Avoiding Conception: Appointment

Want to Avoid Conception? Looking for a Natural Method of Family Planning? Nest Consulting can help.

Nest Consulting’s Natural Fertility Educator teaches individuals and couples in a programme of three – four consultations (with follow up for a year) to recognise signs of fertility via the Sympto-Thermal Method (STM). As clients become aware of their fertile and non-fertile times, ‘double check’ guidelines are taught to enable clients an informed choice of either abstaining from sex or utilising a barrier form of contraception when fertility is observed in order to avoid conception each cycle.
