Purpose: To determine the effectiveness of a combined (hormonal and cervical mucus) fertility monitoring method (called the Marquette Model) to avoid pregnancy. Framework: Fertility begins when a developing follicle secretes estrogen and ends on the day of ovulation. Ovulation is preceded by a surge in luteinizing hormone (LH). The Clearblue fertility monitor identifies the fertile phase by tracking levels of estrone-3-glucuronide and identifying the urinary LH surge. Information provided by the monitor along with another marker of fertility (i.e., cervical mucus) could be used inversely for avoiding pregnancy. Subjects: Two hundred women aged 18 and 42 with menstrual cycles between 22 and 42 days who wish to avoid pregnancy for one year. Method: The subjects were taught (by a professional nurse) to observe their cervical mucus and use the fertility monitor to avoid pregnancy. All pregnancies were assessed as to whether they were intended or not and whether due to correct or incorrect use. Life table analysis was utilized to determine pregnancy rates. Results: The beginning of the fertile window was on average day 11.8 (SD=3.4) by the monitor and day 9.9 (SD=3.0) by cervical mucus (r=0.43, p < 0.001). The mean length of the fertile phase by the monitor was 7.7 days (SD=3.1) and by cervical mucus 10.9 days (SD=3.7) and (t=12.7, p < 0.001). Preliminary results from the first 100 couples and 600 cycles of use show a 100% correct use effectiveness and an 88.4 % typical use effectiveness to avoid pregnancy. Conclusion: The Marquette Model of family planning is very effective for avoiding pregnancy when used correctly and taught by professional nurses.
