Fertility Apps- What are the best ones?

We have been doing some research this week on what the best fertility apps are that are out there amongst the many in the app stores.

We are interested in hearing what all of you like in fertility apps, don’t like and what you would love to see in one?

What is the ideal app for a woman trying to conceive? Does it include ovulation, BBT and sexual activity tracking? Or is it enough to just track your ovulation cycle for you to know your best fertile days? Also, do you feel that there are more geared towards a specific phone- iPhone, Android, etc?

Send an email to info@rinovum.com our best fertility app information. Thanks for all of your help!

March is Endometriosis Awareness Month

Chances are if you do not suffer from Endometriosis, you have a relative, friend and/or co-worker that does. It is estimated that millions of women worldwide suffer from it.

What is Endometriosis?

  • Abnormal growth of endometrial cells outside of the uterus. The cells will attach themselves/implant to tissue outside of the uterus (ovaries, Fallopian tubes, etc.) and cause pelvic pain.
  • Primarily affects women in their reproductive years, but some cases have been as early as teenage years.

Symptoms:

  • Pelvic Pain
  • Infertility
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Irregular menstrual periods
  • Lower back pain during periods

Contact your doctor if you feel you experience symptoms similar to those above. Wear your yellow ribbon for Endometriosis awareness this month!
