If you’ve ever thought about using FAM (Fertility Awareness Method), chances are you think about the numerous amounts of books, websites, and advice you’ve seen on how to get started.
But which is right for you? Are you someone who just wants the basics, enough to get started? Someone who wants all the details from start to finish? Are you simply interested in your health, or want to prevent pregnancy for a while until you’re ready?
Whatever the reason is, there are many resources out there to help educate you on your body and the choices you have beyond luck and birth control. Today, women are deciding to take charge of their body, to make decisions that work for them – no matter what that means.
