Feminine hygiene brand, Sirona on Wednesday launched India’s first Period Tracker on WhatsApp which will help menstruators track their periods. According to the company’s press statement, the easy-to-use WhatsApp Period Tracking tool will help menstruators across demographics and geographies to keep a tab on their periods just by sending a “Hi” to the Sirona WhatsApp Business Account on +919718866644.
“The Period tracker can be used to track three goals – track periods, conceive, and avoid pregnancy.
