What Can NFP do for You?

  • Natural Family Planning is 97-99% effective when used to avoid a pregnancy and is also effective when used to achieve a pregnancy.
  • Couples who use Natural Family Planning report it improves communication and adds SPICE to the relationship.

What is NFP and How Does It Work?

Barring any medical problems, men are always fertile. Women alternate between periods of fertility and infertility. By cooperating with this cycle, couples effectively achieve or avoid pregnancy. For more information and a brief description of the methods, click here or cursor over the method name to link to their national websites.
