posted on April 8, 2017 by Cassie Moriarty Cassie Moriarty

Think you paid attention in sex ed? Maybe you did, but that was years ago. And let’s be honest, sex ed left out a few details. Test your knowledge with this quiz and see how much you really know about your cycles and human reproduction. Women who use Fertility Awareness Based Methods tend to know a healthy dose about their bodies. Think you’re a pro? This is your chance to prove it! New to FABM? This is your opportunity to become proficient in hormonal health! Either way, we hope you learn a thing or two.

How did you do?

You’ve got a little schooling in FABM but still have a ways to go. Maybe you’re just starting a method. Maybe you’ve been eyeing hormonal health from a distance for a while. Or maybe you just stumbled on a few blogs and want to learn more. No matter, keep studying and keep on keepin on.

Under 60%: You are a FABM Newbie:

You’ve got some brushing up to do. Never fear, however! There are plenty of resources both online and at your local library.

We promise, it’s a journey you won’t regret embarking on.

    In my high school physiology class we were taught that the reproductive cycle ends with breastfeeding, not childbirth. In your emphasis on sex ed and human reproduction and women, the type of breastfeeding that delays fertility for spacing the births of babies could have been covered.

    Right away the first question has the wrong answer, or the question needs to be rephrased to “How many days can intercourse lead to pregnancy”.
    Your answers to “How many days can a woman get pregnant in a cycle” and “How long is an egg alive” contradict each other. One of your answers is incorrect since an egg can only fertilize when it is alive.
