Why Use Natural Family Planning? Why not!! When we live in a world where everyone wants to go organic , to eat healthy, to exercise, using natural means to regulate fertility seems to be the most logical. NFP doesn’t have any side effects on a couple’s body. No drugs, devices, or surgical procedures are used to avoid pregnancy. It is medically safe and proven reliable. Natural Family Planning accepts our fertility and does not suppress it. The use of NFP means an acceptance of the divine gift of fertility within marriage, wherein the couple monitors their fertility to determine fertile and non-fertile phases for the purpose of either achieving or postponing pregnancy. Say no to dumping those contraceptive chemicals in your body to stop it from working in the way it is designed for. Say YES to natural means of fertility regulation and appreciation!!

Any married couple can use NFP!! The couples are taught and educated in the method of their choice so they can understand and interpret their combined fertility. Then they can discern and use this knowledge to put it to use based on their intentions in achieving or postponing a pregnancy.
