Rock your birth control … naturally.

Are you:

Amy_Sedgwick.jpg
  • Fed up with popping pills to suppress your fertility?
  • Tired of birth control methods that are inconsistent with your values?
  • Sick of suffering with side effects of hormonal contraceptives – like moodiness, low libido, and weight gain?
  • Wanting to preserve your fertility so that when you choose to start a family you will have an easier time conceiving?
  • Aspiring to find a REAL solution to your period problems, rather than simply masking the symptoms?

If you’ve said yes to ANY of the above questions you are certainly not alone.

I’ve personally coached hundreds of women and connected with thousands more . . . and the question I am continually asked is:

“How can I find a birth control method that is effective, convenient, and won’t harm my health or long-term fertility?”

And the answer is through adopting a Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) like the Justisse Method of Fertility Management. The method is over 99% effective when used correctly, and not only preserves your health and fertility but enhances it by pointing you towards your own health needs and providing a means of monitoring improvement.

How do I know? I was blessed to discover the Justisse Method of Fertility Management in early 2006 and have effectively avoided conception ever since.

When I first began using the Justisse Method my cycles were a mess – I had severe menstrual pain, chronic vaginal discharge, and erratic cycles that would sometimes disappear all together. In addition I had a plethora of health problems including low thyroid function, food allergies, fatigue, back pain and mood instability. Despite having been a long-time birth control pill user I was also chronically worried about getting pregnant.

Through learning the Justisse Method I not only took control of my birth control naturally, I learned how to identify and address hypothyroidism and adrenal fatigue. I eliminated food allergies, cleared up my digestion, and stabilized my moods.

After enrolling in an intense private training program to learn how to teach this method to others, I became certified as a Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner through Justisse Healthworks for Women and began teaching women to adopt natural birth control. I quit my job as an Occupational Therapist and devoted my life’s work to empowering women to take control of their health, happiness and fertility.

Here is what I now know and can share with you . . .

The truth about women and fertility management:

  1. Using scientifically proven signs of female fertility, you will learn to chart exactly which days you are fertile or infertile (on average 3-7 days of your cycle).
  2. Once you have identified your fertile days, you will choose how you wish to treat those days. For optimal efficacy you will abstain from vaginal penetration on those fertile days. However, if you are comfortable with some risk you may choose to use other methods of contraception on your fertile days, such as condoms, cervical caps, or withdrawal.
  3. On the days prior to ovulation, you can engage in unprotected intercourse* in the evenings after you have confirmed the day is infertile using your Justisse techniques.
  4. On the days following ovulation, you can engage in unprotected intercourse* at any time throughout the day.
  5. Using the information about ovulation, menstruation, and fertile signs from your Justisse chart you can also assess and monitor the progress of your reproductive health, trouble-shooting for common menstrual problems such as cramps, PMS, migraines, low energy and irregular cycles.

* The Justisse Method of Fertility Management does not protect against STIs.

“This sounds like exactly what I have been looking for. Why have I never heard of it before?”

Women and men are often skeptical to try this method because they feel like if was really that great they would have heard about it before. Understandable! There are three reasons why this method is not better known and more widely used:

  1. It is only in the past half century that our scientific understanding of fertility and ovulation has been refined enough to develop a system for tracking it. Fertility Awareness Methods like the Justisse Method are relatively young on the scene compared with condoms and cervical caps which have been around for hundreds of years.
  2. Because Fertility Awareness Methods like Justisse are about providing education, rather than a product to buy, this method is of little interest to the pharmaceutical or manufacturing companies that produce contraceptives. In fact, FAM serves to undermine the profit-making capacity of these companies so it is in their interest for you NOT to know about them.
  3. FAM is often confused with the Rhythm Method – a precursor to fertility awareness that presumes regular cycles and has efficacy rates in the 70-80% range. Because of this, people often dismiss FAM as ineffective, even though the two methods are very different and FAM methods such as the Justisse Method have proven to be 99% effective in preventing pregnancy.

