On my journey to chemical free living my pill has been one of the last things I’ve said goodbye to. It just dawned on me one day that I’d spent 7 years putting something in my system without actually knowing what it was or what it was doing. It was just convenient.
So at the start of this year I switched to Natural Cycles in a bid to finally get to know my own body and learn what normal is for me. It seemed like the scariest thing at first, and it did take a few weeks for me to stop waking up in panic because I hadn’t taken my pill, but 4 months in, it has been a breath of fresh air in terms of understanding my own body and cycle. I am so glad to now see so many influencers talking and educating other women on these choices, because we always have options & we all have the right to be better informed.
Of course no one answer suits everyone, and obviously this is not a substitute for safe sex, and you still have to be responsible and have a routine so that the app can give the most accurate data, but if you are looking for a fresh, hormone free alternative then this handy little thermometer is certainly worth a look. Check back in a few months and I’ll make sure to do an update 1 year in.
