Is there an app to track multi menstrual cycles?

DD2 started hers last weekend I was thinking how it would be useful to track both their cycles but the app I used to use only allowed you to track one cycle

I use that 'my calendar' app and in the settings there's an option to add another user.
I'm not sure why it'd be useful though. Can't your teen track her own cycles?

I’d die if my mum took an interest in my cycle. If I was a teenager, I’d die twice over.

Erm why do you need to track them?

Just keep the bathroom cabinet stocked and advise your teen to make a note herself so she knows roughly when she’s due.

The Clue app would allow them to track their cycles themselves and then they could share them with you if they chose to do so.

I second the Clue app it's great and you can allow other people to see your cycles.

I wouldn’t ‘die’ if my Mum knew my cycle. I think it’s nice and when my Mum tracked mine (back on the kitchen calendar, cringe) she knew when to buy me ice cream and offer a hug and when to leave me be. You sound like a lovely, thoughtful Mum!

My mum tracked mine, just by putting my initials in her family calendar, and for my sister too. Let her know when to top up supplies of sanitary items and chocolate. I still keep track now, GP was impressed when I could show her 6 years of cycles. We all have PCOS so it's a good habit to have and I will do the same for my daughters. No need to make a song and dance about it.

Thirding Clue. My older daughters told me about it and shared theirs with me (they don't even live here most of the time!).

My dd wouldn't 'die' if I know when she's having a period, in fact she usually comes and tells me, in between bouts of hormonal crying and stuffing her face with chocolate. And when she starts hers it reminds me mine is due a couple of days later!

Another vote for Clue - I use it, DP uses it and both my girls use it. Simple to use and very useful.

DD has her own app.I put a red dot on the calender when she first started but now she tells me in-between moaning about spots and munching chocolate and nurofen.

Surely she’ll sync with you after a while as the alpha female

ivykaty44 there are four menstruating women in my house and the syncing theory definitely hasn’t worked out for us.