Client Success Story

"This course has been helpful and empowering. Before beginning this process, I was unknowingly in the dark. Not any more! I feel so much more in tune with my body and with my husband. We are confidently charting and practicing the method, as well as enjoying a fulfilling sex life, without fear of becoming pregnant. I feel that when the time is right to become pregnant, will will be more confident in our path as well. Thank you, for your confidence in the method and your teacher's heart."

How much time does it take to learn?

The time it takes for a woman to feel comfortable and confident relying on natural birth control varies greatly based on a number of factors including:

  • The health of her menstrual cycle
  • Learning style and aptitude for picking up new information
  • Overall feelings of trust/distrust of her body
  • Degree of support (partner, health professionals, friends, etc.)

In general, we recommend that women and couples do not rely on fertility awareness for at least the first three months of charting. Some women may be ready at this time to use their charts contraceptively, others may need several more months to hone their skills and develop comfort.

You will need to devote an initial 3-4 hours to learning the basic material. After that, daily time commitments for using the method will range from 5-15 minutes per day depending on your stage of learning and proficiency.

You will also need to set aside some time for private appointments to have your charts reviewed. You may also choose to increase your learning through time on group calls and in dialogue with other Justisse users via social media.

When I was on the pill I experienced mood swings, yeast infections, dryness and reduced libido. Since beginning work with Amy and learning the Justisse Method I have developed a complete understanding of my reproductive cycle and have successfully prevented pregnancy for the past year. I am grateful to Amy and the Justisse Method for helping me develop a sense of empowerment and agency over my body. 

"You have two other similar programs. How do I know which one is right for me?"

The Eco-Contraception Program is our most popular program.

This is because it:

  • provides all the elements necessary for you to have a successful birth control experience
  • maintains a low monthly cost thanks to automated and group elements
  • contains a social element that allows you to give and receive feedback from other women utilizing the Justisse Method
  • contains all the elements of the Green Your Birth Control in 30 Days program while providing the additional benefit of personalized and professional feedback to help gain confidence and proficiency quickly
  • enables partners to be more involved in the process if they wish (partners are encouraged to attend private sessions)
  • offers the opportunity to learn about the role of nutrition in detoxifying from the pill and maintaining optimal hormonal health

This program is good for those who:

  • are ready to commit to learning, mastering and applying the Justisse Method of Fertility Management
  • know they have, or anticipate having, irregular cycles
  • intend to use the Justisse Method as their primary form of contraception
  • are clear that they do not wish to get pregnant right now
  • learn better through auditory, group, or private instruction
  • would benefit from ongoing accountability
  • are planning to, or have recently come off hormonal contraception

"I have a partner who's skeptical. What can I tell him to try to get him on board?"

Although this is a generalization, men typically rely on facts and science more than women do when they are making decisions. It will likely help for you to explain that in 2007 a large research study was conducted in Europe that followed the outcome of 900 women who were using a fertility awareness method nearly identical to the Justisse Method. What they found was that the method was 98.4% effective. When they corrected for the fact that a couple of women had made errors in their charts, the method efficacy rose to 99.4%. Contrast this with the fact that condoms have a typical use efficacy rate of only 85% according to the World Health Organization.

Point out that it is natural to be afraid of what we don't understand. Encourage your partner to become involved in the process and learn as much as possible. There are many ways that they can be involved, including listening to the audio instruction with you, attending your private appointments together, and even charting together at the end of the day. I even had a client once whose partner sent me photos of her cervical mucus by phone to ask me how they should chart it! 


Client Success Story

I had been prescribed the birth control pill as both an oral contraceptive and as a preventative treatment for the debilitating migraines I had struggled with since my early 20s.  We thought it was working until I ended up in an ambulance with a migraine that mirrored a stroke - I thought I was going to die that day.  After my neurologist told me I had to get off of birth control for the first time in 13 years I found my way to the Red Tent Sisters.  Through the Justisse program and the amazing help of the sisters I am migraine free, more body aware, having a more fulfilling sex life (birth control destroyed my libido) and making conscious choices about my fertility.  Thanks Red Tent Sisters!
