Daysy does not equate contraception! We help you to determine exactly WHEN you have to use contraception.

Stopping birth control

Choose the all-natural fertility management solution Daysy

Getting off birth control can be tough, especially if you are affected by post-Pill-syndrome. Using the fertility tracker Daysy can help with the transition after stopping birth control and switching to hormone-free contraception.

Hormonal birth control has been prescribed to so many women as the standard solution to all kinds of problems with the female body. Acne, cramps, migraines and pre-menstrual syndrome are only some of the conditions that have often been treated with the synthetic hormones in hormonal birth control, and often these patients were very young women and teenagers. Once women go off birth control, often to try and have a baby after years of hormonal birth control, many find out that their conditions were not treated, but only suppressed, and are back in full scale now that their cycle is no longer regulated by synthetic hormones. Think of hormonal birth control as an alternative engine your body was running on, and by stopping birth control you are putting your own engine – your natural hormones – back in charge. It can take some time for your body to adapt to the new situation that getting off birth control puts it in. But the good news is that now, with no synthetic hormones blocking your sight, you can take on whatever was not going smoothly in your cycle and treat yourself for real this time.

Getting your real period back after stopping birth control

Many women find that when going off birth control, their period takes a while to return to a regular cycle, or is not coming altogether. The reason why you are not getting your period is because in reality, you haven't been getting it during all this time you were on hormonal birth control. Pill bleeds are not real period bleeds, they are merely medically induced bleeds to eject the build-up of uterine lining. The only reason this shedding of uterine lining, that is often mistakenly as period blood, comes in cycles of 28 days is to simulate to women the kind of rhythm they would have if they were not on the pill: Bleeding once a month lets women know they are not pregnant and that their birth control is working. It might take your body some time to figure out again how to be healthy and have a regular period on its own.

Switching to all-natural fertility management with Daysy

Finding out what your body needs after getting off birth control can be challenging, especially after years of physical symptoms hiding behind hormonal birth control. The fertility computer Daysy is your ideal assistant for this scenario. By taking your daily temperature, Daysy records your temperature curve, allowing you to determine whether you are ovulating. You can also share these data with your doctor using the free app DaysyView. With your temperature curve data, you are providing your doctor with valuable information to use in the search for the right treatment for you. Many women use natural family planning methods to track their bodily signs, helping them to spot irregularities and treat underlying conditions as quickly as possible.

Go off hormonal birth control and go on with Daysy

Once you stop hormonal birth control, you will never want to use it again. And you won't have to! After only a couple of months Daysy knows your cycle and can predict your fertile and infertile days with an accuracy of 99,4%, even if your cycle is irregular. With Daysy, you will know when you require additional barrier methods such as condoms or diaphragms during sex to avoid a pregnancy, and when is the best time to try and conceive.

While it is possible to do the natural family planning method manually by feeling your cervix, taking your temperature and keeping charts of other physical signs, it can be time-consuming and challenging. Using Daysy is simple, quick and even fun. Using Daysy will increase your body awareness and will help you through the transition of going off birth control and going hormone-free.
