Rhythm method apps have become a popular choice for women who want to understand and control their fertility. Some women are now using these apps as an alternative to other forms of contraception, such as birth control pills. However, the rhythm method doesn’t suit everyone and there is no form of contraception that can prevent 100% of pregnancies.
The rhythm method helps you to identify when you should have sex in order to conceive, or when to avoid it if you don’t want to get pregnant.
Birth control pills are one of the most reliable options for contraception, as long as you remember to take the pill every day.
When used correctly, both forms of contraception can be more than 90% reliable, although neither is perfect. The rhythm method could be a good choice for you if you are an organised person who wants to understand her body. Birth control pills could be better if you want a simple, reliable form of contraception that you don’t need to pause to use before sex. However, they might not be a good choice if you find it difficult to take the pill every day or you experience side effects. It is also important to be aware that neither option will protect you against sexually transmitted infections, so you may need to use condoms too.
