We recommend SymptoPro
The Sympto-Pro method instructs couples how to observe and interpret cervical fluid, basal body temperature, cervical changes and various other secondary signs. Once a couple has learned to observe these indicators, they are given rules to apply that frame the boundaries between the three phases of the cycle. Rules are recommended based on the signs that the couple observes and charts, the reproductive category that the couple is in and the couple’s intention (achieve or avoid). Both methods provide a system of feedback to the couple that helps them refine their understanding of the method.
We recommend Marquette Model
The Marquette Method of Natural Family Planning teaches couples how to track cervical fluid, temperature and cervix as well as how to monitor the underlying hormones that drive the menstrual cycle. Using the Clearblue Easy fertility monitor, the woman can determine the levels of two female hormones that are produced during the fertile window.
We recommend Creighton Model
The FertilityCareTM method teaches clients to observe and interpret the cervical fluid indicator only (ovulation model). Our diocese offers the Creighton method both in and out of a medical setting. It provides couples with a defined grading system for cervical fluids. Because of its standardization, charts tracked in this method can be used to detect underlying menstrual cycle irregularities.
