Discover the data behind the first and only birth control app. Our mission is to pioneer women’s health with research and passion, read on to find out how we make it happen with the science behind our birth control effectiveness.
Natural Cycles is 93% effective with typical use and 98% effective with perfect use. Our birth control effectiveness comes from an analysis of over 15,000 women. The study looked at all possible reasons women become pregnant when using Natural Cycles. This includes having unprotected sex on a red day, to the app wrongly giving a green day, to a condom breaking.
