This is also known as fertility awareness and works by identifying times in your menstrual cycle where you are more likely or less likely to get pregnant. There are various different ways of doing this including monitoring temperature, cervical mucous and length of your cycle. Apps can be used or charts can be plotted to identify safe times and there are also bead bracelets that can be used. This method can potentially be up to 99% effective if used carefully but is only effective in women with regular cycles. Please contact Choices for more information regarding this method and to discuss with our staff.
