What if I’m sick whilst charting?

“If you’re taking your temp with an oral thermometer, and it seems a little bit too high compared to your average at that time in your cycle, the algorithm will deviate the temp for you.”

What happens if my sleep is disrupted?

“The algorithm in this app will recognise that your temp is a bit too high or a bit too low, and it will deviate it or exclude it automatically.”

What if I don’t see signs I’ve ovulated when TTC?

“The first things first is to track as many things as possible, or as many as you feel comfortable with.

The body temp each day throughout the cycle, is really important and you can use LH tests to track in your fertile window.”

What if I can’t take my temp at the same time every day?

“We advise that you take it around the same time every morning, before you sit up or get up out of bed.

There’s a lovely solution to it now, the Oura Ring which tracks your temperature trends during the night whilst you’re sleeping.”

How accurate is the thermometer & app?

“Natural Cycles is 93% effective with typical use and 98% effective with perfect use.”

Natural Cycles offers a comprehensive and personalized approach to family planning. Leveraging the power of cutting-edge algorithms and fertility tracking, this app allows you to harness the rhythm of your own cycle to make informed decisions about your reproductive health.
