This App Is Helping Women Ditch Traditional Birth Control

The lack of research done on female health, particularly reproductive health, is the reason that the pill is still considered the best option (maybe the only option) when it comes to pregnancy planning, up until now.

Understanding this gender health gap is what led CERN scientist Dr. Elina Berglund to create Natural Cycles with her physicist husband Dr. Raoul Scherwitzl. The idea was to empower women by giving them control over their reproductive cycle. This is the only FDA cleared app that helps women plan their pregnancy based on menstrual cycle information and body temperature without the use of any external hormones.
