Apps to track perimenopause symptoms?

Posted , 5 users are following.

I’m tracking symptoms and changes on paper, but it would be easier to use an app. Is anyone using an app that you’ve found useful?

 (If only nothing needed to be tracked, but I feel like this is a moving target and I’m having a heck of a time.)

     I didn’t use an app, but I did put notes into my phone so I could check in track my symptoms each week. It really did help me to see the symptoms disappear after month for the most part… Not the new ones wouldn’t pop up of course, things that were just as annoying but it help me realize it was only hormonal and I shouldn’t panic. I bet there is an app that could help with that if you do find a good one preferably free, feel free to share with us. Take care and have a great day.

    What a great idea! I journal mine daily...it's been helpful when I get overwhelmed...look back and see...yep, I have gotten to the other side on that one and I can do it again!

      Sorry for the weird wording, I was using talk to text and it makes it seem like I don’t have a grasp on the English language sometimes lol..Truth be told, I initially used the notes in my phone as lists of symptoms to report to my doctor at my various appointments when I first started having symptoms and thought I was dying! I’d make an appointment, be sure to note all my symptoms and then by the time I got to the appt a few weeks later, they’d be gone! So I finally learned to still write them down but not make an appointment for a bit and sure enough..symptoms subsided! So try not to panic but keep  note of  symptoms,  and if any stick around for a few months bring it up, but it’s honestly never happened! It’s like the circus train of symptoms, all on rotation..for example, now I feel physically ok, but emotionally want to cry every day! And the few weeks before this, I had achy joints, back pain, then before that, stomach upset, cramps in legs, headaches..never ends! Please reach out if necessary and know we are here to listen!! Take care!!😊

      You take care too, Amy. It hasn’t been fun for me so far. For a few months now I’ve had to sit on a heating pad because of lower back/SI pain. It gets significantly worse when my cycle comes - feels very hormonal. I’m seeing my doctor next week and hope I can get a scan...might be fibroids

    Hi Owlgirl, I've never heard of a menopause app and I wouldnt think it would work too well as each woman is so radically different both in what her normal levels are and in what symptoms she gets in peri or full meno and how severe they are. I would be shocked if anyone has created an app for this that actually works! XXX

      That’s the one! :-) I know that women have been going through this forever, but really, why us?! What I would give for some smooth sailing for the rest of my life. It’s hard not to get health anxiety when some of these symptoms are debilitating. I hope we all get through this sooner than later.
