Natural Fertility & Family Planning

Our NFP classes are led by trained Fertility Awareness Based Methods (FABM) educators. Anyone can use FABM effectively — even women who have irregular cycles!

Once you’re familiar with the method you choose, it takes only a few minutes a day to manage your fertility. Natural Family Planning can be practiced through the following methods:

The Cervical Mucus Methods — These methods include the careful observation and charting of a woman’s daily cervical mucus.

  • Creighton Model
  • Billings Ovulation Method
  • Family of America’s Foundation Method

Sympto-Thermal Methods — These methods rely on careful observation and daily charting of multiple fertility signs, including cervical mucus, basal body temperature, and cervical changes.

  • SymptoPro Fertility Education
  • Couple-to-Couple League

Sympto-Hormonal Methods — These methods also rely on the observation and daily charting of cervical mucus while using an electronic fertility monitor to measure a woman’s hormone levels.

  • Marquette Model
