What would our society look like if males and females of all ages understood the basics of fertility? What if growing up we were taught truths instead of lies about sex and pregnancy? We have to start somewhere so this episode is for anyone who doesn’t yet know the ABC’s of how to track and understand fertility. I’m joined by birth worker and science nerd Jessica Austin from Vancouver, Canada who goes through the simple steps of how to use FAM to both conceive a child and to not conceive a child. I do want to note that we do not discuss STD’s in this episode, Fertility Awareness Method is simply a tracking method to understand when a woman is fertile and when she is not. It does not in any way protect people from sexually transmitted diseases. FAM should be used in alliance with proper STI screenings and communication with partners.
