remember and need to reference at appts.
That said, the ideas behind that other app are great. I would love to have insights about each of the phases and the opportunity to sign my husband up for emails that help him understand my cycle as it happens, too. I would even pay for that. (Not a lot, lol don’t gouge me.)
I never understood much about my period and lady bits until I was older, so this has been very helpful overall. And it is usually pretty accurate at estimating dates (within a few days), even though my period can be really wonky and frequently comes early..Version: 4.17.0
Great app with a minor-but annoying-issueI’ve been using Flo for years to track my period cycles, and I’ve subscribed to Flo premium for two or three years. Thanks to the fertile/ovulation predictions on the calendar, I got pregnant the second month of trying. I switched the app to pregnancy mode. The app turns into one of the best pregnancy apps I use. BUT there’s one problem that’s pretty annoying. I went to my first ultrasound toward the end of what I thought was my 8th week of pregnancy, and the OB estimated that I was really almost a week ahead of what Flo predicted (based on my last period and average cycle length). I tried to change how far along I really was on the app, but it wouldn’t let me! There’s an option to change how far I was, but it would let me select an option that was ahead of the app prediction. I even tried to change the due date in hopes of changing the week I am in, but that didn’t work either. This is annoying because the “daily insights” aren’t synced up with my biological timeline, so I don’t have much use for the app anymore. I cancelled my premium subscription and I’ll be using a couple other pregnancy tracking apps that have let me change my progression time..Version: 8.12.1
LOVE but read before downloading.This is an amazing app, on the first day of high school I bleed through my jeans and said never again, and decided to get a tracking app so that I could better see when that day would come, and this app helped TREMENDOUSLY. I love it, it’s pretty accurate, it gives you a lot of cool information and ideas when it comes to your own body and what’s happening to us during this time period. And often, little chats will pop up where the robot will “talk” to you and tell you more about what’s going on with YOUR body. And I feel like this app is very personal and that’s why I love it. With that being said, I don’t pay for premium and I don’t think I ever will but I can see that paying for premium has a lot of benefits! Like better tips, articles you can read, all kinds of things. And I also think the app does ask me to upgrade a lot but a simple click of the X button and it’s gone, no big deal to me. Long story short, great app, recommend getting, especially if you’re going to pay for premium, but I can see myself shopping around for a different, better tracker soon..Version: 9.6
Love this appI actually love this app. I rarely buy apps or subscriptions to anything. I, like many others, really think long and hard before downloading an app and especially if I have to pay for it. I originally downloaded the app for ovulation tracking while trying to get pregnant. I found the tracking and inputting of info to be really easy. It took a few months to get enough info for an accurate reading, but the app mentioned this was necessary several times so I understood it took time. I’m also a healthcare professional so I have an understanding of how the body works. I also really liked the interactive health assistant feature. I found it to be really informative and liked clicking on the related articles to learn more. I love how all the articles are written or reviewed by licensed OBGYNs. The info/education is vetted by actual experts as opposed to info you get from just googling. Overall it’s really eased anxiety around the ovulation and conceiving process. It can be a stressful process, especially when things do go as planned. The educational info is really what keeps me coming back. Would highly recommend..Version: 8.7.1
Some suggestionsFirst let me say I really like the app and the period predictions have been pretty accurate, or at least they were! i’ve been having a lot of stress and my cycle has been all messed up so it’s not the app’s fault. however, I do have a suggestion:
there are options in the symptoms menu under “other”. u can mark travel, stress, disease/injury, and alcohol intake. all of these can affect your cycle. my proposal is to add an option that’s “on new medication”. it would be helpful if you could come up with a MEDICALLY ACCURATE list of possible interaction these medications might have in reference to menstrual cycles. i’ve recently been on a new journey trying to find some medication that works, and I’m pretty sure it effects my cycle, but my doctor is a man when I asked about it he didn’t know. I know a solution could be to get a new doctor but you don’t know how slim the pickings are around me!
