Fertility Awareness Method
For Birth Control, Fertility and Conception.
The Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) is a natural, hormone-free method of birth control. The method teaches users to read their body’s changes in cervical mucus and body temperature to determine the fertile and infertile phases of the cycle. A simple set of rules can then be applied to either avoid or achieve pregnancy.
When practiced correctly, FAM is 99.4% effective at preventing pregnancy. In couples wanting to conceive, FAM can be an effective tool in greatly increasing the chances of pregnancy by timing sex for conception.
In an average menstrual cycle, there are only 4 to 7 days where it is possible to fall pregnant. Due to the commonly held belief that a woman is fertile every day, many healthy couples incorrectly believe they are struggling with infertility. When they learn to read to signs of fertility and time sex accordingly, they often fall pregnant with ease.
As a Clinical Nutritionist and Fertility Awareness Educator, Tamika believes that our menstrual cycle provides invaluable information about our overall well being. When we are out of balance, our body sends us clues that show up through our cycles.
This might be shorter or longer cycles, PMS, migraines, painful or heavy periods, mood changes or cravings. Working with a qualified Nutritionist and FAM educator means that you can identify areas of your cycle that need support, and gently bring them back into balance.
Tamika works with clients who are looking for an effective, hormone-free method of birth control, as well as couples who are trying to conceive. Many women find learning to chart their cycles is a beautiful opportunity for reflection, self-awareness and deep respect for their bodies, no matter which stage of life they are in.
