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 very effectively
The guidelines that we teach are up to 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
With self-awareness practices that can foster more positive experiences and personalised understanding of the menstrual cycle
*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
