Ovia Fertility

Cycle tracker for fertility

The app uses proprietary algorithms based on fertility research to predict your ovulation and fertile windows.

  • Privacy

    The app shares your data with advertisers and shares your anonymized data with health researchers.

  • Accessibility

    The app is really only for people who are trying to conceive.

  • Efficacy

    There are claims that Ovia is accurate in its predictions, but its effectiveness hasn't been proven in any peer-reviewed journals.

Our favorite thing about Ovia Fertility is that it's clearly for people who want to become pregnant. It also caters to folks with irregular periods by allowing you to enter preexisting conditions into the app to customize your predictions.

Pros

  • You can add health conditions and stipulations to personalize your app experience (i.e. breastfeeding, diagnosed infertility, endometriosis, a history of miscarriages, hormone therapy, IUI, IVF, male infertility, PCOS, past cancer treatment and/or uterine fibroids)

  • The app has built-in "TTC tips"

  • The app has built-in educational health articles

  • Ovia's algorithm identifies your "fertility score" every day, which indicates the likelihood of unprotected sex leading to conception that day

  • The app lets you track a ton of data, including sexual activity, mood, pain, sleep, cervical fluid, cervical position, ovulation tests, basal body temperature, weight, nutrition, exercise and medications taken

  • You can change the theme and color of the app's design

  • To really track your fertility, you must track your Basal Body Temperature and cervical fluid, both of which Ovia promotes tracking

Cons

  • You can't use the app without sharing your name and email

  • This app isn't inclusive for people who have tracking goals other than trying to conceive

  • The app is a little clunky but mostly intuitive to use
