Mon.thly.Info is a really simple, useful website I use to track my period. It uses my past menstruation cycles to predict when I'm going to start my next one, and it emails me a customized reminder when it's coming.

Wow, this is useful! The email reminders will come in handy.

How funny. I was just complaining about how there wasn't an iCal plugin or something for this.

Very simple. Very cute design. Thanks so much.

Ah, did you develop this? I've used MyMonthlyCycles on and off for years (when I'm not on the pill) but this is much cuter.

A good friend of mine made it. Concept, design, everything. I designed the favicon, so I felt like I wasn't overstepping my bounds by posting it here. =)

We didn't find out that MyMonthlyCycles existed until after Mon.thly launched.

Gah, I've been meaning to make this for years. More power to you! Site looks great.

There's also, which I used before mymonthlycycles, and which has been around ages in webtime -- probably close to 10 years. But since I've been meaning to get back to tracking now that I'm off the pill again, I'm going to use now because it's cute and simple. Thanks for posting!

This is great!

I've been using this! Took a while to figure out how to use though (I thought you click on the days for the _duration_ of your period).

So, I'm a guy, but I'd just like to say this (at least the front page) is really slickly designed, and a good use of ajax.

Oh god, I am so bad at this stuff, and obsessed with the internet. Thank you!

Neat! I'm the worst when it comes to anticipating my cycle. I will definitely use this. Also, such a beautifully designed page! Well done.

Ooooo, it looks like Jezebel has picked it up! Yay for predictable cycles!

This is a great idea that answers a genuine need and is very well executed. Kudos and many thanks to your friend.

Mon.thly.Info was featured in this months print edition of BUST magazine. Congratulations!

(I intend to switch to this from mymonthlycycles once my cycles even out again after my baby is born - it's a much cleaner interface, and cuter to look at!)

Hey, I just wanted to pop in and say I LOVE this. I had been trying to find a reliable way to track my period since I was a teenager (29 now), and my former method (blacking out days on my checkbook register's calendar) isn't really reliable - I write one check a month, and my current book's calendar ended in '06 since I use it so rarely. Also, I'm lazy, and had myself convinced that my cycle was "all over the place". I now know that it's not at ALL - I was just a flake about tracking it.

Anyway, I'm online all the freaking time, so this is no biggie, and I've been using this since Feb, and it's easy, simple and straightforward. And I get an email 2 days before my period. Yay! I don't use hormonal BC, so for awhile there, it was all, "ok, I think I'm gonna get it in the next week or so....maybe? Or maybe I was supposed to get it last week? Hmm." But now that I've been using it for about 6 months, I have it nailed down.

Wow, I sound like an ad. I will say that my first "2 day warning" email said something like "you have 14,333 days until the start of your next period! Love, Mon.thly :)" but I emailed her and it was fixed. Silly math. :)

I'm a little embarrassed at how excited that I get to finally use this. I discovered the site while I was pregnant so it's been sitting in my links just waiting for my body to catch up. ;)

Any thoughts on making an iphone app that works with the site? Just wondering. Thanks for the awesome tool!
