Why should I follow my period?

Keeping track of your period and menstrual cycle is a great way to learn about your body. It helps you know when your period usually comes, so your flow doesn't catch you by surprise. If you have a regular period, you can also see predicted fertility windows to know when your body is more susceptible to pregnancy (if you're not on a method). Tracking daily events or changes in your body and mood can also help you understand what affects your menstrual cycle, and how your menstrual cycle affects your body.

Can I use Spot On if I don't get a period?

Yes! We know that lots of people use birth control to skip their periods or get them very infrequently, so Spot On helps you understand how your menstrual cycle and birth control affect your body beyond “that time of the month.”

The app allows you to track your actions, moods, and body symptoms on a day-to-day basis, which can help you track patterns over time. Spot On also provides resources related to birth control and sexual health, and provides reminders to stay on schedule with your birth control method. 

What kind of birth control does Spot On support?

Spot On offers tracking and guidance for any birth control method that may affect your menstrual cycle. These methods include: The Pill The IUD The Implant The Patch The Shot The Ring

How can Spot On help me with my birth control?

If you’re on a type of birth control that affects your menstrual cycle, Spot On can help you: Understand the effect(s) your birth control has on your cycle; Know what to do if you have a birth control mishap (e.g., miss a pill, put on a patch late); Remind you to take a pill, change a patch, get a shot, change a ring — you name it; Use your birth control method most effectively; Recognize what normal birth control side effects are; Learn more about other available birth control methods; And so much more.

Can I use Spot On to help me get pregnant?

Spot On does not currently offer specific features to help people get pregnant; however, if you are trying to get pregnant and opt in to receive advice about pregnancy within the app, you can use your fertility prediction days to give you a good idea of when to try.

Can Spot On track my fertility?

If you have a regular period, Spot On can now predict when you’re most likely to be fertile. If you’re using a birth control method that prevents ovulation (like the pill, patch, ring, or shot), but get off track with that method, the app will give you a heads up when you could be fertile until you’re back on schedule. Fertility tracking can always be turned off. Fertility features in Spot On are not designed to support Fertility Awareness Methods, and should not be relied on to prevent pregnancy as ovulation can change from month to month.

Can Spot On diagnose medical conditions?

Spot On doesn’t diagnose medical conditions, but it can be a great complement to having conversations with your healthcare provider. You can always connect to a Planned Parenthood health center through the app, and even book an appointment online. For more information on medical conditions related to your period, birth control or cycle, or to book an appointment at your local Planned Parenthood, visit the Planned Parenthood website.

Can I import my data from another period tracking app?

If you are using an iPhone, you can import period and spotting data from another period tracking app using HealthKit. If you are using an Android device, you will unfortunately not be able to import previous cycle data (yet!); however you can add in previous cycles using the Calendar.

Is my data safe in Spot On?

Yes! The data in Spot On is only stored locally on your phone, so you’re the only one who ever has access to it. Because of this, we do recommend exporting your data on a regular basis to avoid accidental data loss, as we cannot recover data for users.
