Natural Family Planning

 What is natural family planning?

  • Natural Family Planning (NFP) is a highly effective, safe approach that allows couples to work together in managing their fertility.
  • By learning and observing the natural changes in a woman’s body, couples learn when the woman is fertile and infertile.
  • NFP is safe, environmentally friendly and has no costs associated with it.
  • NFP conforms to the teachings of the Catholic Church on Human Sexuality.

Natural Family Planning Methods

There are three methods of NFP that you can choose from:

  • Billings method (is based on understanding and interpreting changing cervical secretions)
  • Symptothermal method (is based on observing changes in the cervical secretions, along with changes in the basal body temperature, and the position and feel of the opening of cervix)
  • Creighton Model System (is based on a couple’s knowledge and understanding of their naturally-occurring phases of fertility and infertility)
  • NaPRO (technology for monitoring and maintaining a woman’s reproductive and gynaecological health)
