I’ve been using the symptoThermal method of fertility awareness for 3 years now. I did not have that option to choose, so I chose natural family planning. FAM has not only worked as a successful birth control for me and my partner for the past 3 years, but also empowered me and educated me about the female’s body, and recognizing the menstrual cycle as the fifth vital sign of health. Through FAM, I do observe and chart the primary fertility signs (cervical fluid/basal body temperature) that reflect my hormonal state. I have an insight on my fertile window and how to manage it. I know the normal cycle perimeters and can identify any abnormality before its too late to address. I and my partner had developed an elevated communication skills to talk about Fertility, safe sex, pleasure, unprotected sex, and even hard conversation like what to do in case on an unintended pregnancy. The symptoThermal method is 99.4% affective with perfect use, with no side effects, no synthetic hormones, and no environmental burdan. 3 years, enjoying our sexual lives, no unintended pregnancies.FAM had brought me back to my truth!
