What is FACTS?

FACTS is the Fertility Appreciation Collaborative, a group comprised of physicians, other health care professionals and educators working together to Teach the Science of natural or fertility awareness based methods (FABMs) of family planning.

Our goal is to share the best evidence available with our health care colleagues so they can educate women and men about their fertility, empower them to make more informed choices about family planning, and enable women to collaborate with their physicians to better monitor and manage their reproductive health.Google+

Please see our review article in the Osteopathic Family Physician for the most current and comprehensive review of the evidence of FABMs.
