So, that’s why we’ve been working on a range of dynamic cycle features for your My Cycles section to make keeping on top of your menstrual health as effortless as possible.

I do not control when I get my period so I do not agree with the fact that u have to be 13 because I am and 11 year old with a period
I’ve been using Flo for years and really like the app. I would like to see some more symptoms added such as itchy skin and hot flushes both very common symptoms when coming up to ovulation or the start of menstruation.
Perhaps you could add in a menopause section to the app so these symptoms are also tracked
hi! i have been using this app because i got my period recently and wanted to learn more. i cant do that if most of the articles/whatever need premium to read? the section is titled “what teens need to know” but i cant read it unless i pay? other than this it’s a great app and pretty accurate too! i like the secret chat too ;)
not inclusive to any trans/nonbinary people who don’t identify as women but still get periods. i get that it is mostly women who get periods, but it would be nice to see more gender neutral terms used as opposed to “women” or “female health” and such. just a suggestion.
Such a shame, I’d used this app for ages and loved it until they started showing blocker screens that forced you to go through a thousand mandatory screens to force you to pay for the upgrade. You can’t click “exit”, have to go through the whole thing where it takes you to the payment screen in the end. The last straw for me was when this last time it took me directly to the payment screen without even asking and asked me to double click without informing me what I was even paying for or me having accepted the upgrade or asked to pay for it.
HAD TO DELETE IMMEDIATELY.
If you’re ok with endless heckling every time you open the app, go for it.
As a female under the age of 13 who wants to track her period can’t. The age required to be 13. I think it should be put lower for the younger females who are going through puberty as well!
This app seems good and all but I’m 12 years old and I just started my period and it doesn’t let me choose my year of birth because I’m to young. The app thinks I started mine ages ago so it predicts women’s periods not my age. I hope one day there’s an update that makes it so anyone can have the app for there age.
i’ve used this app for years. it used to be a lot better before an update a while back that means you can barely open it without being asked to pay these days. it was still okay for seeing when my period would come, but my cycle has changed naturally over the years i’ve had the app and it refuses to update my predictions, even after several months of having a regular cycle. even when i go to the settings and manually tell it my cycle length has changed it will still predict a 28 day cycle. considering deleting it now as it clearly doesn’t take anything you log into account. it’s okay if you’re super regular, but honestly with the amount of pop ups asking you to pay and the lack of adaptability i’d just use a regular calendar.
This is a super app for tracking cycles and learning more about your body.
The only thing I would like to see is an option to add diagnoses such as PCOS etc. to make it more accessible/relevant for everyone :)
Honestly this app has helped me alottt so I recommend you girls getting it
I’m 11 and born in 2009 so this app doesn’t even have an option for my age 👎 it’s annoying to me since I have had many heavy flows and want a good tracker for my cycle. It’s a bit dumb since 8+ people have periods. If you can could you change that factor.
Best regards, Isabelle x
why would i pay money to track my period? it’s hardly enjoyable?!
Used to be a brilliant app that was way better than most but now everything is payable, you need to pay for story features, all options lead to premium. Disappointing.
The app should be a bit more intuitive following update of “no longer pregnant”. Getting notifications about taking a pregnancy test following a miscarriage is quite distressing. There should be some kind of reset function following a miscarriage.
I am a woman over 40, and this app is absolutely fantastic, tells me everything I need to know, and is so accurate as well. I’ve been using Flo for 4 months and it is so useful when I speak to my doctors, I’ve got all the information I need.
Very helpful for young teens, in depth but easy to understand and use regularly. Accurate predictions, and although you get a lot extra with the premium version, the app is great by itself and it is in no way essential for using the app.
i really don’t think we should have to pay for an app that helps us and gives us knowledge on our periods, pregnancy, puberty etc. it seems really silly that we have to pay for premium to unlock certain things. anyone else feel like this? it’s a good app tho.
This app is amazing and it’s free! However I had my period young and it wouldn’t let me put in the age I had my period but overall I recommend.
i’ve used this app for 4 years, it was great back when it would just notify me when i was going to start my period and that was all, but in the last 8ish months it’s turned a bad corner.
now you get notifications- that you can’t turn off- talking about inappropriate topics such as “why your discharge can be a funny colour!!” which could be very embarrassing if someone was to see!! i contacted support and was basically told “well sorry you feel that way”
they’ve also added a monthly subscription..? for what, mother nature? disgusting. there is 0 need.
i recommend using another app, this ones been going downhill for a long time, this just broke the camels back for me.
The only thing I have a problem is that when I’ve tried to log my period for this month and edit the period dates, the app crashes and it goes off the app. No matter how many times I try to edit the period dates.
This app is amazing for tracking your menstrual cycle. It gives u an estimation on when it should end and it gives u facts about it. Just log in what your symptoms are and they will look x
I have been using the app for a while and disappointed to find none of the photos you can choose as your background represent any woman or child of colour or race. The background image shows a white pregnant woman and the a white baby. The information doesn’t include help and support for the problems many women of colour face during before and after pregnancy.
I’ve been using this app for a year or so now to track my periods and plan for pregnancy. The interface is lovely and easy to navigate, the design is very pretty, and having a calendar record of my cycles is very helpful.
A few areas for improvement:
- having become pregnant a lot of the advice is American. For example in the UK we don’t have OBGYNs, we don’t get to choose what sort of maternity advisor we have, we don’t routinely get scans at 8 weeks. When I was first pregnant I was excited to find out what steps I should take, who to contact, how to book appointments etc, but none of the advice was relevant for me. I do have a paid subscription so this was disappointing
- swiping between weeks on the calendar doesn’t drag the day of the week with the date. This is a minor thing but it drives me wild because I often want to glance and understand which dates in the coming weeks will be on which days, but you have to properly scroll
- unfortunately I had a miscarriage earlier in the year. I was expecting a more tailored in app experience when this happened. I thought there would be more articles in my daily tips, and more advice. The date I found out I had a missed miscarriage wasn’t the date I completed the miscarriage, and that wasn’t handled well in the app, I ended up back in the regular flow a lot more abruptly than I wanted. The first set of articles I got on the day I switched back from pregnancy mode we’re about mastering your orgasm, which felt in pretty poor taste to be honest while I was only just getting up to speed with what had happened to me.
