What is NFP?

Natural Family Planning (NFP) is the general title for the scientific, natural, and moral methods of family planning that can help married couples either achieve or avoid pregnancies.

NFP is a system of understanding a couple’s combined fertility through observation of naturally occurring signs and symptoms of the fertile and infertile phases of a woman's menstrual cycle. No drugs, devices, or surgical procedures are used to avoid pregnancy. Since the methods of NFP respect the love-giving (unitive) and life-giving (procreative) nature of the conjugal act, they support God's design for married love! 

How Does It Work?

Barring any medical problems, men are always fertile. On the other hand, women alternate between times of fertility and infertility. NFP is based on the hormones that naturally occur during the woman’s menstrual cycle causing changes in her body that she can observe. With proper instruction and by cooperating with this cycle, couples can effectively achieve or avoid pregnancy.
