During National Endometriosis Awareness Month, we tell the story of how charting with a fertility awareness based method (FABM) helped in the diagnose and treatment of endometriosis, making it possible for a couple to conceive their first child. This interview with the couple is part of our series that highlights the reality of using FABMs, including benefits as well as challenges of the various methods.
Our Meet the FACTS Advisory Council series continues this week as we introduce Dr. Lauren Gordon. Dr. Gordon has been involved with FACTS from the very beginning.
