Getting the bead on conception
Date:4/15/2010

WASHINGTON, D.C. A scientifically-based tool developed by researchers from Georgetown University's Institute for Reproductive Health to help women prevent pregnancy naturally, is now being used by a growing number of women to help plan pregnancy.

An estimated twenty percent of women who wish to become pregnant are unsuccessful because they do not know when they are fertile, according to the American Infertility Association. CycleBeads is a fertility management aid which allows women to easily identify their "fertile window", the time during which pregnancy is most likely, thus allowing women to know on which days of the menstrual cycle they are fertile and which days they are not.

Based on sophisticated computer modeling of reproductive physiology data, CycleBeads lets a woman know her cycle length and clearly identifies days 8 through 19 of her cycle as the days during which she is fertile. These 12 days take into account the life span of the woman's egg (about 24 hours) and the viable life of sperm (about 5 days) as well as the variation in the actual timing of ovulation from one cycle to the next.

"We originally developed CycleBeads with a focus on helping women prevent pregnancy. However we've been pleasantly surprised with the number of women who are also using them to achieve pregnancy. Since this tool helps women identify their fertile days, it significantly improves their likelihood of conceiving," said Victoria Jennings, Ph.D., director of the Institute for Reproductive Health and co-developer of CycleBeads.

Now the manufacturer of CycleBeads will be offering the fertility management tool as part of a conception kit to help women contemplating pregnancy attain that goal naturally. In addition to the deluxe version of CycleBeads, the new kit includes a specially designed fertility journal to record key information, a supply of folic acid -- recommended for all women contemplating pregnancy -- and a scented candle.'/>"/>
