Fertility Awareness Health Benefits

 

  • Studies show, women who practice fertility awareness have stronger emotional and mental health, communication in marriage and immune systems vs. woman who take synthetic hormonal contraception.

  • Ovulating is the only way to make progesterone. Progesterone is critical for bone development, heart health, and mood stabilization. When on synthetic hormonal contraception, you don’t ovulate and therefore don’t create progesterone. 

 

  • Natural cycles free from the influence of synthetic hormones, allow reproductive tract tissues to develop and cervical mucus to do its job, all of which make women’s bodies better suited to fight infection and inflammation, improving their overall health and well-being.
