FABM Spotlight: The TwoDay Method. At FACTS, we believe the “right” fertility awareness-based method (FABM) is the one that fits best with each woman or couple’s goals and desires. In this new blog series, we will discuss aspects of each modern method to emphasize the importance of assessing the merits of each FABM individually, since each one has unique benefits, challenges, effectiveness rates, biomarkers used, and nuance. Enjoy learning about each one, starting this month with the TwoDay Method!
This week, as we close out Endometriosis Awareness Month, we are delighted to publish an interview with a patient by one of our international students who participated in the FACTS online elective this year. Below is the story of a young lawyer and her husband as they’ve walked together on the journey through endometriosis diagnosis and treatment. Read about how FABMs empowered this couple and equipped their physician with tools (starting with the female chart) to diagnose and manage the condition.
Our deep dive into Endometriosis research continues this week with a review of research published in 2018 in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology titled, “A prospective cohort study of meat and fish consumption and endometriosis risk.” This is the fifth article we publish to raise awareness about this condition during National Endometriosis Awareness Month, and a good follow-up to last week’s review of a pilot trial about omega-3 fatty acids to treat endometriosis.
We continue our focus on Endometriosis Awareness Month with today’s post on Endo and diet. Dietary choices are potentially modifiable risk factors known to impact a number of conditions ranging from cardiovascular disease to some cancers, among others. The research reviewed this week assesses the potential impact of omega-3 fatty acids on pain associated with endometriosis.
The Creighton Model: From Skepticism to Pregnancy. This week, we share the story of how a fertility awareness-based method (FABM) helped diagnose and treat endometriosis, making it possible for a couple to conceive their first child. Kyndall Stucky, RN enjoyed interviewing this couple during the popular FACTS fertility awareness online elective we teach through Georgetown University School of Medicine.
This is a summary of an article published in 2017 in Current Obstetrics and Gynecology Reports titled, “Endometriosis: Epidemiology, Diagnosis, and Clinical Management.” It was written by Jessica Cooper, a fourth-year medical student who participated in the fertility awareness online elective taught by FACTS through Georgetown University School of Medicine.
