Cycle Technologies is introducing a new educational series for health providers. This series is intended to help health professionals offer a full range of contraceptive options that include effective fertility awareness-based methods. Specifically, these educational sessions will focus on simple natural birth control methods such as CycleBeads, which can be offered by health providers in a regular professional setting.
The series includes webinars with health experts, customized virtual trainings for health clinics, on-site trainings in the DC metro area, and live trainings at the Cycle Technologies offices in Washington, DC.
Leslie Heyer, founder of Cycle Technologies spoke at the recent DevTech – Innovative Solutions for Poverty Alleviation event at the Embassy of Sweden in Washington, DC on April 9th 2014.
Heyer presented to a group of global thought leaders discussing solutions to decrease poverty with cost efficient, impactful solutions. Click here to view a clip of the discussion.
When I decided to try CycleBeads, I was really nervous. I was just starting grad school and my husband was just finishing. We were both students and getting pregnant would have been a nightmare.
I know a lot of women in my situation would have said that I should use an IUD or the pill, but I've tried both and it did not go well. With the IUD I had terrible cramping and bled. With the pill, I was sick ALL THE TIME. Seriously - every minute of the day. It felt like an impossible situation.

This is a one-hour webinar designed for healthcare professionals who are interested in finding out about CycleBeads and the Standard Days Method (a fertility awareness-based method) and how to offer it to patients. . . . .
On Minnesota Public Radio recently, experts from the Institute for Reproductive Health (IRH) at Georgetown University, and the Guttmacher Institute discussed the state of birth control in the U.S. IRH did a great job of outlining their top 5 takeaways from the discussion on their blog.
The takeaways include...
All CycleBeads tools use a visual representation of a woman's cycle to help her keep track of her cycle days, identify which days of her cycle pregnancy is possible, and monitor her cycle length. This new video "How CycleBeads Works" is a great introduction for anyone who wants to understand how the visual aspects of CycleBeads help a woman do this. Check it out!
Healthcare providers can now sign up patients directly for a free 60-day trial of the CycleBeads Online service with the new Provider Access™ feature. This feature was the result of extensive feedback from healthcare providers interested in offering their patients CycleBeads via an online tool.
We designed Provider Access with time savings in mind, so it can be used quickly and easily during a normal consultation. See how it works...
If you are a healthcare provider and would like to sign up your patients with the Provider Access tool, please contact us at email@example.com or 202.237.0662.

We love this video too! It was put together from some of the footage in the documentary-style video with women describing their experiences using CycleBeads. We plan to use this as a teaser to get people to find out more about this family planning tool!

"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."
