FertilityFriend.com's Signs Analyzer allows you to find patterns in your fertility signs. It also allows you to spot usual or unusual occurrences of signs that may be related to your menstrual cycle.
The purpose of the Signs Analyzer is to help you identify patterns in your fertility signs beyond your temperature chart. For example, you may wonder if you get headaches before or after ovulation or if your ovulation pain is an accurate indicator of ovulation. The graph will help you to find the answers to these kinds of questions in the context of your personal cycle history.

Another important usage is to compare a given chart to your usual pattern. The Signs Analyzer allows you to plot the signs of a specific chart on top of your usual pattern graph. This allows you to quickly spot common occurrences and unusual occurrences of a given sign. The Signs Analyzer is integrated with the home page system and allows you to check your usual pattern against any chart displayed on a home page (for example, your chart, a chart from a friend, or any home page you are able to view). This is particularly useful to compare sign patterns and identify similarities.
You can drill down to select a single sign and see it across the cycles you selected.
Within the App tap the "Analysis" tab and look under the Comparison section.
On the desktop site click the Analysis menu and look under the Comparing Your Charts section.
The horizontal axis represents the cycle days. You can pin your charts on ovulation day, the cycle start date or the end of the cycle. This allows you to see patterns more accurately.
When pinning your charts on ovulation, positive numbers represent days past ovulation (DPO). Negative numbers represent days before ovulation. The vertical red line always represents the ovulation day.
The vertical axis lists the different signs (numbered and color-coded). The signs are listed alphabetically. Each line of the graph represents the days for which 2 or more occurences of that sign have been recorded. The more horizontal bars, the more frequently this sign occured on that particular day.
The highlighted cycle is displayed with an outline on the corresponding days and signs.
The Signs Analyzer takes into account all data under the "Special", "Meds" and "Custom Data" sections of the entry form.
This tool is the natural complement of the Chart Overlay which shows you patterns in your temperature curve.
