One of the ways to increase your fertility level is to be aware of the dos and don’ts of fertility. Fertility awareness offers you a collection of methods using your body’s natural functions to determine the days of the month you are most likely to get pregnant. It is also called Natural Family Planning (NFP), and other variations include the Sympto-Thermal Method, the Ovulation Method, and the Billings Method.
How to use the calendar/rhythm method to calculate fertility
Fertility awareness is becoming familiar with your menstrual cycle and to begin charting your fertility pattern. The average menstrual cycle is between 28 to 32 days.
What is Basal body temperature and how do I chart?
The basal body temperature method helps identify a change in temperature that occurs after ovulation and remains elevated until your next period. By looking at charting from a few cycles, your temperatures can reveal a pattern from which ovulation can be anticipated. The steps below can help you as you begin to track your temperature and identify when you are ovulating.
Can the Cervical mucus method indicate how fertile I am?
The consistency of your cervical mucus changes during the menstrual cycle. In the average cycle, after a 5-day menstrual flow, there are about 3 to 4 dry days. The mucus wetness increases daily, lasting approximately 9 days until the wettest day. Your mucus is easily recognized at this point. It should be slippery, clear, stretchy, and look like egg whites. Ovulation generally occurs within 1-2 days of your peak day of stretchy mucus.
What is the effectiveness of Fertility Awareness?
Used correctly and consistently, it may reach rates of effectiveness around 90% depending on how effective you track and record your fertility pattern. It is important to stop any form of birth control during your fertility window.
