Experience

I enjoyed using this method of contraceptive, but the algorithm is very reliant on the person's routine as you couldn't record accurate results if you had less or more sleep than usual, were ill or had been drinking the previous night. I felt this method ultimately helped me understand my menstrual cycle better and what effect it has on my body, but as a contraceptive I felt I couldn't completely trust it if I had missed a few recordings and would use a condom to be safe on some occasions.

Experience after taking

As the Natural Cycles contraception doesn't involve any chemical changes to my body, it continued in its usual menstrual cycle and there was no change or discomfort to my body after I'd stopped using it.