- there’s a daily video about discharge but it’s always blurry for me. Actually quite a few videos are blurry. I’m also not a huge fan of consuming video content so I wish it were easier to find any corresponding text articles.
- when I was first pregnant I found it quite hard to find where to switch to pregnancy mode. It took the sparkle away a little because I was so excited and ready to hit an ‘I have a positive test’ button and in the end I had to hunt around.
- when your period is late your predicted start date shifts forward. At first I was confused by this, thinking I’d misremembered which date I was expecting it. It continues to jump forward which threw me off when I was first pregnant. I was excited for the date to come each month in the hope my period wouldn’t show, so when it was moving I was just disappointed every day even though I was actually pregnant. It would be nice to record the original prediction and then have something the following days saying that it’s later than expected but could just be fluctuations in the cycle length
- when my discharge didn’t match the expected discharge I didn’t know what this meant. Probably it was different because I was pregnant, but at the time I was wondering what to do with this information but couldn’t find any articles on it
I’ve only had this app for over a day and it’s already changed the way I think about periods. It’s really nice to see other people females struggles although it’s hard for them it helps me see I’m not alone.
I can track everything on here, not only is it insanely accurate but it also helps me understand more about my body.
The secret chats enable me to relate to others and Flos insights are perfect for making me more aware of my cycle and symptoms. I also use it to track other stuff such as headaches and moods. The free options are just as good as the paid for ones too!
Overall it’s the best app, no other is as helpful or as accurate.
it entertains me to read all the questions and comments cause i don’t have tiktok anymore , i ran out of storage, so it’s something to do
The only way to stop them sending their useless articles on a daily basis to turn off notifications in your phone because the app doesn’t give you the opportunity for this. Absolute nightmare. Looking for another app with decent notifications settings where I can choose what to receive. I’ve contacted their customer service but obviously they couldn’t be bothered to reply. Just another waste of space on my phone…
flo is so great ! the app appearance is fab and i love that it is customisable, easy to use, and includes a large range of moods and symptoms to choose from. i have been using it since my very first cycle. i just recently started the pill and i was hoping to be able to track that as-well, only to find out it’s not an option! i would love to have that as a feature so i can monitor how it’s going. hope it can come as a new feature sometime soon, it would really help a lot.
really accurate readings
The app is usually quite good, however there’s nowhere to say that I’m breastfeeding and that could change my period cycles. I think that’s quite an important detail to have been missed.
I like the app but I feel like I would enjoy the app more if it was more gender neutral/ had a gender neutral option because I’m trans (ftm) and hate how it marked for just women which makes me very dysphoric
Predictions of when period should start are surprisingly accurate most of the time! Annoying how you can’t access articles or chats without paying for the subscription tho. Love secret chats discussing with others who can relate and don’t have to hold back as it’s anonymous
Hi! I have been using this app for about a year now, and have found it very helpful. The predictions are accurate and the other features (health advice, symptoms logging etc.) are all really useful and a nice touch for the app. The thing that really sets Flo apart however, are its “secret chats”. I love being able to access a friendly, helpful and supportive community of other people who menstruate, completely anonymously.
The one thing I would say, however, is I would really appreciate changing some of the gendered language used in the titles of specific chats. These terms (such as “womanhood”, and “girls”) could be highly saddening for people who menstruate and are not, in fact, girls, for instance, trans men, non-binary people and those who are gender-fluid etc.
Personally, as a cisgender, heterosexual woman, I think we should be supporting the LGBTQ+ community as much as possible, and changing the titles to words such as “adulthood” and “people” could help these people feel more validated and, anything we can do to prevent gender dysphoria deserves to be done.
I hope you take into consideration this, and change it in the nearby future, to make Flo more inclusive for ALL who menstruate.
A 14 year old Flo user.
it’s nice to have a community of people to talk about periods and other girly stuff anonymously that you would feel uncomfortable to talk to people about in real life.
Good app but unfortunately it has stopped working for me. It doesn’t allow me to open the app
Used this app since 2017 with no problems, but I’ve noticed recently on the widget it doesn’t highlight the days your period is due (they used to show up pink) or any other key days. I used to use the widget to make a quick check (good for doctors appointments/planning holidays etc) but now it looks like just a standard calendar. If this could be reversed that would be so helpful
The app is great to track your cycle (or part of it as this might not be 100% accurate).
I like Flo and have it for years, but lately you cannot access ANY articles or have a full conversation with the “electronic assistant”, it’s just very annoying.
Why don’t you have a section for Flo free users and another one for premium? Just bear in mind not everyone can afford to be paying for an app monthly, but their usage can still bring you profits.
i love the secret chats, it’s such a safe place where you can talk about anything and everything anonymously to a massive community (where there are no usernames so nobody knows who each other are). It’s great because everyone supports each other and the different experiences and advice is REALLY useful.
It’s a great app with a community section with lots of people who have periods discussing different aspects of life. My only issue with this app is that there’s nothing on abortion. No articles or community discussions, some people would definitely benefit from having a community of uterus-havers to talk to about this.
Absolutely useless if considering ivf, or if you’re already pregnant via ivf. The only mention of it is in the due date calendar. I removed the app after 15 mins. So many better apps and free help and advice and planning online . health. Useless
Hello , I think the app is amazing for tracking periods and things .. but then the flow assistant pops up and wants to talk you can never talk a full conversation without .. having to buy premium . That’s my only concern other than that the rest is awesome .
