Fertility Awareness can be trickier when you're travelling, but it is possible! Here are five ways to make it work.
Practicing Fertility Awareness when you're away from home can come with unique challenges. Your sleep schedule may be erratic, a change in climate may throw off your BBT, and you won't necessarily have access to toilet paper. So is it still possible to chart your cycle? And if so, how effectively?
The answer is yes! However, you will likely need to make a few adjustments to your usual routine and employ some special rules in order to still rely on it for effective contraception. In today's episode of Red Tent Sisters TV we share:
- A third way to chart your cycle that won't be affected by the unique conditions of travel
- The MOST important charting rule to remember when away from home
- How timezones can affect BBT
- What we suggest stashing in your purse
- Why charting apps can be problematic (and what to use instead)
