Below are some of your wonderful stories:
“We used it to plan a pregnancy for a month and I got pregnant on the first try! I really like that it is so easy to measure the temperature and put it in the app. It really suits my lifestyle!”
Sanna 30, Ronneby Sweden
“I was lucky to come across an article about Natural Cycles. I immediately did some research and decided it was for me! Furthermore, I learned so much about myself and the reproductive system that I’m embarrassed to say I knew almost nothing about before. I would like to see and help make this an option for all responsible and interested women. Religious or not, planning or tracking fertility, health concerns, etc. Natural Cycles can be for any woman! :)”
Ann 28, Kungsbacka Sweden
“I’ve used Natural Cycles for almost a year now and both me and my partner feel satisfied beyond all expectations. Through Natural Cycles I’ve learnt so much more about myself and my body, which I find as very valuable knowledge that I wish all women could have access to. For example, I did not know that women are only fertile six days per cycle. Choosing to start with Natural Cycles is one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life, and my advice to you who are considering to start with Natural Cycles is simply that it’s worth it!”
Pauline 22, Lund, Sweden
Fantastic! Please do not hesitate to reach out to us through this form and tell us your story!
Hi! My name is Sandra and I’m 23 years old. I live in the idyllic archipelago of Nynäshamn (Sweden) with my fiancé. I’m a preschool-teacher student at Stockholm University and in June 2016 I will graduate!
I found out about Natural Cycles through a popular blog. Around the same time I heard about Natural Cycles I also started a lifestyle change. I started eating organic food and I felt that Natural Cycles could be a good option for me. Using the app is so simple – all you need to do is take your temperature in the morning. Such an easy habit to form!
Natural Cycles is the right choice for me since my fiancé and I have been together for almost eight years and we’re getting married soon. In couple of years we might want to have a family and, thanks to Natural Cycles I will know my most fertile days. As you might know, you can choose between two plans with Natural Cycles: “Track your fertility”, and “Plan a Pregnancy” which you can quickly change with the press of a button.
Also I love their support. They respond very quickly to questions and concerns. I feel very well treated and that’s important for me as a user. I’ve used Natural Cycles since August 2015 and still love using it. It’s very easy to use and I love getting the notifications in the morning. It feels lovely to track my cycle and get better knowledge about my fertility. I would recommend Natural Cycles to all women!
It’s amazing to read your stories! If you want to share your story please fill in this form and we will get back to you.

This month we talked with My-Annika, a 29-year-old woman from a small town called Fagersta, Sweden.
Tell us more about you and how come you chose to start with Natural Cycles?
“I heard about Natural Cycles from another Cycler and thought it sounded like a brilliant and simple idea that I just had to try. I started 7 months ago, and it was one of the smartest decisions I’ve ever made! After 7 months of measuring, it still feels simple — I wake up, take my temperature, and then put it into the Natural Cycles app. I know we’ll switch to Natural Cycles Plan when we’re ready to try and get pregnant. That way we’ll see when I’m fertile. So I only have positive things to say about Natural Cycles. The only ‘negative’ thing is that I now have my period every month, which I didn’t have before.
Thanks for reading my experience with Natural Cycles!
My name is Tanya, I’m from London and I work as an administrator.
I was on the contraceptive pill for 10 years until I realised I had no idea about my natural cycles. Because I’m getting married next year and starting to think about having children, I’ve decided that being more in-tune and in-control of my body would not only be good for my overall health (the less chemicals the better!) but would also help when we’re trying to get pregnant.
I have been a Cycler for four months now and I’m already hooked! There’s something really empowering about knowing and understanding exactly where I am in my cycle. I feel better in myself, and even my fiancé is enjoying tracking whether it’s a red day or a green day (surprise surprise!).
I have recommended Natural Cycles to my friends because coming off the pill has improved my moods and given me more energy.
I really think Natural Cycles is a solution for women to ditch hormones for something better. The pill was developed in the 1960s, which is now over 50 years ago! It’s time we moved forward from such an archaic school of thought.
Thank you Natural Cycles for giving me back control of my body!
Natural Cycles gives women the skills they need to track and get to know their unique cycles better so that when a woman is ready she can switch from tracking her fertility to planning a pregnancy.
This is what Julia, a 22 year old ‘small town girl’ from Kristinehamn, Sweden is doing. She has recently started using Natural Cycles to prepare her body for next year, where she will switch to NaturalCycles plan mode to try for her first child.
“I’ve been using Natural Cycles for 2 months now. I love the idea of tracking my fertility as I feel like I’m doing my body a favour.”
“My boyfriend and I are planning to get pregnant some time next year and so I wanted to give ourselves the best opportunity to achieve a smooth pregnancy by taking back the control. Only 2 months in and I have already got to know my body better and how it works.”
Fertility is a continuum, which means everyone’s chances are different and many factors can influence your chances at any given time. By understanding where you fall on the continuum and why with the help of fertility trackers, you can take action and seek advice if necessary. It is always better to be informed, so take back the control like Julia did and get to know your cycles!

