Learning Fertility Awareness Method is for anyone who is interested in familiarizing herself with her body and all its wonders. It is for anyone who wants to have tools to help track and balance her health and hormonal system.
As such, learning the Method is for anyone who is looking for a natural way to prevent pregnancy, without using artificial hormones. Alternately, it is also for anyone who, through understanding her fertility cycle, is planning on getting pregnant.
That being said, the method is not for everyone.
It is a process that takes time, patience and responsibility. Studying the material and information is different than actually practicing the method.
Learning the method doesn’t necessarily mean that you will be able to rely on it to prevent pregnancy, but at the end of the course, you will have enough information to know which way is right for you for right now. Perhaps later on, your situation will change and you will be able to come back to the method.
You will need to dedicate time and patience in order to learn your body’s rhythm and patterns. You should take this into consideration if you are trying to conceive here and now, or if you are looking for a means of birth control.
Tracking your fertility signs and using the method differs from taking birth control pills, which creates a static situation for the length of your monthly cycle. Without the pill, you might feel the hormonal fluctuations happening in your body. You might notice very nice and interesting patterns and you might experience patterns that are less pleasant such as pains, moods and other symptoms, of which you can treat and balance. On the other hand, if you tend to suffer from different symptoms for taking the pills, they are expected to be gone shortly after you get off the pill
Our hormonal cycle is affected by night sleep, flights and nutritional deficiencies. So if you work night shifts, or fly very often or suffer from severe nutritional deficiency or an eating disorder, it can be challenging and in some cases impossible to rely on the method to prevent pregnancy. Therefore it’s recommended to use the method in a more balanced and stable lifestyle.
In case you experience an unbalanced hormonal system, or different diseases for which you take different medications, it might be more challenging to be able to rely on the method to prevent pregnancy and it might take more time and patience. You might need to take have some treatments that will allow you to get stronger and balanced. It doesn’t mean you can’t start tracking your fertility signs. It’s even recommended to follow them and see the chart changing as you are become more balanced and stronger.
If you are right after birth or breastfeeding, the online course is not enough for you. In this case, I recommend that you have more personal guidance, and be followed more intensely by me.
Unlike other methods, applying the fertility awareness method requires you to take responsibility for your own body. A lot of women are scared of the concept of responsibility, but after you learn the language of your body, and its patterns, you actually learn to trust yourself and your body. That kind of responsibility feels so right.
The sensations of reclaiming your body increases.
From my experience and the experience of others, the sensation of loving your body increases as well.