For any ladies that have used/ planning to use this app, please be aware that they have been involved in a data breach since 2016, I know this as I have received an email and I am aware that my sensitive data has been sold/given away to third parties. This app does not care for women’s health as much as they do about profit. I would give this app zero stars and a trip to court if I had the means to do so.
Says it’s free until demands payment! Annoyed at this as wanted to give this app a go
In symptoms please add ‘hot sweats’- it’s the only way I know when my period is due.
Please also add hiking or walking as an exercise option - it’s just as valid as those listed.
The app is fine, but they decided at some point to “upgrade” me to a pregnancy premium 1 year subscription without consulting me. I’m not pregnant…! They just decided to subscribe me. I only realised what they did after seeing the money charged to my bank account. Didn’t even receive a receipt…! DO NOT FALL IN THIS TRAP!!!
I really love Flo. I like to know what’s going on in my body and how it might affect my day to day life, which the app easily tells me each day with personalised insights- and it even goes further and gives excellent women’s health information via an extremely cute, warm and inviting UI! My one wish is that there was an iPad version of the app as it feels like a crime to ruin the lovely visuals by blowing up the iPhone app and it’s harder to use the app with slightly off proportions. The experience on the iPad isn’t amazing so I just use the app on my phone, which is still excellent! If iPad was supported it would easily get 5 stars from me.
The app is pretty good but the one thing that I didn’t like at the start is that you have to be over 13 to use the app which I think is personally unfair because some girls get their period on a much earlier age and that for example I’ve got mine at 11 so they have to lie about their age just use the app which I don’t think is fair but besides the point it tracks your period pretty well and I don’t really like the point that you have to pay premium to get more facts about your period which item should be free but overall tracking your period and helping you track your cycle and ovulation is pretty nice.
Selected monthly payment but a years payment was taken from my bank, not happy!
im a trans guy and i literally just wanted to track my period but yk ur apps making me dysphoric and feel invalid 👍👍?? or do you guys just dont want trans men to use ur app and stuff? bc were afab yk and we still get period
I don’t review apps but I’ve been using this app for about 5 years now, I downloaded other period apps and this one I like the best, it’s simple, customisable and does the job.
It’s mostly accurate about when I’ll have my period, sometimes it’s a few days off but I don’t mind as I prepare to have my period either a bit before the predicted date or after. I’m currently on the pill and I love the pill reminder, as someone with bad memory the amount of times it’s saved me I can’t count😂 Also I love that you get a reminder the day before saying that you start your pill again the next day, very handy.
Overall I love this app and haven’t found another that matches it or isn’t over complicated or non-customisable, definitely recommend!
Been using this app for a few years and its really great for period tracking. When i became pregnant recently I switched to the pregnancy tracker and that was great too to see how the baby was coming along. However, I unfortunately experienced a miscarriage and I felt that this is where the app became really insensitive and disappointing. When I logged that I had a miscarriage it asked if I wanted any articles or chats to help get through it but I never saw anything at all to help me, instead it just went empty. it showed my miscarriage but it seemed to have wiped everything else i had worked up over the years and now it gives pretty insensitve notifications about chats about pregnancy and baby bumps. It now is just waiting for me to log my next period but other than that you would think iv only just starting to use it. This needs looking at as I wouldnt expect an app that is supposed to track and support to be so useless now I have experienced this.
I’ve had this app for just over a year now. My cycles are very irregular; having the tech to be able to track this monthly into a graph has helped me express to my doctor how serious my issue is, leading to me now finally being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome, which has also explained a lot of other issues I had with my body/mental health, so this app played a huge part in my life.
The only thing I would say to improve is that because of this, the app is not giving me an accurate prediction for my period. Most of my cycle lengths have been over 100 days but because of anomalies I feel that the app doesn’t always account this. For example when I took emergency contraceptive, it forced me to have a period that I 100% wouldn’t have had. But this was added to the algorithm and it made my “average cycle length” lower when it shouldn’t have been. Other than that, the app is incredible and I’d recommend to anyone and everyone☺️
This app was good once I was into the useful part but the survey asking you practically everything about your life kept popping up with no button showing to exit - not sure if the aim here was to get me to sign up to premium membership. I’m sure I used this app before and it wasn’t so riddled with things trying to get you to pay. In the end it was too annoying and I deleted it and started using a different app. The basic functionality once you pass all that is much like any other app so I’d rather go with one that is less of a barrage about premium membership. Also had quite annoying notifications, not about predictions of your period but about random things (you can turn them off though of course but then you don’t get useful ones either).
Fab app! I love that you can use it for different purposes - period tracking/trying to conceive and pregnancy.
I’m using it for trying to conceive. I am able to enter my period dates manually as they occur but Flo predicts my ovulation/fertility dates and these are not adjustable by the user.
My suggestion is that ovulation dates can be manually adjusted by the user, based on when they use ovulation tests. Sometimes Flo’s ovulation predictions are proven inaccurate by the ovulation tests. It would be useful to have a way of visually monitoring my ovulation test results on the calendar.
Also Flo has introduced stories to the app which I love, but when it gives advice around their predicted ovulation it’s not synced up with when I’m actually ovulating. Therefore the stories don’t feel relevant to me because they’re not synced to what stage my body is actually going through. If ovulation dates were adjustable then then Flo could recalculate that month and give me relevant advice for the stage I am at.
Other that this, the app is great. And the secret chats are a great support. It’s great to be able to openly share and discuss with other women.
I find this app is very useful for tracking periods and symptoms, knowing when I’m most, at risk I’ll say (I’m 17), of getting pregnant and when I’m not. However I find it very irritating that If I’m wanting for find out more details about any of my symptoms, things that are new to my cycle etc... I have to pay to be able to find all of this out. I understand I can always look it up however I find it very nerve racking as information is inaccurate and sends me on a frenzy of fear about what’s happening. And I can’t imagine I am the only one, there are probably many young girls new to periods who can’t get the right information either. Other than this issue (personally for me with no source of income) the app is overall good.
