5 Apps for People With Endometriosis
In many ways, the digital age has changed how we menstruate. We can’t use phone apps to cure our symptoms or take away our pain.
However, we can use different apps as a valuable resource to cope with our chronic illnesses.
Several writers in this community have already suggested several phone apps. But technology is constantly adapting, and new apps might have emerged that were not included in some of these existing lists.

Check out these five apps that can help make life a little easier if you have endometriosis. As of the time that this article was written, each of these apps has a free option. Some apps may also include premium features.
MindDoc is a free app that monitors your mental wellness and physical fatigue over a period of time. Every day, you update your mood in the app.
These daily updates take about thirty seconds to complete. In a couple of weeks, the app will generate a helpful chart to help you visualize your mental wellness.
This app is especially helpful for people who want to start tracking their mental wellness but may not have the time to write detailed journal entries.

PainScale is a handy tool for anyone with any kind of chronic illness. The app suggests pain relief strategies, lets you log your symptoms, and creates an instant report that you can give your doctor.
This app is a one-stop shop for inputting your current treatment options, monitoring your flare-ups, and learning some everyday coping methods.
Plus, it has some rave reviews.
This app is designed specifically for people with endometriosis, PCOS, or other menstrual health illnesses. You can use the app to track your symptoms every day.
This tracking is important since it provides quantifiable evidence about your pain that you can then communicate to your doctors. The tag function in the app lets you specify exactly where in your body that you’re hurting, so you can explain exactly how your symptoms are impacting you at any given time.

With endometriosis, it’s important to take note of how your flow and pain may be changing over time. Changes in your symptoms can indicate that your endometriosis is escalating.
