If you're interested in trying natural family planning methods, you'll need to learn how to identify your fertile days using your morning temperature, menstrual cycle length and cervical fluid or ovulation tests. You can choose to be taught how to do this by a qualified natural family planning teacher.
For the calendar method you can download fertility charts from the internet. There are also apps that can help you to record and track your menstrual cycle, these can be purchased at the app store. For the body temperature method, you’ll need to purchase a digital thermometer, or a thermometer specifically designed for natural family planning. Ear or forehead thermometers are not accurate enough for this.
