Fertility Awareness Methods

All methods require couples to chart their symptoms daily. Your educator will help you interpret your charts at your follow-up appointments.

Billings Ovulation Method®

Used by millions of women around the world and successfully trialled by the World Health Organisation:

  • It is a natural method where a couple are taught to recognise both the fertile patterns of cervical mucus and the infertile patterns of discharge which is unique to the Billings Ovulation Method.
  • Can be used to assist in achieving or postponing a pregnancy. It helps you safeguard your reproductive health.
  • It is reliable and able to be used throughout the woman's reproductive life.

* If your chart does not reflect a normal ovulatory pattern
for your life stage, your teacher will give you a referral
back to your doctor for further investigation.

The Sympto-Thermal Method

Relies on couples observing a number of signs of ovulation (multi-indicator approach):

  • Cervical mucus indicating ovulation.
  • Body temperature shifts after ovulation.
  • Other useful indicators of fertility that are individual to each woman.

  • Used in conjunction with NaPro (Natural Procreative) Technology for treatment of reproductive disorders and infertility.NaPro GPs aim to investigate and restore reproductive health.
