Did You Know...? (NFP Benefits)

Natural Family Planning (NFP):

  • Is based on up-to-date science (cutting-edge physiology and endocrinology) 
  • Is completely individualized for every couple - because every woman is unique 
  • Is completely natural
    • Does not require surgery 
    • Does not require hormones
    • Does not pollute the water system
  • Enhances communication between couples
  • Is virtually free (after the initial training)
  • Is not to be confused with the "Rhythm Method" (that was abandoned in the 1950's)
  • Is equally reliable as the "best" contraception for regulating fertility1
  • Has been shown to 
    • enhance marital satisfaction 
    • be associated with ultra-low divorce rates (one CA study of 1100 couples had 15 divorces in 23 years - less than 2%)
  • Can help with early diagnosis of up to 30% of common health problems in women
  • Can be used to achieve pregnancy as well as avoid it
    • At a fraction of the cost of in-vitro fertilization (IVF)
    • Treats the underlying health issues - which IVF does not
    • Does not require powerful drugs - IVF does
    • Has been shown to be 2-4 times as effective as IVF
  • Is morally approved by the Catholic Church as a means of fertility regulation

Why Haven't I Heard of This Before?

NFP is not a "product" - so it is not "marketed" (by the pharmaceutical / medical industry). NFP works with the body’s natural rhythms, and increases respect for the couple’s fertility as God designed it.
