  1. natural family planning

    Natural Family Planning (NFP) is a method of birth control that doesn't rely on condoms, hormonal pills, or other typical contraceptives. It involves tracking a woman's menstrual cycle, body temperature, cervical mucus and other biological signs to identify when she is most and least fertile. By only having sexual intercourse during periods of low fertility, or by using barrier methods during high fertility, couples can significantly reduce the risk of unintended pregnancy. NFP also encourages greater communication and cooperation between partners.

  1. Natural family planning

    Natural family planning comprises the family planning methods approved by the Roman Catholic Church for both achieving and avoiding pregnancy. In accordance with the Church's teachings regarding sexual behavior in keeping with its philosophy of the dignity of the human person, NFP excludes the use of other methods of birth control, which it refers to as "artificial contraception." Periodic abstinence is the only method deemed moral by the Church for avoiding pregnancy. When used to avoid pregnancy, NFP limits sexual intercourse to naturally infertile periods; portions of the menstrual cycle, during pregnancy, and after menopause. Various methods may be used to identify whether a woman is likely to be fertile; this information may be used in attempts to either avoid or achieve pregnancy.
