    Are there many names for tracking your fertility? Do they all mean the same thing? I have heard FAM, STM, and others. Can you please clarify?

    Hi! Yeah, I know all of the different fertility acronyms can be confusing :/ The Fertility Awareness Method (FAM), the Sympto-Thermal Method (STM), and Natural Family Planning (NFP) are more or less variations of the same thing. STM is the scientific name for the method, whereas NFP is generally used in a Catholic context, and FAM does not have a religious connotation. The method is essentially the same, regardless of the acronym - the only difference is that NFP is intended only for married couples, and teaches abstinence during the fertile window rather than the use of barrier methods.
