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. 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.* 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

  • Must Have!

    By artarter
    This is essential. Best period tracker I’ve ever used.
  • Great

    By aeb09f
    I love this app, makes it easy for natural cycle tracking. Was on birth control and an IUD and got so tired of all the various side effects. This way is far more information as well. I would only recommend this for those with a regular routine though-consistency is key.
  • I know my body

    By Simranrealness
    I love this app and it’s simplicity. It is the first app that is able to pinpoint the start of my period and even my ovulation when I commit to measuring daily so I know the days that are “safe” to be a big lax on protection. This is a great method as me and my partner are monogamous and he really dosen’t like using condoms all that much. But I know when I have red days those are the most important to use. Definitely use the LH test strips as they make a world of a difference in determining your ovulation dates. Love this app and look forward to continuing to use it!
  • Easier than I expected!

    By jenbunnyyy
    I’m 27 and in a relationship with a cis man. I’ve tried the pill, which made me feel crazy (and the idea of taking synthetic hormones long-term yucked me out). Several years ago I got the copper IUD - I liked that it was hormone free and that I didn’t need to remember anything daily. But my period pain has gotten worse & worse, and I’m wanting to take it out. I decided to try this method because it’s one of my only hormone-free options besides barriers. I was worried about remembering to enter my temp at the right time every day, but the algorithm has impressed me. I’ve gotten better at remembering to measure, but I’m still not perfect. And yet the algorithm has narrowed it down to one week of potentially-fertile days. I haven’t verified with LH tests, but I plan to soon. So far, I’m very happy with Natural Cycles and, of my ovulation tests match the results in the app, I’m going to take out my IUD and be allllll natural :)
  • This Algorithm works great for me!

    By MCM619
    As a young Catholic mom, I was so excited when I came across this app. It is simple to use and understand. I have learned more about my cycle. I am currently using it to avoid pregnancy. I have used it for 9 months and it has served it’s purpose. It is great to be able to understand your body and not have to use synthetic hormones.
  • Amazing

    By seriouslygettheapp
    This app is so simple and easy to use. I’ve been off birth control for about 6 weeks now and this app is helping me understand what’s going on in my body just by taking my temperature every morning. Highly recommended.
  • Thermometer DOES not sync with app

    By HannahGrace5
    I bought this annual subscription and received a basal thermometer which does NOT sync with the app. Instead, one has to manually enter the temperature into the app! I thought I was investing in technology here!👎
  • Fianally something besides the pill!

    By Paris Campbell
    I stopped taking hormonal birth control and switched to Natural Cycles 2 months ago. I was always experiencing miserable side effects on the pill and I tried so many different ones, it really sucked. Natural Cycles has been great and it’s helped me learn more about my body.
  • Yes!!

    By kaileyclutter
    I love using Natural Cycles! It’s so empowering to know what my body is up to and when. I love how easy the app is to use!
  • Useful, easy, trustworthy

    By sydhadassah
