So I’m reading this article on new tech apps and found an app that took me to a read from the FDA (Federal Drug Administration). Get this, there is an app for your phone that has been approved by the FDA, and according the results data it’s better than CONDOMS and even BIRTH CONTROL PILLS! GTFOH! Right? No seriously, the app by Natural Cycles is supposed to prevent pregnancy, touted as a “natural” method of contraception that is powered by a smart algorithm. Okay whatever that means……however App users reported a failure rate of 6.5%! Birth control pills have a 9% failure rate and condoms have an 18% failure rate.
The app is $79.99 annually and comes with the thermometer. To use the app, women take their temperatures each morning using a special thermometer, and the app tracks this specific info to let women know when they are most fertile.
I could see men using and having this app…..LMAO. Umm….Would you use an app for contraception?
