Kindara for iPhone
Hi fertility lovers! I wanted to let you all know that we released Kindara version 1.4 yesterday, and it is sweet!! We added some great new features, here’s how they work.
1. Peak Day: This feature allows you to mark a day as your Peak Day. Peak Day is the last day of fertile cervical fluid, before it goes back to dry or sticky after ovulation. This is important to note if you are charting your fertility, as your Peak Day is your day of highest fertility. So if you’re trying to conceive, this is a great day to have had intercourse (I say “have had” because you can only determine your peak day retroactively, after your cervical fluid becomes less fertile). And if you are charting to avoid pregnancy, the Peak Day feature is helpful because it starts a count of four after your Peak Day, so you can apply the Peak +4 rule of the Fertility Awareness Method.
To select a day as your Peak Day, simply tap the radio button next to Peak Day, under the Cervical Fluid section of the Data Screen. Note: the Peak Day can only be recognized the day after the fact. As it’s when you experience dry or sticky cervical fluid after you’ve had watery, or eggwhite cervical fluid that lets you know ovulation has occurred.
2. Temperature Shift: This feature allows to you select your temperature shift day. Temperature Shift is when your temperature goes from your pre-ovulatory temperature range to your higher, post-ovulatory temperature range. To set a day as your temperature shift day, tap the radio button under the Temperature section in the Data Screen. By selecting a day as your temperature shift day you will start a count of three, to apply the Temperature Shift +3 rule of the Fertility Awareness Method. The great thing about this feature is that it will keep counting past the count of 3, all the way till the end of your luteal phase, so you can see how long your post-ovulatory phase is. Once you know how long your luteal (post-ovulaory) phases are, this can be great for predicting when your period will arrive.
3. Day selection: We are especially excited about Day Selection, as it makes looking at your data on the chart that much easier. Tap a day on the chart to highlight it in blue. If you tap and hold the day, you will get a pop-up with all the data you entered for that day. You can also press “edit” from inside the pop-up to edit your data for that day.
These are super cool features and will help you do more with Kindara. Try them out and let me know what you think. We love our users, and your great feedback. :)
Hello! What is the difference between purchasing a normal over the counter digital thermometer verses a basal body temp thermometer? I read my temps in Celsius (I'm Canadian, eh..lol) and have a typical over the counter one that reads one point to the right, for example 37.5. Is this okay to use? Thanks -Anonymous 35 Canada Hey there! In general, basal body temperature (BBT) thermometers ...Continue reading
I'm starting to chart my CF but I am still confused about what each kind of cervical fluid should look like and feel like. I'm especially confused between sticky and egg white consistency. Thanks! -Oli 28 Mexico Hi Oli, Distinguishing between types of cervical fluid can be difficult and it can take a couple of cycles to identify your pattern. Every woman is different, so it makes sense that...Continue reading
Hello, My husband and I have been trying for a baby for about a year and charting with kindara for about 4 cycles to no avail. (I'm charting my fifth cycle now). I was previously diagnosed with PCOS, but I have had regular 30-33 day cycles for the past 6 months or so. While menstruating and consistent temperature shifts lead me to believe that I am ovulating, I am not sure whether I am. Are there...Continue reading
