If you’ve been using NC° Birth Control and feel like now is the time to plan a pregnancy, the good news is that Natural Cycles can seamlessly accompany you on this new chapter of your life.
Because Natural Cycles’ algorithm identifies your fertile window, you can easily switch from NC° Birth Control to NC° Plan pregnancy at any time.
Some important things to note before switching your account from NC° Birth Control to NC° Plan Pregnancy:
- Changing modes in the app may affect the algorithm. So if you switch between modes, keep in mind that some data might look a bit different than it did before.
- It is important that you always have the goal that best suits you, as the experience in the app is tailored to give you detailed messages and information based on your goal. For example, if you switch to NC° Plan pregnancy, the app will now try to help you get pregnant, so your daily fertility status and app messages will reflect this.
- The algorithm in NC° Plan Pregnancy is slightly different from the algorithm in NC° Birth Control. When planning a pregnancy, the algorithm is not as cautious when calculating your fertile and non-fertile days to optimize pregnancy chances.
If you’re certain you want to switch from NC° Birth Control to NC° Plan Pregnancy, you can make this change in the app by tapping on the menu in the top left corner of the screen, then selecting “Settings” > “Mode” > NC° Plan Pregnancy.
Once you make the switch, you will notice that the colors in the app are different in NC° Plan Pregnancy.
While your non-fertile days will still show in green, the fertile window is presented in a scale of red colors, where the most fertile day has the darkest shade of red, and the lightest red color indicates ‘fertility unlikely.’

Does my subscription cost change if I switch from NC° Birth Control to NC° Plan Pregnancy?
Your subscription itself will not change if you switch modes – your renewal will be on the same date as usual, for the same price.
Additionally, you will not need to buy any extra kits, but based on your preferences, you may decide to buy LH tests (which help in narrowing down ovulation, learn more here) or pregnancy tests. Both can be purchased directly in the app (top menu > buy extra supplies) or on our webshop.
Will NC°Plan Pregnancy use my previous data to predict my cycle and ovulation window, or will it require me to start over again?
If you have been using the app for some time, the data you have previously added will be used for this new mode to optimize your experience (such as average ovulation day or cycle length).
