Natural Fertility Management is the safest and most empowering method of natural contraception currently available. The program teaches you to understand and cooperate with your fertility cycles through observing body signs such as cervical mucus and basal body temperature and combining this knowledge with your personal bio-rhythmic lunar cycle.
Natural Fertility Management can be used by all women, whether or not their cycles are regular, and at any stage of their fertile life. All that is required is motivation and a healthy curiosity about your own body.
These methods, combined and refined by Francesca Naish since 1975, have assisted many thousands of women and couples with their fertility management and are used by increasing numbers of health professionals throughout Australia and internationally.
Natural contraception is appropriate for all women or couples, whatever their previous contraception program. For those coming off the Contraceptive Pill, there will be a period of adjustment assisted with treatment by natural therapies as your body returns to a natural cycle. In most cases this adjustment will be achieved within the first three months. After this initial period, most women and couples will feel confident in their use of the methods, though support is always available.

“I have been using natural fertility management for over a year now very successfully, and, I may add, with much pleasure. I have learned to understand and enjoy all the aspects of my cycle. I feel more in touch with my body, more confident and empowered around my sexuality and fertility as I now know exactly when I can conceive and when I can’t. I can’t thank you enough.”
