- Email Alerts: are sent to the email address(es) of your choice. After turning on alerts, be sure to indicate alert frequency and type of alert you'd like (expected period, late period).

Periods / Fertility
- Cycles: Here you may control how iPeriod computes your statistics. iPeriod calculates averages using all periods by default. You may turn this feature off and tell iPeriod to use only a specific number of previous cycles. This may be useful for women whose cycles have recently changed dramatically. You may also tell iPeriod to ignore cycles longer than a given length. For example, if you had an unusually long 50 day cycle that is skewing your statistics, you may tell iPeriod to ignore cycles of this length.
- Ovulation: Choose to have iPeriod predict ovulation and fertility or not. If you are not interested in this information, simply turn off this preference. You may also adjust the luteal phase here. iPeriod assumes a luteal phase length of fourteen days, which is the average for most women. The luteal phase begins when ovulation occurs. The luteal phase continues until Day 1 of your next period, or the first day that bleeding begins.
- Pregnancy: If you are pregnant, let iPeriod know here. Pregnancy mode disables alerts and projections, calculates your due date and adjusts statistics accordingly. When your period returns after pregnancy, you may turn this setting off or simply add a new period.
