Natural Contraception

Did you know your body has a built-in contraceptive method? You are not fertile everyday of your cycle and you can learn your signs of fertility! 


Our Natural Contraception course teaches a symptothermal method of fertility awareness, which has been found to be up to 99.6% effective when taught by a qualified instructor.

I really appreciate the quality of knowledge in this course. Fertility Awareness is starting to become a buzz-topic on social media in the wellness space and there is some misinformation out there. I'm really glad that I signed up for this course and have your support to help take the guess-work out of natural contraception

Detailed Information

There are several methods that fall under the umbrella term of Fertility Awareness Based Methods (FABMs). Each has its own way of identifying the fertile time in the menstrual cycle. A symptothermal method uses three bio-indicators (cervical mucous, cervical position and basal body temperature) to determine the level of fertility on any given day. This is not the rhythm method (calendar or algorithm) which uses a calculation rule to determine the fertile window.

We know that bodies are unique and cycles are not computers, which is why we need daily data when determining something as important as avoiding pregnancy!

  • We’ve been trying to conceive for a while, is this for us?"
    We recommend doing our TTC program if you have been TTC for 3 months or more, if you have a history of pregnancy loss, or if you have any major underlying health challenges that may impact fertility: PCOS, endometriosis, amenorrhea, autoimmune diseases, digestive tract issues (IBS,SIBO, leaky gut (permeable gut syndrome), etc)
  • We’re currently planning or undergoing IVF treatment, can we do this alongside?"
    Yes. This is a great accompaniment to IVF or IUI treatment to improve egg and sperm and optimise outcomes. It’s the perfect introduction to bringing some natural diet and lifestyle factors into your life if this is all new to you. We may also recommend the TTC program.
  • Do you offer continued support through pregnancy and postpartum?
    Yes. Once you’re part of our Thriving Health Community we are here to serve you through all stages of life, from menarche through motherhood and into menopause. We will also support you through any pregnancy loss that may occur.
  • I’m planning to freeze my eggs, is this for me?"
    Yes. Egg health is so essential, whatever path you are on. If you have little to no symptoms of hormonal imbalance and are on a path of natural living then this is perfect for you. If you experience more serious symptoms we may rather recommend the TTC program