This app was great when I first downloaded it 2 years ago, but has massively gone downhill since then. It used to offer relevant content (some for free some for premium members), however in the past year has turned into a basic a calendar for those who do not want to pay for premium memberships with constant sales pushes. It is also extremely insensitive to those unfortunate enough to have experienced a miscarriage during pregnancy. It makes you go through the steps of logging a missed miscarriage, then asks you to log the last day of your first period to start tracking again. Except to do that you have to manually exit the pregnancy mode (despite the fact you have already recorded a miscarriage), which means the app wipes all of the pregnancy records and puts you at over 60 days (in my case) overdue for your period. Absolute joke. In addition when pregnancy mode was activated it somehow puts you a week ahead of the reality and tells you you’re further along by 1 week as a opposed to the medical test results. It’s confusing and annoying. Massively disappointed in the app that previously I would have recommended to friends.
I’ve been using this app for over a year now, at first to track my cycle and for the last few months to track ovulation as we are TTC. I’d be lost without it for tracking ovulation because my memory is rubbish and also my cycle has been irregular. So for that I am thankful. However after a few unsuccessful months trying to conceive, and trying to maintain a positive mindset during those 2 weeks between trying and hoping that your period doesn’t come, every time I open the app in the few days before a new cycle is due to start, I’m greeted with the question “have you noticed any pre menstruation symptoms today?” Which just throws me off and makes me anxious. I wish that when you set your goals to track ovulation that they switch these little period questions off because I find it disheartening 😞 other than that it is a great app.
The functions and features of the app are great. They’ve made tracking my periods, managing my PCOS and tracking my pregnancy easy over the past 2 years.
However, I feel like there’s a big issue with the advice and content offered within the app (specifically with the premium subscription) in that it is 100% set within the context of a US healthcare system and US medical norms.
I live in the UK, and the excessive bias in the app when using it to tracking my pregnancy made it feel like I wasn’t gaining much benefit from the in app content that I was paying for and at times it was just plain confusing for me as a non-US user.
I think the app would benefit from publishing more culturally generic content. After all, all women who menstruate/go through pregnancy are sharing that experience, regardless of its cultural context.
I feel that publishing content set within with wider context of western medicine and acknowledging when giving US specific advice would help users know what’s for them and help them feel less alienated from the some of the app’s content.
If you just want to track your periods, I can’t fault this app. But be mindful of whether the premium version of this app is the best option for you if you do not live in the US.
I used to really appreciate this app, but have found over the last year that is has become annoying, irritating and pushy in all the same ways that made me leave other period apps over the years. Before, I could just track my periods and symptoms, now it’s full of ‘health assistants’ and ‘daily insights’ that just get in the way with information and recommendations I don’t need nor want. Not to mention you can’t really tailor it to yourself (or at least not on a standard account, I haven’t tried premium). I can’t begin to tell you how many fitness and exercise notifications I’ve received... I’m physically disabled, I can’t use them or make use of them, but seemingly can’t get rid of them either. I just wanted a standard tracking app, not a big, flashy, all singing-all dancing app.
If you just want a standard period tracker, this is no longer the app I would recommend.
Edit: in response to the teams halfhearted reply below, I’m not looking to disable notifications entirely. I still need period reminder notifications. It’s the useless (to me) exercise notifications that I can’t edit nor amend that are irritating. ‘I’M disabled’ not ‘I WANT to disabled them’. Is it an automated reply that only picks up on keywords?
I recommend to any girl who wants to keep track of their cycle and learn more things about themselves. This app helps you understand what things are. You can ask questions on the app when certain things come up which is quite useful.
Only thing that’s a little annoying is that there are some things I really wanted to know the answers to.. and I’m too scared and awkward to talk to someone else about it and the answers are usually on Flo. I found what I was looking for but it was premium, meaning I’d have to pay for it. And I’m not allowed to spend money on apps 🙃.
Other than that it’s great with everything else. And the community on that app are so nice and understanding.
It is really good at tracking and does usually predict the dates very well, it is also good for recording which symptoms and emotions you experience at certain times of the month as there are plenty of options to choose and this helps you notice your own patterns. However since the update the amount of information you can get for free has completely reduced, you can’t read any of the tips anymore in full like you used to, they’ve changed the format from helpful articles to an Instagram story kind of format where everything but the first two slides are locked which are generally introductory anyway. I understand they want you to pay but it’s a shame they took all that content away as it was what set them apart. Pre update I’d give 5 stars, now I’d give 3 as it has nothing else to offer compared to any other free period tracker app, so if you want to pay I assume that the content is as good as it was back then so I’d recommend, if you want a free app it’s too frustrating that most of it is locked away! Plenty of others will do the exact same job. But ultimately it does offer a place to input symptoms and find out your next period likely dates so I will keep using, just cannot afford to pay right now and I’m sure a lot of women feel the same in this current economic situation (Summer 2020)
This was a really good app and found it was helpful, I have been going between this app and another and both of them are pretty accurate. However, the new update is frustrating. I preferred the simplicity of recording whether your flow was light, or heavy etc... but now you have to go through several buttons to record it and don’t feel that what you see on pad is necessary an accurate measurement. Also I use reusable pads which are black so you can’t always see the flow, but I know how heavy or light it is.
Also the premium access has gotten ridiculous, things that were previously free you now have to pay for. And it’s not even cheap! 8.99 a month or pay almost 50 for a year. Other apps are a lot cheaper.
I’ve been using Flo for about 2yrs now and I love it. It’s easy to use all its features and cycle predictions change according to how regular, or not, each individual is.
I would prefer if it learnt what kinds of ‘insights’ the user doesn’t want to read about, as I don’t enjoy scrolling through stuff that isn’t relevant to me: it has a ‘Hide insight’ function, but to do this repeatedly for similar topics is tedious.
