How to use Fertility Awareness Method

A couple who is not ready for having a child, fertility awareness method may be used as a natural birth control in order to predict the fertile times. However, many women are confused how to count their fertile days and still don’t know when the safe days would be.

How to use Fertility Awareness Method

Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) is a natural birth control by calculating the time period after ovulation until the time before eggs develop. During this time, female uterus is not ready for pregnancy. The safe days are including:

  • 7 Days “before” period
  • 7 Days “after” the first day of period

A person can have sex during these safe days without barrier or contraceptive devices in order to reduce the risk of undesirable pregnancy.

For instance; if you have period on the 8th – 11th day of the month, your “7 Days before period” will be on the 1st – 7th day and your “7 Days after the first day of period” will be on the 8th – 14th day. Therefore, your safe days for having sex will be on the 1st – 14th day.

Fertility Awareness Method can be used in a woman who has “regular period only”. Using FAM inconsistently and incorrectly or an error just for one day, woman is vulnerable to become pregnant.

While having sex, the couple who is not ready for a baby should use condoms. Since condom can reduce the risk of pregnancy as well as the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.
