Fertility Awareness Method - Birth Control for Smart People

What is the fertility awareness method (FAM)?  This is a practice that involves tracking different fertile signs as they change with the cycle to determine the fertile and infertile phases of your menstrual cycle. The main signs to pay attention to are cervical mucus, the basal body temperature (BBT) and the cervical position.  As we start to track our cycle we begin to get a picture of what is happening to our bodies on a hormonal level!
