What are natural methods of family planning?

Natural methods of family planning is a way to help a couple determine when sexual intercourse can be and when it can not result in pregnancy. During each cycle, one woman's ovaries releases an egg. This process is called ovulation. The egg moves into the uterus through the fallopian tube where fertilization takes place. An unfertilized egg may live for 12-24 hours. The egg will be shed later during the menstrual cycle if it is not fertilized. A woman is most likely to become pregnant if intercourse occurs immediately before or after ovulation.

During the menstrual cycle, a number of changes occur in the body of the woman. By keeping track of these changes, couples can plan when to have intercourse and when to avoid depending on whether you are trying to avoid or achieve pregnancy.

How does natural family planning?

At present two methods are taught natural family planning. The first is the method of ovulation. In this method, we determine the days just before and just after ovulation reviewing the woman's cervical mucus. The cervical mucus is stretchy, clear and slick when the woman is most likely to get pregnant. Some people say that the cervical mucus during this time looks and feels much like the white of an egg that has not been cooked.

The second method is the method symptothermal. With this method, the woman takes her temperature each day with a thermometer and writes it down on a chart. At the time of ovulation of the woman temperature slightly increases. She also checks the consistency of your cervical mucus. She may also notice other changes such as pain in the area of ​​the ovaries, swelling, pain in the lower back and tenderness in the breasts.

In both methods, couples use a chart to keep track of changes in the female body.

How effective are these methods to help a couple avoid pregnancy?

These methods can help a couple avoid pregnancy if the couple receives training from a specialized instructor and if they carefully follow the instructions provided to them. Ask your doctor how to find an instructor who is specially trained in teaching natural family planning. Both methods can be effective between 90 and 98%-between two and ten pregnancies per 100 couples when practiced correctly. However, if couples do not follow the instructions completely, these methods will be much less effective. In practice, these methods may not be as safe as other forms of birth control.

Do methods of natural family planning can help a couple achieve a pregnancy?

Yes As many as two out of three couples who have no fertility problems getting pregnant if you have intercourse on the days when the cervical mucus is clear, and therefore stretches more.

What about the rhythm method?

The rhythm method is based on the calendar calculations regarding previous menstrual cycles. This method does not take into account the normal changes that occur and are common in the menstrual cycle. The rhythm method is not as secure as the ovulation method or the method symptothermal and generally not recommended. Women who have no variation in the length of their menstrual cycles can use the rhythm method to know when they are ovulating 14 days before the start of their period.

What about women with irregular cycles or nursing (breastfeeding)?

It is common for a woman to have menstrual cycles that are irregular either shorter or shorter than 28 days. A woman who has irregular menstrual cycles can still realize when you are ovulating by looking at the changes in your body.
