CycleBeads app

The CycleBeads app helps a woman to plan or prevent pregnancy easily and effectively by tracking her period cycle using the Standard Days Method®,a fertility awareness-based family planning method. A woman should just enter the date her period starts, and CycleBeads will tell her the fertile and non-fertile days.


The Study
Georgetown University’s Institute for Reproductive Health (IRH) partnered with AfriAfya to offer the CycleBeads app to women based in Nairobi County. A research was conducted into the usability and acceptability of the CycleBeads app.
AfriAfya’s role was to: carry out trainings on how to use the CycleBeads app, follow up with the research group, and provide a platform to answer any inquiries that many come through.
