Sympto-Thermal Method (www.symptopro.org)

 

No longer “guess work,” SymptoPro™ Fertility Education is an effective, scientifically based method of Natural Family Planning that treats fertility as a normal, healthy process. SymptoPro™ is a Sympto-Thermal Method of Fertility Education based on changes in a woman’s cervical mucus, waking or resting temperature, and cervix. These observable signs change in response to the hormones of the menstrual cycle. It only takes seconds a day for a woman to track her fertility; then the couple interprets the chart and makes a decision based on their family planning intention. SymptoPro™ works through periodic abstinence during the method-defined fertile time for couples who are avoiding a pregnancy. SymptoPro™ can be used effectively throughout a woman’s entire reproductive life. Regular cycles are NOT required. SymptoPro™ is NOT Calendar Rhythm.

Our particular strengths lie in the highly personal support that each couple receives when they take instruction from us. Whether they take an in-person or online class, each couple is paired with a certified instructor to answer any questions, check their understanding, and review their personal charting. Our instructors are equipped to handle any special circumstance, including postpartum, approaching menopause, or coming off of hormonal birth control. We teach detailed, objective markers that are both easy to chart and come with highly effective guidelines. To learn more about how to sign up for a class and what the process is like, go here.
