Coronation Street’s Lucy Fallon ‘mum shamed’ and warned to ‘be careful’ over new contraception choice | The SunMarch 7, 2023
CORONATION Street star Lucy Fallon has been mum-shamed and warned by followers after promoting a new app as a form of contraception.
The actress gave birth to baby boy Sonny five weeks ago, and has since been making the most of life as a new mum.
However, in a new paid sponsorship post, she's said she's using the Natural Cycles contraceptive app to "prevent pregnancy naturally" as she tries to forgo medical interventions like the Pill or the Coil.
Sharing a new photo of her holding up her beautiful little boy, Lucy wrote: "Since having Sonny, I have been a lot more conscious of what I am putting into my body and how in control I am over the choices I make.
"Being pregnant for the first time, giving birth, and caring for our amazing little boy has also made me want to reconnect with myself and understand all the changes my body is going through."
"So as part of my postpartum journey, I have started to use the @naturalcycles contraceptive app, not only to be able to prevent pregnancy naturally without having to worry but also to be able to track & learn the patterns of my cycle and know when my body starts ovulating again," she said.

"I have learned so much about my own body already and feel so grateful that I have found something so simple to use, that has fit into my newly hectic life perfectly. Birth control is so personal and completely different for each individual person, so finding something that has worked for me after years of feeling overwhelmed by it all is amazing."
Lucy then added information about the app including it being "FDA cleared" as a contraceptive app, which uses body temperature and other indicators to determine your fertility.
The company add that when used properly the app is 93% effective.
However, fans aren't so sure it's wise for the new mum, and have spoken out against her decision to use the app as her new contraception, citing new mums can oftentimes be more fertile in the weeks after giving birth.

"My children are 12 months apart. Be careful. You are super fertile right now. Exclusive breastfeeding is not birth control. Congrats!!!" one wrote.
"Be careful just because your[e] not [ovulating] does not mean you won’t get pregnant," said a second. "You have your best chance at getting pregnant when you are but there are many myths on the internet like a woman can’t get pregnant when on her period this is just not true very unlikely but can still happen."
"Be careful I know a few people who have got pregnant using this app!" said a third, with several others claiming the same thing.
Despite only giving birth a month ago, Lucy is already back at work and has been showing off her exercises at the gym.