In addition, it doesn’t work very well on the Apple Watch if you haven’t already opened the app on the phone, so for example when you don’t have your phone with you when you pop to the loo and want to log a period on the watch, it will only show it as being the last date that the app was opened rather than the actual date. Makes me wonder if the watch app is of any use, so I rarely open it!
I've been using this app since I got my first period a month ago (I'm 14 :P) and it works pretty well. It's also really accurate. After my period had stopped I didn't add anything at all to the calender, and it said I would get my period exactly a month later for the longest time. Then, when the day came, it was late. I went to the app to add that it's late but I didn't have to as it had already added it. That was a little freaky as it had stayed the same for a whole month and now suddenly it was different (and correct). Nonetheless, it is a good thing that it's so accurate.
One thing I also want to add is could we maybe add our own profile pictures? Or at least not need premium to customize our own. It's just a weird thing to make premium-only.
A great app to track your period. My family wasn’t the one to talk about these things so I didn’t have anyone to talk to about it the app has secret chats were other people talk about their experiences and give tips. It’s amazing because I could go there when I first started and learn things from there and get tips. Also amazing now if you like me and have a bad memory as you get reminders when your period is close to starting so you can be prepared You can set reminders for birth control . Also It’s a great app if your trying to get pregnant it lets you know when you have a higher chance of getting pregnant.
When I first downloaded the app it was great, and the tracking part remains so. I do not pay for the subscription for various reasons but I found I had enough info on the app to be satisfied with the free version. However I’ve noticed that with the last few updates, the content you receive is less and less to the point where all you can do is track your period/pregnancy. There’s barely any point to tracking symptoms anymore as every article is available to subscription users only, where previously you could get something and then get more info if you subscribe. Now I understand some will say ‘just pay for it’ or ‘what do you expect for free’ which I get, but it’s frustrating when the app initially offered more for free and has been reducing content which I personally think is poor taste. I understand that they are a business, and it’s in their interest to make money, but this just feels like they are using this to force people into paying. If you’re happy not to receive insights in the free version then it’s perfect and still does an excellent job at tracking. If you’re irregular like me, within a few months of tracking, the app will almost have it down to the day perfectly.
Used this app for a few years and it was amazing (although not so helpful in conceiving) became perfect for tracking cycles rarely gave wrong information. But now it is time to start looking for a new one.
THIS HAS NOW BECOME A PAID FOR APP. what was the odd health insight that matches with symptoms you input it now all requires a premium subscription and free user get bombarded by ads to upgrade content pushed that then turns out is premium only. At this rate users will be extremely lucky to be able to use the secret chat or input cycle updates without having to go premium. AVOID
EDIT: Just like so many other apps with each update less and less features are usable unless you go premium (which is also increasing in price with each update). If you loved this app before it started becoming a money making theme move onto something else there are sooooo many other apps that offer exactly the same (some even more accurate than Flo and with more features) that give the “old flo” functions with no hidden charges and no constant push for subscriptions
I do really like this app as it is very easy to track ur period and also helped me when I seen a gynaecologist to get a idea of my cycle and a polyp was found 👍🏻
But I also think it would be better if you could add endometriosis an endometrial polyps etc to the app so we dnt keep getting told we have a problem that we are already aware of an the app can also be aware that we do too as even thoe I am diagnosed an not treated because corona that I’m able to keep track of my cycle we could quite easily have it where the symptoms are then tick it if we choose to just like the other ones is this possible??
I have been using this app for well over a year now and it is the best app for its purpose I’ve ever used. HOWEVER the “secret chats” section is completely toxic. There are group forums you can join based on your interests and a few chucked in for discussion. There are group chats such as “what symptoms did you notice during early pregnancy?” In order to help other women who feel they may have the same symptoms. But during my time scrolling through this I did not see one comment about any symptoms. Every single comment is from a woman about being pregnant. Congratulations, that’s amazing news, but think of the woman who’s been trying for 10 years to have a baby, desperately trying to know the signs, only to be greeted with announcement after announcement? It’s a great app, but these comments need to be monitored, it’s beginning to get out of hand and affect people’s mental health.
I have been using this app for 5 months now.
When I downloaded this app I thought it was the best thing ever. However, I quickly discovered that my predictions are almost never correct. 😞
The day I was due to ovulate or start my period according to Flo would change randomly to the following day and the day after which is very frustrating. Only 1 in my 5 months has this been accurate but only because I update it in conjunction with my ovulation tests. I understand everybody is different but I feel like Flo just takes too long to improve cycle predictions.
However, the anonymous forums are very useful for support and advice. The comments aren’t date stamped though and you can’t message someone if you make a friend etc. You have to pay a premium for courses which is not great when you already pay for the app. I was resistant to trying another app because I thought that no way could a free/cheaper one (Clue) be better than this but so far it has been and the predictions on Clue seem more accurate. I will continue to use this app for a short while to compare dates but I can’t see me wanting to pay for an app that isn’t even accurate for much longer. If anything, it just gives you very rough idea when you’re likely to start your period/ovulate.
I have had flo since I started 3 years ago and it’s still just as good and only gets better with each update. This app is really good for teens as periods change dates all the time and flo is the only app I have found that has allowed me to log it when it’s started and unlike others suggests when it’s gonna start rather than just telling me and me being unable to change it or say no it’s not today. I’m 15 and I have a lot of questions about growing up and everything to do with it and flo has always had an answer to my questions when I first got it it didn’t have the community tab so I couldn’t ask people for help or advice but now I can and it’s even better as it’s anonymous I have recommended flo to so many of my friends and I will continue to do. I have no plans to stop using flo so thank you for creating such a good app for women and girls alike. I’m sure it will only get better as time goes on I look forward to new features brought in. 👏👏
The app in itself works well, with accurate predictions of your cycle when you input the releva information needed. The issue comes regarding subscription. On Black Friday, I purchased a monthly lifetime subscription, but was then charged for the price of it all as a lump sum. I then cancelled my subscription, and emailed them expecting a refund, however after days of communication and delayed responses, they still fail to see their fault in the fact that the advert was misleading claiming one price would be taken monthly, but it was taken as a lump sum. They have directed me to Apple to report a problem and get the refund in that way, but the problem is from their fault. After looking at other reviews, I have seen that this issue isn’t mine alone and this is a problem that they have and need to find a solution for.
