Contraceptive app under investigation after 37 women get pregnant
There’s a large variety of contraceptive measures out there meant to prevent unwanted pregnancies. Most of them involve using some sort of accessory to get the job done, be it a condom, a pill, or a device. Others involve science. Studying and understanding the periodicity of the menstrual cycle works if done correctly. None of those is 100% secure, and only the condom happens to also stop the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.
With all in mind, I wouldn’t blame you if you questioned mobile apps that told you they can help you manage your sex life to make sure you don’t get pregnant if you don’t want to. And that goes double now that one such app came under fire in Sweden after 37 women reported unwanted pregnancies after using it. But things are really complicated, and these apps can work for most women.
