Leaving pregnancy up to chance is no longer necessary with apps that help to track hormone levels more precisely than ever. These five smart fertility tracking apps can help women bring a bit more control to their lives, giving them insight into their own body.



Ovia actually makes a trio of apps all designed to fit into the cycle of pre-pregnancy to parenting. For those looking to start tracking their fertility, the free Ovia Fertility app works with both iOS and Android devices, and not only provides details when fertility may be its highest, but also health tips and facts as well.

Details are shown in a calendar format, and people can add in details about their day — even workouts as well.



The Clue app also shows details in a monthly calendar setting, with tracking of someone's cycle, sleeping hours, and other heath details. The app works on iOS and Android devices, and on their web site, there are articles people can read as well on subjects including birth control, fertility and gender.

The app also includes a pregnancy tracker, where people can log their pregnancy and postpartum symptoms as well.
