In simple terms, NFP is planning a family in a natural way by using women signs, symptoms and hormones to monitor their fertility. Knowing when women are fertile, they can intend to achieve a pregnancy, or, knowing when they are infertile, they can use those days to postpone a pregnancy, naturally without the use of artificial hormones or devices.