another idea: maybe y’all can collaborate with costar or the pattern and have a fun section where u can read your horoscope. definitely make it optional but i can see a huge market for this! could be kind of fun!.Version: 8.9.2
This app is ASTOUNDING!!I honestly don't even have the words for awesome this app is. You can tell that the thought, time, and effort put into developing this app was phenomenal!!! A place where women from all backgrounds can come together to talk about ANY AND EVERYTHING and you find out that you all can relate; and the best part is that they respect your privacy without making you feel insignificant! They have physician advice to read over as well as anything that can be going with u from sex, cycles, relationships, kids, pregnancy, just life in general! Im so attached to this app and it's something I can just lay in the bed and do..... This is a great way to relax and open up and just talk with no judgement...And its predictions are pretty much spot on as far as dates of cycles, ovulations, etc etc... It takes you step by step as far as everything and its geared specifically FOR YOU and your body for whatever you could be going thru. I had the basic free plan but I opted for the yearly plan because it's well worth the money! You all have done an amazing job and I just want to say thank you so much! This app is def MY favorite!.Version: 8.7.1
Almost PerfectI love this app, and all the options it allows. Especially the symptoms it allows you to add day by day, it really helps me figure out my cycle and how my body is responding to my life. The app is relatively easy to use, and pretty customizable. The two main things that I wish to see updated in this app, is the option for the app to tell you how many days late you are. Currently if you are late, instead of reflecting that, it just keeps pushing your "expected period" date to the next day. I have been trying to find a way to see if i'm missing a setting to add this feature but so far no luck. I really like that feature on other apps so hopefully Flo adds it.
And number two and perhaps the most important, I wish it allowed you to add a PREVIOUS pregnancy. It allows you to go through add previous periods so it can give you an accurate cycle length/prediction, however no options to add previous pregnancies which I think would prove very helpful to the app being able to predict future periods/pregnancies.
Also I would like to have the option to add a personal picture instead of just the avatar but it's not really that big of a deal.
All in all I love this app and highly recommend it!.Version: 4.67
Best app for tracking, haven’t found one like it for free yetI don’t think I’ve really ever left a review on the App Store, but I want to with Flo. I’ve used Flo since I started having periods 3.5 years ago. They offer great deals if you want their premium feature (it doesn’t have that much different things from the regular feature) and the app has a great base structure. It’s easy to use and has insights and tips everyday. There’s also the AI assistant. It’s been sooooo accurate with their predictions, like when it says it’s my day to start and I don’t it already logs it as late/possible day without me logging it. I just think that’s considerate because I can be a lazy person sometimes. I do, however wish that they could possibly put in a birth control feature other than the pill and the morning after, and possibly make predictions around that according to what day you got what you did. They also make sure to say they don’t sell your personal data and information. “Your body. Your data.” And that you can delete your data at any time. Good on you, Flo! I don’t think I’ll need another app!.Version: 9.1
Not an educational toolThe symptom tracking is great and allows me to follow my period more closely. As a concept overall, I love the app, but in practice, there are some major downfalls…
One large issue is the exclusive premium content. Almost NONE of the content is free, not even the most basic articles. I understand that the app needs to profit, but it leaves many users curious about topics they can’t even read about.
