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?

App Reviews

  • Great but not for everyone

    By Chnaida
    This app is amazing and I have learned a lot about myself. It is not for everyone though, if you don’t have a tradicional lifestyle in which your routine is pretty consistent (you don’t work night shifts, your sleep patterns are homogeneous, etc.) this app is not for you. I think it is perfect for women that want to have kids eventually and wouldn’t be devastated if they got pregnant using this form of birth control (if you fall under this category I would use a more definite - long term birth control method like IUD).
  • I love this app

    By paris319
    I have 4 stars because it’s still been under a year I’ve been using it. But I love this and it’s helped me learn more about my body and my cycle. I wish the United States considered it a legit form on contraception. But regardless you feel in control when you understand your body and cycle more.
  • Love understanding my body!

    By Psalm139chick
    This app has been a game changer for me and my husband! I have never believed in using hormonal birth control so I needed to find a better solution after having my first baby, so that my body could recover from the postpartum period and I could establish a routine with my family. Natural Cycles was it. My husband loves learning about the luteal and follicular phases, and he already has my rhythms memorized. It feels so empowering, for both of us, to understand what’s happening in my body and to know that women were designed this way! Our bodies are not random or illogical, but rather have very specific patterns which enable us to prevent or plan a pregnancy without fear. I can’t say enough good things about this app. Just thankful to the brilliant developers!!
  • Highly recommended!

    By Jwooooowwwwwwww
    I was on hormonal birth control for 2 years before realizing how dangerous artificial hormones are for your body. I absolutely ❤️ Natural Cycles. Nothing dangerous for your body and no weird side effects that come with hormonal birth control.
  • Works for me!

    By Drew 8.0
    I have had difficulty with any form of prescription birth control with intense side effects. This has given peace of mind.
  • Worth the switch

    By Aleine7
    Through a series of events I chose to take my IUD out two years early with the encouragement of a friend to get on this app. I’m so glad I did! I was charting for awhile but never felt confident enough to not get pregnant. I’m still learning so much from this app about my cycle and my fertility. I hope that eventually I’ll learn enough to be able to feel connected to my body so that I can really understand what’s happening without the app. Not that I want to stop using it but I want to be confident enough to know what’s going on in case I loose my phone or something weird like that happens. I love having this connection with my body. Thank you Natural Cycles for creating something so empowering and helpful!
  • Unplanned pregnancy

    By 1JT88
    I went into this a true believer of the science but got pregnant using the app to the best of my ability, and I did not have unprotected sex on a red day. Despite this I experienced an unplanned pregnancy. I think a major issue that is overlooked is that lives are variable. If you have a big change in jobs, a big change in sleep schedule, etc., you will not be able to perfectly follow the track your temperature on days that are “within 2 hours of your normal sleep.” I believe the protective efficacy stated on their website is misleading. I never once got pregnant using hormonal birth control but within one year of stopping the pill and using this app, I had an unplanned pregnancy. I think this app can be a great tool, but I wonder if their results are very specific to the controlled environment or the type of women (selection bias) included in their study.
  • I am grateful Natural Cycles

    By Msflysalot
    I never took any kind of contraceptives for most of my life and I was heavily recommended to do so because of my overwhelmingly painful periods. I continuously refused until I decided to start having unprotected sex with my husband. We didn't want a baby yet, so I started the pill. The pill messed up everything in my body. I gained lots of weight, became super emotional, my period became very irregular, and it didn't help my cramps. 1. They educate you on how to use this app to its fullest potential and it is very accurate. 2. The customer service is VERY helpful! They sent me complimentary ovulation strips to boost the algorithm to understand my body. 3. I have had the opportunity to use all 3 of their settings. Prevention, pregnancy planning, and pregnancy mode. I have enjoyed both the prevention and planning modes, but in my opinion the pregnancy part of the app is lacking. I feel I will need to download a better app with more day to day information. Thank you very much for this application! I would also appreciate if it were a little less expressive...$80/year is understandable, but there are so many women that could benefit from this and can't afford that much money per year. Even I may have difficulty depending on the year.
  • Love it

    By MrsRohrer
    It’s very helpful and makes me feel more in tune with my body.
  • Love Natural Cycles

    By AllyTPS
    I have spent the last 10 years going off and on different kinds of birth control. I wanted to get off, once and for all due to health reasons. Natural cycles has changed the way I see contraception. An all natural, no estrogen pumping birth control method. Who would’ve thought?! And it actually works!! Natural cycles keeps it all super simple but highly informative and so fun! I love learning about my body and what it’s doing. Thank you Natural Cycles 💕🌺
