Reclaiming Female Fertility

“The primary purpose of passing laws to control women’s fertility is to obscure the fact that it’s not possible to control our fertility.” — Yolande Norris-Clark

The recent overturn of Roe v. Wade in the United States has led to a great deal of discussion around women’s rights and the ever heated subject of abortion. Yet, despite all the conversation surrounding these recent changes, it is rarely acknowledged that while laws might be passed indicating otherwise, women will always own their fertility.

They offer a easy daily reminder of where you are at in your cycle and can help cue you into changes that are happening in your body at different times of the month.

For women hoping to become pregnant, fertility bracelets can help highlight fertile days where conception is possible. These bracelets can also be utilized as a part of natural family planning, but should not be used a primary method of birth control without a solid understanding of your cycle and the aid of some other fertility tracking or barrier methods, as they are not a reliable method for avoiding pregnancy.
