Brilliant period tracking app learns your cycle, sends supplies
Say goodbye to the pajama-clad drug store runs that happen only after you’ve rummaged through every purse you own hunting for one damn tampon because your period showed up early – again. A group of lady geniuses is bringing peace to the masses with a truly amazing app and subscription box combination.
The Monthly Gift is a period tracking app that prevents you from bleeding through your work skirt thus forcing you to wear a sweater around your waist to three office meetings. Users upload details about Aunt Flo’s arrival, how long she stayed, and what emotional wreckage she left in her wake. Spend an afternoon crying through Scandal reruns while eating half a cake? No, just me? Wake up to see your new sheets ruined in the night? Whatever mess your period creates, tell the app all about it with daily updates. Eventually, it gets so good at tracking your monthly blood bath that it tells you what to expect on each day of your cycle. Which is ridiculously amazing because despite living with the bitch for almost 20 years I’m still surprised she makes me sob uncontrollably at adorable puppy gifs.
And if you really want to feel the extent of this miracle product, sign up for the monthly Little Black Box that holds a mix of tampons, pads, and liners to match your customized period profile. Is your period light and heavy but never in the middle? No problem. Choose the products that work best for you and only those will be delivered to your doorstep. No more cabinets full of tampons you’ll never use. There’s no extra charge based on your preferences. And because we needed more proof that God is a woman, they come with chocolate!
Between tracking our period, delivering the necessary goods to tackle the monster that is menstruation, and throwing in the precious gift that is chocolate, this app-box combo is the perfect, selfless boyfriend that doesn’t exist in the wild. The only thing this life-changing service needs is a premium account option that lets women add on their favorite red, white or rosé wine.
The boxes run at $10 a month for a 12-month subscription, $12 a month for a 6-month subscription, or $13 per individual order. And if you buy in March, you’ll be helping a girl who doesn’t have easy access to sustainable feminine hygiene products. For each new subscription this month, Monthly Gift will donate a box of goods to those in need in partnership with the nonprofit Days For Girls.
Just think of the money you’ll save not having to replace ruined panties while also helping a woman in need – all from the comfort of your couch.
