Question 2 of 15
How many days does it usually take from ovulation to the onset of the next menstruation?Correct
Correct answer: 12 to 16 days. The egg needs a certain amount of time to get from the fallopian tube to the uterus and then settle down. The time can be determined as a whole with the first higher basal body temperature measurement.
Question 3 of 15
3. How long can sperm remain fertile in the woman’s body?Correct
Correct answer: 3 to 5 days. Among other things, the sperm are nourished by the woman’s cervical mucus and can remain fertile in it for about 3 to 5 days. Without cervical mucus sperm can survive only a few seconds in the acidic environment of the vagina.

Question 5 of 15
5. What does the cervical mucus ideally look like during ovulation?Correct
Correct answer: Glassy and spinnable. The closer the woman is to ovulation, the higher the water content in the cervical mucus. For this reason, many women can observe their best mucus quality at this time. The mucus then usually looks glassy and can be stretched between the fingers to a long elastic thread. However, every woman has her own best quality, which she can only determine by self-observation using a NFP method.
Question 6 of 15
6. What physical signs can be used to determine the fertile days with the symptothermal method?Correct
Correct answer: basal body temperature and cervical mucus. The symptothermal method consists of the syllables sympto = symptom and thermal = temperature. As an additional symptom for the determination of fertile days in the cycle, many women use the cervical mucus in double control with the basal body temperature. Few women use changes in the cervix in duplicate control of the basal body temperature to determine the fertile days in the menstrual cycle.
Question 7 of 15
7. Which method is not part of the natural family planning?Correct
Correct answer: calendar method. The calendar method is not one of the methods of Natural Family Planning, as it is based solely on mathematical calculations.

The calendar method belongs to expert circles to the rhythm methods.
Question 8 of 15
8. Which hormones are formed in the ovary?Correct
Correct answer: progesterone and estrogen. The estrogen is formed by the follicles from which cascades the egg ripens. After ovulation, the ovarian follicles in the ovary transform to the corpus luteum, which in turn causes the progesterone level to rise. The progesterone raises the basal body temperature. For this reason, it can be seen from the basal temperature curve, if ovulation has taken place.
Question 9 of 15
9. Can a woman have more than one ovulation within a cycle?Correct
Correct answer: Yes, but only within 12 to 18 hours. As explained in question 8 – the progesterone levels increase around ovulation. The progesterone prevents further ovulation, so that only within 12 to 18 hours oocytes can jump and be fertilized.
Question 10 of 15
10. What is the cycle length?Correct
Correct answer: The number of days from the first day of the menstrual period until one day before the next menstrual period. Here, the first day is the day the rule begins in full strength. Inter-bleedings are not counted as the first day!
Question 11 of 15
11. Which hormone triggers ovulation?Correct
Correct answer: LH. When the ovulation in the ovary is completed, the brain gets a hint and releases the hormone LH, which triggers ovulation. For this reason, there is ovulation test, which also measure the LH level, and thus help with the desire to have the time to limit the ovulation.
Question 12 of 15
12. How can one not recognize that one is pregnant?Correct
Correct answer: The absence of menstruation. The absence of menstruation does not necessarily mean that you are pregnant. Many women may have missed menstruation due to diet, stress or illness. The safest way to detect a pregnancy is to take a doctor’s ultrasound, followed by a highly sensitive pregnancy test and a basal body temperature that has been elevated for more than 18 days.
Question 13 of 15
13. How much sperm does an ejaculation of a fertile man contain?Correct
Correct answer: 200 to 700 million. Nature is not thrifty when it comes to the origin of life. After all, women also have two ovaries and men have two testes. Even women have up to 400,000 oocytes. Quite a lot, considering that German women on average only get 1.4 children on average.
Question 14 of 15
14. Which scientist found in a study in 2003 that if used correctly, 81% of women will become pregnant within 6 months if used correctly?Correct
Correct answer: Prof. Dr. med. med. Gnoth. The famous scientist has already carried out numerous studies on the symptothermal method. In the most famous study from 2003, he showed that 81% of women who use NFP to become pregnant become pregnant within 6 months. By comparison, only about 60% of women become pregnant without a method within one year. Thus, he was able to show that the determination of fertile days with NFP leads to an increased pregnancy rate. In 2017, the scientist was able to substantiate this thesis by a study on the pregnancy after a long wait. By the way Prof. dr. med. Gnoth was also able to show in a study from 1996 that ovulation with NFP can be limited exactly to 4 days.
Question 15 of 15
15. What is the role of the hormone estrogen in the preovulatory phase?Correct
Correct answer: Increase in cervical mucus production. The more cervical mucus produced, the easier sperm in the cervical mucus can remain fertile. Because of this, the woman usually produces more mucus around ovulation. Most of this slime also has a higher water quality. In addition, the estrogen is for the u.a. responsible for building the lining of the uterus