My other issue with the app is the forums. New posts are rarely added, leaving the feature unusable after going through topics. Though, the bigger issue with the forums is the lack of admins and experts addressing responses. Having a poll concerning medical issues and allowing just anyone to respond has led to many top comments that are totally misleading. I honestly find this dangerous and neglectful. Women already have a lack of sexual education, allowing posts to perpetuate harmful and misleading ideas only hurts them more. I can’t even count the number of posts I’ve seen discussing risky forms of “birth control” and comments scaring young girls with the idea that sex should be painful. Without admins and experts actually going though comments, posts are becoming conservative echo chambers that are not fact based..Version: 6.13
I reached my goal I can tell you thatSo like many other girls I used to not track my period cuz I thought it would be a waist of time. I felt like it came when it wanted to cuz before flo my period sometimes lasted for two weeks and I got scared or it didn’t come at all for the whole month. It was acting weird so one day I ran across flo on some advertisement on Instagram and I decided to give it a try. After see how flo has the option to log when you think you may get conceived and when you have sex I started logging my information in a little more accurately. I kept taking a whole bunch of pregnancy strip test and I thought that the store was selling fake ones cuz they kept turning out negative and I was sexually active with not protection. Then one day I took the test think it’s no use it’s probably negative again and when I looked at that strip I was so excited to see a second pale line trying it’s best to hide from me but I saw it😁I was probably two weeks pregnant and I could tell because I tract the first day of my last period on flo. I’m still using it today to track my pregnancy!.Version: 7.0
Love this app!I used MyDays to track my cycle for years, I saw a sponsored ad to try Flo about 2 years ago and it’s been extremely helpful! I’ve always had pretty regular cycles, but this app is so much easier to use and I feel like it’s been very accurate for me. I have been able to successfully time ovulation and conceive my first child with the help of this app! I love the pregnancy mode and the helpful daily insights. One feature I’ve really come to love and appreciate is the insights being more tailored to me. I was a little apprehensive of being asked to identify my race/ethnicity a few weeks ago, but now I’ve noticed that the insights have been so much more relatable and I think that’s absolutely amazing!!! I read so much stuff online about pregnancy and childbirth and my first thoughts are always about how the material relates to certain groups of women, compared to others. I love that the developers have taken this into consideration. I would like to suggest that not only Flo, but more if not all, pregnancy and childbirth resources provide more info and materials for single women or women who are not in traditional man/woman relationships or marriages..Version: 4.22
Best period tracker app everAfter 5 years of having an IUD, I finally had it taken out 18 days ago. I was so excited to have a period again! My period finally came, and I was able to track it on the Flo App. I’ve never tracked my period before in my life ( being 16 when I got the IUD ). As an adult now, this is my favorite app. It teaches so much that I’ve never known. I am using this app to help me recognize all phases of my menstrual cycle and to track my period, and to practice the FAM method for preventing pregnancy for when I have a boyfriend in the future. I am learning so much with this app, like recognizing symptoms of pre-ovulation and much more! I’m like, oh! That’s what that blob is ^ . ^ haha. Seriously it is teaching me so much about my body. After 5 years of the Mirena IUD causing depression, unnaturally produced hormones, depersonalization, and lack of control, getting it taken out along with downloading this app were two major improvements to my life this year! Being in control and knowing what’s happening when makes me love my period ❤️ Lastly, I the Flo App and recommend it to anyone who can get a period..Version: 7.3
I Love This App!I have been using Flo consistently for years! I started using them when I was about 15 maybe 16 (I'm going on 22 now) to better predict my cycles and give me a heads up (I worked and went to school so I didn't always keep track of days) and have never strayed from them. Not only does it track my cycle down to a freaking T-literally always accurate- but I used it during my pregnancy and loved the insights and tools it had for this mode as well! Though it does offer premium now (which I don't personally have) the free version is perfect for a simple tracking app! But don't let the option for premium make you think you can't enjoy all the other things it offers-with the free version I still do certain surveys pertaining to my health and can get basic insight on things I may be concerned about around my cycle dates-if anything premium just gives you a bit more so if you want that bit more than I'm sure premium would be great. Overall THANK YOU for keeping the app as amazing with the free version! I hope this never changes!.Version: 5.8.2
Not woman-owned, Paywall is a slap in the faceI’d been using Clue up till now. I read that Flo had some additional tracking options (such as indicating when you change your chosen period collection method and, if applicable, how much you collected). They must have still been rolling out the feature because I didn’t have it or find a way to enable it.
But the paywall is why I’m writing this review. Literally everything except tracking your period and a generally unhelpful and unmonitored community chat is locked behind that $50 subscription. If I track a symptom consistently and the app recommends an article to me, just let me read it. Or at least a portion of it. Don’t immediately hit me with the ad to subscribe. The frequency of that ad alone is enough to make me not want to subscribe.
And don’t get me started on the community chat. It NEEDS to be moderated. There is some straight up harmful garbage there (not all but enough).
I also did some digging and the app is not woman-owned or founded (which is important to me). Some entrepreneur guy founded it and as far as I can tell they don’t use revenue from the app to support any women’s causes.
