NFP is based on scientific knowledge while remaining faithful to the Church’s teaching on upholding the love and life connection in the marital act.
NFP methods are natural methods used for avoiding or achieving pregnancy which are based on a couple’s awareness of the woman’s naturally occurring times of fertility and infertility.
NFP reflects the dignity of the human person within the context of marriage and family life, promotes openness to life, and recognizes the value of the child. By respecting the love-giving natures of marriage, NFP can enrich the bond between husband and wife.
When couples are taught by competent teachers, understand the methods, and are motivated to follow them, NFP is up to 99% successful in spacing or limiting births.
