According to the NHS one in seven couples have difficulty conceiving which is approximately 3.5 million people in the UK alone. Personally I was quite shocked by that statistic. There are many potential causes of infertility and also many theories which can make it frustrating for the couples involved.
What is the Natural Cycles App?
Natural Cycles is a hormone free fertility app invented by Swedish husband and wife team Dr Raoul Scherwitzl and Dr Elina Berglund. The app so far has helped over 5,000 Swedish woman conceive within less than three months on average. The app has now launched in the UK.
Dr Elina Berglund began working on the app after she wanted to give her body a break from the pill but couldn’t find any good forms of natural birth control. She decided to create an algorithm for herself.
How the App Works?
The natural cycles app works by identifying a woman’s ovulation and fertile window by tracking her period and temperature. Every morning the woman needs to record her temperature under her tongue and log it into the app. The app then uses a unique algorithm to determine whether she is fertile on that day.
“Natural Cycles depends on its algorithm. We’ve called the algorithm Alba (after our daughter) and it’s unique because it collected data from hundreds of thousands of cycles. This means we can adapt to each individual woman’s body and, with a high degree of precision and accuracy, determine when she is ovulating.” Dr Elina Berglund.

I’d love to know what you have experienced when it comes to contraception and what you think about the app? Would you use it?