I think I’ll be going back to Clue, where at least it’s designed by women, for women, and has a more thoughtful paywall..Version: 4.69
Chat Boxes and More (very important)I’ve had this app for almost a year and I was cool with it and all but they took the chat boxes/comment section away. I understand the articles like up to your daily log ins, but when they had comment sections, you really got to talk to people with similar problems and get advice. Now, it’s just article after article. I used to spend close to an hour on the app in a day but now it’s five minutes to quickly jot my mood. I hope you bring back the comment section because I got a lot of help from it.
Also, update the moods or what you are feeling and the symptoms like headaches backaches. What about stomachaches? They don’t always fall under cramps. And the sleep monitor, you should be allowed to manually input the minutes. I don’t like that it rounds my 26 minutes to 30 when it’s less because it’s not 100% accurate.
Lastly, you should have different times of the day where you ask how we are feeling. Like, at 7-8am you ask our morning mood, then around 11-1pm you ask our mood then because no one is consistently happy from when they wake to when they sleep and no one is angry either. People have periods when their emotions change hourly so that should be taken into account..Version: 4.7.0
Love this app!!I love this app so much it has helped me track my period so I always know when to expect it and when to expect my pms symptoms so I can keep those more under control. I also love the info features and little pop up quizzes and info! It’s so great to be able to learn more about what is happening with my body during each part of my cycle.
My only recommendation would be to add the option of having a miscarriage. I unfortunately had to go through this but without being able to put it in the app as an option all my future periods and ovulation dates were predicted off and I was back at square one. I know all women’s bodies are different but I think having more info on miscarriages and even the ability to put it in the app to understand what happened to my body during that time would be incredibly helpful. I’m sure there is something in the chat but I don’t particularly like the chats very much it’s a lot of contradicting and I don’t know what’s accurate and what’s not but if you had this option it would be so amazing to be able to gain information and more accurate predictions..Version: 6.2
More of a media maybe?This whole app is real nice with the tracking part but the “insights” articles should have a separate chat on it (I heard there use to be) but it should totally come back. There’s so many nice people supporting each other and so many people getting answers to their questions on topic or not. For all the consistent off topic chats it would be awesome if there were a separate part where we could make a small chat. I don’t know how I imagine this would be but it would help sort the people with the same questions so if someone does know the answer they don’t have to keep repeating and repeating and repeating themself’s over and over again so they only have to say it once where everyone who had the same question could see it. Also it would be cool if you could have a check box or something in the settings to where you can manage your “don’t show me post like this” so you can say “on or off” so if you don’t want to see the post on that topic now but might change your mind later...I’m not sure how difficult this would be for the people actually making it for but it’s something to wrap your minds around I guess... O.o.Version: 4.12.2
Awsome, but I have a requestSo this app is awsome! I love it, but I do have a request. So I’m a trans guy (ftm) and I still have my period, so I was just wondering if there could be a secret chat for trans guys? I just think it would be nice to talk to others about this? Anyway great app!🖤.Version: 5.5
Whats the big deal?Honestly i dont really care if facebook knows when im having my period. I dont care if everyone knows im on my period, in fact i would like them too know.
So people need to stop freaking out over the fact that our data is going to facebook.
This is a great app over all.Version: 4.28.0
Pretty goodIt’s a great app, it lets you track your feelings, your weight, symptoms etc.
Also, it’s quite accurate and it lets you log any day as your period if it does come unexpectedly.
The only problem I have is when you add your age, you must be 13 or older to log your period.
And it irritates me as I’m 11 and many girls my age and even younger get their period at such a young age.
Anyways, overall this app is great for tracking your periods and cycle.
