Why All Women Should Track Their Menstrual Cycle, Greece, New York

The modern woman has enough to worry about without having to track her menstrual cycle, regardless of what stage of life she’s in. However, thanks to various smartphone and tablet apps, it’s easy to stay on top of your periods. If you don’t already track your cycle, here are just a few major reasons why gynecologists recommend doing so. 

3 Reasons to Track Menstruation 

1. To Ensure Accurate Medical Records 

Your menstrual cycle can reveal a lot about your reproductive health. That is why gynecologists ask about your cycle at every appointment. Tracking your periods will ensure you answer these questions accurately so your medical records are as comprehensive as possible. 

2. To Predict Fertility

3. To Identify Any Potential Issues 

Dozens of variables can affect menstruation, so if your period comes early or late once in a while, it’s not necessarily a cause for concern. If it’s often irregular or unpredictable, however, it could be indicative of an underlying health issue. Naturally, the only way to determine if your cycle is irregular is by determining abnormal patterns.
