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.

Natural Cycles, Birth Control App Reviews

  • Didn’t work—pregnant.

    By bdp693
    I have recently found out I am pregnant after three months of religiously using natural cycles to prevent a pregnancy. I took my temperature every day, never had sex on a red day, and did everything else to the letter. Clearly, there’s a reason this isn’t certified contraceptive in the US. There must be some holes. Furthermore, when I contacted natural cycles customer service to see about the possibility of a refund since their algorithm didn’t work, they refused. I’m pregnant when I don’t want to be and out 80 dollars—real class act. I DO NOT RECOMMEND.
  • Helpful for preventing pregnancy naturally

    By almostfamouss
    I have been using natural cycles for almost two years now. I stopped taking the pill because it was causing me to have stomach problems and other health issues. Natural cycles has been easy to use. My husband and I follow what the app tells us- If I am not fertile or when we need to use protection. We have not gotten pregnant yet, so it has worked well for us! It is easy to use, and it really helps you to learn more about your body. We are going to try to get pregnant next month, and I feel more prepared to do so because of this app.
  • Best option out there

    By Caleighsd
    Honestly, I can’t rave enough about Natural Cycles and encourage all my friends to use it simply to have a better understanding of their own body. It’s so easy to use and makes me feel more in control of my decisions. It helps that I’m in a committed relationship, and that I have regular cycles, but truly this app is so simple and informative. Love that there’s another reliable and natural option out there. My doctor was even impressed with how clear and streamlined all the information was on my graph.
  • Knowing yourself is empowerment

    By KD ATX
    I started taking hormonal birth control (the pill) at the age of 17 for 2 years. At 19 I got pregnant with my daughter. I got back on the pill up until 3 years ago (I’m 31) when & started to notice that I could no longer take the pill without wanting to throw up every time. My body was rejecting the thought of having to swallow chemical hormones. At that time, I also met my husband, who supported my decision of going off the pill and other types hormonal birth control (my doctor kept trying to push IUD). It took my body almost a year to regulate itself; I went through horrible night sweats, mood swings, acne flare ups, the works. After some research I ran into “Natural Cycles” and decided to give it a go. I haven’t looked back since! Natural Cycles can be used to either prevent or plan a pregnancy. It’s awesome and empowering because YOU are in control. It takes a little bit to get used to measuring your temperature every morning, but once you have it down, it becomes part of our daily routine. I love getting to know my cycle and look at all the data the app has collected on my cycle! It’s really neat!
  • Natural Cycles has brought me back to who I really am!

    By Amanda Gorman
    I’m so grateful for Natural Cycles. I’m only in the beginning few months with NC but I can already notice a difference in how I feel. I’m more connected to my body and I’ve learned more about my cycle than in my life. Thank you for your great work in this world - helping women reconnect with themselves and their femininity ❤️
  • Great community

    By Kat 312
    Not only is the app great but the community you can join on FaceBook is great. You have a lot of support from others and they answer so many questions. Learned so much about my body and fertility.
  • We followed this app to NOT get pregnant... and now we are

    By Kpeck034
    Well, we’re thrilled to be expecting, but it’s not what we had planned. My husband and I used this app to prevent pregnancy so I could finish grad school, but it didn’t work. I know everyone will assume that we just didn’t follow the app correctly, but we took absolutely no risks and did exactly what it told us to, and here we are!
  • DO IT. you won’t regret it

    By heAther712
    I was on hormonal birth control for 14 years and it literally made me a crazy person. Natural Cycles has allowed me to take control of my fertility while also still preventing pregnancy efficiently.
  • Empowered Woman

    By Zonogues
    Love this app. Love to know my body so well and love to feel so in control of my body through a natural approach. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
  • I’ll never go back to other forms of birth control

    By RShepp
    I’ve used the patch, the mini pill, the ring and had the Mirena IUD in for four years which made my PMS horrendous. I never felt good using any of those forms of birth control, and I wasn’t learning anything about my body or my cycle by using them. The natural cycles app is extremely easy to use; it’s got layer after layer of information backed by scientific data that you can access at any time. Measuring is simple and fast and I am just so excited that this app is out here!!
