Great work is highlighted in the video "A Healthy Investment: Linking Family Planning and Microfinance" which looks at how a collaborative project in India is working to improve women's access to family planning by working with community health workers. CycleBeads® is included in the full range of family planning options that these health workers proactively discuss with women in their communities. The educators can then either give women their family planning choice or direct them to the appropriate health care facility. The video was produced by FHI 360's PROGRESS Project in partnership with the Network of Entrepreneurship and Economic Development (NEED).

"I was introduced to CycleBeads by a friend who was using them as her form of birth control. My husband and I were trying to conceive, and she suggested we try using the CycleBeads to help track my cycle. After two months of using the beads...success! I kept them next to my bed, so it was easy for me to remember to track each day. I plan to use CycleBeads after I deliver as my form of birth control. I have struggled with migraines for years due to the hormones in the pill, and do not want to go back to that life! I also recommend CycleBeads to any of my friends trying to conceive or looking for alternative birth control."
