The Spot On App’s #30NightChallenge Helps Users Take Control of Their Period and Birth Control Method
New York, NY — Planned Parenthood Federation of America and R/GA are excited to debut “Spot On Nightly,” a one-night-only talk show about taking control of your menstrual cycle and birth control method with our award-winning and recently-redesigned app, Spot On.
“Spot On Nightly” puts front and center what we don’t talk about enough: periods and birth control. The show is directed by Sadé Clacken Joseph (co-director of “Ponyboi”), hosted by actress and comedian Sasheer Zamata (formerly of “Saturday Night Live”), and features editor and non-binary advocate Tyler Ford, student activist and organizer Deja Foxx, beauty blogger and PCOS advocate Jasmine Airdelle, health care professional and endometriosis advocate April Christina, and creator and mental health advocate Melanie Santos. From cravings to hormones to self-care, the questions and content on the show reflect guests’ unique, real-life experiences with their cycles and how the #30NightChallenge helps them stay on top of their symptoms using Spot On.
The talk show’s segments walk viewers through some of the updated Spot On features, and explain how the app can be used to track your mood, diet, and behaviors to help you manage your life and common conditions like endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

Statement from Ambreen Molitor, Senior Director of the Digital Products Lab at Planned Parenthood Federation of America:
We are delighted to debut the freshly-redesigned Spot On app alongside ‘Spot On Nightly,’ our one-night-only talk show about taking control of your period and birth control. At Planned Parenthood, we know that every body and every period is unique, and we want to provide as many people as possible with resources that help them understand their bodies, stay healthy, and reach their life goals — whether that’s in a health center or on their phone.
“We listened to feedback from thousands of Spot On users to build a new and improved Spot On app that gives you even more personalized information about your unique cycle. The more you track with the Spot On app, the more you know what to expect with your period. We invite anyone who wants to better understand their cycle to participate in Spot On’s #30NightChallenge.
The redesigned Spot On app gives users even more personalized information about their unique cycle. The app was updated and refreshed to make tracking periods and birth control more seamless than before, based on input from users. It now features over 500 ways to track your birth control and provides trusted tips on what to do if you forget to take it, personalized reminders, and educational content around periods, cycles, and birth control.
As always, Spot On is completely free and available for both Apple and Android users — and it doesn’t make any assumptions about your gender, sexual orientation, or reproductive goals. Planned Parenthood continues to make patient privacy and safety a top priority with Spot On, allowing users to choose whether or not they want to create an account or remain anonymous and have their data be stored on their device.
Spot On is one of the innovative ways Planned Parenthood is providing accurate, personalized sexual and reproductive health information to as many people as possible, so they can understand their bodies, stay healthy, and reach their life goals.
Planned Parenthood is leading the way in giving you the tools you need to take charge of your health, and we’re committed to reaching people wherever they are, including on their phones, with the information they need to stay healthy. We’re here when you need us — no matter what.
