    This can only be done through the web portal not through the app?

    That's correct, right now it's only possible to edit the average cycle length through the web portal.

    What do you count as a cycle?

    Hey there,

    Your cycle starts on day 1 of your period, and lasts until you get your next period (which is day 1 of the next cycle). Hope this helps :)

    Hello, my cycle since late 2013 have been erratic since having my implanon rod removed, 6 months later I finally have a regular cycle but can't seem to update this given it's more than 2 months since using Kindara, what would be your suggestion? Thank you

    My cycle changes every few months. When I started using the app was 27 days, now is 25. Can I update it every time it changes?

    Hey tha_dougsta - the best option right now would be to have us manually sort this out for you. Please email us at feedback@kindara.com and we'll take care of things!

    camenaiki - If you've entered more than three cycles in the app, the app will calculate your average cycle length based on the data you've entered, rather than the average cycle length you entered at the beginning. If you've entered less than 3 cycles, you can change your average cycle length at our user web portal. If you'd like to omit any of your cycles from the prediction, please email us at feedback@kindara.com and we'll sort things out for you.

    Hey there! The app will use all of the data you've entered into Kindara to determine your average cycle length. Over time, as you enter more data into Kindara, the calculations will become more accurate. If you think the prediction isn't working correctly, please let us know at feedback@kindara.com.

    On the charts in the community I see numbered blue dots...I don't understand how those happen, is it automatic, or is it a option we have to select. Also at the bottom I see P 1 2 3 which I am guessing refers to peak. How do you get those on there?

    Hi there,

    The numbered blue dots appear after you mark a temperature shift in the app. This counts the days from the day after ovulation until the end of your cycle - i.e., the length of the luteal phase. To mark a temperature shift, go to the Data screen and tap the checkbox next to 'Temperature Shift' under the temp wheel.

    To mark a Peak Day, go to the Data screen, scroll down to the Cervical Fluid section, and tap the checkbox next to Peak Day.

    My first two charted cycles gave me wonky cycles because I was breastfeeding and just off the pill (made my first cycle 46 days and second 32). My third and consecutive cycles have been more consistent (28 days). The app is still factoring my first two cycles into my average so I can't exclude these from the average data (so I have a more accurate estimate). Same averaging problem is happening for my peak days (it's not seeing that the first two months were inaccurate) and it causes the "fertile window" estimate to be way off.

    I've cometo what should be the end of my cycle so my period is marked onto the chart to start, but its not. How can i remove the red dot please. I dont want to change cycle length as this is on average correct.

    yadee87 - I'm so sorry about the problems you've been experiencing! Please write us at feedback@kindara.com and we'll look into it right away.

    Jazzyjenbo - the dots on the chart represent your predicted period - not your actual period. They remain on the chart even if your period is later than normal so you can see how much later it is than average. If you want, you can turn period prediction off. To do so, tap More->Settings, then tap the slider next to Period/Fertility Prediction to turn it off.

    I got my iud remove and I haven't had a normal period how do i track it since I only had spotting for a few days

    Hi Elena, There's no need to mark a new cycle in the app - you can just track your signs each day as they're relevant to you (including spotting). Once you get your period, you can start a new cycle.

    I've just adjusted my cycle length to 28 days in the web portal but the app hasn't updated? Still showing a 31 day cycle this month?

    Courtney

    Hey renee, Hm, is it possible you've already entered more than 3 cycles in the app? After you've entered at least 3 cycles, the app will calculate your average cycle length based on the data you've entered, rather than the average cycle length at the beginning. If you haven't entered 3 cycles and this is still happening, please email us at feedback@kindara.com and we'll look into this further.

    Hi all! I can't figure out how to delete a day of menstruation on the app. How do I get rid of this 6th day?! Thanks!

    Okay, this kind of sucks! I am new to the app and would like to add the first day of my period date for the past 4 months (as I always mark it on my calendar). The app and online portal only let me add one date. I could provide this data for the past 4 months! Ridiculous. Please tell me if I am doing something wrong.

    Hi Rachel, to edit your data just go to the day that you want to edit, select the data you want to enter, and then deselect the data you want to delete. So if you wanted to edit your menstruation, simply tap on the Menstruation - Little (or whichever button you pressed) again, and it will deselect it.  Hope that helps :)

    Hi admin, I'm sorry the app is giving you trouble! You can enter past data if you'd like.  Here's how to do that:

    To enter past data you can use the arrows next to Cycle Day on the Data Screen, to navigate back to the day you want to enter data for, and then enter it as you would for entering data for "today". It's probably easiest to work your way backwards, starting from the most recent, and working your way back.

    For the First Day of any cycle, tap the amount of menstruation you experienced on that day (light, medium, or heavy). This will automatically change that day to Day 1 of the cycle.

    I hope that was helpful. Let me know what else we can do for you. :)

    My chart is has swapped my peak fertility days with when I should start my next period and I'm not sure why. One day there were little stars from day 14 to 18 of my cycle and now they are dots which represent when you'll start your period?

    Hi Victoria, I'm so sorry about that!  I totally understand how confusing that would be - it sounds like you may have found a bug.  Would you mind writing in to feedback@kindara.com with a screenshot of what you're seeing?  If you're on an iPhone, you can take a screenshot by pressing the home button and the power button at the same time.  I'll have our engineers look into it right away.  Let me know if you have any questions about this!

    Hello, i think the prediction app isnt working correctly because the first period i used the app it was 30 days, then 34, then 29, then 26, anda the last one 28. But the app always predices 34 days. Could you check it please? (Im sorry my english isnt so good, if you prefer i speak spanish better) thank you

    Hi ysik_091, thanks for contacting us!  Kindara actually uses an average of your past cycles in order to predict how long your cycle is going to be.  It looks like the app currently has 30.6 days recorded as an average for you.  If the app isn't predicting according to about 30 days it's possible you need to refresh the app by logging out and then back in again.  Let me know if you have any further questions after trying this!

    Hi there. I've changed my average cycle length to 27 days as I've had my second full cycle off the implant and it has returned to what I had prior to having the implant. I've only entered one month of data and yet it's not updating my calendar or my chart so everything is still at 30 days. This is incorrect and means I'm having to count everything off myself! How do I get this resolved? Thanks.

    I'm doing something wrong I think. I thought I had this set up to tell me approximately when I would start my next period, but I'm not sure because it never does. Also, when I clicked on the web portal link above thinking I needed to update my cycle length, I noticed my email is incorrect. It should be landrews1222 not landrewa1222. How do I fix that? I guess I'm just a hot mess:)

    Hi, I've been tracking my periods manually for almost 2 years now. Can I enter back logged data into this app?

    Hi, I'm in my 4th cycle and the app hasn't recalculated my cycle and fertile periods according to the lengths of my previous 3 cycles. Is there something I need to do to make it start adjusting based on my real data?

    Follow up- actually in reading past comments I've realized i probably don't want it to average yet- my first cycle was after going off BC and was 90+ days, so if it averages that in permanently it'll mess it up. Does it recalculate based on your past three months, or keep an average of all previous months?
