Myself and my partner tried natural contraception with one of the high-street apps for nearly a year before we realised that following the app’s algorithm is something we can’t get used to and will never trust.
We wanted to understand the rhythm of female cycles and be able to support our intimate choices with proven studies and knowledge.
We have seen lots of doctors and nurses. It was off-putting how much rejection we faced. I asked
Then we found Sarah. She empowered us both, giving all the necessary information, answering all questions and sharing her experience with us. Sarah is incredibly open-minded, knowledgeable and warm. There is no taboo with her. She’s so enthusiastic and passionate about everyone’s individual case, and she proves it with endless amount of patience.
Sarah encouraged us to buy a Caya diaphragm* from Amazon for my less fertile days - we use condoms or abstain on my most fertile days.
Caya does not fit everyone so Sarah said I should get it checked at an NHS sexual health clinic, and tell them my appointment was about Caya so I would get the help I needed.
This time my experience was completely different. The doctor was brilliant – she checked it fitted and showed me exactly how to use it. We love Caya!
My journey with Sarah and the fertility awareness method began about two cycles ago, however I was never happier with any other contraception I tried.
I think the biggest upsides are no side effects, becoming aware of one’s body rhythm, and last but not least, becoming closer with your partner as they are involved with the process, whilst learning about their partner’s womanhood.
