Fertility Awareness

Fertility awareness methods of birth control require a relatively stable ovulation cycle relying on the identification of a woman’s fertile and infertile days to accurately determine her cycle by charting her body temperature and mucous discharge on a daily basis. Consistent and accurate records have to be kept especially when ovulation and periods occur. Natural Family Planning users do not have intercourse during fertile time unless pregnancy is desired. Any unpredictable irregularity in the cycle can carry the risk of pregnancy. For more information you may like to read a good book about natural birth control and getting pregnant.
