Fertility is a normal, healthy physiologic state. Women’s hormonal cycles determine the fertile window when a couple will most likely conceive. An understanding of the cycle and recognition of the external signs that determine each phase has led to the development of more environmentally friendly and highly effective forms of family planning. Despite these advances, there is limited information about fertility awareness based methods (FABMs) being taught in medical school and residency and the majority of health professionals are trained to approach fertility as a disease state.
Dr. Marguerite Duane discussed all the options available to physicians when counseling patients on family planning options on our national webcast last week. Her discussion was very interactive with numerous medical professionals and medical students participating. If you missed it you can replay the webcast here.
