A goal we have at The Agenda. is to not only bring a great tool to you through our product, but to bring awareness to other awesome tools in the period empowerment space, like this tool from Natural Cycles.
A question that comes up a lot is “What are my options around family planning?” Birth control and similar categories of hormonal products have done tremendous things for women, and there is more research coming out questioning its effects on our bodies.
So what do you do if you want to release the pill but are not ready to start a family? You start tracking your temperature.
Natural Cycles is both a thermometer and an app. FSA/HSA covers this with insurance. This product aims to help you take control by tracking your temperature each morning because your temperature will rise when you ovulate. With a 93% effectiveness rate this is a great tool, especially in our post-Roe. v. Wade world. They follow GDPR regulations and are a subscription-based service, which means they will never sell your information for money. Pretty cool right?!

You can buy a basal thermometer through them, or buy one at the store, and register for the app. If you buy a year-long subscription they will send you a thermometer. A basal thermometer is different than a regular one as it has two decimal points. Throughout your cycle your temperature shifts, but it is very subtle. This is why it’s vital to take your temperature before you sit up and go about your day. Find out more at their website: https://www.naturalcycles.com/
