The well-known hormonal rhythm method of contraception may not be reliable in general. Despite the widely accepted medical theories about ovulation and optimal timing, the truth is that a woman can conceive at any time of the month, including during her menstruation. In fact, it has been estimated that 7 in 10 women conceive a child outside of their regular ovulation cycle.
The reason for this is that there is another highly fertile time in any month – conception dates determined by the Lunar BioRhythmic Fertility Cycle.
So if a woman wants to avoid conception without any unnatural means, it should be sufficient to avoid sexual intercourse both around the time of her hormonal ovulation and her lunar ovulation dates.
Avoid side effects of birth control pills using our natural contraception calendar. Taking the pill increases a woman’s risk of high blood pressure, blood clots, strokes, heart attacks, liver tumors and gallstones.

Contraception statistics and facts
Did you know that side effects are the most commonly cited reason why women discontinue hormonal contraception methods?!
Here are some statistics about contraceptive methods for women, recent trends as well as historical data on trends from 1982 through 2010. This information is published by www.cdc.gov using studies and research by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s national Center for Health Statistics. The studies were performed seven times since 1973 with women between ages of 15 through 44.
Women use different contraceptive methods including hormonal methods such as pills, implantable and injectable contraceptives, contraceptive patches and contraceptive rings.
About four of every five sexually experienced women have used the pill and this percentage has remained stable since 1995. However, 47% of women who have used at least one method of contraception have discontinued using the method due to dissatisfaction. Between 2006 and 2010, of the 45 million women who have used the pill, 30% discontinued use because of dissatisfaction. Also, nearly one-half of the 12.5 million women who had used the injectable contraceptive Depo-Provera (46%) and 5.6 million women who had used the contraceptive patch (49%) discontinued use due to dissatisfaction.
Of the women who had ever used and discontinued using Depo-Provera, 74% cited side effects as a reason. The second most frequently given reason was that women did not like the changes to their menstrual cycles (31%).
Side effects were also the most commonly cited reason why women discontinued use of the other two hormonal methods – 63% among those who discontinued using the pill and 45% among those who discontinued using the contraceptive patch.
Although modern medical science continues to introduce new solutions for contraception, over time, women choose to discontinue them as well, once again citing side effects in making their decisions.
At iConceive, we offer an alternative method to contraception. We are initiating a study to measure the reliability of our contraception method and although precise statistics are not available, we know our method is reliable but more importantly free of any side effects or long term complications.
