Teachers will learn:
- Never to make assumptions
- To ask the right questions during chart reviews
- To identify the likely hormone levels and cervical response when reviewing charts
- To identify a Basic Infertile Pattern (BIP) in charts, especially when ovulation is delayed and when there is no cervical response to rising hormone levels
- To identify a Peak only when the necessary criteria is present
- To understand the Continuum of ovarian activity
- To identify the need for referral for medical investigation when abnormalities in the Billings Ovulation Method™ chart are observed
This program is divided into four specific areas. It begins with a review of the science and methodology to ensure that there is a clear understanding of the basics of the Billings Ovulation Method™.
Experienced teachers have all faced charts that present challenges. This program aims to identify the reasons this may be so:
Is her chart reflecting what is actually happening with her fertility and infertility?
Is her chart an accurate reflection of her life stage?
Is her chart reflecting some underlying medical problems?
The basis of this course is the Continuum of Ovarian Activity from Menarche to Menopause the life-work of Emeritus Professor James B Brown: http://humupd.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2010/10/05/humupd.dmq040.full
