Is your doctor interested in learning more about the Fertility Awareness Method?
Our purpose with this short guide is to provide a brief overview of fertility awareness based methods (FABMs) and present the best evidence available for their effectiveness in family planning. The use of FABMs in the U.S. has grown from 2.3% in 1982 to 4.1% in 2006-2010 (CDC). Interest in these methods is growing, as more women desire family planning options that are free of hormones and side effects, especially since digital technology now makes it easier to track one’s fertility.
Yet, many of us in the medical sector are not informed about the variety of evidence based FABMs that are available and the actual effectiveness rates of the individual methods. We also may not be aware of the benefits of these methods or how we can best support patients who may be interested in using them. Our hope is that this short guide will be a quick reference for you and help you support patients who inquire about them.
