Biological clock

Ever wished you could track your menstrual cycle without needing to count days on your fingers? This tiny project here should do the trick.  It displays those days of the cycle that a women is most likely to conceive, if she sets the start of her cycle every month.

It’s easy to understand. If intercourse takes place when the needle is in areas shaded in green then conception is unlikely, the areas shaded in pink are more likely to conceive a female and the areas shaded in blue are more likely to conceive a male. It looks like this:

The black needle on the clock display the current day of the cycle, the red needle at the 6-O-clock position displays the start of the cycle. Whether your cycle ends exactly at 28 days or not, simply select the first item in the menu of this application to reset the cycle (the minute your new cycle starts, that is).

Send me email if you use this; if significant demand exists I will most likely make the following changes:

  1. Fix the pink/blue ratio to be equal in area and to fade in/out gradually.
  2. Change the calculation so that the clock will adjust to your personal cycle (for example, if your cycle is generally 26 days, the clock must use 26 days as a full cycle, and not 28).

The hypothesis for why certain times of the month are better for conceiving a male and certain times for conceiving a female, look at this research proposal over here.
