In participants' discussion of fertility awareness methods, comments on the risks outnumbered comments on the benefits.
The Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) [13] is "based on observing and interpreting scientifically proven signs of fertility to prevent or achieve pregnancy and monitor your reproductive health." By monitoring cervical mucus and ovulation cycles, women determine their fertility at different times during their cycles, supplementing during fertile times with barrier methods (condoms) and spermicide.
Natural fertility awareness methods such as Standard Days Method (SDM) have proven to be effective.
