Avoiding Pregnancy

Understanding your fertility can help you to avoid pregnancy naturally

Meeting with an Educator

NFNZ Educators teach you to observe your own body, so that you can locate when you are fertile each cycle.  You can then chose to either abstain, or to use barriers during this time.

An educator will meet with you 3 times, and will offer:

  • 98% effective when taught by an accredited NFNZ educator
  • Evidence based Sympto-thermal Method
  • Private and personalised support for individuals and couples
  • Expertise in interpreting your unique cycle
  • Ongoing support
  • Skype Consultations (not all educators offer skype)

Why choose the Sympto-thermal Method for avoiding conception?

The Sympto-thermal method is a form of fertility awareness that combines 3 signs of fertility (cervical mucus, sensation, and basal body temperature) to establish when your fertility starts and ends each cycle.

  • It is a chemical free form of contraception
  • 98% effective when taught by an accredited NFNZ educator
  • Endorsed by the World Health Organisation
  • Does not affect your future fertility
  • Can help you to identify whether a hormonal imbalance is affecting your cycles and fertility

If you have been working with an educator, and a potential issue is identified on your chart, a report can be prepared for your GP or other healthcare professional.
