iCycleBeads: New iPhone application for planning and avoiding pregnancy
Date:12/2/2010

WASHINGTON, D.C. A scientifically-based family planning tool developed by researchers from Georgetown University's Institute for Reproductive Health, a part of Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC), is now available as an easy-to-use iPhone , iPod touch or iPad application. iCycleBeads is the first software application that enables a woman to plan or avoid pregnancy easily and effectively, entirely through the information provided by the application.

To use iCycleBeads a woman simply enters into the "app" the starting date of her most recent period and any historical data on her menstrual cycles that she may have. At the touch of a button, iCycleBeads shows her where she is in her cycle and whether she is on a day when pregnancy is likely or not.

The "app" is designed as a virtual representation of actual CycleBeads, a string of 32 color-coded beads. A calendar view is also available. A red bead or box marks the first day of a woman's cycle, brown represents days when pregnancy is unlikely, and white represents days when pregnancy is likely. The user will also receive alerts that notify her when she is in her fertile window, when she is on a day when pregnancy is unlikely, and when she is likely to get her period. An alert will also prompt her to enter her cycle data if she forgets.

"Electronic devices like iPhones are increasingly popular and we see this technology as an important new way to reach women. We think that iCycleBeads will appeal to any woman who is interested in effectively and easily managing her fertility and uses a compatible mobile digital device," said Victoria Jennings, Ph.D., director of the Institute for Reproductive Health and professor of obstetrics and gynecology at GUMC.

The new "app" is modeled on the popular family planning tool, CycleBeads. Based on sophisticated computer modeling of reproductive physiology data and tested in large-clinical trials, CycleBeads lets a woman know her cycl
