Lily is a remarkably powerful, yet beautiful and easy way to determine the fertile and infertile phases of your cycle. It is the perfect tool for you to learn more about your body, while being discreet, reliable, and absolutely private!
You want to learn more about Lily and how it works? Head over to http://whimsicallily.com for more detailed information!
Lily lets you evaluate your cycles either based on averages (comparable to the calendar method,) or based on your body's own symptoms using either FAM/NFP (Fertility Awareness Method/Natural Family Planning) from the US, or NFP (AG NFP) developed by workgroup NFP from Germany. Your choice!
Lily can be a great little helper for you to achieve your family planning goals, and it works incredibly well for both: women who are trying to conceive, as well as women who are trying to avoid a pregnancy. Lily is also used by many women who simply want to learn more about their own body!
Evaluating your cycles based on averages is easy as pie, but a little less accurate. And even though the evaluation of your cycles based on your body's own symptoms requires a little more effort, Lily will be able to evaluate your fertility much more accurately – which is especially important if you want to use Lily to help you avoid a pregnancy.
If you want to use Lily's averages-based evaluation method, you can start right out of the box. All you need is the starting day of your past period, or two.
To successfully evaluate your cycles using one of Lily's symptoms-based evaluation methods, all you need is a thermometer labeled for taking your basal body temperature with two decimals behind the dot for °C, or with one decimal for °F – and that's it! You don't need to know or learn any complicated rules, Lily will do the work for you!
Lily also includes these features:
• see the time you are most fertile during your cycle and an estimated for the begin of your next period
• predict your 12 upcoming cycles
• charting of your temperature (Fahrenheit or Celsius)
• charting of your cervical fluid and its changes throughout the cycle
• view your data in the graph and calendar and get detailed information for every day by the touch of a finger
• add details on your love life (with or without protection)
• record interferences that may have lead to higher temperatures
• record period flow and associated symptoms
• record your mood
• password-protect your data
• an extensive in-app help
• discreet name and icon to avoid awkward moments
You can unlock even more features with an in-app purchase (We do have to pay our bills somehow!):

• rearrange the 'Your Data' menu, as well as the ability to hide tracking menus you don't need

• print your charts and data via AirPrint, or export and send them as PDF documents via email to your physician or anyone else you like
• smart reminders that tell you whenever Lily still waits for important data
• custom reminders for anything you want

Ratings and Reviews
Great app for tracking
Having tried a couple other apps, Lily is my favorite. It does exactly what I need it to do. Other apps ask for temperature, cervical fluid quality, etc, but don’t always use it in estimating ovulation. Lily is very clear and user friendly. The documentation is very understandable. I thought I fully understood my cycles prior to using Lily, but I realized I was wrong about a few things. I do understand my body a lot better now, and I highly suggest this app. I am a scientist by training, and I love data. Lily is fun to use, and the charting makes it easy to visualize.
Another important feature is that Lily data is completely stored on your phone so you are the only one with access to the data (or anyone you share it with).
Although I didn’t need to purchase anything to get all data from Lily I did anyway to support the company. It’s relatively inexpensive and a one time fee. If you have a couple extra bucks I recommend paying it just to support the app creator and keep this app available!
Comprehensive, clean interface
Well worth paying for premium features, IMO. Many fertility trackers are primarily geared towards women trying to conceive. Period trackers can be more neutral, but they tend to be very limited in their scope. Lily supports all women’s reproductive goals, whether it’s trying to conceive, trying to avoid, or simply getting a feel of your cycles.
I’m in the “preconception” phase, in which I’m closer, my IUD is out, I’m taking my prenatals, I’m temping using a TempDrop or oral BBT thermometer, but I’m not actively trying. This has been a great way to monitor myself.
I’m tracking my temperature, thermometer used (a feature I can only use with the paid custom tracking option), times having sex and any applicable birth control method (Lily lists so many, from barriers, hormonal, and pull-out), and period. Lily has both a beautiful graph and a calendar marking my expected period dates.
Excellent fertility tracking app
I’ve read all the books on FAM and had been trying for months to find a system that I trusted to track my fertility signs. After much researching, I found Lily and have fallen in love with this app. It is easy to use, it tells me exactly what its thinking, and it helps me to remember to log things if I’ve forgotten. I started with the free version but quickly switched to the paid version so that I could get access to the additional features and because I wanted to support this small family company. Although I am TTA right now, I recommended this app to a friend who was TTC, and it worked for them on the first try after just a few months of use! If you are wondering if you should get this app, the answer is yes!
