HOORAH! CycleBeads are my first sponsor for my BIG ANNOUNCEMENT EVENT!
I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to learn about CycleBeads this month. This is a fantastic product that's right up my alley! CycleBeads are a non-hormonal birth control/family planning system! They are also economic (yep, I'm thrifty), and reusable! Green, non-hormonal, family planning can it get any better? It did get better, because I got to try them out.
Okay, okay - so, I'm already pregnant, why would I need them? The truth is, I don't yet. I definitely could have used them a few months ago, and I'll use them again in half a year or so. My opinion of CycleBeads? They're incredible. I really think they're a wonderful product and I'm so glad that I can "test" these. I will absolutely be using them after Baby 3 is born.
Non-Hormonal Birth Control: What does that mean? It means that you are not putting chemicals and hormones into your body. This will not control the flow of your period or prevent you from getting pregnant. CycleBeads work by helping you be aware of your cycle and showing you the days that you are most fertile. If you want to avoid getting pregnant, you can choose to use contraceptives during that period of time, or you can abstain from sex.
Family planning: This works just like the birth control - you know when your most fertile days are because you've marked them on your beads, so get it on! They even have a conception kit!
Cost Effective: Because these are beads, they can be used again and again. There are several different styles to use. The cheapest set is $13.95, the prettiest set is $26.95 (plus tax & shipping).
What I love about CycleBeads: EVERYTHING!
What I would improve about CycleBeads: I wish they had a bracelet sized set!
