Experience

On paper the natural cycles app is a fantastic solution to hormonal free contraception which is what I was looking to try. After a couple of months I was getting used to the routine of it and enjoying it. But ultimately I fell pregnant on one of my ‘green days’ and this sadly resulted in a termination. After I went through this, I read a couple of articles denouncing the app for promoting itself as a form of contraception because this kind of family planning is designed for women who are trying to conceive. I wish I had read this before starting the app. Besides the pregnancy, it is highly demanding to maintain and there are several challenging factors – so if you don’t have a militant daily routine you will struggle with natural cycles. The best thing about it is having control and knowledge on your cycle but I would recommend the period tracking app Clue for that. Would not advocate natural cycles as a contraception ever. Avoid.
