[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Vitzu today is pleased to announce Lady's Days 1.0.3 for iOS, an update to their Health & Fitness app that displays a woman's menstrual cycle on an easy to read graph or calendar. Whether seeking to become pregnant, avoid pregnancy, or simply monitor the health of their reproductive system, the app provides the user with 100% accuracy in predicting ovulation by combining two methods: basal body temperature readings and calendar days between periods. The app can also send push notification reminders immediately before the start of each cycle. Lady's Days is simple to use once the woman's personal information has been entered into the Settings: Length of Menstrual Cycle (21-35 days), and Length of Menstrual Period (2-7 days).
The app operates in portrait mode and opens to display a five-week monthly calendar. The user may go backward or forward and select any day. Touching the "+" button in the upper right opens the data entry page for that day. There is a Yes/No button to answer the question, "First day of cycle?" The Basal Temperature button opens the Apple picker (odometer) display, and the user may dial in any temperature from 95.0 to 103.9 degrees Fahrenheit. If no temperature is entered the reading defaults to 97.9 degrees. Last, there is an empty text field for notes.
Based on the data entered, the calendar employs various colors to display and predict Expected Menstruation, Menstruation, Expected Ovulation Day, and Fertile Time. Basal body temperature rises right after ovulation and stays higher by about 0.4 - 0.8 degrees Fahrenheit until a few days before the next period. The point graph offers a visual representation of the small fluctuations of temperature associated with the regular menstrual cycle. The bar graph compares the duration of monthly cycles.
Lady's Days includes complete information on reproductive health and fertility. In the section devoted to Monitoring Temperature, it states, "Ovulation is the most fertile time during your menstrual cycle. Typically, ovulation takes place about 14 days after the beginning of a woman's menstrual cycle. 'Peak fertility' is considered to be the day before and the day of ovulation. As the egg survives about 24 hours, conception must take place within this narrow window of opportunity. Your fertile period, more generally, begins about five days preceding ovulation and lasts until two days after ovulation."
