Can I use Natural Cycles with my endometriosis?
If you're not on any hormonal treatment for your endometriosis, Natural Cycles will work as normal. You can always track your cycles and symptoms with Natural Cycles. You can read more about endometriosis in our blog post here.
Here is a quick checklist on what to think of if you know you have endometriosis and want to start with Natural Cycles:
- If you have bleedings in between your period, enter these as "spotting" and not "period," as the menstruation bleeding starts a new cycle.
- If you use pain medication during your experienced symptoms, you will be okay as long as you have had a full night's sleep since you took your last pill.
- If you use pain medication in the middle of the night at any time, mark the temperature as 'excluded' the following morning, as the pain medication might affect your basal body temperature. If you are unsure whether your medication may affect your temperatures, we encourage you to reach out to your healthcare professional.
