Natural Family Planning

Natural Family Planning or as many simply call it "NFP", is a holistic and healthy way of planning a family. Essentially, it is the ability to monitor fertility and to modify behaviors according to the intention of either achieving or avoiding pregnancy.

The Marquette Model (MM) system of NFP brings 21st century technology to NFP by using newly developed hormonal fertility monitoring devices that are designed to accurately measure reproductive hormones in urine to estimate the beginning and end of the fertile time of a women's menstrual cycle. The information from these hormonal devices can be used alone or in conjunction with other observable biological indicators of fertility. Multiple evidence based studies have documented the effectiveness of the MM in helping women and couples avoid and achieve pregnancy not only among women with regular menstrual cycles but also during special reproductive situations such as the postpartum and perimenopause transitions.

Marquette Method educated healthcare professionals help new learners gain confidence in management and self-interpretation of women's natural biological signs of fertility, biological signs which are considered vital for understanding and assessing women’s health.
