Erika Owens’ Followers Not Happy with Her Natural Cycle Partnership
In addition to fueling pregnancy rumors, fans had a lot to say about her promotion of the company in general. Many fans were actually quite miffed by her choice to partner with Natural Cycles. They strongly felt that she and the company were broadcasting inaccurate information.
Many of Erika’s followers were upset by the Natural Cycles website. Natural Cycles site and the Erika’s post both say that women can only get pregnant for 6 days during their cycle. In fact, according to the NHS, women can get pregnant at any point of their cycle. There are, however, some days when their bodies are more fertile than others. Sperm can live inside the body for several days. So, even if you are not super fertile at the time, your body can keep the sperm in swimming condition for up to seven days. This might flow over into a more fertile span of your cycle.
Followers were quick to point out the misinformation in the post and voiced that they also were not happy about her promoting a birth control that is only 93% effective – based on the Natural Cycles own site info.
