The Billings Ovulation Method is very successful at helping couples to achieve pregnancy naturally, even couples who thought they were infertile or who had failed attempts at IVF. Knowing how to identify your fertile time and your Peak of fertility optimises your chances of conceiving.
The Billings Ovulation Method has been subjected to more scientific research than any other method of regulating fertility. It has been independently trialled by the World Health Organisation and other reputable bodies and found to be as successful for avoiding pregnancy as any method of family planning available today.
In one of the largest trials of the Billings Ovulation Method, a 12-month multi-centre study in China, the method-related pregnancy rate was zero. The method-related rate is when couples correctly follow all the instructions for the method of birth control. The use-related pregnancy rate was 0.5%. The use-related rate includes couples who misunderstood or did not comply with all the instructions. These results make the Billings Ovulation Method™ as effective as the Pill, and more effective than IUDs, condoms and diaphragms.
Pregnancy rates with perfect use of the Billings Ovulation Method have fallen close to zero as teaching methods have been refined and updated. Continuation rates are consistently high.
