Experience

I used the NC app to figure out my natural cycle after years on the pill and also later on to get pregnant. It did help me figure out that my cycle was much longer than i thought and therefore my fertile window was much later than i thought. It was pretty good at predicting non-fertile days – however it was not super precise when I tried to get pregnant and I had to help it a bit with a couple of ovulation tests to determine the right fertility window. Overall useful if you do want to get pregnant but I am not sure I would rely on it for preventing pregnancy all the time not least because you have to be so good with taking your temperature.

Experience after taking

I stopped using this type of contraception because now I have two children I don’t feel I can accurately take my temperature in the mornings / would forget too often. Also I need sth that feels a little more failsafe at preventing pregnancy now although wouldn’t rule out giving it another shot at some point.
