Experience

I’ve been using the app for 2.5 months, after stopping the combined pill (after 10 years). The app starts with lots of ‘red’ days when you have to use condoms or abstain, but that’s to be expected until the app learns your cycle. We don’t have children but ‘don’t mind’ if it happens. I’m not sure I’d use the app if I really was wanting to be careful: it makes assumptions about when you’re fertile and can only confirm if it was correct after your fertile window is over. The best thing for me is learning about my body: I always just thought I was feeling a bit warmer than usual every now and then. Turns out it’s actually just my post-ovulation half of the month and it happens like clockwork.
