Great for getting those positives, doesn’t handle losses well
I started using the Ovia Fertility app initially to track my periods and get a sense of my cycle before my husband and I were ready to TTC (I had a copper IUD so I wanted to be able to track the changes once it was removed). As a period tracker and as a fertility tracker once we were TTC it was super useful for the most part. I agree with other reviewers that I would some way (other than me writing it in as note) to mark when I’m late for an expected period instead of the app just resetting the cycle count. Overall I’m happy with the app when I’m TTC and I loved the sister pregnancy app. Unfortunately, I’ve had two miscarriages and neither app does a good job in handling those. With my first one, I ended up having to mark it as a “period” to track the bleeding and stop the app from telling me to take a pregnancy test. After we got the second positive test, I found out the pregnancy app hadn’t updated itself from the first loss. It was an emotional sucker punch to log in and be told that I was only a couple of weeks away from my original due date. With this second loss, and again despite informing the apps of the miscarriage, nothing has changed in my fertility app. I don’t want to mark it as a period but the app now has me on some crazy cycle day. I don’t want to reset everything and lose all the data but it needs to have a system in place to track these without creating huge outlier cycles...
I love this app
Updated review: The developer reached out and their suggestion fixed my issue. I appreciate it when there is support for bugs like the one I was having, and the team makes an effort to help their users. I’m glad to know that if I get a new phone or have to uninstall the app to fix a problem in the future that my data is saved on their servers...not knowing that was the only reason I hadn’t tried uninstalling/reinstalling already (nobody wants to lose all their data). This app really is wonderful, and I’m glad I can use it again! Old review (crashing issue): I loved this app...when it worked. It now crashes nearly every time I attempt to open it. It’s really frustrating to have everything I’ve logged trapped in an app I can no longer use. I would happily give it 5 stars if I could open it consistently because I felt like it was one of the most comprehensive fertility apps I’ve used, and I’ve tried several over the years. Please fix this issue, so I can at least access my data. I’d love to use this app again if it starts working!
App collects your data
App didn't help me track my fertility. It worked better at allowing me a place to chart my cycle which is irregular. If you’re irregular like me this app will likely not help you with fertility tracking & if you fail to chart a period the app will automatically add it to your calendar so i had to go back and delete those that were inaccurately added by the app. If this were the only problem i would have rated app more stars but it loses major points for using questionable tactics to collect personal information which seems really irrelevant to fertility tracking. I would receive emails from the app asking questions what birth order is your mother and after you answer it would say your mothers birth order doesnt affect your fertility! Useless questions, only makes sense to be used to collect personal information. The other problem with the apps questions are that they ask health related questions like have you noticed excess facial/body hair and after answering yes it told me i should ask my Doctor about PCOS. This is awful because for one you should never tell someone they have a medical condition based on one similar symptom. Thats like telling an old person oh you have HIV because you’re always sick! This is awful because it creates unnecessary worry and stress. Shame on you Ovia. Long story short, I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS APP. Quit collecting personal information and giving out poor advice!
CM tracking is limited
I check my cm and find the selection on this app most limiting. It’s not just watery or just egg whites or just glue or just dry. Sometimes it’s a creamy and slippery mix which indicates to me that’s it’s getting ready..I want there to be a creamy option and the option to mix the options in any combination.. I track my cm on a different app, Kindara is best at tracking cm, it’s perfect for tracking it. I don’t temp because I’m unpredictable in the mornings so cm works best for me. I am pretty sure your supposed to take your temp in the morning but that doesn’t work when i’m up and running before I realized I was awake yet or I’m tossing and turning for an hour before waking or I come straight out of coma... I love this app because it has everything you could possibly be feeling and it comments on your tracking, if I say something like, “I have a head ache” the app might say something along the lines of “headaches may be an indicator that your dehydrated or hungry” - which totally helps me toss out some things I’m taking as being a pregnancy symptom. It calms me...
