Natural Family Planning

*Natural Family Planning (NFP) is a scientifically sound, medically safe method to achieve or postpone pregnancy. It has zero of the harmful side effects that are inherent to almost all of the artificial contraceptives used today (such as various cancers, blood clots, stroke, heart disease, and osteoporosis). Research shows that NFP is 99% effective in postponing pregnancy and almost 70% of couples trying to achieve pregnancy will do so during the first cycle.
