Using Emergency Contraception With Fertility Awareness

Using Emergency Contraception With Fertility Awareness

I think we’ve all been in the situation where we’re not sure if our birth control method is working, had a condom burst, or had unprotected sex then regretted it.

Previously, if you didn’t want to be pregnant, you would have to assume you were fertile every single day and take emergency contraception (EC) regardless of when it happened. But now, since you’re using the fertility awareness method, you can know exactly when EC is needed and when you can relax and not have to think about it.

Today (December 1) is World AIDS Day. A day to remember that people around the world are still living with HIV and still dying from AIDS-related illnesses.

How is HIV related to fertility awareness? All women have decisions to make regarding contraception, planning for pregnancy, being sexual with their partners, and their relationship with their bodies, and these are all impacted by living with HIV.

(something a lot of people don’t know).

So how do we know this? Science! Keep reading to see the research that backs this up.
