FABMs, Fertility, and A Physician’s Reflections: An Interview with a Couple

In this interview we highlight the benefits of FABMs for family planning as seen through the experiences of one couple and the physician who worked with them to learn and apply the methods. Although FABMs may not be for everyone, studies show that most women who hear about these modern, safe, evidence-based methods are curious and want to learn more. Once educated, many women choose to try one of the methods, appreciate learning about their bodies and fertility, and feel empowered and healthier.

There’s an App for That: FABMs Around the World

The Institute for Reproductive Health (IRH) at Georgetown University Medical Center has contributed to family planning research since 1985, when it was founded to address family planning gaps around the world. The IRH has helped develop effective modern calendar methods of family planning based on solid research. This week we share a medical student’s summary of research published in 2000 about one such simple, inexpensive natural method of family planning that was highly acceptable among users.
