No side-effects or long-term health risks
Hormonal methods of contraception can cause breast tenderness, nausea, headaches, breakthrough bleeding, weight gain, mood changes and loss of libido. They can also increase the risk of heart attack for women who smoke, or who have cardiovascular problems or high blood pressure.
Oestrogen-progestogen oral contraceptives (combined) have been classified by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as Group 1 carcinogens. That means they are known to be carcinogenic to humans.

For all stages of reproductive life
Every woman is unique, and your menstrual cycle and patterns of fertility and infertility are as unique as you are. It doesn’t matter if your cycles are short, average or long, or if they vary in length from one cycle to the next. You may be breastfeeding or approaching menopause. Whatever your stage of reproductive life the Billings Ovulation Method® will help you to understand your fertility on a daily basis.
Simple to use
There are just 4 simple rules of the Billings Ovulation Method™. Trials by the World Health Organisation have shown that over 90% of women can identify the fertile phase and the Peak of fertility in the first month of observation and charting! It really is for every woman, everywhere!
There’s a small fee for your consultation with a Billings Ovulation Method™ teacher to learn the method. Then after that, it’s free.
Cares for the environment
Synthetic oestrogen, a common ingredient in hormonal contraception, can contaminate the environment after being carried by sewage into rivers. There are a number of studies suggesting a link between oestrogen contamination of the environment and adverse changes in male reproductive health (e.g. decline in sperm counts, increase in genital malformations, and increase in testicular and prostate cancers).
The Billings Ovulation Method™ is 100% hormone free, so it won’t contaminate the environment. And there is no packaging adding to landfill.
