There are times in our lives when there is a need to avoid becoming pregnant; when times like these occur, couples look to family planning methods to aid them. People are often aware of artificial means such as condoms, hormonal contraceptives, and IUDs, but there are natural options!

The Symptothermal Method

Serena teaches the Symptothermal Method of Natural Family Planning. When taught properly and used consistently, a couple has a greater than 99% chance to postpone pregnancy. The Symptothermal method works in harmony with the woman’s body. It is as effective as artificial methods of family planning but without the side effects.

Some reasons people are motivated to use this method include:

Women’s Health concerns about the ways that hormone interventions can create health issues for women,

Healthy Planet – environmental waste (products and hormones in the water system),

Mutual Respect – shared responsibility and mutual respect in a couple for family planning and fertility management, and

Culture and Spirituality – moral, cultural or spiritual/religious reasons.

Using the Symptothermal Method is a natural way to avoid pregnancy that does not harm the woman, the environment, or the couple. Besides being an effective way to postpone pregnancy, practicing the Symptothermal Method, is beneficial to the you as a couple.

To practice the Symptothermal Method effectively, it is important to receive proper training from a certified teacher-couple. Locate a teaching session
