CycleBeads Do Not Require That a Woman Has a Perfect Regular Cycle

CycleBeads Myth: You must have a “perfect regular” 28 day cycle to use this method.

The Truth: CycleBeads are designed for women with cycles between 26 and 32 days long. This means that women using this method could have cycles that vary by as much as a week in length from one cycle to the next, and still be good candidates for using this method. In developing this family planning method, the researchers first looked at data from the World Health Organization to determine the length of most women’s cycles.  They found that 80% of cycles are in this 26-32 day range. So, you don’t have to have a “perfect 28 day cycle”. You just have to have a cycle that is in the 26-32 day range – which most women do.

When I first heard about cycle beads I was confused too - I thought you had to remove beads or add them based on the length of your cycle. But it really is a brilliant method and my cycles can be anywhere from 27 - 32 days so I'm glad it takes into account such a wide variation.
