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.

    I have had the IUD and multiple other of birth controls since I've been 16. It wasn't till about a year ago that I had just had enough and decided I really really wanted off. I found this app and was interested right away. Talked to my boyfriend about it so he knew the risks just like me and we decided to go for it. Best decision I have ever made. I feel more like myself than I have in years! I love to learn about my body and special cycle. It's been so amazing that I'd never go back!!

    Natural cycles is a great way to monitor your body and obvious signs our bodies give but perhaps never noticed before. I’m much more in tune and aware of my cycles and also much happier to be on the natural birth control route.
  • Love the app!

    I love the this app. I only wish the thermometer lights up and that it connected to my phone. So I don’t have to put it. If that happened I would give it 5 stars. Love the messages and the calendar. Works gray

    I’m 27 years old and I had been on the pill since I was 16. I knew i needed to get off the pill but every other form of birth control scared me. I was skeptical about this, but I’ve been using it for 5 cycles now and it is scary how accurate it is. I feel so much better in so many ways now that I’m not on the pill and I’m thankful to have found natural cycles. I highly recommend this birth control.
  • Love the app!

    Easy to use, intuitive, and offers reminders and suggestions that are helpful for remembering to take your temp. I only wish it were less expensive.

  • Why pay?!

    This app is the Fertility Awareness Method. It’s nothing magic. Why on earth would I pay $80 when I can use many other apps out there to chart my bbt for free? Do yourself a favor: read “taking charge of your fertility” and use a free app. Then you will know how to know if you are “red” or “green” and won’t need an overpriced app to tell you.
  • Education is power

    I’m 32 and was on and off birth control for 15 years. I’ve had fibroadenomas (lumps) removed from my breasts. I suffered from sore breasts a week before my period. It took me a while to get aroused... But being OFF birth control has made all those symptoms disappear. Synthetic hormones are a huge (and dangerous) chemical disruption to your entire system. I love Natural Cycles. I love knowing my body better. I love NOT having sore breasts before my period. I think if we could educated women about how our bodies work (with the help from Natural Cycles), then more women would ditch their birth control and actually be able to know when their ovulating. I actually didn’t know anything about ovulation until I started using this app. I’ve also been using the PH strips and I feel extremely satisfied with this app. I’ve had sex, with protection, and knew if I was ovulating or not. That’s a strong sense of awareness. Rather than ‘popping a pill,’ get to your know your body and let your hormones do what they were meant to do! I just love Natural Cycles and have referred it to many of my friends. The world needs more people like the ones who invented Natural Cycles!

    Great but now the app won’t open. Is anyone fixing this?
  • No need for the pill-this is the method for me!

    I previously have, but now can't take the pill. And I'm in a serious relationship where we don't want to get pregnant anytime soon. Natural cycles became very popular on my Facebook newsfeed with a couple of friends sharing it. So we researched the app and science behind it and trusted the natural method. No hormones yey! We decided to purchase a years subscription and see what we could learn about my cycle. And it has been brilliant! Watching my temperatures rise and fall really helps. And my boyfriend enjoys understanding when my hormones mean I will be grumpy! I've been using the app for 4 months now and my cycle had settled down and become very regular. But actually this last month I've been really affected by stress, and it's delayed each part of my cycle. Yet the app kept up with my body and still found my ovulation. I've been rewarded with more green days by diligently measuring each morning so I'm loving my experience!!
