Feminine Genius Ministries

We are a group of Nebraska registered nurses with a passion for women’s health. The American Academy of Pediatrics has stated the menstrual cycle should be considered a vital sign for young women. Just as a fever can indicate infection, an irregular menstrual cycle can indicate a health problem. There is a wealth of knowledge to be found in a woman’s cycle! With the development of methods such as the Marquette Model, biology meets technology and becomes a powerful tool for young women. The power of being a woman rests in understanding our innate potential. If we don’t understand our most basic biology, we are already selling ourselves short. Through fertility awareness education, women can learn about their physical health which can be a building block to then explore mental, emotional, and spiritual health. The world desperately needs the light of women who understand, love, and respect who they are– and that begins with basic body literacy.

Vitae Fertility Education

Vitae Fertility Education teaches the Marquette Method of Natural Family Planning (NFP), a highly effective method of NFP that employs the Clearblue line of home-based fertility monitors to track women’s hormone changes throughout each menstrual cycle.

The Marquette Method is one of the most effective forms of NFP. It is 99% effective in avoiding pregnancy when used correctly and with the expert advice of a trained Marquette instructor. The method is objective and relatively easy to learn, and typically requires less abstinence than other forms of NFP.

Your body is amazing. Human fertility is beautiful, and even a little mysterious. At Vitae Fertility Education we are passionate about empowering women and couples by teaching them how to read and interpret their natural fertile rhythms, allowing them to work with their fertility instead of suppressing it.

Fertility Science Institute

The Fertility Science Institute (“FSI”) site is an educational initiative to provide the best available information for anyone interested in, or currently using, a natural, fertility awareness based method, regardless of their stage in life.

The fertility awareness landscape has undergone profound changes in more recent years, with an explosion of apps and devices that have attracted large numbers away from contraceptives and toward a natural approach. Yet this profound change, while welcome, has also brought a lot of confusion for people as they seek reliable information about the various natural methods.
