WHAT IS NFP?

 

AVOID PREGNANCY

HOW DOES NFP WORK?


After completing a certified NFP class, women observe their daily signs of fertility. Depending on the NFP method, these signs include cervical mucus, waking temperature, cervical changes, and/or fertility monitor readings. By accurately recording & interpreting this data, women can determine precisely when they are fertile and infertile - with 99% accuracy. From there, the choice is theirs whether to have intercourse on fertile days, or to wait until infertile days return.




HOW MUCH ABSTINENCE IS THERE?


In an average 28-day cycle, ovulation occurs mid-cycle, around day 14. Most women will be fertile several days before ovulation and also a few days after. On average, women can expect around 7-10 fertile days per month. Of course, each woman is unique, and so is every cycle she experiences. Some cycles include more fertile days than others.
But here's the good news: overall, NFP users enjoy similar rates of intercourse as birth control users.




FERTILITY AWARENESS - Natural Alternative to Birth Control


Women have many options when it comes to birth control.
But how many women fully understand all the risks and benefits?
A growing number of women are choosing Fertility Awareness (Natural Family Planning) as an effective alternative to prescription birth control.

NFP is 99% effective when learned from a certified instructor. It's not the Rhythm Method.
It works with irregular cycles.

BENEFITS OF NFP

NO SIDE EFFECTS


Research shows women are not satisfied with birth control's side effects. In fact, 40-61% of women switch birth control methods within two years. NFP frees you from prescriptions, invasive medical procedures, and unpleasant side effects. With NFP, you can avoid these birth control risks:

  • Breast cancer: 50% increased risk
  • Cervical cancer: Twice as likely
  • Stroke: 2-3 times more likely
  • Pulmonary embolism: Twice as likely
  • Crohn's disease: Three times as likely




IMMEDIATELY REVERSIBLE


If your family planning intentions change overnight, NFP can keep up. Unlike when using hormones, there is no waiting period for fertility to return. And unlike implants, vaginal rings, or IUDs, there is no need to schedule an office visit to remove or replace anything. With NFP, simply avoid or engage in intercourse based on your individual fertility charting. No waiting or scheduling required.




ORGANIC & CHEMICAL-FREE


Your groceries may be organic, but what about your hormones? Did you know artificial hormones are Class 1 Carcinogens, according to the World Health Organization? That's the same category as asbestos, tobacco, plutonium, and diesel exhaust. NFP can help you achieve a truly organic lifestyle, free from artificial chemicals.




RESPECTS LIFE


For women concerned with respecting life starting at conception, NFP is the obvious choice for spacing pregnancies. Why? The Physicians' Desk Reference (PDR) lists the Mechanism of Action for all prescription birth control as follows: "alterations in the endometrium that can impair implantation" This means if a human egg is released & fertilized (and yes, breakthrough ovulation is fairly common with birth control), the newly conceived life cannot implant in the womb, and it dies at an early stage. The term for this action is abortifacient.




CURES HEALTH PROBLEMS


Many women use birth control to "treat" issues such as acne, heavy or painful periods, PCOS, endometriosis, and others. But birth control cannot cure these problems. It only masks the symptoms, hiding them for a while. By charting daily fertility signs, NFP users can gain detailed insight into hormonal imbalances causing these problems. An NFP doctor can then diagnose and actually cure them.




IMPROVES COMMUNICATION


They say if you can discuss finances with your spouse, then you can talk about anything. But we say: if you can discuss cervical mucus with your spouse, then you can discuss anything! NFP enables couples to engage in real, meaningful conversations every month. When the possibility of conceiving another baby returns each month, so does the opportunity to discuss careers, finances, emotions, and other important issues. These topics naturally arise when deciding family size and spacing children. While it's not impossible to discuss these topics when using birth control, NFP automatically encourages these conversations more frequently, leading to consistent, quality communication between spouses.
