Cycle Beads look similar to a bracelet, and have different color coded beads for you to use to track your cycle and know when you are on your most fertile days. It can help you time intercourse at ovulation, especially if you want to improve your chances of conceiving a girl, then you’ll need to to time it 2-3 days before ovulation.

How Do They Work?

Cycle Beads work by offering a visual tool for women that can show you when you are on your fertile days. The beads are all color coded, and there is a tiny metal or rubber ring that you slip over one bead each day to show where you are on your cycle.

The first bead is a red bead, and it marks the first day of your period. On the day your period starts, you move the ring to the red bead. Each day during your period, move the ring one bead over. After the red bead comes six brown beads. They are followed by a series of white beads.

The white beads represent the days of your cycle in which you are most likely to get pregnant. The series of white beads is marked by more brown beads, representing days that it is not likely for you to get pregnant. In between the final series of brown beads is one darker brown bead.

It will help you determine if your period is shorter or longer than 26 days. If you start your period before the ring reaches the dark brown bead, your cycle is shorter than 26 days. Cycle Beads are super easy to use, as long as you remember to move the ring each day. There is even an arrow to help you make sure you are going in the right direction.

Who Can Use Cycle Beads?

Any woman that has a cycle between 26 and 32 days long can use cycle beads. Women whose cycles are shorter or longer than that are not typically good candidates for cycle beads, since their beads will be “off” based on the chart.

While cycle beads don’t “technically” help you to get pregnant, they are a great choice for women who need to chart their cycles and determine their most fertile days. Of course, if there is an underlying problem and you are not ovulating properly, the cycle beads won’t really help. But they are a great way to keep track of your cycles.
