Does anyone use them?

A few months ago I met a woman who makes and sells them at our local farmers market, though called Moontime Rising Spiral Calendar. I was intriuged and they are beautiful. Only later did I really think about how it would work as a menstrual tracking system too. Im wondering if it works, or is benifitial to use? Would it work, being designed to track moon phases, or is it the same...

Cycle Beads is nothing more than a cute way of doing the Rhythm or Calender Method. It assumes or guesses that you will be fertile on certain days of the cycle. That can be moderately effective if you have very regular cycle, but won't account for the possibility of ovulating earlier or later than usual. If your cycles are at all irregular, it won't be very effective.

So just decoration more than anything. Would it be at all benefitial to use in combination with any other methods?

In that case, I'd just steer clear of them altogether. They wouldn't be beneficial, except as a pretty necklace. LOL

Yeah, there's no science behind them and I think they'd throw off another method actually.

I agree I think they would confuse me by giving conflicting info w/ my method.
