The Most Effective Method to Conceive

I am posting this amazing study from Australia. It shows the effectiveness of The Ovulation Method for conception.
Amazing and wondeful hope for couples struggling with infertility:

“The Ovulation Method has established itself as the primary management of the problem of infertility. In general it has a much higher success rate of overcoming this problem than such procedures a In Vitro Fertilization and GIFT (Gamete Intra-Fallopian Transfer); the first and often the only course necessary is to instruct the woman to identify the presence of the slippery, lubricative mucus which can be felt at the vulva at a time of high fertility.”
(John J Billings M.D., Melbourne 1987)

Study on the Billings Ovulation Method™ and the Achievement of Pregnancy
1/1/1999 – 31/12/2003
Study conducted by Research Team of Ovulation Method Research and Reference Centre of Australia Ltd

Summary of Results: Study involved all couples who expressed a desire to achieve a pregnancy and who attended 17 Australian Billings Ovulation Method™ clinics within the required time frame. All couples included regardless of age, cycle length or pre-diagnosed sub-fertile indicators of either partner.

Total Participants 449

Outcome known 358

Outcome unknown 91

Total pregnancies 278 of 358

Pregnancy Rate 78%

Known Live Birth rate 61% (169 of 278)

Possible Live Birth rate**14 still pregnant at end of study; outcome of pregnancy unknown for 62 couples. 88% (169+76 = 245 of 278)

Known Miscarriages [Of these, six advised subsequent live births within the study time and four were still pregnant. These pregnancies were not included in the results.]

Average months trying to achieve for all couples in study before coming to Billings Ovulation Method™ clinic 33 of 278 15 months

Average months from initial instruction in Billings Ovulation Method™ to conception
4.7 months
Couples who were childless 60%

Prior knowledge of signs of fertility 18%

207 women in the study were classified as sub-fertile – trying to achieve a pregnancy for more than 12 months (e.g. 20 couples had been unsuccessful with IVF/AI – 7 achieved pregnancy with Billings Ovulation Method™)

Outcome known for 172:

Known pregnancy rate for this sub-fertile group 111/172 65%

65 subjects over 38 yrs old - known pregnancy rate 32/48 66%

Of the 17 couples who had previously attempted InVitro Fertilisation (IVF) without success, 5 of 17 (29%) conceived with Billings Ovulation Method™ guidelines only.

Satisfaction:93% stated they were satisfied and would recommend Billings Ovulation Method™ to others.95% stated that the Billings Ovulation Method™ gave an understanding of fertility and infertility.
