iGyno is the App that every woman has been waiting for, set to be the App of the year award in the Health and Fitness category. It has been developed in collaboration with doctors from the American Gynaecological Association.
IGyno will be your virtual gynaecologist, helping you to manage all aspects of female health and teaching you methods of prevention, crucial for the early diagnosis of tumours.
The App is supported by impressive high tech graphics and animation, coupled with unparalleled ease of use.
Let’s look at the features in detail.
• Forecast of your menstrual cycle, ovulation, fertile days and days on which a boy or a girl is more likely to be conceived.
• Management of your personal menstrual calendar, with the option of inserting daily notes and up to 23 items regarding physiological symptoms and states of mind. A further option also enables you to bookmark the dates on which you had intercourse, via the use of a small heart symbol. Now everything will be under your complete control! In addition you can better plan your vacations and other events around your period.
• A video demonstrates how to correctly carry out tactile self-examination. Additional images help to monitor changes in the breast that should be reported to your doctor.
