Natural Cycles, Birth Control App Description

Natural Cycles helps you keep track of your ovulation, period and fertility. The app will show you when to use protection to effectively prevent a pregnancy. It is clinically tested to be 99.5% effective*. *Natural Cycles has a method failure Pearl Index of 0.5, which means that 5 women out of 1000 get pregnant during one year due to a falsely attributed green day. Natural Cycles has a typical-use Pearl Index of 7.0, which means that in total 7 women out of 100 get pregnant during one year due to all possible reasons (e.g. having unprotected sex on red days, failure of the contraceptive method used on red days). Natural Cycles analyses your temperature, period and ovulation to calculate when you are fertile and should use birth control (e.g. condoms). Our algorithm is the brains behind the app. It takes care of all the complex calculations and tells you everything you need to know about your cycle. How it works: Measure your temperature first thing in the morning before you get out of bed. You will need a two decimal basal thermometer to do so. Enter your measurement and other data such as period, sex and LH test results into the app. A green day means you are not fertile. A red day means that you are likely to be fertile and you should use protection. Make sure to read the instructions of use before you get started. For the app to effectively work as a birth control, you should be comfortable with using protection such as condoms on red days. In the beginning, the app will be getting to know your unique cycle, so you will have more red days - this is to ensure effectiveness. Once you’ve measured for a while you can get as little as 8 red days in one cycle. Natural Cycles does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Planning a pregnancy: Natural Cycles goes beyond birth control. Our ‘Plan a pregnancy’ mode lets you know when you are most fertile and time your sex to increase your chances of conceiving. The app will let you know when it’s best to take a pregnancy test. Once a positive test is entered into the app, it switches colours and your features change. You will now be able to track the development of your pregnancy. You can easily switch back to "Prevent". KEY FEATURES - Red and green days to tell you exactly when you should use protection. - Ovulation calculator and detector - Intuitive data entry – temperature, ovulation test results, period - Interactive calendar showing your current and upcoming fertility status - Personalised fertility predictions up to 5 cycles in advance - Informative graph view - Statistics from your cycles and fertility - Integration with Apple Health app ‘Plan a pregnancy’ mode: - Personal fertility scale to pinpoint the optimal days to conceive - Pregnancy detector - Information about your baby’s development SUBSCRIPTION Natural Cycles includes In App purchases for the auto-renewable subscription to the application.

    Can't say enough about this app. It's changed my life! It feels so good to be off birth control that I truly believe was the cause of my anxiety and depression. I've trusted my "Green Days" from the start... 7 months later no babies! I feel so confident in this birth control and no longer have pregnancy scares. Do your research! FAM works! There is a reliable non hormonal birth control option!

    I’ve been on numerous child birth pills, IUD’s and Rings. My body just could not handle it anymore and this app came along at the perfect time. I now have a better understanding of my body and it’s cycles and I feel better than ever without the need for pills.

    For those trying to prevent pregnancy— do not use this product!! I became pregnant while using Natural Cycles trying to prevent pregnancy. After using birth control pills for 3 years I switched to Natural Cycles for a hormone-free pregnancy prevention method. After 6 months of diligently following the recommended usage for preventing pregnancy I took a test and learned I was pregnant, even though I abstained from sex on red days. After learning I was pregnant, I reached out to Natural Cycles. They had given me a few incorrect green days, and they changed some of the data I’d input without my consent after I’d flagged this. Their customer service was really difficult to work with, and they refused to refund me. There is an open law suit in Sweden for unplanned pregnancies while using natural cycles. If you are looking for reliable birth control, steer clear of this product.

    Natural Cycles has become part of me and what i do daily. I love knowing all about my menstrual cycle and being in control of my own body without hormonal birth control. It is powerful for me. Im so happy that i found this app and it is worth every penny. I measure every morning and it’s something u look forward to. Definitely game changing for women, what a way to take the power back with our bodies.
  • Please change the thermometer if need a light!

    So the app itself is very user friendly and is easy to read for fertile/no fertile days. It is super easy to input temps and check stats. My only complaint is that you have to write out all of your symptoms. It would be nice if there were maybe a check list available so that it lines up with your days? You know like on this day you marked these symptoms and this day you marked these. My secondary signs are super closely related to my cycle for me so I still use another app that tracks secondary signs better. Would love to go to just one app for that!
  • Best thing that’s ever happened to me!

    I have been off birth control since Christmas time! I always hated birth control switching from one to the next with irregular periods and some lasting as long as six months! Nothing was working for me and I had totally given up until I saw Yoga Girl or Rachel Brathen post about Natural Cycles I tried the free trial and I’m hooked! I absolutely love it and will probably use it forever. With all the updates teaching you about your cycle and the predictions are always spot on!
