Your body is an open book

Learn how to read it today


Body literacy is:

  • The self-knowledge needed to make fully informed contraceptive choices

  • The ability to read bodily signs associated with the menstrual cycle

    • These signs can provide health insights and be used to avoid pregnancy without hormonal contraception

    • The guidelines that we teach can be 99.6% effective with perfect use & 98.2% effective with typical use*

  • An invitation to take a critical look at the stories that our culture tells about our bodies

 

*These rates are from a moderate quality study and should be interpreted with caution - our forthcoming materials will provide an overview of the evidence base for various fertility awareness-based methods (including the double-check sympto-thermal guidelines that we teach) - in the meantime you can find more details about the quality and extent of the evidence base here


The Body Literacy Collective is a UK non-profit

WE’RE PREPARING TO OFFER:

  • A practical guide to understanding your cycles

  • A super versatile charting app - pre-release offer is available now here!

  • Short, illustrated videos covering all aspects of the sympto-thermal fertility awareness method

  • Affordable workshops & consultations

  • Community events
