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.
