Periodic Calendar (Kalendarz cykli miesiączkowych) jest aplikacją z graficznym interfejsem, która pomaga kobietom monitorować cykle menstruacyjne i przewidywać okresy płodności. Informacje te mogą być pomocne zarówno przy planowaniu poczęcia jak i zapobieganiu ciąży.

Periodic Calendar zapewnia obsługę metod: podstawowej temperatury ciała (ang. Basal Body Temperature - BBT) oraz objawowo-termicznej, które wykazują wysoką niezawodność w przewidywaniu okresów płodności. Użytkownik może wybrać dowolny podzbiór funkcji, jakie zostaną wykorzystane lub nawet przejść do ogólnie stosowanej metody kalendarzowej (bardzo zawodnej w przypadku wyłącznego stosowania).

Autorzy Periodic Calendar wciąż podkreślają, że nie jest on równoważnym zamiennikiem lekarzy i konsultantów do planowania okresów płodności. Przed użyciem tej aplikacji, należy skonsultować się z lekarzem lub przeczytać dobrą książkę na ten temat.

PRZEWIDYWANIA WYKONANE PRZEZ TEN PROGRAM NIGDY NIE POWINNY BYĆ UWAŻANE ZA KOŃCOWE. ZASTOSOWANE METODY NIE SĄ W 100% SKUTECZNE DLA WSZYSTKICH KOBIET.

Cycle jest kalendarzem dla kobiet. Na podstawie podanej długości cyklu lub kilku okresów potrafi obliczyć pozostałą liczbę dni do menstruacji, wyznaczyć dni "bezpiecznego" seksu, okres płodny, liczbę dni do owulacji oraz określić dnień narodzin dziecka. Program pozwala użytkownikowi na tworzenie notatek i pomaga nadzorować gospodarkę hormonalną regulowaną tabletkami antykoncepcyjnymi.

Funkcje programu:

  • Określa, w które dni wystąpi menstruacja na podstawie długości cyklu lub statystyk wynikających z poprzednich okresów.
  • Określa dni "bezpiecznego" seksu, dni płodne oraz czas owulacji.
  • Wyznacza dnień narodzin dziecka.
  • Pozwala na tworzenie notatek.
  • Pomaga nadzorować przyjmowanie hormonalnych tabletek antykoncepcyjnych.
  • Umożliwia pracę wielu użytkownikom. Dane każdego użytkownika są chronione hasłem.

OSTRZEŻENIE: Program nie jest niezawodnym środkiem antykoncepcyjnym. Nie stanowi także ochrony przed chorobami wenerycznymi, takimi jak AIDS. Jest to raczej sposób na gromadzenie danych medycznych w formie elektronicznej i ich przetwarzanie w celu wyciągnięcia wniosków na podstawie opracowanych statystyk. W żadnym wypadku ten program nie zastąpi ginekologa.

Please consider using pcalendar instead of cycle because cycle is outdated, not maintained any more and pcalendar simply overpasses it.
