Tracking menstrual cycle for training

    I’m looking at trying to track my menstrual cycle, however I have the Mirena coil which has stopped all bleeding. I still have some kind of cycle because I have other symptoms such as very occasional spotting, tender boobs and every so often I turn into am emotional mess, but other times it’s really hard to tell if I’m being grumpy because of my hormones or if I’m just in a bad mood. I’ve been reading about tracking with basal temperature but I’m not sure how accurate it will be. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions?

    I use the Clue app but I’m not sure if it can handle periods without bleeding– it seems like it should though! I just haven’t been fortunate enough to be in that situation. (I have the Mirena as well.) You could definitely track symptoms and then look at the pattern over time.
