Is there a safe and effective method for Natural Birth Control?
It is commonly thought amongst women that the only effective method of contraception is the pill or other hormonal contraceptives such as the mirena IUD, depo provera injections or a vaginal hormone-releasing ring. However this is simply not the case.
All of the above methods are effective, although none can say they are 100%. Although effective, these methods also affect the balance and harmony of a woman's menstrual cycle.
So is there a way for natural contraception...a way for women to feel safe and confident about their choice of pregnancy, which doesn't interfere with their hormonal balance?
Yes, there absolutely is! And this method is so much more than simply contraception itself. With Natural Fertility Education, a woman begins to learn about her cycle and connects to the signs that her body is constantly providing in order to come to a solid understanding of when she is ovulating, as well as really getting to know her body along the way!
How do I know when I am ovulating?
By tracking your cervical mucous, the presence and quality of it, and with the support of a practitioner, you will begin to know the exact day that you ovulate each month, as well as knowing your 'fertile' days and your 'infertile' days. This is incredibly valuable for a woman, whether she is trying to avoid conception or whether she is trying to become pregnant.
So our methods of contraception are not limited to hormonal interference. There is absolutely another way, one that research shows is as equally effective as the oral contraceptive pill when both are used correctly.