I got this app when it first came out and had it for a couple of years it was free and amazing was always spot on if not so close to be it was so useful in so many way. I got the implant last year and didn't get period so i deleted the app to free up space as i didn't need it. I am now getting periods again so i therefore downloaded it as i was so pleased with it beforehand to only find out about there in app purchases and I'm appalled that now this app has got popular it know wants money. Nothing helpful is free anymore and I'm so mad, the download rates will drop as no one should be willing to pay almost £10 pound a month !! So disappointed. Im going to have to find a new app!
I’ve been using this app to track my periods for a while now and I’ve never really had a problem with it. It does what it’s says it should. However, when I go to track my moods, there are limited happy options. There’s calm, happy, energetic and frisky and while these are vague enough to cover a large amount of human emotions, the other end of the spectrum has 10 negative or upsetting moodlets. I understand why there are so many, humans are complicated but a lot of the time I don’t track my actual moods because there is a limited range of happy moods available. It makes me feel like I have to be sad in order to log a detailed account on my mood.
I started off looking for a app that can track my period. I was new to it and I downloaded a few different apps to see what was a good one. In the end flo stood out the most to me. Even though you have to pay for premium and you won’t get some different things. I don’t pay for premium and the app still does a bloody good job. At first i was a bit hesitant as you get those apps that you have to pay for premium to get the goodness out of the app. But what i found out with flo you still get the best of the app without paying.
Also even if you don’t go on the app and you have your period it still knows when i am on it and not. I don’t know if it’s because i have a apple watch and its been working much better having it on as its checks your heart rate ect. I also like the app cause it gives you answers to questions that I’m too scared to tell to people. Its really helpful for bits I’m unsure with as well.
Overall I rate this app 5/5 because it is so AMAZING compared to other period apps
I had my mirena removed in March, on average it takes most couples 4-6 months to get pregnant once it’s been removed, I’ve been using this app religiously every day since March, along with taking pregnacare pills, ovulation tests (which didn’t work - I drink too much water), BBT charting and having fertility reflexology and we’ve just found out we’re pregnant - if I hadn’t used this app I have no doubts that it would have taken much longer. After over 20 failed ovulation tests, negative pregnant tests, the app kept me focused and made sure, despite everything else saying my body wasn’t doing what it should be it actually was! X
I’ve used this app for around 2 years now. It is very clever and does adapt to my cycle which changes ever so slightly, here and there. I’ve taken off one star for two reasons: because it’s not adaptable for UK English - I don’t understand some of the terms used, especially in the articles which I do enjoy reading. There is a lot of good advice but it doesn’t work for us in the UK. Is it possible to get a different version with health related articles for UK users? The other reason is there isn’t a migraine function - I suffer from hormone related migraines so it’s vital I know what is a headache and what is a migraine. I write in the notes section when it’s a headache or a migraine. I don’t wish it use another health app to track my migraines as they are completely connected to my hormones. While I’m here, I don’t enjoy the community section - people seem to use it while desperate and worried, but it’s not a suitable place to receive advice. Most comments get ignored and I find it frustrating to read. If I had a genuine health problem I wouldn’t use an app to get advice.
Greatest period tracker out there. It lets you choose what you want to track whether that’s your period or your pregnancy. You can also track your sleep, water and weight. I actually use this app with another app called moody and they sync together so well.
Also you get little articles, surveys and places to comment any questions which is so much fun because you can talk to other girls about any questions not just about periods so like sexuality, body or others things in general.
But SO MANY PEOPLE have actually commented for chat rooms which would be amazing. Lots of people have been commenting their social media names so we can talk and have a big group chat but some of us want to talk anonymously. So I think chatrooms could be great,, you could have them according to age or by different topics.
Also I saw this comment as I was browsing and I think it’s good because I’ve actually been looking for something like this. Having a little food diary in Flo would be great. You could track what you eat and drink - not just water.
Overall this is a great period tracker and I think it’s the best one out there.
I think flo is one of the easiest trackers to use but i dont like the new insights questions. for example I suffer anxiety and it gets worse when im due on, flo told me to try some intense exercise to let off some steam which would be good advice if i wasnt house bound and intense exercise could leave me so sick i cant feed myself. Another time it was about menstrual cups, again i think theyre great but i had a tumour removed from my left fallopian tube and cant use cups without pain or throwing up.. i was asked if i had ever tried them so i said yes but then i couldnt say i no longer used them it taken that as i use cups all the time. theres no options for me to get the right infomation based on MY health, not every woman has a healthy body and is able to do these things..
I love it it really helps me out when I sought of know when to expect a period. I’m really impressed with the fact that my periods are irregular and some months I have some months I don’t and Flo was able to track and see when I might have my next one. Which really helps me out. The only problem I’m having is that some days my steps are on point and I know exactly how many I have done and some other days it really doesn’t work. Like today, I went on and it said I had only done 3400 steps however on my other app I had done 12,000 steps. Normally it’s really good with the measurements however somehow I think it got stuck in the middle of the day. Because it really wasn’t working for me. I tried everything to make it work and it’s just not working. But apart from that I really recommend this app.
I have pcos, for the last year I was having regular periods until this month in which I’m almost 5 weeks late. This app would be so much more helpful if when you log symptoms you can get something to allow you to know if it’s a possible indicator to a period approaching or possible pregnancy. It’s hard to follow the predicted dates of when you should have your period as mine changes every month drastically. I use the app for my specialists to see. But I’d find it much more useful if I was able to actually use it for my periods! I have never found an app that accommodates someone with fertility issues but I feel like this one has the most potential too. Adding features or at least the medical information be more suited to me and not just around others who don’t have the issues.
