Natural Family Planning & Fertility

Natural Family Planning involves methods for achieving and avoiding pregnancy that are based on the observation of the naturally occurring signs and symptoms of the fertile and infertile phases of the menstrual cycle.

Couples using natural family planning methods to avoid pregnancy abstain from intercourse and genital contact during the fertile phase of the woman’s cycle. No drugs, devices, or surgical procedures are used to avoid pregnancy.

NFP reflects the dignity of the human person within the context of marriage and family life, and promotes openness to life and the gift of the child. By complementing the love-giving and life-giving nature of marriage, NFP can enrich the bond between husband and wife.

The Diocese of Wichita offers Natural Family Planning Classes by trained and certified teachers in two methods: Ovulation Method and Sympto-thermal method. Please contact us at (316) 685-5240 or email Becky at
