Enroll in The FACTS CME Course
The FACTS 8-part CME Course – Fertility Awareness Based Methods (FABMs) for Family Planning and Restorative Reproductive Women’s Healthcare, prepares you as a medical professional to present these OPTIONS for family planning and women’s health monitoring and management of a range of reproductive health concerns.
Through online lectures, live case study discussions, and readings, this course will explore the broad applications of modern Fertility Awareness-Based Methods (FABMs) and their role in pregnancy prevention, infertility, and women’s health.
The course is divided into 8 parts; you may elect to do any or all of them and they may be completed in any order. Each part is self-paced, parts may be taken individually, consecutively, or simultaneously, and each part is worth 16 – 18 AAFP-approved CME credits with optional participation in live case discussions.
The AAFP has reviewed Fertility Awareness Based Methods for Family Planning and Restorative Reproductive Healthcare, and deemed it acceptable for AAFP credit. Term of approval is from 11/01/2022 to 11/01/2023. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Credit approval is specific to individual sessions/lessons. For a detailed list of credit approvals, please click here.

|CME Part A||$397.00|
In Part A, An Introduction to Modern FABMs for Family Planning, participants will survey modern evidence-based FABMs, including the research underlying the development of the different methods, their effectiveness rates to prevent pregnancy, and the benefits and challenges of using each method. Participants may engage in live case-based discussions to learn how to read the charts of various FABMs.
|CME Part B||$397.00|
In Part B, Special Topics in FABMs for Helping Couples Achieve or Avoid Pregnancy, participants can further their knowledge on the subject of fertility awareness and its applications in family planning. Part B will focus on the role of FABMs to address infertility and early pregnancy loss, and on the availability of apps marketed to help people avoid pregnancy. Learners may participate in case-based discussions that explore the medical applications of FABMs, including their role in addressing infertility and other conditions.
|CME Part C||$397.00|
In Part C, FABMs for Restorative Reproductive Medicine and at Various Stages of Life, participants will learn how internal hormone shifts result in observable external signs, or biomarkers, that women can learn to use to chart their cycles and monitor their health. Participants will learn how medical professionals trained in restorative reproductive medicine can use this information to care for women in a more comprehensive way. We will also discuss how FABMs can be used throughout a woman’s reproductive life, from adolescence and the postpartum period to perimenopause.
|CME Part D||$397.00|
In Part D, Medical Applications of FABMs, participants will connect the science of endocrinology to core concepts of FABMs, which may be used to diagnose and manage common women’s health conditions, including abnormal uterine bleeding, endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and premenstrual syndrome (PMS). They will learn how FABMs are used to monitor women’s health and facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of various women’s medical conditions, and how these methods empower a woman to understand her body and physiology better.
|CME Part E||$397.00|
In Part E, Medical Applications of FABMs Part II, participants will gain a greater understanding of the common female health conditions that can impact fertility and the female cycle. Content will emphasize the ways in which a functional medicine approach can be used to find the root cause of symptoms and work toward their alleviation.
|CME Part F||$397.00|
In Part F, Fertility Awareness and FemTech participants will obtain an overview of the technology available to track the female cycle and gain critical thinking skills that will allow them to evaluate app quality. Participants will also learn how such apps can be integrated into the clinical setting, and how to discuss their usage with female patients of all ages.
|CME Part G||$397.00|
In Part G, Lifestyle and Fertility, participants will learn how aspects of nutrition, obesity and weight, exercise and physical activity, sleep and limiting certain environmental exposures can affect menstrual cycle patterns and fertility, as well as all play a role in overall health. While much of conventional medicine focuses on treating diseases, this content will emphasize finding the root cause of symptoms and working toward their alleviation through dietary and lifestyle assessment and interventions.
|CME Part H||$397.00|
In Part H, RRM and Medical Applications, participants will dive deeper into the broader medical application and integration of FABMS through Restorative Reproductive Medicine (RRM). Content will focus on identifying and correcting underlying causes and factors contributing to sub-fertility/infertility, recurrent miscarriage, and reproductive dysfunction. Clinical research and outcomes of RRM for the treatment of infertility and recurrent miscarriage are reviewed as well as an introduction to current and future research. Learners may participate in case-based discussions that further explore the medical applications of RRM.