Great! If it opens…
After using a simple period tracker for years I wanted to see better patterns and do more than just mark my cycle. I like the medical information and the community, the moods, and all the stuff you can track. The newest update offers nice customization for the information screen. I do wish that some of the “comments” after you update varied a bit more, and didn’t always revolve around being pregnant. Not every little mood or ailment means you’re pregnant, sometimes it’s just the day. ** It would be nice to have multiple moods a day —cause we are women after all! Also if I add a remark to an update, I’d like to see it instead of it just highlighting the speech bubble. My major issue is when I go to open the app it doesn’t stay “open”. It goes to the background and doesn’t actually load. I’ve tapped the icon multiple times and it keeps disappearing. I tried opening it through different avenues and it does the same thing. I’ve removed it and redownloaded it and it does the same thing. I don’t want to stop using the app but when it doesn’t open I can’t update my info for the day.
I’m not one to rate an app but I really love this one! I downloaded the app in preparation of getting pregnant, but it offers so much more than that. Whether you’re tracking periods, moods, food, ovulation etc. It’s like a diary for ALL things related to your body and esp your lady parts. It’s important information to have, but many of us rarely keep track; because well, there’s life and who has time to keep up with when your last bowel movement was? Ovia makes it super simple. It is so easy to navigate and allows you to easily see the information you’ve input at a glance. You can even customize it by changing colors and backgrounds. I mean they thought of everything. I love the articles and recipes they share. The app promotes healthy lifestyle and provides articles related to those burning questions you have during different stages of your life. I tried a few other apps and this one if by far the best. Thanks Ovia. You had to have been created by a woman!
Stop Shame Around Menstruation
I’m just get started with the app, and from a usability perspective so far it seems fine. I predominately track basal body temperature and cervical fluid daily as part of the Fertility Awareness Method, so I’d prefer if those fields were closer to the top to minimize scrolling. The main reason for the mediocre score is the apps use of negative language around menstruation. In one section the app literally says “Nobody likes being on their period...” That’s no true! Some of us have had to work long and hard to get periods and are grateful when it comes, as it’s a sign of a happy health body. Also, the app recommends hormonal birth control to treat irregular periods. Eek! Hormonal birth control just masks the underlying causes of an irregular period. I direct app content developers to Lara Briden’s The Period Repair manual. More and more evidence is showing the detrimental effects of ongoing use of hormonal birth control for some women, especially those with conditions like PCOS. I like what the app is working towards, but it still represents some pretty unhealthy misconceptions around menstruation and women’s health. Please review and update your content. I’d love to give you 5 stars.
Make Room for Human Error!
My husband and I started trying to get pregnant a year ago. This app is great for tracking your periods and intercourses, especially if you are aware of your body. I began noticing trends during certain phases that stopped when my menses began (painful breasts and nipples! Ouch!). That was how I realized that my September cycle was off, and despite my period being only a week before, I knew I had ovulated. I hit the little button to change the day of ovulation and that also helped me realize that I’d been marking breast pain for a couple weeks and my period hadn’t come for a whole month. I took a pregnancy test, and lo and behold, I’m pregnant! This app is “perfect”, which can make it difficult and/or frustrating when you are experiencing atypical cycles or not ovulating at all, but it means you have data to give your doctor and hopefully you can find a way to get back on track.
I have used Ovia for a bit over and month. My husband and I just started TTC. This app has helped me keep things straight. I have always had irregular periods and thus have been on birth control pills for regularity since I was 16. For the last 1 1/2 years I’ve had an IUD. Not living on birth control is very new for me. This app has helped me keep up with what day of the cycle I’m on. I truly believe that without this app right now I’d be going crazy. With that said the only thing I would change about this app is the basal metabolic temperature. I wish it had a point in it. My body temperature is normally a 97.6 so I have to round up. Today I actually deviated from that to 98.4. I want the app to be able to tell me if that is a significant enough change for any indications but I felt that I had to log it to the nearest whole number so I logged 98 as I normally do. Otherwise, I have been very impressed with this app and will continue to refer others to it as well.
None better than Ovia!
I found Ovia Pregnancy during my pregnancy and became addicted immediately. My hubby and I always looked forward to the weekly handprint and the object of the week in comparison to baby’s size. It made understanding pregnancy for a first time mom, like myself, so much more enjoyable let alone informative. My baby is now 8 months old and I currently use the Ovia Parenting app which also exceeds my expectations! It’s so fun to read the articles and see where my baby is at in terms of progress compared to other babies her age. The Ovia Chat is FANTASTIC ON BOTH APPS! It is great to have support and advice from other moms going through the same thing that I am. I also just downloaded the Ovia Fertility App a couple weeks ago as we are going to start TTC our second bundle of joy 😍😊 I would give all 3 of these apps a 6/5 ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Yes..6!! Thank you 🙏🏻 to the developers of Ovia, you guys get it!
