This family planning app can be used by women to either help inform them on how to better increase their chances of pregnancy, or to help prevent pregnancies all-together.

The 'DOT' app has been described as one of ten that is working to "change the face of global health for women and girls" due to its accessibility and the fact that expensive contraceptives or surgeries are not required to control pregnancy when using it. The family planning app tracks period start dates and from there, is able to track the user's risk of pregnancy for each day. The app provides information on how to prevent pregnancy, plan it and predict future periods by comparing the user's bodily functions to standardized fertility data.

This app is an accessible option for women and girls around the world who seek to plan or prevent pregnancies in a way that is affordable and effective.
