I am not a big fan of birth control with hormones. I used it for a short time before my first baby was born, and then I just decided it wasn’t for me. I couldn’t remember to take the pill everyday, it made me nauseous, & I didn’t want to pay for it . Now I know there are other types of birth control that don’t include pills, or hormones, but I still don’t want to deal with it. I want something natural.
CycleBeads is a natural birth control option that really piqued my interest.
“CycleBeads® is a color-coded string of beads that represent a woman’s menstrual cycle and can help her plan or prevent pregnancy by tracking her cycle. Each bead represents a day of the cycle and the color helps a woman determine if she is likely to be fertile that day.
CycleBeads is based on a natural family planning method called the Standard Days Method® , and is designed to help a woman track her cycle, and monitor the key information required to use this family planning method effectively. CycleBeads is more than 95% effective when used correctly. See more about the effectiveness of this family planning option as well as the research behind CycleBeads and the Standard Days Method in the CycleBeads Research section of this website.”
What I love about CycleBeads is that you can use them to either PLAN or PREVENT pregnancy. I also love it because it is natural. No crazy hormones to make me moody or sick. And CycleBeads are so simple to use:
“To use CycleBeads, a woman simply moves a ring over the beads to track each day of her cycle. The color of the beads lets her know whether she is on a day when pregnancy is likely or not and whether her cycle length is in the appropriate range for using this natural family planning method. “
I keep my CycleBeads on my nightstand & I just move the ring to the next bead before I go to bed. That’s it, I’m done! My girls think it’s just a pretty necklace but it’s a lot more than that .
