cycle charting as birth control
this zine is all about using menstrual cycle charting as birth control (ie: the fertility awareness method!). in order for this zine to be the most useful, the reader should also be familiar with the hormones of the cycle, and how to observe cervical fluid & basal body temperatures.
“cycle charting as birth control is a friendly approach to beginning fertility awareness. the zine format gives the reader a thorough overview, but doesn’t intimidate like a massive book about tracking cycles. all the steps are carefully explained, but allow for more information to be explored as a companion to classes and workshops. it’s especially awesome that the material is presented in a way that reiterates the importance of the individual and their choices, quietly championing the reader’s agency with ‘no shame’ and promotions of self-authority.”
