Natural Family Planning (NFP) Methods

The Archdiocese of San Francisco promotes four different NFP methods that are each natural and effective; choosing a method is a matter of personal preference.

A woman's body provides three basic ways to identify the fertile and infertile times of her cycle. Recognizing the pattern of those physical signs forms the basis for all methods of NFP.

Cervical Fluid Methods:
Methods that help women recognize the presence of cervical fluid indicating ovulation.

Sympto-Thermal Methods:
Methods use the cervical fluid sign, basal body temperature, and changes in the cervix.  These methods also use ecological breast feeding and are available in English and Spanish.
