The Sympto-Pro Method (5)

What is SymptoPro?

SymptoPro™ is a Sympto-Thermal method of Natural Family Planning, provided by Northwest Family Services. Northwest Family Services has been providing quality Fertility Education for over 30 years. Their program, SymptoPro™, is an effective, scientifically based method of natural family planning that treats fertility as a normal, healthy process. It is based on the research of Dr. Josef Roetzer.

How does is work?

Observations
SymptoPro™ is a Sympto-Thermal method of NFP based on changes in a woman’s cervical mucus, waking or resting temperature, and cervix (optional).

Mucus: The woman performs a tissue observation before and after every voiding, observing the qualities of any mucus present. Additionally, she is aware of her vaginal sensations throughout the day.

symptopro-symbolsTemperature: The woman takes her temperature upon waking every day.

Cervix: An optional sign, some women find this additional information helpful. A cervical check may be performed at the end of every day, tracking the changes of the cervix itself.

For an extra 2-5 minutes per day, a couple can discover an accurate picture of the woman’s cycles, which allows them to making family planning decisions about whether to abstain during the possibly fertile time or take advantage of that time to achieve a pregnancy. Additionally, these observations provide crucial health information for those having difficulty achieving.

Charting
At the end of the day, the morning temperature is noted. Additionally noted are any fertile signs both seen (by tissue) and felt (by sensation). Traits/comments may be used to help round out the picture of the cycle. The couple then learns through personal instruction how to interpret the changes to find the fertile/infertile times of the cycle.

Technology
All clients are offered an online charting program. It allows:

  • Ease of charting: Either you or your spouse can access your online chart to enter daily observations. This allows ease of charting while traveling, as well as ease of charting on mobile devices, such as a laptop or tablet.
  • Ease of chart sharing with your SymptoPro™ Instructor: sending your chart to your instructor is as easy as the click of a button!

 

Is is effective?

SymptoPro™ can be highly effective for couples who are avoiding or achieving a pregnancy. Couples who are taught well, understand the method, are clear about their family planning intention, and carefully follow all the rules for avoiding a pregnancy all the time will experience a 98 to 99.9 percent effectiveness rate. Couples who occasionally do not follow all the rules for avoiding a pregnancy will most likely experience a pregnancy rate similar to condoms and other barrier methods of family planning.

Who can use SymptoPro?

SymptoPro™ is highly effective and appropriate for couples trying to conceive as well as those who need to avoid pregnancy. It offers a number of symptoms and charting options that give a great deal of flexibility in applying it reliably to the unique individual.

SymptoPro™ Providers are trained to handle a wide range of special circumstances including breastfeeding, premenopause, discontinuing hormonal contraceptives, long cycles, continuous mucus, etc . Clients are encouraged to contact their provider during any change in reproductive status, or any time there is a question. Medical assistance is encouraged when appropriate. Providers themselves may always take advantage of consultation with their supervisor when needed.
