SMS: It's Time To Get Pregnant

A new text-messaging service called EggAlert wants to help women to keep better track of their menstrual period. The service calculates a woman's next ovulation time and sends a text message (SMS) to her cell phone alerting/warning her that she is at the height of her fertility. While the Website of EggAlert focuses on women who want to become pregnant, we're thinking the service could also be used as a form of contraception.

According to the service can also be used both as a Notifier for the upcoming premenstrual symptom, to schedule certain events around the time of menstruation and as a reminder for women who want to do self breast examinations.
