What is the Standard Sympto-Thermal Method?
The Standard Sympto-Thermal method (SST) is a diocesan program, teaching a system of NFP developed through several decades of research by the late Dr. Josef Roetzer of Austria. The couple learns to interpret how three signs of fertility–cervical mucus, basal body temperature, and optionally the cervix–can reliably inform them of the times of fertility and infertility in the woman’s cycle. Special emphasis is placed on how NFP integrates into, and contributes to, a successful and happy marriage, consistent with the Church’s teachings on the human person, love, marriage, and family life.
Training for this method consists of attending 3 group classes spread out over the course of 3 months.
Additionally, an optional post-partum workshop is available to couples, whenever they need it.
