CycleBeads Myth: This method only works if you ovulate on day 14 of your cycle.
This myth often goes hand in hand with the idea that a woman also must have a “perfect” 28 day cycle in order to use this method. Those who think this is true have not looked very closely at how this method works.
The Truth: CycleBeads takes into account the fact that ovulation generally occurs around the midpoint of a woman’s cycle, but that it can move around from one cycle to the next. This is part of the reason that the method identifies 12 days (days 8-19) as days when a woman is potentially fertile. This fertile period takes into account that ovulation occurs around the midpoint of the cycle, but that it can move around by a few days in any given cycle.
