Association of Fertility Awareness Professionals

FERTILITY AWARENESS enables women to understand their cycles and their fertility, for pregnancy prevention, pregnancy achievement, and for reproductive health and sexual well-being.   Fertility Awareness is a powerful tool that can change lives for the better. When learned thoroughly and practiced correctly, it can be highly effective.

AFAP is a membership organization that supports the profession of Fertility Awareness instruction, so that more people will have access to accurate information and high quality instruction that is independent of any particular religious context or agenda and supports all reproductive choices.

Our site has information for people considering instruction in Fertility Awareness, and for those interested in Fertility Awareness at a professional level. You’ll also find content on Reproductive Justice, which is a core part of our mission.

We thank you for visiting and hope you find the information useful. Please note that our site is not completely finished, and we have not begun using our social media. We are still actively working on all this and aim to have our “official” launch later this year. But we just couldn’t wait to get this information out to you!
