Thank you to everyone who participated this past weekend in the production of our documentary-style video. Check out some of the behind the scenes photos! An amazing group of women shared their stories.
CycleBeads will be featured in an upcoming episode of Horizons on BBC World News. The program will examine how contraceptive options such as CycleBeads have helped decrease fertility rates by nearly half in South Asia and will specifically look at their impact in India.
In addition to exploring how this innovative family planning option enables women to prevent pregnancy naturally in an easy, effective, safe way, the program will also look at how some of the new digital tools such as CycleBeads Online, iCycleBeads smartphone apps, and a text-based SMS tool, are making this family planning method even more accessible.
The episode airs on November 2 and November 3. To find out the schedule in your area, check out: bbc.com/tvschedule
A recent article in The Atlantic "The New Old-School Birth Control" outlines the complicated and challenging environment for fertility awareness-based methods. The article does a good job describing the many barriers that make it difficult for women in the U.S. to find out about natural methods and get the support they need to use them. But we disagree with the author's premise that "tracking fertility effectively is more complicated than just counting days" and that she dismisses "calendar-based methods" as "just the rhythm method".
The Standard Days Method®, the family planning method on which CycleBeads® tools are based, is a calendar-based natural method and it actually addresses many of the barriers to acceptance that the article describes for other fertility awareness-based methods.
The CycleBeads® website has a handy online self-screener to help you determine whether you can use CycleBeads as your contraceptive method. Here are the questions to consider, but make sure to use the self-screener to find out what the advice is for your answers...

"My husband and I decided to try CycleBeads after hearing the success that a family member of ours had with them. To be honest, we were reluctant at first, worried that this simple method would result in an unwanted pregnancy. But, after having used CycleBeads for 2 years now, we have had only one pregnancy, and it was planned! I had used prescription birth control in the past. CycleBeads have proven to be simple and very effective."
