Methods of Natural Family Planning

What Method is Right for You

Many people don’t realize there are a variety of methods of Natural Family Planning (NFP). This may seem overwhelming at first – you’ve already made the difficult decision not to use contraception, and now you have to navigate multiple methods? This quiz is intended to help people new to NFP figure out which method may be a good fit for them.

Take the Quiz

The Billings Ovulation Method

Women are taught to observe the sensation at the vulva (the vaginal opening) as they go about their normal daily activities and to notice whether or not cervical mucus is visible when they use the bathroom. Women develop their own vocabulary for describing their observations and identify their own particular patterns of fertility and infertility by keeping a written record of what they experience. Couples are taught this “four simple rules” model for charting the ovulation method. It teaches a woman to recognize her body’s natural signal of fertility - cervical mucus.

Cost: Introductory Session: $13 - $35 (Sliding Fee Scale)
Follow Up Sessions: $12 - $30 (Sliding Fee Scale)
Materials: included in sliding fee scale (paid at introductory session)

The Couple to Couple League

CCL has a three-fold approach to teaching NFP which includes the Sympto Thermal Method of NFP, the moral underpinnings of the NFP decision and the promotion of exclusive and continued breastfeeding and its effects on fertility. The chart provides a daily record that the couple uses to identify the days of fertility and infertility. Once the fertile and infertile days are identified, the couple applies “rules” that they learn in class and that are explained in CCL’s Student Guide.

The Creighton Model/FertilityCare Services Ovulation Method

Women are taught to observe the sensation produced by cervical mucus as they wipe with toilet tissue each time they visit the restroom and to observe the appearance of any mucus collected. They then describe what they observe with a standardized system of mucus descriptions and identify times of fertility and infertility based on the instructions regarding these observations. This standardized system networks family planning with women’s health that is completely cooperative with the woman’s cycle. The FertilityCare System is the foundation for the applications of NaProTechnology.

Cost: Introductory Session: $13 - $35 (Sliding Fee Scale)
Follow Up Sessions: $12 - $30 (Sliding Fee Scale)
Materials: included in sliding fee scale (paid at introductory session)

Family of the Americas Ovulation Method (FAF)

A visual model of the ovulation Method that effectively tracks the fertile and infertile times of the cycle, regardless of culture and educational level. Women are taught to observe the sensation at the vulva as they go about their normal daily activities and notice whether or no cervical mucus is visible when they use the bathroom. Women match their observations to photographs on stickers of typical cervical mucus and use these stickers to indicate what they observed. Picture stamps are used to record the signs of fertility observed each day.

Cost:Introductory and Follow up sessions: $35
Materials: Included in session fee
