Natural Family Planning

Natural Family Planning (NFP) is an umbrella term for healthy, effective methods used to achieve or avoid pregnancy that are based on observing certain naturally-occurring signs in the woman that indicate fertile and infertile phases of her menstrual cycle. There are several different methods of NFP offered at Morning Star OB/GYN. Each method offered boasts 99% effectiveness rates at postponing pregnancy when used properly, the same as hormonal contraception, yet without the chemicals.

All sessions are taught individually (only one couple and the instructor). Over 15 major insurance plans that we accept cover the cost of the classes as preventive care for family planning. The supplies fee, however, is the responsibility of the couple. Additional consultations and refreshers are also available as needed.

Below you will find links to photos and examples of the NFP methods we offer at Morning Star:

  • Billings Model
  • Creighton Model
  • Family of the Americas
  • Sympto-Thermal

    Here's a guide to help you discern which NFP method is right for you.
