Natural Family Planning (NFP) is fertility awareness. These scientific, natural and moral methods of family planning that can help married couples either achieve or postpone pregnancies. These methods also have the advantage over artificial birth control of avoiding side effects and health risks. NFP methods are based on the observation of the naturally occurring signs and symptoms of the fertile and infertile phases of a woman’s menstrual cycle. No chemicals, drugs, devices, or surgical procedures are used to avoid pregnancy. It is 100% natural and ecological. NFP is good for the body and great for the soul! Since the methods of NFP respect the lovegiving (unitive) and life-giving (procreative) nature of the conjugal act, they support God’s design for married love.
