Why Use FAM?

FAM is NOT  the rhythm method our grandmothers used!

The rhythm method predicts when a female will ovulate and therefore is ineffective. However with FAM, you observe and chart 2 primary signs of fertility which allow you to determine on a day to day basis if you are fertile or not.  When your fertile wave begins, you can choose as a couple whether to abstain from intercourse or to use a barrier method to prevent pregnancy.*

The fertile wave lasts from 7-12 days generally. That leaves over half of your cycle open for barrier free intercourse without risk of getting pregnant! 

FAM is a highly accurate and effective method of natural birth control when the 4 FAM rules are charted and followed in each cycle. FAM is over 99% effective when used correctly, meaning it is as effective as oral contraceptives.  FAM is based on the observation and charting of scientifically proven fertility signs that determine whether or not a woman is fertile (capable of getting pregnant) on any given day.

Oh, but there's so much more! 

 

When you take a FAM workshop, you're not just learning a natural birth control method, you're also learning information that has empowered individuals around the world!  

Fertility awareness education teaches what is normal down there and how to tune into any problematic changes with hormonal and gynecological health.  

Having gained that education and  awareness about yourself, you can take back control of your health!

How is that possible? Well, if you are charting then you are paying attention to your body on a regular basis. You can know sooner, rather than later, if things are happening that are not normal for you. Depending on the type of issue, you'll know whether to seek health advice immediately due to abnormal symptoms or you'll know if your body is just asking for some more TLC in your next cycle.

Pros and Cons of FAM for Birth Control

The Fertility Awareness Method (FAM), as a natural birth control, has pros and it has cons (as does any form of contraceptive). Take a look at the pros and cons below.

*Use of a barrier method during the fertile wave means that you are using that  barrier method (i.e. condom, diaphragm) to prevent pregnancy and are therefore depending upon the effectiveness of that barrier, not the effectiveness of FAM.
