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

The fertility journal includes useful information related to conception. For example, it notes that to maximize likelihood of pregnancy, physicians recommend that couples have intercourse every other day during their fertile time to ensure that sperm counts are healthy. Importantly, data recorded by a woman in the journal can provide valuable information both to her and her physician.

"Many doctors recommend that women try to get pregnant for up to a year before addressing concerns about fertility. If a woman is using the information that CycleBeads provides and is tracking key data such as when she is having intercourse and when she gets her periods, potential fertility issues can be identified more quickly. This gives her and her doctor a lot more information with which to work," said Jennings.

Like the classic CycleBeads, the deluxe version is a string of 32 color-coded beads. A reddish bead marks the first day of a woman's cycle, the colored beads represent days when pregnancy is unlikely, and the white beads represent days when pregnancy is likely. A black marker is used to track the days.

To use CycleBeads, a woman simply moves the black marker over the color-coded beads that represent her fertile and low fertility days. Each day she moves the ring one bead forward, always in the direction of the arrow located on the clasp. When the ring is on any of the colored beads, there is a very low likelihood of pregnancy. When the ring is on the white beads there is a high probability of getting pregnant.

"Given the large number of women who fail to get pregnant because they are mistaken about when they are likely to conceive, it is important that the healthcare community let women know about the importance of tracking their fertility and the availability of an easy to use, low cost, scientifically-based tool to help them do so," said Jennings, an anthropologist who studies reproductive health behavior.
