Are menstrual cycle apps frustrating for women?
When journalist Orla Berry received a message on her iPhone informing her that her periods could start “any day in the next three weeks”, she shared it on social media for fun.
This is not the first time she has received such an unsolicited message from the Period Tracker app, which has been shared on Orla’s social media to share her stories with others. Opportunity found.
“I received a message stating that my periods are 56 days late.”
Another said, “I got the message sometime in the next nine days.
One person said that when they installed the app, the Period Tracker in their smartwatch was automatically activated and kept telling them that the days of their periods were near. While they never had periods.
Of course, there are problems with these apps – everyone knows that periods rarely come on time. But can these apps be trusted?
