The Billings Life Leaders in Fertility Education


   Basic Explanation requiring follow up with an accredited teacher

   As you walk around during the ordinary course of your daily activities you know when your menstruation has begun.         You feel something happening and when you go to the bathroom you notice some bleeding.

   Well at any other time in your cycle, between one menstruation and the next, have you noticed a similar sensation of         something happening but instead of bleeding you notice a secretion that looks a little like raw egg-white?

Billings Ovulation Method

This is normal and the sign of your health and fertility. Without it sperm cells die within a short time. Sperm live in satisfactory secretion for 3 days, rarely longer.

You are possibly fertile while observing the changing, developing pattern of cervical mucus secretion and during the three days following Peak, when there is an abrupt change in sensation from slippery to no longer slippery. Peak is the last day of the slippery sensation at the vulva. Ovulation occurs on Peak or up to day 2 past Peak and is followed by menstruation 11 to 16 days later. By the end of the third day the ovum is dead.

If you:
a) Keep a simple daily evening record
b) Learn how to apply four commonsense guidelines with an accredited teacher
c) Understand the concept of the unchanging Basic infertile pattern (BIP of dry/discharge) you will become confident in managing your fertility and infertility during such times as:

  • Regular or Irregular, fertile/infertile cycles
  • Breastfeeding
  • Pre-Menopause,
  • Recovering from Physical/Emotional Stress
  • Coming Off Contraceptive Medication

Drs. John and Evelyn Billings developed their Method in 1953 and were later joined in scientific collaboration by professors James B. Brown and Erik Odeblad. Recently published studies in China and India found it to be better than 99% effective when used to avoid pregnancy while helping couples of low fertility sometimes on IVF lists, to achieve pregnancy. It also safeguards fertility and facilitates early diagnosis of disease. Blind women use it successfully.
