Natural Cycles - Birth Control App Details

Introducing digital birth control. A natural method of birth control that uses a smart algorithm to learn your cycle and identify your ovulation by analyzing your basal body temperature. 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. Natural Cycles is 93% effective under typical use, which means that 7 women out of 100 get pregnant during 1 year of 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 digital method of birth control available in both the USA and Europe ○ Backed by scientific research ○ CE marked & FDA cleared Pricing Plans: Yearly plan: 79.99 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 app you need a two-decimal basal thermometer. Precautions: ○ As a contraceptive, Natural Cycles may be less suitable for you if you have irregular menstrual cycles (i.e. cycles shorter than 21 days or longer than 35 days) and/or fluctuating temperatures as predicting fertility is more difficult in these circumstances. Natural Cycles’ effectiveness as a contraceptive is not affected by irregular cycles, but you will experience an increased number of red days, which can reduce your satisfaction with Natural Cycles. ○ Natural Cycles does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Use a condom to protect against STIs. Want to learn more about Natural Cycles?

Natural Cycles - Birth Control App Reviews

  • Love this app! Although I have unique side effect

    5
    By Jharrisonstudio
    Omg, I love being able to accurately track my fertility without using Birth Control pills or implants! I hated all of the hormones. I feel so empowered and in control now that I know when my cycle is going to come. It’s amazing! I need to give it more time to see how well it works in terms of preventing pregnancy but those are my initial thoughts. I thought this would the one form of birth control that didn’t have any side effects. But alas it does! Every single night I dream about taking my temperature and then I wake up in the middle of the night scared that I missed the opportunity to take my temperature. 😫😂 it’s pretty funny. that’s the only thing I would say for me but Im sure my body will stop obsessing over that and will adjust soon.
  • Makes you pay before you even get to look around the app

    By 00Mac.
    I opened the app, I was going to look around and then get the subscription, but the first thing that popped up was the subscription screen. So I clicked the free trial and then the thermometer question popped up and I said “well I’m probably going to get it” so I got the year subscription. I paid that and on the next screen were the birth control questions. I am still on another form of birth control, and I didn’t realize the app was only a “demo version” if you were still on it. This is probably a great form of birth control but I didn’t even get to look around to see if I wanted to try it before it made me pay. And now after the terribly unpleasant experices I’ve had with their customer service I don’t even want to try. But guess what? They say they can’t refund my money and apple won’t either so even though I cancelled my subscription I just lost that $80+tax. No one has been helpful in this process whatsoever. After contacting customer support, I solely got lectured about how I should have known I was making a payment. Which I did know, what I didn’t know is immediately after I paid I would answer the birth control questions and have my $80 payment give me access to only a demo version. Highly unsatisfied and disappointed.
  • Great app, worth the price

    I love Natural Cycles! It’s a great NFP app that keeps me in tune with my body. It’s easy to get into the habit of measuring every day. I actually got pregnant the first month of using it!
  • HONEST REVIEW - Knowledge is Power

    4
    By Makela P.
    This app has really helped me gain knowledge in my cycle and I couldn't be more grateful. 3 months ago I broke-up with birth control and Natural Cycles has made this transition so much easier. One thing I wish it also tracked was symptoms throughout your cycle. There is a notes section but would be nice to have a simpler way to track.
  • 40 and Pregnant

    5
    By Nickerbokor
    I’m 40 and me and I my husband were worried it wasn’t going to happen for us but 6 months of natural cycles and 6 weeks pregnant. Really told me when I was ovulating so o didn’t miss any magic days.
  • Great option

    By lenna225
    I love the fact that this product tracks your periods, prevents or helps plan pregnancy all in one!
  • Frustrated

    1
    By Dontchargemewithoutconsent
    I downloaded this app on a free trial and it charged me $23.00. I tried deleting the app immediately and it still charged me. I am not happy.
  • Missing some features to use exclusively

    3
    By aprilnicole97
    Overall ok app, but I would use this app exclusively and continue to pay for it if it included some additional features. Took advantage of the 3 mos for $24.99 to get a free basal thermometer and play with the app, but will cancel after that. Why is there no ability to track cervical fluid? Whether you are trying to conceive or avoid it, that is an important factor in recognizing your fertile window, much much more so than BMT alone. Other free apps allow for this tracking.
  • Science Wins

    5
    By WasatchFront
    My husband highly favors science based methodology. While he was apprehensive at first in trying this method of birth control, it was helpful to dive into research, hear about Natural Cycles on NPR, and medical journals. That’s great because there is no way I am using an copper IUD again or putting hormones into my body. It is different than putting info into my iPhone calendar or picking a free app. What a great mission the Natural Cycles couple is accomplishing.
  • Modern take on old school birth control!

    5
    By Lucky7DogRescue
    At the beginning of last year, I was listening to a Podcast where the women were talking about different birth control methods. One woman mentioned that she uses a calendar- the old fashioned way! I have been on birth control for 7 years without taking a break. In September, I was married and after talking to some friends about Natural Cycles they purchased it for me as a wedding gift! I eased my way into things and wanted to just practice taking my temperature every morning before I did anything else. And it was so simple! Every night before bed, I place my thermometer on top of my phone and I haven’t missed a day! This will be my first month off “the pill” and I am so excited to use Natural Cycles for real. The app is so user friendly and informative. I really feel like I’m taking control of my body and love being able to understand my biology more. Thank you Natural Cycles for revamping “the old fashioned way” and advocating for women to learn more about their cycle.
