Natural Family Planning

Natural Family Planning is a holistic approach to family planning. Once learned it can be used to achieve or postpone a pregnancy. NFP is not a contraceptive as it does nothing to suppress or block conception. All natural methods are scientifically based on the woman’s pattern of fertility and infertility. Couples learn to understand, respect and appreciate their combined fertility. Today’s NFP is not the old Rhythm Method of the past. With proper instruction and following the few simple rules the methods are 98-99% effective.
