In today's fast-paced and hectic world, it can be challenging to keep up with our physical health. Our busy schedules, long work hours, and stressful lives can make it difficult to prioritize our well-being, especially for women.

Women, in particular, are susceptible to various health issues, such as low fertility, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), hyperplasia cancer, and menopausal transitions. That's where the Apple Watch comes in as a life-saving tool that can help women stay healthy and safe.

Designed with many features, the Apple Watch is a smart wearable that can detect irregular menstrual cycles, PCOS, hyperplasia cancer, and menopausal transitions. Tracking your menstrual cycle with an iPhone and Apple Watch, you can use the Health app and get notifications about your next period or when a fertile window is approaching.

With the latest iOS 16 and watchOS 9 updates, you can monitor your menstrual health condition easily.

You can now log six months of menstrual data and track the irregularity of your menstrual cycle, which may indicate an underlying health condition. This feature has been helpful in diagnosing PCOS and hyperplasia cancer early on, giving women a better chance at treatment and recovery.

But the Apple Watch isn't just about tracking menstrual cycles. With actionable insights, you can get a comprehensive picture of your menstrual health. The Apple Watch tracks your wrist temperature and notifies you when ovulation is estimated, making it easier for women to track their fertility and plan accordingly.

Getting Started with Cycle Tracker

  • Open the Health app on your iPhone and select the Browse tab 
  • Tap on Cycle Tracking
  • Finish the on-screen instructions and get started.



The length of your average cycle and the number of days your period typically lasts are among the information you've logged about your prior periods and periods in the past that are used to anticipate your next period. You have the choice to add information about your cycle history while setting up Cycle Tracking, including the day your most recent period began, how long it typically lasted, and how long your normal cycle is.

  • Open the Cycle Tracking app on your Apple Watch, swipe to the appropriate date, and then hit the oval to record your period.
