Natural Family Planning CM-BBT at UPMC Mercy

Description

The Natural Family Planning CM-BBT Program is a scientifically based, medical program designed for couples who wish to postpone, avoid or achieve pregnancy naturally. 

This method compliments the unique design and function of the human reproductive system. During this three hour class, you will learn how to observe, chart and interpret the woman’s cervical mucus signs and basal body temperature.You will learn the guidelines to determine the fertility of each day of the menstrual cycle. This information allows you to make informed decisions regarding the timing of intercourse, based on your family planning motivation. This method is extremely reliable when used consistently and according to the guidelines. 

During the training period, you will record and self-interpret your cycle, then submit it for interpretation by a trained CM-BBT Professional. The goal of the Natural Family Planning CM-BBT Program is for couples to become independent in the use of the method, which most are able to achieve within a year. 

CM-BBT has been used successfully by women who are breastfeeding, postpartum and formula feeding, have irregular cycles, are experiencing signs of perimenopause, or simply desire to increase their body awareness.

Natural Family Planning does not provide protection from sexually transmitted infections, HIV or AIDS. 

Engaged couples are encouraged to attend the session 3-6 months before their wedding, when possible. For couples who wish to use this method following the birth of a baby, class attendance is recommended 4-8 weeks prior to your due date. The cost of this program, including a booklet on Natural Family Planning CM-BBT, a thermometer, charts, and the interpretation service is $125.00 for the woman. The man is strongly encouraged to attend (at no additional cost), but his attendance is not mandatory.
