subfertile 250The Billings Ovulation Method™ is very successful at helping couples to achieve pregnancy naturally, even couples who thought they were infertile or who had failed attempts at IVF. Knowing how to identify your fertile time and your Peak of fertility optimises your chances of conceiving. A 5-year study of the Billings Ovulation Method™ with couples wanting to achieve pregnancy showed a known pregnancy rate of 78%. The known pregnancy rate was 65% in sub-fertile couples and 66% in women aged over 38. Of the couples in the study who had previously attempted IVF or AI (artificial insemination) without success, 35% conceived naturally with the Billings Ovulation Method™.
