Women’s reproductive health can be pretty complicated which is why it’s always a good idea to keep track of things. Whether you are trying to conceive or just want to know when your period is coming, there are a number of great period and fertility tracking apps to choose from. One such app is Natural Cycles.
Natural Cycles is a clinically tested hormone-free fertility monitor that predicts and identifies your fertile window. It tracks your period, predicts and finds your ovulation day as well as your fertile days and can provide you with a menstrual and fertility calendar.
Invented by husband and wife team Dr Raoul Scherwitzl and Dr Elina Berglund, the app has already helped over 5,000 Swedish women conceive within less than three months on average – and now it has launched in the UK!
Natural Cycles works by carefully studying your body temperature and menstrual cycle to accurately predict and identify your ovulation day and fertile window.
Your temperature is an indirect measure of your body’s natural hormones and can indicate ovulation. Women are therefore required to record the temperature under the tongue every morning and enter it into the app. Natural Cycles then uses a unique algorithm to determine fertility and returns you a green day if you are unfertile and a red day if you are fertile.
You can also use Natural Cycles to prevent or plan pregnancies. The app is capable of isolating the most fertile days in your cycle and detecting ovulation. You can optionally combine your temperature data with ovulation test results. Natural Cycles even acts as an early pregnancy detector and once pregnant, the app monitors your pregnancy and follows your baby’s development.
Similarly, If you are at the other end of the spectrum and are unable to get pregnant, then insights from your recorded cycles may help you and your doctor understand what the underlying issue could be.
Infertility is a rising problem in today’s society, with around one in seven couples experiencing difficulty conceiving naturally.
Honestly, I’ve never encountered any problems with my fertility – which is something i am truly grateful for – but I have friends who have struggled to conceive and I’ve witnessed first-hand how painful it was for them to try and get pregnant. I wish an app like Natural Cycles would have been available for them during that time because it is proven to significantly improve the chances of natural conception.
So confident are they with their technology, that Natural Cycles is offering women in the UK a full refund if they don’t conceive in the first 9 months of use as well as 50% off a yearly subscription by visiting https://www.naturalcycles.com/en/plan and inputting this code (valid until 31st December): LFMNC
