Irregularities in a menstrual cycle can be restored back to health through lifestyle, supplements and medications which support normal function. This restorative approach is optimal instead of masking an underlying issue temporarily with hormonal birth control.

Additionally, women with medical conditions like PCOS can use this method for tracking the effects of lifestyle changes on their menstrual cycles.
The Marquette Method is appealing to women who desire to avoid artificial hormones for health reasons and/or religious reasons.
