Period Tracking App

ENABLES WOMEN TO SEAMLESSLY TRACK AND FIND SOLUTIONS TO ALL THEIR CONCERNS REGARDING THE MONTHLY MENSTRUAL CYCLE
Self Initiated Project, November 2016, Srishti School of Art, Design & Technology

Women are bombarded with so many questions a day about their own body. Sex education in India is seen as a corrupting influence on young minds rather than a means of knowing one’s own body. Girls are given sex education in schools separated from their male classmates and in brief just to get done with the chapter and pass the examination. Even their mothers do not give girls proper explanation as to why they bleed after a certain age. This gives the young girls a feeling that it is a topic of secrecy that even after they grow up and encounter something different from the usual relating to their menstruation they don’t feel free to talk about it to someone.

In a country where ‘menstruation’ is a tabooed topic, a women being able to know when she is getting her periods in advance and preparing for it is important. However it is not just enough to track the cycles. There are other aspects to your periods that women are always concerned about but hesitant to talk about like the varying amount of discharge, it’s color, texture and various other health issues.

The change in lifestyles and environmental degradation has posed a lot of health issues in women that correlates to their menstrual cycle. Unfortunately not many are aware of this and do not know how to take care of one’s own body.

This project went through a linear interaction design process of secondary research, primary research, derivation of insights, personas, scenario, task flow, information architecture etc.

SKETCHES & WIREFRAMES:
Sketches are the initial ideations. Annotating the sketches on what worked and what didn’t work helped in the later stage of wire-framing. Wireframes is an iteration of the sketches compiling all the features that worked in the sketches. They are the rough representation of how the final screens is to look.

VISUAL DESIGN:
Applying material design, other guidelines of visual design and UI design, the wireframes were digitised in this stage.
