Founded in 2013 by Dr. Elina Berglund Scherwitzl and Dr. Raoul Scherwitzl, Natural Cycles is a leading women’s digital health company that developed the world’s first birth control app.

As a medical device, the NC° app is cleared by the FDA in the United States and certified to be used as a contraceptive in the UK, Canada, Australia, Singapore, and South Korea.

The NC° app is powered by an algorithm and artificial intelligence that use body temperature to determine each user’s daily fertility status.

Users can manually take their body temperature with a thermometer or sync overnight temperature trend data from an Oura Ring or Apple Watch when they wake up.
