Fertility Awareness Based Methods of
Natural Family Planning | FAB/NFP
Fertility Awareness Based Natural Family Planning (FAB/NFP) includes a number of different methods used in pregnancy planning. These methods can accurately be used to achieve or avoid pregnancy. They do not involve medications, hormones or implantable devices. FABM/NFP methods involve keeping track of a woman’s naturally occurring bodily changes that take place throughout her menstrual cycle. Observation of these changes can then be used to achieve or avoid pregnancy as desired, 100% naturally – without drugs, hormones or contraceptive devices. A wide variety of FABM/NFP methods exist.
Whether you wish to avoid contraceptive pills, hormones and devices for religious reasons – or you simply prefer a more natural approach to family planning – we respect and support your choices. Choosing the right birth control method for you as a couple is very important to achieve the desired results.
