No pills, no implants, no devices, nothing that isn't already part of your amazing body. It’s completely safe.
This isn't your grandma's "Rhythm method." FABMs are based on established fertility science and their efficacy rates run from 98% to 99%, for sympto-thermal methods, to 86% to 93% for the sympto-hormonal methods and 83% to 97% for ovulation methods.
Fertility is increasingly referred to as the "fifth vital sign" for women because charted cycles provide an excellent picture of not only reproductive health but also overall health. FABM users are armed with information that enables them to identify and address seemingly unrelated problems — sometimes before other symptoms ever arise.
Many women find that simply by paying attention to their fertility, they perceive themselves in a new way. Suddenly, their bodies make sense, they're empowered by their cycles, and their confidence blossoms.
FABMs don't necessarily require two people, but when fertility awareness is shared in a marriage, couples report increased communication, empathy, trust, and overall marital and sexual satisfaction.
There is a variety of methods to choose from, each employing different approaches, rules and requirements. Learn about the differences and pick the one that best fits your lifestyle.
While all forms of FABMs have relatively low ongoing costs, some require more upfront cost than others. Pick the method that's right for your budget, and know it will definitely be less expensive than artificial birth control.
Practicing FABMs is a lifestyle that respects the dignity of our bodies. It lends itself to being "other-centered" and is consistent with many faiths teachings on Natural Law and a chaste, family centered lifestyle.
