Natural Methods

This section covers methods of natural contraception, withdrawal and abstinence.

The natural methods of contraception teach women how to determine the fertile phase (essentially a period of 7 to 10 days) of their menstrual cycle. To avoid pregnancy, women avoid sexual intercourse the fertile days.

There are many variations of the natural methods of contraception. The most effective methods to teach women to record fertility signs that fluctuate over the natural hormonal changes each menstrual cycle. There are two main approaches: 1) Symptothermal approach where the waking temperature and mucus observations are recorded, and 2) the approach to the observation of mucus where the cervical mucus only is recorded.

It is useful for women and their partners to know the two most common methods:
1) The method for determining the fertile period (DPF) refers to the natural contraception method outside of a religious framework that supports the use of barrier methods (condom, diaphragm and spermicide), contraception emergency and abortion. Justisse is a Canadian variant of the method of DPF that teaches both Symptothermal approaches and mucus observation only.
2) Natural Family Planning (NFP) refers primarily to natural contraception is taught and practiced within a religious framework, mostly by Catholic organizations. It does not support the use of barrier methods for emergency contraception or abortion. The Billings Ovulation Method teaches to observe the mucus only. The methods and Serena Couple to Couple League are variants of Symptothermal NFP. The Creighton model teaches both Symptothermal approaches and mucus observation only.

Understanding methods of natural contraception
Symptothermal method of DPF and NFP is explained below. It is considered the most effective of all the natural methods of contraception.

Symptothermal method teaches women observation, recording and interpretation of their waking temperature (BBT) and cervical observation to know the days of fertility and infertility mucus. They can then see when they can get pregnant or not after sex.

A woman who has a regular menstrual cycle will usually experience the following sequence of events:
• menstruation for three to seven days;
• Lack of sensation or appearance of mucus in the vagina or vulva for several days;
• wet or slippery sensation of mucus in the vagina or vulva for several days, which gradually becomes more slippery, elastic and clear approach of ovulation;
• After ovulation, the waking temperature increases, the mucus disappears from the vulva and vagina and vulva seem drier.

The fertile days begin with the first sensation of mucus at the vulva and continue until dry mucus and waking temperature is high for three consecutive days. The days of high fertility and low fertility determined, a woman can plan intercourse to avoid or result in pregnancy.

Here is a link about the Shettles Method

Choosing Gender
The prospect of choosing your child’s gender is a common wish with several possible techniques. The effectiveness of these natural means is still controversial. Ultimately, your first priority should always be for the health of your child regardless of gender. Still, there are instances where parents might hope for a specific gender. Frequently this occurs when a family has several children who are all the same sex (for example all boys) and would also like a child of the opposite sex (a girl) to balance the family.
One popular approach is the Shettles Method

It does work. It requires education,

Communication, body awareness, charting, and self-control. Artificial BC does not. People who don't want to be bothered with those things choose artificial BC.
As far as effectiveness:
"For a contraceptive method to be rated as highly efficient as the hormonal pill, there should be less than one pregnancy per 100 women per year when the method is used correctly. The pregnancy rate for women who used the STM [symptothermal method, a form of NFP] method correctly in our study was 0.4%, which can be interpreted as one pregnancy occurring per 250 women per year
