What is PCOS?
PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) is a common cycle condition, which is thought to be caused by an imbalance of hormones and often leads to anovulatory cycles.

Can I use Natural Cycles with PCOS?
Yes, you can use Natural Cycles if you have PCOS.
Tracking your cycle with Natural Cycles can help you to better understand how PCOS affects your own unique cycle like how long your cycles are, how irregular they can be, and when and if you ovulate each cycle. This can be helpful information to bring to your doctor or fertility clinic when discussing the condition.
There are also no changes to Natural Cycles’ effectiveness if you have PCOS. You may, however, experience an increased number of red days, which can reduce your satisfaction with Natural Cycles. You can still trust the green days that you get (in the Today view).
If you are planning a pregnancy, NC° Plan Pregnancy can help you better understand if and when you ovulate each cycle and it will also predict your fertile window as precisely as it can, based on your data, so that you can plan intercourse accordingly.
