In many centres around the world where the Billings Ovulation Method® is taught, a majority of the couples presenting for instruction come for assistance in achieving a pregnancy. This was not so much the case in the past and is perhaps a measure of the rising infertility in the community, but also a recognition that natural methods of regulating fertility can be of great assistance in this regard.

The benefits to both mother and child which result from breast-feeding provide a good example of the wisdom of living in accordance with the laws of nature. The Billings Ovulation Method® is very appropriate for use during lactation because it provides for the recognition of infertility in the absence of ovulation – it is just as easy to recognize infertility as it is to recognize fertility, and to learn rules which can be applied in either circumstance.
