Fertility Friday | Fertility Awareness Mastery for Women's Health Professionals

Are you ready to uplevel your women's health practice? Welcome to the Fertility Friday Podcast! A podcast designed to empower you to use fertility awareness both personally and professionally. If you are a woman's health professional — and you’re not fully utilizing the menstrual cycle as a vital sign — it's time to change that right away! Through evidence-based literature reviews, engaging discussions, expert interviews, and compelling client stories, Lisa Hendrickson-Jack, FAE, HRHP covers everything from complex menstrual cycle chart interpretation and balancing hormones to overcoming fertility challenges and more. With over 20 years of experience teaching fertility awareness, Lisa combines her real-world expertise with the latest research to ensure you're fully equipped to support your clients. Lisa's first book, "The Fifth Vital Sign," describes the menstrual cycle as an important vital sign we should pay attention to. Her most recent book, "Real Food for Fertility" (co-authored with Lily Nichols, RDN), explores how a healthy menstrual cycle sets the stage for a healthy pregnancy. With well over 4 million downloads, Fertility Friday is the #1 source for information about fertility awareness and menstrual cycle health. All women deserve to understand how their bodies work, and if we wait for our education systems to do it we may be waiting forever. It's up to us to be the change we wish to see in the field of women's health. In other words, It's YOUR TURN to bring this essential information to your clients sooner rather than later — they need it now!

Today I am sharing a controversial episode that questions the role men could play in birth control. Definitely an interesting topic considering that women are typically burdened with the responsibility of preventing pregnancy! Today’s episode is sponsored by the Fertility Awareness Mastery Online Self-Study Course.  The most in-depth and comprehensive online fertility awareness self-study program available. Click here to join now!

Topics discussed in today's episode:

  • What is Lisa’s take on the controversial article that came out on birth control and responsibility of men in pregnancy
  • What if women and men both took 100% of the responsibility of pregnancy
  • Why Lisa believes it truly is a privilege to be able to ejaculate inside a woman’s body
  • There is no birth control method that is 100% effective
  • How the pill has set up the expectation that having sex is different from having sex for pregnancy
  • What if men were expected to take full responsibility of pregnancy?
  • Why Lisa believes no one should have the blame put on them, but everyone should be more educated on what can happen when you have unprotected sex or get pregnant
  • The importance of couples or sexual partners to have conversations about sex, their preferred form of birth control and pregnancy
  • Is the withdraw method effective?