Just having symptom checkers in order to determine if a period may be approaching is more helpful to me than a predicated guess due to previous month cycles.
I have recently had a miscarriage. On the app I input that I had a positive pregnancy test so therefore was expecting it to adjust accordingly however I would still continue to get notifications telling me to input my period dates (obviously I’m no longer going to have a regular period) and then upon realising I had a miscarriage I decided to put the dates I was bleeding on the app (just for personal reference and when I go to the doctor) upon doing this I got a insight about not being surprised if my period is late it may just be due to stress etc. I found the whole experience rather upsetting and will no longer be using the app. In future I think it should have better insights after you input a positive pregnancy and additionally some insights about miscarriage. After a positive pregnancy test it should no longer send users notifications about inputting their period dates and etc.
Please fix this.
I’ve used this app since the day I started my period back In 2015! It has helped me out more then you could believe. No more having to worry about your “surprise” every month because it lets you know when your gonna come on! Flo isn’t just for that though, you can put your period symptoms down for that day, and they tell you how you can prevent it or how to make it not as bad. Also flo lets you use Touch ID (for iPhone) or a password to get onto the app, just in case someone is on your phone. Flo also predicts ovulation dates and chances to get pregnant but I’m not trying to get pregnant so I do t use that. The only thing I think they could change is the age you have to be to make an account, you have to be 13 but I started me period when I was 12, not a major issue it’s just an opinion. Overall I think flo is fantastic and I definitely recommend!!!
The app itself is fine. The payment is a joke. Having read other reviews I was careful to make sure I had selected the monthly payments, however I was still charged £43 in a lump sum. Make sure you go to your subscriptions and check the monthly payment. There is no need to charge for a year with an app like this. No one wants to payout a lump sum like that, it doesn’t give you the option to cancel it then if the app doesn’t meet your needs! Or maybe that’s the point, they aren’t confident in their app, so take full payment up front expecting people to cancel. Well...I won’t be renewing next year simply because of that.
UPDATE: the developer has “helpfully” told me how to cancel this subscription...which I already know how to do and have done. This was not the issue I stated. The issue I have is that, despite selecting to pay monthly, I was charged for an entire year in a lump sum. I was warning people to double check their subscriptions once they finish the free trial, as it appears selecting the monthly payment option in the app does not work. I was explaining that it was a disappointment to discover this had happened as I feel cheated out of my money, as I now have no option to cancel if after a few cycles I find the app does not meet my needs. If the app does not meet my needs, I will now be out of pocket as I will have paid for months of use that I will not be using.
I’d recommend this app to any menstruating female. It is an app that has many helpful features such as mood trackers and of course a period diary. It always has the ability to send notifications along with anonymous chat and many useful insights. If you're looking for a period app with mood and symptoms and how heavy your period is and how it differs this is the best one on the market right now. (But tbh I think another feature like tracking your diet and more detailed visuals and smarter assistance when logging period symptoms dates and things like that, even though that may be highly ambitious. I think the mood tracker should mirror in app purchased apps daylio as that app is great for checking your mood but important features are not free of charge, so I think if flo would allow you to log your emotions and have features such as daylio would save me alot of money. Also if it could tell me if what I’m eating would have an affect of my period or pregnancy or whatever rather than just my water intake, maybe a what did you eat tab or something I don’t really know what I’m requesting for. Also automatic sleep tracker another request/suggestion from in app purchasable apps). Overall my opinion of the app is that it is great and very very useful.
It's beautiful and easy to personalise for what you are actually keeping track of. I enjoy the different insights but definitely when you are pregnant the most relevant one is the baby progress. It was a shame that when I had the first scan and corrected the gestational age from 10 to 8 weeks the insight didn't refresh so I got stock with "The size of an olive for 3 weeks". Hope that in this update they've added week by week baby progress for the entire pregnancy. (Other comments said they got nothing after week 20). I am worry about important medical issues being treated as discussions because thousands of women opinions does not necessarily is the right medical answer. Also, I wish you were explicit of which country the insights are from because timing for doctors appointments may vary and definitely options as terminating a pregnancy are not available in every country.
Absolutely amazing I’m a teenager so want to know when I’m due etc so I can plan my social life etc with when I’m on or not as I live by the sea and my friends want to swim 24/7 and I hate tampons. So far this app has been 100% accurate and I’ve had it for about 6 months and it gives me super great knowledge about what’s going on in my body and why sometimes I’m moody etc, with little quizzes it becomes really personalised to you and can give you advice even on boys ! I love that there is a password optional feature as some of my friends go on my phone and I don’t want them to know when I’m on or not always. I cannot recommend this app enough I honestly don’t know what this app doesn’t have with wanting to know what’s going on with you, also it says for people who want to get pregnant how fertile they are so could be really helpful for those who want to know. I ADORE THIS APPPPP
I really do love this app, it is very helpful.. but why can’t I but my real date of birth in. If this app thinks I’m to young to have my period it’s WRONG!! Because I know when my date of birth is and i know when I got my period and it’s telling me other wise. So please fix this if a child is the age they are, they are that age and they got their period at the age so sort this out because this app is very help full.. but if it’s telling my that I’m to young to have my period because I’m not i know when I got it and I know when my date of birth was!!!! P.S I am not trying to be rude I do love this app and reading reviews on it that you you have gave feed back on you’s sound lovely just please write back soon.....
I downloaded this app as soon as I started my first period. It works really well and the company that made this app seem to have thought of everything - except for age.
When I set up the app, it asked me for my age. Fair enough, I heard that when you start your period it tends to be light and as you grow up they tend to be a bit heavier (I’m not certain though, so don’t quote me on that one). So I put in my DOB... only, I can’t. I started at 11, and the app doesn’t expect you to have started before 12, which was the youngest age on the app. This has to be fixed as soon as possible. Nevertheless, this is a really great app and I absolutely adore it. Thanks for your work on this.
