Why did I choose to become a fertility awareness educator?
Fertility awareness is the sex education I wish I learned in middle school.
When women actually learn how their fertility works, they learn that getting pregnant is not as easy as the drop of a hat. We learn to appreciate and live with rather than work against our fertility.
Almost every person who I’ve seen read #takingchargeofyourfertility or take a FAM class comes out of the experience saying, “Why have I not always known this information? I wish I could have known this when I was younger!” Learning fertility awareness changed my life, and I know it can change yours too.
Do I believe FAM is the right method of birth control for every woman?
No, it is probably not.
But I do believe that every woman should be taught how to understand her own body. What she does with that information is up to her.
Fertility awareness gave me the ability to avoid pregnancy on my own terms. It gave my spouse more knowledge about my body and the changes I experience during my cycle. It has strengthened my relationship in more ways than I can name.
If you want to learn FAM, I suggest getting an instructor. Check out this website for a list of instructors.