Goodbye now..Version: 4.9.0
Late byThis new update removed the late for period by x days and now for each day late it just puts the start of your next period for the following day. It seems much less helpful now. It no longer tells you when you were originally expected to start bleeding.Version: 4.63
Women aren’t the only ones who have periodsCould you add a category for trans men or AFAB non-binary people? Women aren’t the only ones who get periods, there’s some other people who get them too..Version: 5.6
Not trans inclusiveNeeds to be people with periods not women as nonbinary people and trans men also have periods and can elect to get pregnant.Version: 6.3
Was super good until the premium happenedI feel like its the best app but the premium thing is so annoying specially when you’re in the middle of reading something and then you cant continue cuz you have to pay for premium to continue it..Version: 5.5.1
Tampon trackerWould be nice to have the option to put in the time of your last tampon change so people like me who often forget can have that.Version: 9.0
Gender neutral optionsThis app is amazing and helped me a lot with my period and stuff, but sometimes the way it addresses me bothers me. I’m non-binary and i would prefer if the app used my preferred pronouns they/them. it just makes me uncomfortable when people call me a girl or she. there’s also a lot of trans men on the app that are trying to track their periods but are being called girls too. i would like it if there was a setting so we can choose our gender or pronouns that we want the app to use..Version: 6.3
Belle application mais..La
Fonction graphique n’est pas suffisante.. il n’y a rien pour visualiser sa température, etc..Version: 4.10.4
Pretty Good!I’ve been using this app since I got my period (a month after I turned 10) and it’s great. It’s really fun to track what’s happening inside your body as it’s happening and through the years it’s always been accurate. I’ve never run into Facebook data issues but I am a tiny bit offended by the talk of making your vagina smell good and the articles about sexuality. It seems to me that it’s an app made for women, by men. I apologize if I’m wrong but it’s just kind of mean. Blood it coming out of me how am I supposed to smell good?? Anyway, overall it’s a good app. 👌.Version: 5.0.2
Not helpful to meFirst of all, I’m gay- so the consistent need to tell me i might be pregnant and continually ask me if I may be pregnant is extremely unhelpful and annoying. I wish there was an option to eliminate any questions or feedback around pregnancy. Second, I have PCOS. With irregular, extremely unpredictable periods it’s not helpful to be quizzed every time my periods late and have the flo assistant continually ask me what my usual cycle is- I don’t have a regular cycle and can’t pinpoint a close guess as I have between 2 and 10 periods a year.
The only use for this app for me is to use it as a calendar to track my periods for health care providers. I can do that on any app that has a calendar. I think this app has great potential and if you have a regular period and are concerned about pregnancy I’m sure it’s great. I just get very little use from it..Version: 9.14
Good, but irritating adsThis app is good for what it is, it keeps track of your periods, with the added benefit of having mood and symptom trackers. I knocked off two stars because of the extremely irritating ads that pop up constantly on the screen trying to convince you to buy premium. There isn’t an X anywhere on the screen, you have to click the button to the purchase page before you can exit the screen. It happens every time you use the app, sometimes multiple times in one session. It’s so irritating that I barely use the app. The only reason I haven’t switched to a different app is because this app has years of data. I’ve notified customer support, they said they’d pass it on to marketing, to be fair..Version: 9.14
Great app but way so pushy for PremiumI used to love this app and it still has a great layout and functionality. But it’s SO pushy to get you to upgrade to their paid premium version. Constantly giving me options and buttons to use and then shoving me to the paywall. It’s annoying enough to get me to quit using it..Version: 8.1
WhyyyGreat app for period tracking except every time you try to check your period it forces you to click on 500 things that you don’t need.Version: 8.1
AdsToday I went to log my symptoms and got an add for a sale that I could not exit out of until I clicked "get my offer".
I just want to track my symptoms, y'all. Please don't make it so we have to go to a purchase page to exit out of an ad..Version: 8.0.2
Not LGBTQ+ FriendlyI like the app a lot, it’s very aesthetically pleasing and well organised, but it ain’t LGBTQ+ friendly unfortunately, as in its very cis oriented. I believe that period apps should really take into consideration the sexuality of the person for it to be every more accurate to the individual using the app. For example if you’re lesbian, protected or unprotected sex doesn’t necessarily apply, nor does your chances of getting pregnant.
I may be the only one on this but sometimes when I try to be as accurate as possible for my period, some parts just don’t relate to me!.Version: 6.13
