Let’s nip this in the bud right now…
The myth: The Fertility Awareness Method is the same as the Rhythm Method.
The truth: Oh my GODDESS! Not it’s not and please stop saying that.
The Rhythm Method makes mathematical projections based on past menstrual cycle history to predict future fertile and infertile phases of the menstrual cycle.
These predictions, though occasionally right, assume most people ovulate around the same time (Hey! Remember Myth #3 that ovulation always occurs on day 14?) and DO NOT accurately reflect your current cycle!
Thus making it an ineffective, out-dated form of natural birth control.
The Fertility Awareness Method teaches a woman how to determine the status of her fertility through daily observations of her body’s signs like cervical mucus, basal body temperature, cervical position.
You will always know if you are fertile right now, today. You won’t need to wonder and guess.
It’s like deciding if you need to wear a rain jacket or not by looking at the weather forecast this time last month or looking out the window!
See you tomorrow!
