Teen FEMM (Fertility Education and Medical Management) is a knowledge-based health program for young women that teaches them to understand and monitor hormonal and other indicators of their health. Young women from ages 13 (or the onset of menses) to 17* can learn to identify and chart their unique hormonal indicators.
Understanding how their bodies work and recognizing signs of abnormal activity can enable teens, their parents, and their healthcare providers to identify common health problems, including irregular bleeding, pain, and depression.
Studies show that most women do not understand how their bodies work, and adults who go through the FEMM course often ask, “Why didn’t I learn this when I was younger?”
A young woman equipped with the knowledge to understand her body is empowered to make the best health care decision for herself, which leads to overall better health outcomes.
This 5-week course will cover:
- Your Body and Your Health
- Charting Health and Hormones
- Puberty and Your Healthy Cycle
- Female & Male: The Beginning of Life
- Brain, Emotions & Lifestyle and Healthy Habits for a Healthy Body
Teen FEMM classes may be presented in a group setting (i.e. within a classroom, small group of friends, or youth group) or to an individual.
*Younger girls (from onset of menses to age 14) are encouraged to be accompanied by a parent.
