I follow taking charge of your fertility rules, track using Kindara app. I love no hormonal side effects, found it easy to detect ovulation and I’m enjoying learning about how my body works. We use condoms when I’m fertile which is around a week per cycle which has been totally fine and much better than I expected (having been on the pill for years!)
Great that there is no side effects BUT, the app wasn’t able to detect ovulation for me because the difference between my follicular (pre ovulation) and luteal (post) is only slight. Following another FAM method where I chart myself I can clearly see ovulation and it fits within rules of other FAM methods but natural cycles just seems inflexible and doesn’t recognise it, therefore I only got a few green days whilst on my period. Perhaps if j persisted it would get better but I found using a charting method of FAM (I use Taking Charge of Your Fertility rules and use the app Kindara) much more effective!
I have only been taking noriday for 6 weeks, but it has been positive so far. I had one period at the start, no heavier/longer than my normal period, and haven’t had one since. It is too early to say whether I will have periods or not. I’ve had no spotting or irregular bleeding yet. I swapped from the combined pill to this because the combined pill killed my sex drive. I have noticed that my sex drive is now back to no-pill natural state. I can’t say anything bad about this pill at the moment!
