What is Natural Family Planning?
Natural Family Planning (NFP) is the scientific, natural, and moral approach to family planning that helps couples achieve or postpone pregnancy by understanding and tracking their joint fertility. NFP fosters self-knowledge, respect, and appreciation for the gift of fertility. Each method of NFP helps a couple identify times of fertility with scientific precision by observing the presence or absence of various signs of fertility. No drugs, devices, or surgical procedures are used to avoid pregnancy. NFP supports God’s design for married love by fostering free, total, faithful, and fruitful communion between husband and wife.
