Description

Introducing the intelligent birth control app. Natural Cycles is a hormone-free method of birth control that learns your unique cycle. The app identifies ovulation by analyzing your basal body temperature which you should measure when you wake up. Natural Cycles is for women over the age of 18. Natural Cycles does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Natural Cycles is only available as a method of birth control in the USA and Europe. In countries outside the USA and Europe, Natural Cycles is intended to be used as a fertility tracker. The app also integrates with the Apple Health App.

Natural Cycles is 93% effective under typical use, which means that 7 women out of 100 get pregnant during 1 year of use.* Natural Cycles is 98% effective with perfect use. No method of contraception is 100% effective, even when using the app perfectly you can still have an unintended pregnancy.

Natural Cycles shows you:
○ How your unique cycle works
○ Daily updates on where you are in your cycle
○ When you are in the fertile phase of your cycle and need to use protection (e.g. condoms)
○ When your ovulation is detected and predicted
○ When your period is coming up and when you can expect PMS
○ The science behind your menstrual cycle

Natural Cycles is:
○ The first and only birth control app available in both the USA and Europe
○ Backed by scientific research
○ CE marked & FDA cleared

Pricing Plans:
Yearly plan: 99.99 USD/year. Free thermometer included.
Monthly plan: 9.99 USD/ month. Thermometer not included.
Free trial: 30 day free trial. Thermometer not included.

To use the intelligent app you need a two-decimal basal thermometer.

Precautions:
○ Natural Cycles’ effectiveness as a contraceptive is not affected by fluctuating temperatures and/or irregular cycles (i.e. cycles shorter than 21 days or longer than 35 days). However, you will experience an increased number of red days as predicting fertility is more difficult in these circumstances.
○ Natural Cycles does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Use a condom to protect against STIs.

Editors’ Notes

Understanding the complexities of ovulation cycles is hard enough. Thankfully, Natural Cycles aims to make the monitoring process a whole lot less stressful. By logging just a few vital signs, the app’s powerful algorithm can help predict crucial fertility windows, pregnancy, or even potential miscarriages. We’re also impressed by Natural Cycles’ clear, intuitive design—no cold waiting rooms to be found here.

I love this form of birth control! It’s liberating and easy and accurate!

I am 24 and have been on and off birth control since I was 18. I’ve never really liked the idea of being on long term (or short term honestly) hormonal birth controls. I tried a copper iud but my uterus rejected it 🙄 I was so close to getting an implant because I was getting pretty bad at taking my pill but then I heard about this app. I talked with my partner about how he felt about doing this and he said “if I was a girl I would use this! It sounds a lot safer than using pills or something permanent.” And that was all I needed to get off the pill. We’ve been using this app for 4 months now and I work night shift so as long as I sleep for 4 hours I can take an accurate temperature. He can also download the app so he can see my green and red days to see when we need to be more careful. I feel great using this too because when we start trying to get pregnant (3 years away but still) I won’t have to detox my body from the pill or go to the doctor to get anything removed or anything. It does take discipline to take your temp every morning but it’s worth it and easy if you have a routine. I use a sleep app called sleep cycle to make sure I’ve gotten enough hours to take a temp so that’s part of my routine ☺️

Makes Me Wonder Why I Ever Took the Pill

I depended on oral contraceptives from age 14-32. First it was to treat painful periods, then acne, then stabilize depressive mood swings, and finally to prevent pregnancy. It seemed like the magic answer!
In my 20’s my abnormal cervix cell issues began. My doctor insisted there was no causation only correlation with oral contraceptives and cervix cancer, but after my 2nd health scare in March of 2018 I dropped the pill and dramatically claimed I’d rather be pregnant than dead. By August, just 5 months of no pill and using this app instead, my cervix cells were back to normal and healthy again!
I love this app and wish it was provided to me as a contraceptive option earlier in my life. The only tip/trick is taking your temp IMMEDIATELY when you wake: before you pee, or cuddle, or pet the cat, or even toss and turn. Even with my deviating temperatures I have become more in tune with my body and I have successfully identified my ovulation days. I feel more in control of my body. I’ve escaped a flawed women’s health system and opted out of the mass pharmaceutical world. There are no side effects. There is no anxiety over remembering a pill. There’s just basic science and common sense and it’s great for my partner and I!
