FERTILITY EDUCATION & MEDICAL MANAGEMENT (FEMM)

FEMM is a comprehensive women’s health program aimed at teaching women the link between their hormones, health, and fertility. FEMM accomplishes this through teaching women about their bodies, charting their monthly cycles, and recognizing hormonal and other vital signs of health.

The FEMM method consists of 4 individual education sessions. By the end of the sessions you will be able to:

Understand how your hormones influence your health.

Recognize and chart your hormonal activity.

Identify healthy patterns or health problems.

Learn how to manage your fertility.

Utilize FEMM to avoid or achieve pregnancy.

FAQs

How does FEMM work?

Charting your ovulatory cycle can help you better recognize hormonal biomarkers and other vital signs of health. By understanding your body, you can identify normal or abnormal hormonal patterns and connect the dots between symptoms and lifestyle factors that are contributing to (or taking away from) your overall health and well-being.

Who can benefit from FEMM?

The FEMM method is applicable to all women from puberty to menopause. Whether your cycle is regular or irregular, FEMM can be utilized to gain a better understanding of your health, as well as a Fertility Awareness Method to avoid or achieve pregnancy.

Why is FEMM important?

As women, we deserve to understand our bodies in order to make informed medical choices and decisions that align with our health and well-being. Since your cycle reflects your hormones and overall health, it can be a powerful tool to bring to your doctor if you are having a health issue or are trying to conceive. FEMM’s goal is to “empower women in the achievement of their health and reproductive goals by helping them gain a better understanding of their biology and monthly cycles.”

How can FEMM help me avoid or achieve pregnancy?

There are only a handful of days that conception is possible each cycle. Through charting the ovulatory cycle and monitoring her reproductive hormones, a woman can identify her times of fertility and infertility throughout the cycle. This allows a couple to know when to time intercourse appropriately to achieve their fertility goals.

Will FEMM work for me if I have irregular cycles?

YES! In fact, charting your cycle is ENCOURAGED in women with irregular cycles. This may be a sign of an underlying health issue, and it can be a powerful tool to bring to your doctor to get to the root of the problem.

Can FEMM help me if I'm experiencing hormone related symptoms?

While contraceptives are used to treat common issues related to womens cycles, it is not miracle pill that will fix the root of underlying issues. A woman’s cycle is often affected when there is a hormonal imbalance, which is why women should allow it to become their biggest advocate when they are experiencing any major concerns. The following symptoms could be indicators of a hormone imbalance:

  • Infertility
  • Bloating
  • Weight gain
  • Breast tenderness
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Headaches
  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • Food cravings
  • Acne
  • Painful periods
  • Irregular cycles
  • Insomnia
  • Excessive fatigue
  • Mood swings

Can I work with you if I don't live in the same city?

Yes! I offer 1:1 courses in person or via online platform.
