At long last, a Bluetooth integrated thermometer and app combination for cycle mapping that's here to stay! Natural Cycles is the first app of it’s kind to be FDA cleared in the US for use as a medical device. In fact, they’ve been available as a contraceptive in the U.S. since 2018 when the US FDA Cleared it as a digital birth control method.
Natural Cycles offers us a digital fertility awareness-based method that predicts* daily fertility for either planning pregnancy or for use as birth control. It's 93% effective with typical use, 98% effective with perfect use. How do you achieve perfect use? Learn FAM!
Paired with literacy of the Sympto-thermal Double-Check Method, a highly effective Fertility Awareness-based Method (FAM), you can achieve the highest birth control effectiveness rate. Learning the practice involves mastering proper technique for recognizing your daily cervical fluid signs and taking your Basal Body Temperature (BBT), info you'll input into the app for easy tracking of patterns and shifts. In addition to technique, you'll learn to recognize what's happening (shifting) with your hormones, to embrace the ebbs and flows of your body, working WITH your body; no longer against it.
