Although it seems that I am mostly addressing women, I definitely address men as well. I’m glad to tell you that there are a lot of men who wish to be more involved in the process of achieving or preventing pregnancy, and the Fertility Awareness Method is definitely supportive of that, more than any other method.
FAM encourages open conversation regarding all subjects which come up as part of the process of creating a collaboration.
From my experience, the learning and applying of FAM, opens the door to deeper connection and intimacy with each other. As much as the woman receives the legitimacy to feel her body and the changes within, so does the man, as it’s more possible to connect to those places within you.
There is something about becoming more familiar with that amazing fertility mechanism of the woman that opens more space for love and a dialogue for development.
There are men who fill out the chart together with their partner, reminding her to take her temperature in the morning, analyzing the chart and are able to tell when the fertile phase begins and ends.
When you, as a man, are more involved using the method, it allows your partner to feel your care and support, with a sense of partnership along the way.
