About This Project
Fertility awareness-based methods (FABM) are a group of family planning methods that teach women how to identify their fertile and infertile days in each menstrual cycle. They can use this information to time intercourse to achieve or delay a pregnancy. The Billings Ovulation Method® is a cervical mucus FABM and this project aims to understand the beliefs, attitudes, experiences and behaviors from users. By doing focus groups we are aiming to improve program development and delivery.
