For many women preventing pregnancy can be stressful, especially when you do not want to use hormonal birth control or an IUD. The good news is you can prevent pregnancy naturally without using birth control that is harmful to you. One way to do that is using the Fertility Awareness Method. It may seem overwhelming at first, but once you get in the groove of understanding your body and using the rules it is a piece of pie. Here is a great guide for knowing what type of cervical mucus you are experiencing.
I would recommend using a Basal Body Thermometer with a back light. Here is the thermometer I personally use. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KG9MNYZ/ref=dp_prsubs_1 Chart your temps and cervical mucus using the Fertility Friend App. This is a free app you can use on your phone or computer. I have been using this particular app for years and it is the easiest to read and the most reliable. There are other apps, however I do not recommend them. Keep in mind its important to track your cycle 2-3 months before solely using the Fertility Awareness Method. Using this method has a 2% failure rate just like a condom, however if you refrain from having sex during your fertile phase that % decreases to .4%. Woohoo!
Here is my personal chart you can use as a guide. I have all rules labeled. I'm a total visual person so I hope this helps you!
