The Billings Method is the product of comprehensive scientific research which was first carried out in Australia and later confirmed by scientists in other parts of the world. It is of outstanding help to many couples who have difficulty achieving pregnancy. Instruction in the Billings Method is now becoming widely recognised as the first measure to be undertaken to help these couples.
When the Billings Method is properly understood and applied according to the rules for the avoidance of pregnancy, it is again highly effective, and is to be placed in the most highly effective group of techniques for avoiding pregnancy.
There is no method of avoiding pregnancy which is 100% effective. This is true of sterilising operations of both men and women (vasectomy or tubal ligation), of the use of chemical contraceptives, the intra-uterine device and barrier contraception. Whenever a healthy man and woman engage in genital intercourse the possibility of pregnancy should be recognised.
