Lori's Kindara Story
Kindara most definitely changed my life for the better. I had been on and off hormonal birth control (the pill) for several years when I discovered the FAM. Once I decided to give it a try, I needed a way to keep track of everything, which is where Kindara comes in. I looked at multiple fertility apps and knew right away that this was the best...very simple, easy to use and nice to look at. Plus, the online community was super helpful. It's because of FAM and Kindara that I was able to successfully avoid pregnancy for several months without the many negative side effects I experienced with HBC. (Nausea, acne, mood swings, headaches, low sex drive and on and on). I was finally able to have sex with my husband without physical pain (the biggest effect from the pill). It literally helped my marriage. Then several months later, my husband and I used FAM and Kindara to get pregnant in the first month trying. I know this is because I knew my body and cycles so well, thanks to this app. We now have a beautiful 5 month old daughter.
Alese's Kindara Story
I had been on birth control (the pill) for almost ten years when I heard about Kindara. A close friend of mine told me about it after she decided to get off her birth control. I've always placed value in nature and doing things naturally in my life. From food, to appearance, and even what I look for in relationships with those around me. Natural is always key. Yet I've always known that I didn't want to have children, from a young age actually. Luckily I found a partner who has the same views about children as I do (and we've been together for almost 8 years!) So birth control seemed like a no brainer. Although throughout my late twenties I noticed I wasn't feeling my best. I was moodier than usual and my pms symptoms increased. That's when my friend told me about Kindara and I knew I had to try it out. I went and bought a BBT thermometer and tossed out my birth control pills. I was floored with how much better I felt after just one cycle. I also was having fun learning that my body tells me exactly what I need to know! I just wasn't looking before. It's been a great journey learning my cycle and tracking my symptoms, I tell all my girlfriends about Kindara and how they should try it out. I now feel so much more in control versus when I was taking the pill. I'll use Kindara forever!
Emily's Kindara Story
Kindara has been more than just an app for me. I used its charting function only for 1.5 years before my husband and I decided to switch over to the "trying to conceive" side. I was so nervous because I have no friends who are pregnant. It took us 7 months to make our little babe. Kindara tracking definitely helped us to get the medical help we needed to conceive, but the most amazing and surprising help Kindara provided was a community of incredible, encouraging, genuinely hilarious women. I keep in touch with so many of the women I have met on Kindara through several media platforms, and feel so much more confident marching into motherhood with them by my side. Thank you, Kindara!
