A Healthy Option For a Lifetime of Love
Natural Family Planning (NFP) is an umbrella term for the natural, healthy, morally acceptable methods of family planning recommended by the Catholic Church to help couples space, achieve, or avoid pregnancy. It can be used with irregular cycles, during breastfeeding/pre-menopause, and is scientifically proven to be 99% effective to avoid pregnancy. It is also very effective to help couples of marginal feritility achieve a much desired pregnancy. When couples live their vocation according to Church teachings, especially with regard to the transmission of life, many benefits can be reaped. Married couples who use Natural Family Planning (NFP) report that the benefits include: better communication between spouses; deeper understanding of each other; growth in patience and emotional maturity and growth in holiness as they seek to place God as the head of the household. Among the thousands of NFP users, these couples experience a less than 5% divorce rate as opposed to those using artifical methods at 50-60%.
