We are looking forward to this year’s virtual conference as an opportunity to connect with one another, to learn more about fertility awareness and its connection to women’s health, and to explore timely topics in reproductive health together. We hope to “see” you there!

Significant innovations and discoveries continue to evolve in women’s healthcare, particularly within the realm of reproductive science. Natural methods for monitoring the female cycle have been standardized and refined based on ongoing research and in step with growing patient interest and demand for more information and alternatives in care. Modern, evidence-based fertility awareness based methods (FABMs) can serve as an important diagnostic tool in women’s health and as a safe and effective alternative in family planning. Unfortunately, the overwhelming majority of physicians are not familiar with FABMs, how their effectiveness rates compare to OCPs, and how the information recorded on women’s charts can aid in the diagnosis and management of common women’s health concerns. To address this knowledge gap FACTS is presenting this two-day conference in 2021 designed to equip medical and health professionals to offer more holistic and restorative healthcare options for women. Join us!
