this little zine is all about using menstrual cycle charting as birth control (ie: the fertility awareness method!).

it was created to be used in conjunction with the cycle charting for birth control class, but can also be used by itself as a reference & guide.

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.


  • identifying the opening of the fertile window

  • cervix changes

  • sex & the fertile time

  • closing the fertile window

  • peak day rule

  • temperature shift rule

  • rules for other parts of the cycle

  • coverline

  • calculation rules

  • … and more!

“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.”
