Desire to have children
Knowledge about one's own fertility
About one in ten women or couples interested in Sensiplan would like to use the associated knowledge to realize their desire to have children. It has been shown that men and women who have learned body awareness and cycle observation know more about their own fertility.
They know the signs with which fertility announces itself and also those of the highly fertile phase and, if they wish to have children, they can adjust their sex life accordingly.
The signs include:
- Cervical mucus
- other individual, cycle-dependent body signs such as breast symptoms and libido changes
While cervical mucus, cervical os and Mittelschmerz mark the highly fertile phase, temperature indicates whether ovulation is taking place at all and whether there are any cycle disorders such as prolonged egg maturation phases or shortened corpus luteum phases, which can make conception difficult.
If the desire to have a child remains unfulfilled, these cycle records provide the attending physician with initial diagnostic indications and thus support any necessary therapy.
