In today’s episode I share the honest truth about using fertility awareness for birth control, and what are the main reasons why women get pregnant (user failure) when using the method. I share what you need to know in order for this method to work for you, and it’s more than simply “follow the rules”. I know you’ll appreciate this episode, because it’s the stuff no one talks about.
