Learning to postpone pregnancy


Similar to achieving pregnancy, understanding the signs of fertility and infertility in a women's menstrual cycle is important for avoiding pregnancy.  

Fertility Awareness Methods

Fertility Awareness Methods (FAMS) are the different methods available to identify naturally occurring signs of fertility and infertility in your cycle.

Using these methods, you can gain confidence in observing your individual and reliable signs, indicating potential fertility or infertility on a day-to-day basis.

To avoid pregnancy, a couple abstains from intercourse during the fertile phase.  Evidence-based studies have shown that FAMs are 90-99% effective in avoiding pregnancy when followed correctly and are comparable to use of the Oral Contraceptive Pill (OCP) in real-world conditions.
