WHAT IS SymptoPro™?
SymptoPro™ Fertility Education is an approach of Natural Family Planning that uses the symptothermal method of tracking a woman's natural biomarkers. Biomarkers include basal body temperature, sensation, and cervical mucus observation.
When rules are followed correctly while working with an instructor, Symptopro is 99% effective at avoiding pregnancy. The great thing about NFP is that not only does it allow couples to avoid pregnancy, it also allows couples the ability to achieve or postpone pregnancy. Cycle-tracking should be thought of at a 5th vital sign for women because it provides a wealth of information. Charting these biomarkers can also help to diagnose health issues.
WORKS ACROSS THE LIFESPAN
SymptoPro works through periodic abstinence during the method-defined fertile time for couples who are avoiding pregnancy and can be used effectively throughout a woman’s entire reproductive life.
WHAT IF MY CYCLES AREN'T REGULAR?
Regular cycles are NOT required. SymptoPro is not the rhythm method and can be used effectively for women who have PCOS, endometriosis, and pre-menopause, as well as women who are breastfeeding or have irregular cycles. NFP can also be used to help women trying to achieve pregnancy by determining when individualized peak fertility through charting.
The Symptothermal Rule for determining the Completely Infertile Time was researched in 1951 by Dr. Joseph Roetzer and was found to be 99% effective for avoiding pregnancy.
