Don't miss our next webinar for anyone interested in health and fertility!
We will interview expert, Dr. Mary Lee Barron, on how fertility health is a marker for overall health in both men and women. As part of the discussion Dr. Barron will talk about her research and how it shines light on questions such as . . .
- Do men's biological clocks affect their fertility too?
- What does your BMI (body mass index) have to do with your fertility?
- What is your body telling you, if you have irregular cycles?
We are excited to discuss these and other questions with Dr. Barron. REGISTER HERE!
We love CycleBeads, but for women who prefer an individualized approach to identifying their fertile days, Cycle Technologies has launched the 2Day family planning app, the first and only iPhone app based on the TwoDay Method® of family planning.
This patent pending app is designed to help a woman track the only information that is really critical to knowing if she is on a day when pregnancy is possible or not:
1) Did I observe secretions today?
2) Did I observe secretions yesterday?
If the answer to either of these questions is "YES", then a woman should consider herself fertile. It's that simple.

We believe women should have access to a full range of contraceptive options including natural ones. Natural family planning methods are often misunderstood or overlooked even by the medical community. But women, and especially educated women, are using them because modern fertility awareness-based methods of family planning are effective, free of side effects and they can be used both to plan and prevent pregnancies.
We are thrilled to announce the new Lite version of the iCycleBeads app for iOS devices! This free app is similar to the complete version of iCycleBeads in that you can effectively plan or prevent pregnancy just by tracking your period! It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the full version, but it does give you the information you need. We think everyone in the world should have the opportunity to test this family planning method out and see if it's right for them. Try it out and let us know what you think!
Cycle Technologies, the company that makes CycleBeads, has a new website. We love it! Check it out at www.CycleTechnologies.com.

Register for this Introductory CycleBeads Training for health providers on Tuesday, May 6th. This will be the last training session specifically on this family planning method for Spring 2014. Stay tuned for upcoming educational webinars and activities on other topics in the next couple of months as part of the CT EduSeries!
Cycle Technologies is introducing a new educational series for health providers. This series is intended to help health professionals offer a full range of contraceptive options that include effective fertility awareness-based methods. Specifically, these educational sessions will focus on simple natural birth control methods such as CycleBeads, which can be offered by health providers in a regular professional setting.
The series includes webinars with health experts, customized virtual trainings for health clinics, on-site trainings in the DC metro area, and live trainings at the Cycle Technologies offices in Washington, DC.
On Minnesota Public Radio recently, experts from the Institute for Reproductive Health (IRH) at Georgetown University, and the Guttmacher Institute discussed the state of birth control in the U.S. IRH did a great job of outlining their top 5 takeaways from the discussion on their blog.
The takeaways include...
"After using other methods of birth control, my husband and I decided to try CycleBeads. They are easy to use and have worked wonderfully for us. We have a nice family of three, including our Black Lab, Sadie (shown in photo with me), and we want to keep it that way for now! I recommend this natural, safe and reliable way to anyone who wants to avoid toxic substances while sharing the responsibility of birth control with her partner."
