Pregnancy
Natural Family Planning: Safe, Healthy, Effective
Provided by LEARN, Inc.

Why is NFP the best in family planning?

NFP provides a medically safe, healthy, highly effective and very low cost method of planning your family. It is convenient (no birth control devices to use), and it's immediately reversible for achieving or avoiding pregnancy. It is increasingly available throughout the world, it tells you when you have achieved pregnancy, and it's morally acceptable.


What's the basis for NFP?

It is scientifically established that during each menstrual cycle a woman normally becomes fertile and then naturally infertile. The fertile time is the part of her cycle when sexual intercourse can result in pregnancy. A woman's body provides certain physical signs to indicate her fertile and infertile times.


What are the signs of fertility and infertility?

The most used signs are a normal discharge of cervical mucus and changes in a woman's waking temperature. Other signs include changes in her cervix and a feeling called "ovulation pain."

Cervical mucus is nature's way of helping a man's sperm reach a woman's egg. Her flow of cervical mucus generally starts in a small way several days before she ovulates (releases an egg); it is a very positive sign that her fertile time has started. About the time she ovulates, her mucus may be abundant and have a consistency something like a raw egg-white. After ovulation, her mucus normally disappears.

A woman's waking temperature is lower before ovulation and rises slightly but distinctly after ovulation. After it has been well elevated for several days (while her mucus has been disappearing), it is a very positive sign that she is infertile.
