A note from the author about why she deleted her own period data from the Health app

A few months ago, I decided to delete all of the data I had stored in the Health app on my iPhone related to my menstrual cycle. I had been using the app to track my periods for a couple of years, and while it was helpful to have a record of when my period started and how long it lasted, I no longer felt comfortable sharing that information with Apple.

There are a few different ways to delete Health data, and I’ll explain how to do it for both iPhone and iPad.

If you decide you want to stop tracking your menstrual cycle in the Health app, or if you simply want to delete all of your historical data, here’s how:

On iPhone:

Open the Health app and tap the Browse tab.
Tap Categories, then tap Menstruation.
Tap Edit in the top right corner, then tap Delete All Data.