I’ve used this app since the stillbirth of my second son in 2016. I never knew when I was due on so I wanted to log my periods as I didn’t want good old Mother Nature to keep “surprising” me! The recent updates over the last two years are amazing - for example: you can now get reminders to encourage you to drink water, take your medication, to tell you when you’re due on and to log your start and finish of your period. You can also log all of your symptoms, weight and other personal details. The fact the app is also secure (pin or Touch ID) is great because you know nobody could ever see your personal details. It’s also great if you’re trying to get pregnant as there’s a pregnancy mode which can help you track when you’re ovulating, or even if you are pregnant there’s countdowns and information about pregnancy and babies. There’s also a great new update with so much information from periods to day to day life, quizzes and surveys for you to do. I’ve tried roughly 10 other period apps and I can honestly say this is the best by far. I’d never change to another one. Keep up the good work creators!
Really great app, helps you track your period with various different added extras, like; you can add mood, if you have had craving or cramps etc etc. It also helps you if you are struggling with just generally being a teenage girl, gives you advice on bras, if you have normal flow, what products are best for you. If you want you can log in personal details like weight, height and the amount of water you drink, this will mean that Flo will advise you to drink more or less. Also for added privacy you can have a passcode, which I think is really great, just incase my brother steals my phone! If anything could be improved, I would say to add a chat room, for people who are struggling to ask the community, so that they don’t feel alone. Overall, I think this is the best FREE app out there for period tracking.( you can also have ovulation tracking or pregnancy tracking, but I’m not planning to get pregnant, so I don’t use it)
Love this app. I used to just predict my period on my calendar but having an app do it for me allows me not to worry about working it all out. It also has a part for birth control pills (or any pills) and I rely on it to remind me to take them. When I log things like back pain it not only tells me why I’m likely to get back pain, how to help, but also monitors when in my cycle I get back pain. I recommend it to everyone. It’s great! One thing I have just picked up on is the fact that the oral contraceptives part doesn’t incorporate the fact that on a Progesterone pill (not combined) you take it during your period and the app does not continue to remind you when on your
This is probably one of the simplest period tracking apps I’ve used. The best part is that you can add your PMS symptoms, note what kind of discharge you’re experiencing, how much water you’ve drunk and so on. It all forms a later picture of what your period is actually like and eventually you’ll be able to identify when you may be experiencing PMS for example. I know I struggle to differentiate between a crap day and being overtired and my PMS symptoms sometimes. I love this app so much!
Although, I wish there was an option to transfer data to the app on another person’s phone so my boyfriend can see when I’m ovulating etc. That would be a really neat idea!
Love the lay out colours etc. and that you can adapt what info you want recorded and that it’s lets me know when I’m ovulating so I’m extra careful on that day but also there’s no unneeded info that doesn’t appeal to me like a few other apps. The notes part helps with recording any illnesses and the multiple reminders are useful if you start a new medication on top your normal daily ones. Glad you can remove the options of contraception which is helpful if like me you’re not on any but also not wanting to get pregnant. Like that it coincides with other apps like the health and life cycle app by recording sleep weight temperature and water intake just wish I could figure out if able to how to get it log my sleep automatically from the sleep app cos at the moment I have to log it manually once I wake up but that’s not an inconvenience really. Fav one so far and I’ve downloaded and tried to use loads before. It has Touch ID which is a nicer way of locking the app.
I’ve used a couple of different apps over the years but started using Flo when I got the Apple Watch. It has been very useful and so easy to use. The information given when logging symptoms has given me answers I didn’t know I needed! I hadn’t realised the few times I have trouble sleeping were happening at the same part of my cycle until this app. And it also explained why (what your hormones are doing etc). The only feature I would like is a tampon minder that works with the watch. TSS means remembering to change frequently is really important, even life threatening. Not sure how hard this would be to add, but it’s just a thought. Thanks for an extremely helpful app.
I’m only 13 and I’ve only had roughy 6 periods, at first I downloaded clue but I didn’t like it so I explored my other options and I stumbled upon Flo. The whole design of the app is very dainty and pretty and is well disguised. This is extremely accurate and it can predict if my period is on a different date than normal. For example, I started out being around roughly the 25th and it predicted it would shift to the 17th and it did, it later predicted that it would shift to the 8th and it did. At the start you fill in your age and every time you upload data it analyses it and gives you insights on your changing body and helps you stay well informed on not just your period but the whole topic of puberty and sti’s. it is well informed not only on physical but mental health as well. Would highly recommend to anyone ❤️
It's great, love it and very accurate. I wish it had a feature where you could tell it any disabilities that might effect your period. I had a broken foot/feet for 2 months each and that affected my cycle. Also, it would be great to add in more insights that relate to you and your well being. One way to do this could be a search bar to search through insights to find useful info on things that you want to learn about. But other than that it is a useful app to own, especially if you forget when you're due and don't have pads or tampons with you all the time. Yeah excellent.
I’ve been a user of a particular period tracking app for a while now and decided to have a change after that one wasn’t really working for me how I wanted it to. I came across Flo and I wish I had been using it way before now! I love how the app responds to your symptoms and changes your predictions according to what you are experiencing at certain points in your cycle (something that was clearly missing from the other app). I haven’t been using the app for long, so I can only assume that it will get better with time/more to work from. What is great about Flo is that it makes you want to use it on a day to day basis to keep the app as accurate as possible. The only suggestion I have to improve it would to have “custom settings” where you could add your own symptoms. I know that there is currently a notes screen but it is hard to keep a track on specific individual symptoms should you record them in this way (for example leg pain). This wouldn’t have to necessarily have an impact on cycle predictions, it would just be nice to keep a track on certain symptoms that aren’t currently listed. Anyways, this app is fab and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
