All About Sensation

All About Sensation

Identifying the sensation when you wipe your vulva is incredibly important for fertility awareness to be effective.

Unfortunately, a lot of popular fertility awareness apps don’t have space to record this, so people who have only learned from a book or an app may be misinterpreting their fertile days.

Read on to see why it’s so important and how to improve your charting.

Why You Should Work With A Fertility Awareness Educator

Why You Should Work With A Fertility Awareness Educator

A question I get asked a lot is, “Why should I work with a fertility awareness educator when I can learn by reading a book?”

I want to tell you that working with a fertility awareness educator is invaluable. And I don’t say this because I’m an educator, rather, I’m an educator because I truly believe it’s important for people to have that support. Working with an educator has a ton of benefits that you just can’t get when learning on your own.

To Temp Or Not To Temp

To Temp Or Not To Temp

Well, that is the question, isn’t it?!

There seems to be some debate, and I’ve heard it from my own clients, about whether or not it’s possible to practice fertility awareness for contraception accurately and effectively by using mucus only.

I have to tell you that temping is not intrinsically better than not temping! But there’s a big caveat here: it all depends on how you were trained.

When Did I Ovulate?

When Did I Ovulate?

This is a question I often see asked in fertility awareness discussion boards online. “When did I ovulate?” they want to know.

The truth is, we’ll never know exactly when we ovulate unless we have an ultrasound scan of our ovaries every day — and who would want to do that?! So how do we know when we’re infertile after ovulation if we can’t actually pinpoint ovulation?

Fertility Awareness Is As Effective As The Pill!

Fertility Awareness Is As Effective As The Pill!

One of the most common myths about the Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) is that it doesn’t work to prevent pregnancy. And when women are learning how to use it they always want to know how effective it is. At perfect use, it’s 99.6% effective, as good as hormonal contraception! (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.
