Research Interests

Dr. Fehring, a professor emeritus and director of the Institute for Natural Family Planning, is an internationally known Fertility Awaness Based Methods (FABM)  researcher. His research includes effectiveness studies of FABM for achieving and avoiding pregnancy, use of FABM during reproductive transitions including the postpartum transition to fertility, and the transition through perimenopause. Dr. Fehring is one of the prime developers of the Marquette Method of natural family planning, a modern evidence-based method that integrates the newest hormonal monitoring systems that allow women to track their fertility for family planning purposes and as a vital sign for women's health. His research also includes the influence of FABM and contraception on women's health.
