Natural Cycles App

(74)

Fertility awareness methods (FAM)

The Natural Cycles app is a mobile application classified in the EU and by the FDA as a medical device for contraception. Technically it is a fertility awareness method. The app contains an algorithm that analyses your temperature (measured using a thermometer) and menstrual cycle data to calculate when you are fertile, and tells you to avoid sex or use other protection like condoms on your fertile days. Unlike other fertility awareness methods it tries to minimise human error as the algorithm does the calculations and interpretations for you.

What is in the Natural Cycles App?

The Natural Cycles app is a mobile application classified in the EU and FDA-cleared as a medical device for contraception. It's a new form of 'digital contraception' that stems from the symptothermal method. You record your temperature daily and log it into the app using either a basal thermometer (that you can get from Natural Cycles),or insights from an Oura Ring smart ring which records health insights like your temperature heart rate and sleep quality.
