A communications tool for those in currently sexually active relationships
[by Fiona Fox 2015]
DISCLAIMER: This is a communications tool for sexually active couples. This scale is NOT to be used for debate OR ENDORSEMENT on the subjects of fertility treatments/procedures, or abortion. It is simply a realistic recognition of the varying views and mind-sets amongst Fertility Awareness users. (I have respectfully not included couples abstaining to avoid pregnancy simply because I did not feel there was an easy place to rank this level – this is why the scale is labeled for “currently sexually active couples” I am not trying to exclude those who choose to abstain and am very aware and respectful of these couples!) ALSO! Pursuing adoption is intentionally left out because a couple could choose to adopt regardless of their fertility intentions (ie. needing to avoid for physical health reasons but still wanting to grow their family)
