Fertility Education and Medical Management

What is FEMM?

FEMM, Fertility Education and Medical Management, is a fertility awareness method that utilizes a woman’s natural biomarkers to indicate her days of fertility throughout her cycle. While understanding her body and what she is observing, she will be able to chart her cycle with the goal of avoiding or achieving a pregnancy, as well as simply being mindful of her overall health!

Why Would You Want to Learn FEMM?

Only 3% of the world’s women know when they ovulate.

Ovulation is a vital sign of health.

FEMM educates women about their bodies, their cycles, and their health.

➳ Zero harmful side effects

➳ No synthetic hormones

➳ Gain awareness of your body

➳ Confidence to identify your fertile window

➳ Know when you are infertile during your cycle


“After completing the FEMM course, I feel empowered to seek the truth about my body. My body is beautifully and wonderfully made– not broken! I feel blessed to have been told about Guiding Star Cedar Valley.

ALL women NEED to know the truth about their bodies and that there are holistic answers to their struggles.

I would wholeheartedly recommend FEMM to any female looking for answers and truth about their feminine design.”
