Fertility Awareness Based Methods (FABMs) for Family Planning and Restorative Reproductive Women’s Healthcare

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. 

Overall Course Goals

Upon completion of the course, you will be able to discuss each fertility awareness-based method (FABM) with confidence in a way that is understandable to patients new to FABMs and those who may already be familiar with these methods. Additionally, you will be able to:

  1. Describe the key hormonal changes of the female cycle and how they produce physical signs, or biomarkers, that women can learn to observe and track to monitor their health, plan their families, and address a range of medical issues.
  2. Learn to read the female cycle chart and how to identify potential days of fertility as well as abnormalities that may signal specific medical conditions.


The course is divided into four parts. You are currently enrolled in Part B, Special Topics in FABMs for Helping Couples Achieve or Avoid Pregnancy. If you would like to sign up for additional parts of this course, please click here to learn more.

There will be a special focus on the role of FABMs in addressing infertility,  early pregnancy loss, and the availability of apps marketed to help people avoid pregnancy.  Enrollees may participate in case-based discussions that explore the medical applications of FABMs, including their role in addressing infertility and other conditions.
