Nicole Junkermann presents an A-Z of Femtech: C = Contraception

Nicole Junkermann, NJF Capital founder, presents an A-Z of Femtech – a series of short videos focused on specific areas of interest in this hugely important and exciting field.

Around three million women in the UK take a daily contraceptive pill but some suffer from side effects.

Like many areas of women’s health, contraception is now being disrupted by Femtech.

Claiming to be at least 93% effective, Natural Cycles is the first app to be certified as a contraceptive in Europe and the USA.

Digital birth control apps use fertility awareness methods like body temperature to help women track their menstrual cycles. 

By identifying when they’re ovulating, women can avoid sex or use another form of contraception on these fertile days.

Contraceptive apps allow women to monitor their cycle, offering them a viable alternative to hormonal birth control which supports wellbeing.
