Thank you for your interest in the Freyja Study.

We are a group of researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Medicine and the University of Plymouth conducting an independent study about the role of ‘Natural Cycles’ in planning pregnancy.

We are inviting up to 25 Natural Cycles users to take part in a one-to-one, 60-minute interview on Skype about their views and experiences. To be eligible to take part, you need to:

  • be aged between 18 and 44
  • have some experience of using Natural Cycles in ‘plan a pregnancy’ mode (now or previously)
  • currently be living in the UK

We also plan to interview a small number of partners of Natural Cycles users (we will be interviewing Natural Cycles users and partners separately).

Any information you share with us will remain anonymous and confidential, and we will give interview participants a £40 gift voucher to say thank you.

To read more about what your participation would involve, please read the Information for Participants here.

If you are interested in participating in an interview, please answer this short series of questions about yourself, your (main) partner if you have one, your use of Natural Cycles*, pregnancy and parenting. These questions will help us to work out if you are eligible to take part in the study, and to make sure that we talk to a diverse range of Natural Cycles users.

Any information you share with us will remain strictly confidential and you do not have to share any information you do not wish to (most questions have a ‘prefer not to say’ option). If you do not go on to participate in an interview, the information you provide here will be deleted. If you do participate in an interview, this information will be included in the study if you later agree to this.

*The questions here are aimed at Natural Cycles users. If you are the partner of a Natural Cycles user and you are interested in participating in this study, please click here.

If you have any questions before completing these questions, please contact the research team: nerissa.tilouche@lshtm.ac.uk.
