About the study

Why we’re doing this

Why we’re doing this

The symptoms of PMS and PMDD can be debilitating, and millions of women and people who menstruate worldwide are affected each month. We want to change this.

We’re looking for study participants who haven’t used the Flo app before (and aren’t pregnant or taking hormonal contraceptives) to help us understand how PMS affects them.
How it works

How it works

Recruits will be split into two groups at random. The interventional group will use Flo to track and monitor their health and symptoms, the control group will just monitor their health and symptoms the same way they usually would.

All recruits will complete a health and well-being survey at the start, and another survey each month of the study.
What you’ll get

What you’ll get
