What is the Sympto-Thermal Method?

The Sympto-Thermal Method is a fertility awareness based method of natural birth control that allows women to prevent pregnancy with up to 99.6% efficacy by tracking cervical fluid changes, temperature shifts, and subtle changes in cervix position and texture.

The Sympto-Thermal Method is also used to help women conceive by accurately identifying their fertile window, uncovering potential cycle imbalances, & enhancing chances of achieving pregnancy when ready.

Here's how it works...

- Cervical Fluid - 

The sympto-thermal method uses cervical fluid tracking to identify the opening of one's fertile window based on the transition from dry to the wetter and slippery types of cervical fluid that are produced leading up to ovulation. Users are taught how to distinguish between fertile, less fertile, and infertile cervical fluid types and use the information to avoid unprotected intercourse in the presence of fertile and less fertile type fluid leading up to ovulation. Users of this method also learn how to recognize their cervical fluid peak day and return to infertility following ovulation.

** This information is also taught to women trying to conceive to help them identify their fertile window and utilize fertile cervical fluid days for conception.

- Basal Body Temperature - 

The sympto-thermal method uses basal body temperature tracking to identify the bi-phasic nature of temperature throughout the menstrual cycle and locate the thermal shift that occurs following ovulation as a result of post-ovulatory progesterone production. Users are taught how to identify their high temperature days following ovulation and close their fertile window within several days of ovulation. This allows them to enter their post-ovulatory definitely infertile phase following ovulation until menstruation begins again.

** This information is also taught to women trying to conceive to help them identify if their luteal phase is long enough to support implantation. This information is also helpful for women trying to achieve pregnancy because many are under the misguided notion that one should concentrate intercourse to the day of temperature rise, which, is likely too late.

- Cervix Position & Texture - 

The sympto-thermal method uses the natural changes in cervix position and texture throughout the menstrual cycle to confirm the opening and closing of the fertile window, as well as what is being seen with cervical fluid and temperature. Users are taught how to manually check the cervix and how to recognize when the cervix is in its high, soft, and open position leading up to ovulation, as well as when the cervix is in its low, firm, and closed position during infertile phases of the cycle.

When learned from a trained instructor, like us here at Sauvage Wellness, the Sympto-Thermal Method has been proven to be up to 99.6% effective with proper use at preventing unintended pregnancy!
