this article annoyed me. because I'm being nitpicky I guess.

Taking your temperature or checking your cervical mucus every day to figure out when you're ovulating has never been a convenient or reliable birth control technique.

CycleBeads are more than 95 percent effective
this gives the effectiveness ratings based on studies. Temping is more reliable than cyclebeads. I don't see how they can say that it has never been reliable

I can understand why some think temping isn't reliable. Afterall, it doesn't tell you about O until after it's happened. And while I myself am pretty regular (always O within 1-2 days of CD 15), I still wouldn't know exactly when I was okay to have unprotected sex until three days after my thermal shift/cervical fluid dry up.

But cycle beads? That's a bunch of hooey IMO. They are comparable to those pregnancy wheels - silly!
