Menstrual flow/period tracking from Apple Health

Apple Health can import this data from certain other period trackers that sync with it. There’s other related data available in Apple Health, such as basal body temperature, but this is a specific suggestion for tracking light/medium/heavy menstrual flow via Apple Health. Please vote for this if it would be useful to you.

    I would be especially interested in this if it includes spotting as well as actual flow levels. Most of the reason I use Clue (which I send to to Apple Health) is to track between-period spotting and cramps (I’m on an extended-cycle BC pill). I’m definitely interested in seeing the correlations for that. It doesn’t seem like Apple Health has a field for cramps, but I’d appreciate that being added as an available attribute in Exist so I could work with it in the API.

    I use Period Tracker, and it captures data on symptoms or discomforts, and level of flow.

    This data is absolutely key for females. I have used Ovia and Clue and see both are on your not possible list. I don’t mind starting to track in apple health since you already have some data connections there. It is essential to track the cycle against calories, mood, and other custom tracking like migraines. This would be especially helpful for women with hormonal issues concerning their thyroid or PCOS.

    I would be curious if you could troll across custom tags - are people already creating tags for this? That might be useful prioritization data to vote this up in the backlog - not everyone would take time to vote (or even notice you can) - but people that want it would create tags. Suggest you troll custom tags for anything such as “period” “bleeding” “cycle” etc. and see what % of your female users are already manually trying to track and correlate this (vs. just relying on votes alone)

    is there a way to see the date when things change status in changemap? so the suggestion was started 08 dec 2016; it’s in planned as of 25 mar 2018; any way for us to see the date when it made it’s way from suggestion to consideration to planned ....and then a predicted target date for in progress and a predicted target date for completed, depending on your effort tracking/burndown rates and other priorities in the queue?

    Not all tasks will go through each stage, so it’s possible this one went straight from “Suggestions” to “Planned”. We don’t have predicted target dates, but a good way to tell when a task is getting closer is when it moves to “In progress”. If you’ve voted for a task, you’ll get an update when that happens.

    ++ for this - tracking menstrual flow, fertile window/ovulation, pms, etc. can give you some incredible insights about mood, energy levels, and other conditions. Wish Clue had an open API :/

    I use clue and have it linked with Apple Health, but currently Exist won’t access that data. I’ve been tracking it with Clue for nearly a year, now! Would be great to have that data be used towards this service.
