Swedish nuclear physicist Elina Berglund Scherwitzl wanted to develop a method of contraception that did not damage hormonal cycles. She created an alternative called ‘Natural Cycles’ that used a combination of research and advanced math.

This way, a woman would need to use protection or abstain from sexual intercourse during this period alone.
