We’re excited about the latest feature we released in the Natural Cycles app: Reminders.
You can now set the following reminders, to keep you on track with measuring and to get the very most out of your journey as a Cycler. Yay!
To activate Reminders:
1. Go to your phone settings
2. Turn on and allow Natural Cycles to send you push notifications (this is very important as reminders will not work otherwise)
3. Go into the Natural Cycles app and press the ‘Alarmbell icon’ in the top left hand corner. The icon always indicates whether your reminders are switched on or off.
4. Select the ‘Reminders’ you wish to receive. You can change these settings at any time as needed.
Reminders to measure
Getting into measuring your temperature every morning might take a little while so we wanted to make things even easier. Set a reminder for ‘the night before’ or ‘in the morning so you don’t forget. Another little tip is to place the thermometer next to or on top of your phone before going to bed.
With these little reminders, measuring becomes second nature quite quickly – just like brushing your teeth in the morning.
First red day
The first day you need to ‘use protection’ is very important. This gives you a little reminder to keep those condoms handy.
Take an LH test
Unlike measuring your temperature, it’s best to take an ovulation (LH) test later on in the day. So we send you a reminder throughout the day, that way you can’t miss it. You can read up on everything you need to know about taking ovulation (LH) tests here.
Knowing exactly when you can expect PMS helps you understand your body better and you can take action that just might help with relieving symptoms. You can also take note of these symptoms in your notes in the ‘Add data’ page we find it helps to compare notes and realise just what works best for you.
Breast self- exam
From the age of 30 and upwards we recommend doing a Breast self-exam on a regular basis. Here’s a great article on how to perform one.
Make sure you have downloaded the latest version of the app to get started with our new ‘Reminders’ feature – enjoy Cyclers and let us know how you like our new addition.
