Sympto allows you to track your fertility with the most widely used and effective natural family planning method available. Temperature method or billings method can be used optionally. This all-natural method is easy, free, scientifically proven, and can be used to achieve or avoid pregnancy.
Sympto calculates your fertility using the "symptothermal" method, which means your basal body temperature (on some days indicated by sympto)is combined with cervical fluid observations (plus optional internal cervical observations) in a cross-checking way to accurately determine the fertile and infertile portions of your cycle. A full user manual explains all these terms in much more detail on www.sympto.org.
*Special functions built in for pregnancy, breastfeeding (without pill!), and peri-menopause.
*"Pilot Mode" option guides you through your first cycle with instructions at every step, and can be turned off when you are ready to use sympto without it as an expert.
*Enter past cycles as far back as January 2000.
*Easy to use icons with detailed explanations to help you select the right option for each day.
Note: When used correctly, the symptothermal method has been proven 99,4 PI effective in accurately predicting fertility and avoiding pregnancy for those who wish to do so. Incorrect or incomplete use may lower the effectiveness of this method.

Can I try sympto while still taking contraceptive hormones?
Another question: Why doesn't sympto indicate "infertile" under the pill/hormone taking? sympto can determine the infertile and fertile phase only if it detects an ovulation. With the contraceptive pill or artificial hormones, sympto will indicate you almost always "blue fertile". Why? There is practically no ovulation any more. At the same time you know that sympto cannot be made responsible for an unwanted pregnancy that had occurred under the pill or because of having forgotten the pill. Our question we asking you: What is the benefit to observe a cycle that has been mutilated by artificial hormones? Certanily, from a scientific point of view, it could be interesting to find out how many ovulations occur under hormones. But this may be rather frustrating! With sympto, you observe your own natural cycle. As soon as you have recovered the confidence in your body and in your partner you can stop the damageing hormones.

French-english app, the videos are subtitled! !! The ultimate app to get comfortable with your fertility and to get th e key to manage it ^^… love it
Can't get it to load at all. Great concept though...
Why is this a mobile app?
Too slow, gets stuck. Uninstalled
Videos only and one was in French. Uninstalling.
Is not free, just for 15days, you gotta open an account...Is not in English.
Just downloaded this to my HTC Incredible and got 4 videos and a web link. Checked that out and tried to download the app from the webpage, no go.
This is just a few videos and a link to a web site. Palm had a nice free app. This its different.
Took a while to load but worth the wait!! Ive been charting everyday for 2 yrs, and this is great for married couples practicing NFP.
I am expected to pay to continue putting in observations?! That is ridiculous!
