Natural Cycles can be used by any individual over the age of 18 as birth control and in support of conception while learning more about their health. The use of Natural Cycles does not depend on gender identity; however, it's important to understand female reproductive health's physiology to ensure all users get the most out of our product.
Natural Cycles measures biomarkers of hormones: basal body temperature is used to quantify progesterone levels during the cycle, which is linked to the fertile window's prediction. Therefore, having a menstrual cycle enables the algorithm to tune into your reproductive physiology. Natural Cycles may not be right for you if you are currently taking hormonal birth control or undergoing hormonal treatment that inhibits ovulation. Natural Cycles will mainly provide red days if you do not ovulate. You can explore the app in Demo Mode until you discontinue your hormonal birth control or treatment.
All in all, if you are interested in empowering yourself with the knowledge to take charge of your health, then Natural Cycles is for you! We simply want to clarify how more technical features of the birth control and plan a pregnancy function work to ensure user satisfaction without discrimination.