Nathalie studies Supply Chain Managment in Malmö and got in touch as she wanted to share her story about why she decided to start a more organic approach to life.
“I’ve been on the pill for almost 15 years, which is almost half of my life. Definitely far too long to be taking something that alters your body! Even though I didn’t experience any side-effects when on the pill, it was a thought that really bothered me. This is when it dawned on me – I wanted to find out ‘who I was’ without hormones.
When I started to look for natural alternatives, I came across Natural Cycles , which after a lot of reading and research seemed to be the smartest and safest option for me to try out. It’s now been over 3 months since I started using Natural Cycles and I feel great!
I can’t believe I now actually get excited to use Natural Cycles each morning! I find it fascinating measuring my temperature and finding out where I am in my cycle every day. It is such a great feeling to understand how my body works and get to know myself better.
Natural Cycles has been incredibly accurate at predicting the important events in my cycle. I was expecting a few days variation when it came to my period, but it’s been spot-on from the start!
Eventhough I was pretty happy before, I can definitely say that I feel happier now – pretty cool to think that this was even possible! The natural approach to life is clearly the way to go, which is why I’ve also recently started to use the menstrual cup! “

Frida is 21 and loves to travel – something you might gather from her picture!
She recently moved back to the South of Sweden and is currently working at a health centre. We spoke to Frida a couple of weeks ago and asked her about her birth control journey.
Frida has always felt that taking the contraceptive pill was “wrong”, and that it was prescribed with too little information and guidance.
That’s why Frida says Natural Cycles was the right decision for her – “Natural is definitely the way to go! I’m never going back to anything that changes my body again. I feel so much better now – my period is different, I feel happier and my mood is more balanced. After being on the pill for so long, Natural Cycles has allowed me to get to know my body much better.”
We asked her what her favourite thing about NaturalCycles was:
“It’s super easy and fits perfectly into my morning routine. Every morning the thermometer wakes me up with its beep.” she says laughing.
A piece of advise for future Cyclers:
“Give it a go! You will be positively surprised, and will never want to go back to anything else ever again!”
Thank you so much to Frida for sharing! If anyone else is keen to share their journey with us then please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
We wanted to give our ‘Story of the Month’ a bit of a facelift as we thought it would be more fun for you if we were to add a little more personality, background and culture to each Cycler’s post.
We know that a Cycler is a strong-minded, independent, intelligent woman who loves to be her own person and make her own decisions in life. And because of this we can be sure that your stories will undoubtedly empower and inspire other women to stop asking those ‘What if’s’ in life and instead become a worry-free ‘Yes Woman’!
Not only do we want to you to share your thoughts about contraception but we also want inspiring pictures, ideas and opinions that suddenly come to mind when you think about living life to the full!
To give you an idea, here’s one of my Instagram photos that I took in London, which impels me to travel more of the world.
Up, up and away!
As variety is undoubtedly the spice of life, we thought ‘Meet a Cycler’ would be a nice way to celebrate how wonderfully diverse and unique the NaturalCycles community is. If you agree with us and are keen to get involved then please share your story and pictures with us via email@example.com
