To kick off National Breastfeeding Month, we are featuring a cross-sectional study that examines the relationship between perceived milk supply and exclusive breastfeeding during the first six months postpartum.
The FACTS elective attracts a broad spectrum of medical students interested in fertility awareness, with a vast range of baseline knowledge of the methods and their efficacy.
For decades, researchers have sought ways to help women and couples more easily identify their window of fertility. They have examined cervical mucus observations, basal body temperature, and urinary hormone measurements to better track women’s ovulation.
More than a hundred years ago, researchers discovered that slight changes in the woman’s core body temperature reflect the various phases of the female cycle.
This month we are featuring research summaries and patient interviews highlighting the various fertility awareness-based methods (FABMs) that people may choose to use for family planning.
Though there are many types of fertility awareness-based methods (FABMs) to use when looking to achieve or avoid pregnancy, it is important that women and couples are properly educated and instructed on how to use each method.
