Your December CT Newsletter
We are so thankful for the support from the reproductive health community and from our users. We are continuing to advance and improve our contraceptive technologies (Dot, CycleBeads, and 2Day) to help tackle the unmet family planning needs of women globally. And we couldn’t do it without the support of this community.
In the past year alone, almost 1 million people have been introduced to these family planning options, and used them for pregnancy prevention, pregnancy planning or just for informational purposes. Your feedback and support have helped us improve these technologies and expand access to them.
Check out all of this season’s highlights in this newsletter.
CycleBeads App: Global Impact
We've worked closely with researchers to see how the CycleBeads Android app works in a number of low-resource countries with high unmet contraceptive need. These countries include Ghana, India, Jordan, Egypt, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Democratic Republic of Congo, Mali, and Madagascar.
Dot's New Health Alert Feature
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED FEEDBACK

Are Fertility Awareness Based Methods and the "Rhythm Method" the same?
We hear a lot from people who are confused about the difference between a “fertility awareness-based family planning method” and the “rhythm method”. What’s more, many people have no idea that there are actually several different types of fertility awareness methods that have been well tested and proven effective. Learn more about the different types of fertility awareness methods and how they differ from the “rhythm method” in this recent article here.
