Planning My Pregnancy with CycleBeads

We loved this note from Emma C. and had to share!

"I didn't think it would happen. It did, naturally! I'm 43 and my husband is 49 and we got pregnant in 2 months using CycleBeads. We had been trying for several months prior with no real plan and no results. We are grateful and blessed. Thanks!"

Thank you Emma for sharing your experience and and congratulations on your beautiful baby girl!

Testimonials

Tammy B., NM
"I had so much trouble finding information online about natural contraceptives and almost gave up. I asked my midwife if she knew about CycleBeads, and she said yes! I was almost dumbfounded that she knew of it, and she said that she has patients that use it with great results preventing pregnancies. I could've just used a calendar, but am so glad I got the beads instead. Being able to visualize something as important as your fertility is more profoundly helpful and fun than just seeing a chart in the dresser drawer. Finding CycleBeads has opened the world of natural contraceptives to me. I proudly hang my CycleBeads on my bedroom wall by the bed. They're pretty and my husband doesn't have to ask me all the time where I am fertility wise because he can see! Unlike 'the pill' or the like, which make you unfertile while using them, CycleBeads keep you aware of being fertile and you feel good about it. Haha, I can't wait to get some Deluxe Cyclebeads, but my hubby worries I'll wear them as a necklace. I have the basic set, and yes, I have contemplated wearing them as a necklace. Your www.IRH.org website has so much info on the Fertility Awareness Method*. Thanks. *Editor’s note – the www.irh.org website is the website of the Institute for Reproductive Health, the research organization that developed CycleBeads . IRH is a separate organization with which Cycle Technologies often works, but is not affiliated."
