UK non-profit coming soon

We’re here to address system-wide gaps in reproductive health education. We provide the information & tools you need to understand your body & menstrual cycles.


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 are 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

 

we’re preparing to offer:

  • A practical guide to charting your cycles

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

  • Affordable workshops & consultations
