Many people have emailed me wondering if this is the rhythm method. I need to emphasize that it is, in fact, not! This is much more effective, comprehensive, and scientific.

This is an opportunity for a film about fertility to be funded by the fertility community. Your voices and experiences are important!

Whether it's for monitoring your health, diagnosing causes of menstrual irregularities, improving fertility to conceive, or effective natural birth control, fertility charting is knowledge every woman deserves to know. With my film, I hope to broaden understanding and dispel common misconceptions on what charting can offer to women, while also providing honest dialogue on the challenges it can present. This film is not exclusively for Catholics, hippies, conservatives, or liberals - it is for all women and men interested in getting to know the human condition a little bit better, one menstrual cycle at a time. 

We are raising funds for production to travel, for lodging and per diems. Funds will also go towards post-production needs such as gear, music rights, festival fees and distribution.

You're donation matters. 47% of women are currently unhappy with their method of family planning. 1.1% of women currently use natural methods. This film can help bridge that gap so those interested have the support and information necessary to begin the journey of fertility charting.

Risks and challenges

Documentary making is sort of like pregnancy. It's your baby and you want the best for it, but sometimes things don't go as planned. We hope to conquer obstacles with a positive attitude. Support from our enthusiasts makes a huge difference. The crew is extremely talented, qualified, and eager to produce the best film we can.
