What is Natural Family Planning? Fertility awareness, more often referred to as natural family planning, is about tracking your menstrual cycle to determine the days you are fertile, have an ovulation, and can get pregnant. You also track when it is safe to have sex without getting pregnant. How does it work? There are different ways to track your menstrual cycle. To do this you have to pay very close attention to your body and its patterns. There are three methods of natural family planning: the rhythm method, symptothermal method, and the cervical mucus method. How do you use…Read More

Adolescents have a higher risk of experiencing depression. This risk decreases around 30 years old. It is important to know that there are numerous options for birth control, so if one doesn't work for…Read More

The pill is one of the most used forms of birth control by women in the US, and when taken as directed, can be over 99% effective. However, there are certain things to be aware of when on the pill. Below, are three things that can make the Pill less effective. Taking the pill at the same time every day? Whether you’re on the mini pill or the the combination pill, you should always take it at the same time every day. However, If you’re on the mini pill, you’ll need to be even more vigilant about this. Having…Read More

At Nurx, we’re interviewing changemakers who are making a difference in the health and reproductive justice fields. Below, is an interview with Aleka Gurel. Gurel is a research analyst at Beyond the Pill, a program of the UCSF Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health. What would adequate access to birth control look like? AG: To me, “adequate access” means that every person can actually get the method that’s best for them. Let’s start with the obvious–clinics would offer every FDA-approved method. Today, many people around the country still can’t get IUDs and implants (the most effective reversible methods) because clinicians have…Read More

Earlier this week, Donald Trump appointed anti-contraception activist, Teresa Manning, to be the deputy assistant secretary for population affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services. Manning's appointment would give her control over Title X, a program which provides contraceptive services to millions of low-income and uninsured Americans. Such a move would greatly increase the barriers women face in accessing affordable reproductive healthcare and further support the Trump administration’s treatment of women as second-class citizens. In a 2003 interview, anti-contraception activist, Manning claimed “contraception doesn't work.” However, science proves otherwise. If used correctly, the Pill, NuvaRing, and the…Read More

Overwhelming evidence has proven that abstinence only programs have done nothing to reduce teen and unplanned pregnancy rates; however, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently credited increased access to low-cost services as a contributing factor to the overall decline in teen and unintended pregnancy rates nationwide. Research shows that the easier and more affordable birth control is, the more women will use it. This is why, we at Nurx, are making birth control more accessible than ever through our birth control app. Since December, we have also been giving away free birth control to new users who…Read More

Donald Trump thinks I'm equal to him? This is, of course, the same person who paid men on his campaign staff one third more than women, and now expects female White House staffers “to dress like women.” I'll be direct- Trump’s presidency and proposed policies pose a clear and present danger to women and our reproductive freedom. Just a few examples include: Reinstating the “global gag rule” His willingness to shut down the government just to defund Planned Parenthood. And his pick for HHS secretary who vehemently opposes the birth control mandate in the Affordable Care Act. Fortunately, we…Read More
