Conferences and Events
Proven science and personal stories – presented through real life examples that made the information relatable. I enjoyed all parts of this day – very interesting!23 year-old Medical Student
Throughout the year, FACTS hosts and presents at a number of conferences and events. Each is designed to further our mission of sharing the science supporting fertility awareness based methods (FABMs) with wider medical and general audiences. Many events offer CME credit for medical professionals. In some cases, scholarships may be available for students and discounts are available for paid FACTS members who wish to attend. FACTS also offers trained speakers – available nationwide – who are able to travel to your school, group, or organization to present on a wide variety of topics in fertility awareness.

Precision Women’s Health
Modern Fertility Awareness for Family Planning and Women’s Health
We enjoyed great success in Cleveland and Indianapolis earlier this year and are looking forward to our last one-day conference of 2019 – Please Join us in Dallas this fall and enhance your knowledge of fertility awareness, connect with your medical colleagues, and expand your clinical toolbox!
Over the past 50 years, significant innovations have been made in women’s healthcare, particularly within the realm of reproductive science. Parallel to these advances, natural methods for monitoring the female cycle have been standardized and refined based on ongoing research. This has led to modern, evidence-based fertility awareness based methods (FABMs). Unfortunately, the overwhelming majority of physicians are not familiar with FABMs, how their effectiveness rates compare to OCPs, and how the information recorded on women’s charts can aid in the diagnosis and management of common women’s health concerns. To address this knowledge gap FACTS is presenting a series of conferences designed to equip medical and health professionals to offer more holistic healthcare options for women.
The 2019 FACTS Annual Meeting
Fertility Awareness and Fem-Tech: Synergy for the 21st Century
Fem-tech (or Female technology) refers to the use of technology in women’s health. More than ever, women are interested in understanding and tracking their cycle to better monitor and manage their health. What do fertility awareness based methods (FABMs) have to contribute to the fem-tech explosion? The ability to track and analyze data is just the first step. We need medical professionals that have the training necessary to interpret and leverage this data to optimize women’s health. Although interest in fertility awareness and “fem-tech” is spreading like a wild fire, the overwhelming majority of medical professionals are not well-informed about the basics of fertility awareness based methods (FABMs) and the technology that can facilitate tracking the female cycle.
This year’s FACTS Annual Meeting will combine the science behind FABMs with practical applications made possible by fem-tech. Combining fertility awareness with new technologies (in the form of apps, online platforms, and more!) holds tremendous promise for women and couples—both for family planning and reproductive health.
