Hey I found an open source menstrual cycle tracking app called Drip that doesn't call home to anyone and encrypts your data on your device. It's gender inclusive and it has a prebuilt version Android that you can get either on F-Droid or on their site here: bloodyhealth.gitlab.io

Please boost so others can see this!

For some reason, today I’m finding myself making a thread about plastic boxes. I actually had it drafted for one or two years and never published it, but some exciting new drama in this captivating saga made me complete it today 🙃
