How it works

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.
