The method of natural fertility awareness I teach is called the Justisse Method. It is a sympto-thermal method that uses real time information from your body to determine fertility on any given day. The Justisse Method is easy to learn, reliable for avoiding pregnancy and helpful when aiming to achieve pregnancy. It is helpful to identify normal reproductive health and reproductive health problems, infertile and fertile days, and ovulation. It does not harm your health in any way and is useful at any reproductive age. It offers an opportunity to explore new dimensions of sexuality and relationship to your body and menstrual cycle. It gives you information for sharing with health care providers, and empowers you with knowledge about your own body processes.
The Justisse Method can be tailored to your needs, whether you have regular cycles, are breastfeeding, coming off the birth control pill or other hormonal contraceptives, have reached perimenopause, have irregular or regular cycles.
I use a client-centred approach that respects individual sexual and reproductive health choices and reproductive freedom, and do not discriminate against an individual’s relationship status, sexual orientation, or sexual behaviour.
A lot of women begin learning the Justisse Method for contraception, to aid in conception or for body literacy then discover the amazing by-product of greater self awareness on much more than just the physical level.
