The Best Ad-Free Period Tracker

Are period apps just not living up to your standards? Trust me; I get it. It can be so annoying when you want a clear picture of what’s going on with your cycle and your tracking app just isn’t cutting it. Most apps do the bare minimum and only ask you to track when you’ve started your period. This is supposed to help you know when your period is likely to start each month and help monitor ovulation.

But most apps fall short when it comes to doing much more than that (unless you want to spend an extra $40 to even $80 a month for extra features). Orchyd takes a personal approach to your menstrual care and has partnered with a team of OB/GYNs to help design an app that truly considers your entire cycle.

The Orchyd app includes features to track your PMS symptoms and any irregularities. It also tracks your mood, flow, and even your fertility, with predictive analytics to make your cycle easier and better to experience. The best part, though, is that it is completely ad-free, so you’re never bombarded with annoying product placements or ads you have to wade through to get the help you need. You can spend as much time as you want on the app, but if you’re trying to check or track your cycle briefly, you shouldn’t have to go through an ad to do so.

Orchyd’s priority is to give you what you need while providing OB/GYN-approved features and staying entirely HIPAA compliant. The most important thing to me, though, is how Orchyd never sells your data. Period tracking apps, in general, hold very personal and sensitive information. I use mine to track everything from my mood to sexual activity. With Orchyd, I don’t have to think twice about my data being sold–I know it’s secure.
