Would you/do you trust the temperature method of birth control? What is your experience?

There is a new app out called Natural Cycles which claims to have a 99.9% success rate for preventing pregnancy (or achieving it if that is the goal), without the use of hormones. All you do is take your temperature first thing in the morning and record it, and the app does a bunch of calculations to give you green "safe" days or red "risky" days. It seems almost too easy and too good to be true... I would like to know what other people think about this and if others have used this method, or know people who do.

    I agree that the rhythm method is unreliable, but that is just trying to predict the cycle based on the past, not physical signs. Apparently they are doing a scientific study on it, but it's not done yet: http://tinyurl.com/mfpqquu
