| Sep 12, 2019 | Fertility Law |

Want to know when your next period is coming? Trying to conceive using BBT’s? Or just want to learn what’s normal for your body for your next visit to the doctor? Knowing all of this is useful when you are trying to conceive or are living with conditions like polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and endometriosis.

“Apple Watch has become an indispensable part of our customers’ everyday lives, from helping users stay connected to the people and information they care about, to inspiring them to live a better and more active day,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer. “watchOS 6 extends our commitment to helping users better manage their health and fitness with powerful and personal new tools.”

Just announced at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference is Apple’s new Cycle Tracking app that will be available with the WatchOS 6 update! If you have ever used a fertility tracker app, then Apple’s Cycle Tracking app will be just as familiar to you as it is easy to use. The app gives women the ability to log important information related to their menstrual cycles and see predicted timing for their next period and fertile window using the convenience of Apple Watch.1

The daily log function enables the quick addition of information related to the menstrual cycle, including current period, flow, symptoms, results from ovulation prediction kits and other elements of fertility tracking. The new Cycle Tracking feature is also available in the Health app on iPhone with iOS 13.

All data is encrypted on-device and if iCloud back up is selected by the user, data is encrypted in iCloud. The information from Apple Watch health features, including the new Cycle Tracking app, will be visible within the redesigned Health app on iOS 13 for your privacy.
