This week I spoke with Dr. Emily Kirkwold. Dr. Kirkwold discusses Natural Family Planning or Fertility awareness for those who want to learn more about their bodies. Why aren’t women taught how their cycle works and what being fertile looks like? Dr. Kirkwold gives excellent recommendations for women learning more about their bodies.
Apps that Emily Recommends
2: FEMM (don’t have to use the FEMM method to use it; gives you options for if you are tracking to avoid pregnancy, achieve pregnancy, or monitoring health)
Emily highly recommends this website to learn more about different fertility awareness methods: https://www.factsaboutfertility.org/what-is-charting/
