Natural Cycles is an intelligent, non-hormonal birth control app that learns your unique cycle and tells you when you can and can’t get pregnant.
We know a birth control app might be a new concept to many, but what exactly does it mean for you? Natural Cycles is an intelligent app where women enter their temperature data. After doing this, they then receive a fertility status on their phone. It’s birth control because the app maps your cycle and informs you of your fertile days, so you know when to use protection or abstain from sex because you could get pregnant.

Both numbers are important.
The perfect use shows the highest achievable effectiveness rate, which is obtained if you do not have unprotected intercourse on red days, i.e. always uses condom or abstains on red days.
The effectiveness of Natural Cycles will be lower than perfect use if you do not use protection or abstain on red days. Natural Cycles is proven to be 93% effective with typical use. Always make sure to use protection or abstain on red days if you want to prevent pregnancies.
It’s important to ask yourself before using Natural Cycles whether you would be willing to use protection or abstain from sex on red days. If the answer is no, you should talk to a doctor about a more suitable method of birth control. Is Natural Cycles right for me?
