European Congress on Fertility awareness-based Methods

Irish College Leuven, Belgium
Friday, November 15th 2024

In 2008, NFP-Vlaanderen organized a successful European Congress on Fertility Awareness Methods (FAM) in Antwerp, with the collaboration of several Flemish Universities.
Meanwhile, the world is not standing still and times have changed. In Europe, public opinion is becoming more aware of the sympto-thermal method Sensiplan. Women and couples have a growing interest in taking natural fertility back into their own hands. Besides strict medical aspects, there is a perceived psychosocial need for more specific information about fertility and its management. New perspectives concerning their fertile years can help couples strive for a more holistic approach to the autonomous decision-making process of family planning.

The European Congress on Fertility Awareness-based Methods, organized by NFP-Vlaanderen and the German ‘Sektion Natürliche Fertilität’ of the ‘Deutsche Gesellschaft für Gynäkologische Endokrinologie und Fortpflanzungsmedizin e.V.’ in collaboration with the departments of Gynaecology of Flemish universities presents the results of new scientific studies on several topics about FAM. The congress offers also a forum for discussing and integrating new medical and psycho-social scientific insights in fertility knowledge and experience.

University experts from Europe and the US will participate in the debates. Special attention is paid to a forum for young scientists. And so, this congress is an opportunity for young doctors, academics, scientists, and FAM teachers to network and secure the future in a unique international context.

A preliminary meeting can be organized on Thursday.
