Preggie Pals, a weekly audio podcast and online resource for expecting moms and dads and those trying to become pregnant, recently reviewed the iCycleBeads iPhone app. Overall they gave it two thumb's up! It was interesting to hear the persepctives of women using the app who are trying to get pregnant as opposed to using it to prevent pregnancy. Comments included:
"A much more organized way to track my fertility."
"Nice. Easy. Simple."
But a couple of women mentioned that if you are trying to get pregnant, you may want something more "comprehensive" that allows you to track your BBT (that's your Basal Body Temperature). We know that when a woman decides she wants to get pregnant, she often wants to know exactly when she ovulated, and tracking her BBT is one way to do this. But we would note that when women used just CycleBeads tools (iCycleBeads smartphone apps, CycleBeads Online, or the physical tool CycleBeads) to get pregnant, they were highly successful. Recent surveys show that 37% of women who use CycleBeads tools to get pregnant, are pregnant within the first month, and 80% are pregnant within 6 months.
