As outlined in this blog post, tracking your symptoms over time can even save your life, if it alerts you to signs of a serious health issue...
However, for most people, it simply provides a way to get to know 'what is normal', and to notice any patterns in symptom occurrence. [A completed chart can also help inform your doctor's diagnosis, and treatment options.]

How does this symptom tracker compare to others?
There are various symptom tracking charts and smartphone apps available, but we think that our tracker is the best because it is free and allows users to easily compare cycles; to spot any patterns that may emerge. It also busts some common menstrual myths and reminds users to figure out what 'external' triggers might also be affecting their health and wellbeing.
If you prefer to use another method, such as a smartphone app, please do- the most important thing is to track your health and well-being, we don't really mind how you do it!
