Alternative to the pill: contraception without hormones with natural family planning

Hormone-free birth control is often called natural birth control because it is free of side effects. People looking for an alternative to the pill will therefore quickly turn to the natural family planning. In the following paragraphs, we will give you an overview of methods of contraception without hormones, as well as their advantages and disadvantages.

  • The symptothermal method

    With the trackle contraception computer, you protect yourself according to the rules of the symptothermal method. It is considered the safest method for planning familial naturel - trackle makes the app more digital and easier to use and takes away your fear of doing something wrong. In case of so-called perfect use - which means: no vaginal intercourse during the fertile period - it has a Pearl index of 0.4. In the case of protected intercourse, the Pearl index is 0.6. With the sympto-thermal method, you can determine your fertile window very precisely, because you are only fertile around ovulation. The sympto-thermal method assesses two indicators of fertility: Your core body temperature and your cervical mucus. The evaluation is therefore carried out by means of a double check. This is what makes the method so safe. Do not hesitate to inform yourself in more detail about how you protect yourself with trackle.

  • The temperature method

    As the name suggests, the temperature method only assesses your temperature and forgoes the assessment of another fertility indicator like cervical mucus or the position of the cervix. This makes it significantly less secure than the sympto-thermal method which, in addition to your core body temperature, factors another fertility indicator like your cervical mucus into the assessment.

  • The Billings method - also called the cervical mucus method

    Just before ovulation, the consistency of the cervical mucus exchange. This is what the Billings method takes advantage of. With this hormone-free method of birth control, you observe your cervical mucus every day and record it in a chart to see any changes. But here too, as with the temperature method, only one fertility indicator is taken into account in the evaluation, which makes it much less certain than the symptothermal method.

  • The calendar method and coitus interruptus: be careful, it's not safe!

    Let's say it straight away: these two methods are NOT recommended! They are considered unsafe and therefore not suitable for contraceptive purposes.

    The calendar method can determine the approximate time of ovulation, but it is primarily based on 28-day cycles. But each cycle is individual and even regular cycles, which you could set a clock to, sometimes get longer or shorter. Especially when it comes to contraception, you should not rely on the calculation of an approximate window, it can go very wrong!

    In the case coitus interruptus, the responsibility lies with the man: he withdraws his penis from the vagina before ejaculation, so that no sperm can enter it. Even if it were to actually work in time despite the happy highway, there is still the pleasure drop, also called pre-ejaculate. It flows before actual ejaculation and may contain sperm. Most of the time, the man does not notice the ejaculation at all. So here too: It is clearly recommended NOT to use coitus interruptus as a method of contraception!

Fertile and infertile days of the cycle

In natural family planning, everything revolves around l'ovulation, because it is around ovulation that you have your window of fertility. This is the basis of natural contraception: if you know when you are fertile - i.e. you know when you could get pregnant - you also know when you need to use additional contraception, such as a condom or a diaphragm, so as not to get pregnant.
