Cyclebeads: natural family planning on a necklace

Last Update: January 11, 2013

Each bead on this necklace represents a day of a woman's menstrual period.  The Cyclebeads are being used around the world as a means of natural family planning.  A small rubber ring moves from bead to bead to signify the day of the month and the color of the bead signifies the level of fertility. This single beaded necklace can be used month after month, year after year-- nothing to consume, inject or implant.

CycleBeads is the fastest growing natural family planning option in the world with more than 2.5 million women in more than 50 countries using this method since it began to be offered in late 2002.
