Natural Family Planning

Avoiding or Achieving Pregnancy

Natural Family Planning, or NFP, is a method of birth regulation that is consistent with Catholic marriage vows by which a couple recognizes the natural, biological signs of fertility and infertility. To avoid pregnancy, the couple abstains from all sexual contact during the fertile time. To achieve pregnancy, the couple engages in marital intercourse during the fertile time.