It's a great app...Until you miscarry
I loved this app when my husband and I first started TTC. But after three miscarriages it's not really working the way I wish it would. There is no option to mark a miscarriage besides reporting the loss and resetting the app. Which is fine unless you plan to keep tracking. I took a couple months off after my first (mostly bc it took 7 weeks to get my period), but it's always a pain to start tracking again in the app after a loss. This past time I didn't track my loss as a "period" and now I'm on a crazy cycle day number. I know it probably can't accurately "predict" after miscarriage, but I really miss the little insights and I wish it would just mark the first day of your miscarriage as cycle day 1 or something. Maybe I'm being extra picky and/or sensitive, but with the staggering statistic of 1/4 couples experiencing loss I think it's something to be noted. OVERALL I love the app interface - it's easy to track, use, update...Just wish losses were handled differently.
Conceived in 2 months at age 39 with Ovia!
This app is AMAZING. I downloaded the app in December and was pregnant by February, and just gave birth to a beautiful, healthy baby boy! I’m 39 and I was concerned about how challenging it would be to get pregnant at this age. I downloaded Ovia, and tracking my periods and ovulation was so easy and almost fool proof that the app knew I was pregnant before I did! Who knew it would only take two months to conceive?! I love the fact that the fertility app immediately transfers all of your data over to the pregnancy app, and I love that the pregnancy app immediately transfers you to the parenting app once your baby arrives. It’s incredible to have such an amazing resource every step of the way, (the pregnancy app gave me spot on updates each and every day) and it made doctors visits so much easier having all of my info in one place. I can’t believe this app is free!!!!
Two suggestions... but absolutely love!
Love this app. Think it’s excellent! Two things: 1. Under the “Kiss and tell” category, I wish there were three hearts, the two that are there (or you could get rid of the not today), and one heart that symbolizes sex with a condom or protection. My husband and I are avoiding pregnancy right now, but we mutually hate using condoms, so we only use them during the fertile zone. I’d love to be able to look at my fertility chart and see the red hearts where we had sex without protection, and also see another color heart where we did not use protection. This would help in tracking and avoiding unplanned pregnancy. It would great if when you press the red heart (the one that indicates sex) if a subcategory came up to ask if you pulled out or not. This app is about tracking and for me, the details are important. I put that in my notes in the bottom, but that’s too hard to see from the calendar. 2. I’m still exclusively pumping, and ovulation and menstruation greatly affect my milk production. I know exclusively pumping moms are a minority but I’d love to see tracking for pumping. Just a category labeled Pumping with subcategories like “letdown time” and “milk produced in ounces”. If the milk production in ounces had a line on the fertility chart I could see how ovulation and menstruation really affect my output. Anyway, fantastic app! I love it, even without my suggestions.
The BEST ovulation tracking/fertility app!!!
I’ve tried maybe 5 different fertility/ovulation tracking apps and for awhile compared them to see how they differ as far as being accurate. This app has just about been dead on for when I should be in my “fertile days” as well as when I should be on my period. I like that it gives a scale for how fertile I am vs just hilighting the box and leaving me speculating. It’s very informative. Hands down best app for if you’re trying to get pregnant or just keep track of your cycle. I deleted all other similar apps & only use this one. Another thing I like is the entire interface. It doesn’t look like a children’s game with the cheesy layout and icons. It has so many options for things like what’s your mood, medications you may be on, etc.. Recommend to any gals looking for a cycle/ovulation tracker 😊😊
Love the Ovia suite of apps!
I have used all three of the Ovia apps for my cycle tracking, pregnancy, and postpartum and newborn care, and they are just awesome. If there is one thing I would change, it would be to add a sharing feature to both the Fertility and Pregnancy apps like the one available in the Parenting app. As of right now, my husband has to track my cycle separately or else it falls on me to communicate information to him, which doesn’t always happen in a timely fashion. If we could share the info through the application, they would all be 5-star applications. I love all the articles and helpful information provided when I need it, sometimes before I know I need to know it! I also love how they all three feed information to each other when they’re installed in your phone. It would take a lot for me to decide to use a different application for any of these purposes. Thank you, Ovia!
