Fertility Awareness-Based Methods for Family Planning

Goal: Educate health professionals so they may inform their patients about fertility awareness-based methods.
60-minute talks for medical audiences

The FABMs for Family Planning presentations will educate medical professionals and their colleagues about the science supporting FABMS and how it can be used for family planning. We have two versions of the presentation – one focuses on the use of these methods for preventing pregnancy and the other focuses on how these methods can be used to help couples achieve pregnancy, even if they may be dealing with infertility. A FACTS speaker can come to your university, office, or other location to present the most up-to-date research on fertility awareness-based methods. These talks are designed for medical audiences who may not have heard about fertility awareness-based methods or who want more information about their effectiveness rates for family planning.

Each presentation is also available to view as a live webinar. Additionally, each is approved for 1 continuing medical education (CME) credit by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP). Read here to learn additional details.

“Only 3% to 6% of physicians have accurate knowledge about the effectiveness rates of fertility awareness based methods (FABMs) of family planning.”

The Female Cycle as the 5th Vital Sign

Goal: Educate health professionals about fertility awareness-based methods and their applications for addressing women’s health.
90-minute talk for a medical audience

Did you know that women can learn to identify and chart observable external signs that reflect internal hormonal changes? This presentation is designed to highlight the health of the female cycle and how the female chart can potentially aid in the diagnosis and management of common women’s health concerns. Speakers will discuss the basic science behind fertility charting and review a variety of fertility charts, including potential indications of a woman’s health status based on what the chart reveals.

This presentation is also available to view as a live webinar. Additionally, it is approved for 1.50 continuing medical education (CME) credit by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).

“The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends using fertility awareness based charting for evaluating the menstrual cycle to assess normal development and detect irregularities.”

The Facts About Fertility Explained

Goal: Educate women and couples about FABMs and how charting can help women monitor their health and plan their families.
50 minute talk for a general audience

Would you like your patients or friends to learn the basics about the signs of fertility and their applications for women’s health and family planning? This introduction provides the perfect overview for a general audience that may have not heard about these methods and highlights how they provide a healthy alternative for family planning. Our speakers are trained to give a presentation designed for non-medical audiences.

We have two slightly different versions of the presentation – A Healthier Choice and Choosing a Method. A Healthier Choice highlights how FABMs offer a healthier alternative to conventional methods of birth control for family planning. Choosing a Method focuses more on factors women or couples may want to consider when choosing a method that is best for them.

The general presentation will cover:

• The science of charting a woman’s cycle
• The applications and benefits of using FABMs to monitor health
• The effectiveness of FABMs for family planning
• The benefits of FABMs in comparison to artificial methods of birth control

This presentation is also available to view as a live webinar.
