Natural Family Planning
Natural family planning is a method where you learn about your body and teaches you how to lower the chances of getting pregnant without using contraception. This can also be used when planning to have a baby.
What else should I know?
It takes three to six menstrual cycles to learn the method. You have to keep a daily record of your fertility signals, such as your temperature and the fluids coming from your cervix.
Fertility signals can be affected by illness, stress and travel.
If you want to have sex during your fertile time (which lasts around eight days a month), use a condom.
By using condoms as well as natural family planning, you'll help to protect yourself against sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
