Tracking this information could also be extremely beneficial for women who suffer from endometriosis, so they can chart the amount of pelvic pain they suffer and exactly when in their cycle it occurs, along with other symptoms of the disease such as pain going to the bathroom, painful sex and heavy bleeding during periods. Some apps also help them to connect with other endometriosis sufferers to share advice and get emotional support.
