Fertility Awareness allows you to get in tune with your body by observing changes in your menstrual cycle and the signs of fertility such as changes in your mucus. This provides you with the tools to find your fertile days, to ensure you time intercourse correctly to get pregnant. We will also cover diet & lifestyle, sleep, exercise, stress, smoking and alcohol. These measures optimise your overall health and can reduce the time it takes to get pregnant.
Fertility Awareness also allows you to pick up any changes about your sexual and reproductive health as well as during times of stress, illness or breastfeeding. This enables you to direct any problems quickly and get help.
Fertility Awareness is scientifically based and can help to optimise your chances of pregnancy and when properly applied using a combination of fertility signs, is a highly effective method to fall pregnant (or avoid pregnancy).
Sound Easy! Do you know when you ovulate?
Maybe? Not Sure?
You are not alone!
You may have read that ovulation occurs 14 days before your period, but that is not necessarily accurate - unless your body works according to textbooks! Even if you have a regular 28 days cycle you may, in fact, ovulate before or after day 14, Your cycle may be irregular or shorter or longer than 28 days and can vary in length if you are going through a stressful time.
It is vital to know your fertile days so you can time intercourse correctly to increase your chances to get pregnant. Remember, sperm can survive up to 5 days, the egg 12-14 hours after ovulation. If you have intercourse during the five days before ovulation and on the day of ovulation you will increase your chance of getting pregnant.
This is also a good opportunity for you and your partner to improve your health before you start trying for a baby.
