Lunaception is a practice that purports to enable a woman to know ahead of time when she will be fertile each month, based on practices stated by its advocate to be found in many non-urban cultures. It was named and described by Louise Lacey in her 1974 book Lunaception, and she maintains a website advocating the theory. The practice includes making a daily chart of temperature, condition of vagina, mood, and other observables, and sleeping in complete darkness except for three days each month. The name comes from the assertion by the author that most women's menstrual cycles usually become synchronized to one phase of the Moon during the three nights of sleeping with light. Lunaception has not received scientific testing.

dbo:abstract
  • Lunacepción es una teoría anticonceptiva formulada en el año 1971 por Louise Lacey basándose en las experiencias prácticas del físico Edmond M. Dewan del año 1965, el cual estudió la relación existente entre la luz reflejada por la Luna y los ciclos menstruales femeninos. Lacey, autora del libro “Lunaception”, suponía que durmiendo con una luz encendida durante los días 14, 15 y 16 del ciclo femenino y en total oscuridad las restantes noches, era posible ajustar el ciclo menstrual hasta hacerlo sincronizar con el período de novilunio, alcanzando una duración aproximada a los 29 días. Aplicando esta regularidad al conocimiento del momento exacto de la ovulación mediante el control de la temperatura basal, era posible establecer los períodos fértiles de la mujer. (es)
