Cycle Technologies Announces New Article Addressing Reasons Why Many Women in the U.S. Are Not Using Contraception
Date:9/23/2013

(PRWEB) September 23, 2013

Cycle Technologies announced a new article on the CycleBeads Blog which reviews reasons many women in the U.S. are not using contraception for preventing pregnancy despite the fact that they do not want to get pregnant. Even though most sexually-active women in the United States have used contraception, there are still more than 3 million unplanned pregnancies each year. According to the most recent National Health Statistics Report, most unplanned pregnancies occur to women who are either not using contraception or are using it inconsistently.

The article outlines the top reasons women cite most often for not using family planning and how the natural family planning option CycleBeads® can address the situation. The reasons women give for not using contraception despite not wanting to get pregnant include:

  • "Did not think you could get pregnant."
  • "Worried about side effects of birth control."
  • "Not expecting to have intercourse."
Studies show that most women do not know when they can get pregnant. Most women can’t answer simple questions such as "When do I ovulate?" and "When will I be fertile?" CycleBeads tools help a woman see clearly and easily when pregnancy is possible during her cycle. The technology can also help women determine whether or not their cycles are irregular.

Based on a natural family planning method called the Standard Days Method®, CycleBeads tools enable a woman to prevent pregnancy simply by understanding which days she is potentially fertile. As a fertility awareness-based family planning method, it does not have side-effects. Most women who choose this natural birth control option, say that their main reason for choosing it is that it is "safe" and "causes no side-effects."

"For those women who say that they ‘did not expect to have intercourse’, taking birth control daily can seem unnecessary. They may not be willing to put up with the side effects or cost of hormonal contraception given that they are not expecting to have intercourse. Additionally, they may not be prepared with a back-up method such as a condom," says Ann Mullen, Director of Client Services at Cycle Technologies. "CycleBeads can help in that they do not require a daily action. A woman simply tracks the first day of her period each cycle, and then can check on any given day as needed to see if she is on a day when pregnancy is possible. CycleBeads tools can help her plan for her fertile days so she is prepared ‘just in case’."

95% of the 3.2 million unintended pregnancies which occur each year in the U.S. are due to women using contraception inconsistently or not at all. More statistics are shown on the blog which can be found here: http://www.cyclebeads.com/blog/815/why-arent-all-women-using-contraception?-.
