An opportunity for couples to learn about their natural signs of fertility to plan or postpone pregnancy without using drugs or mechanical devices.
A way to help couples who have experienced infertility as well as couples who have normal fertility.
Effective at avoiding pregnancy throughout a woman’s reproductive life: during regular or irregular cycles, coming off contraceptives, after childbirth, during breast-feeding and nearing menopause.
It is highly reliable. Studies have demonstrated a method effectiveness of 99% in avoiding pregnancy. NFP is as effective as any drug on the market. NFP is not the calendar rhythm method, which was unable to account for cycle irregularity.
It is medically safe. There are no harmful side effects. There are no drugs, devices or chemicals that alter normal reproductive systems.
It is morally acceptable in all major religions as a responsible means to postpone pregnancy and regulate family size. NFP accepts fertility as a normal and healthy process that is a precious gift from God - a gift to be loved, respected, understood and wisely used.
It is easy to learn. Professionallytrained teachers provide instruction and materials, and they are available for follow-up visits to encourage client learning and confidence.
It is less expensive than contraceptives. The materials to get started typically cost less than a trip to the doctor, and the follow-up sessions are on a sliding fee scale.
It promotes intimacy. Ongoing communication and creative ways of showing affection become a part of married life.
It protects new life. There is nothing to hinder the development of a newly conceived life.
It is helpful to couples who experience infertility by identifying and treating many reproductive health problems.
