Take the Quiz - Single
Sympto-Thermal Method
Your best fit would most likely be the Sympto-Thermal Method. This involves charting several symptoms of fertility (basal body temperature, cervical mucus, sensation, and cervical position) in order to gather a complete picture of your fertility.
Marquette Model
Your best fit would most likely be the Marquette Model of Natural Family Planning. The Marquette Method tracks several signs of fertility, and also includes the use of a Fertility Monitor.
Single-Indicator Method
Your best fit would most likely be a Single-Indicator Method, such as the Billings Ovulation Method or the Creighton Model (NaPro Technology). These methods focus on one sign, which some people find preferable because of its simplicity. They are both highly effective and widely used.
No Method
Your best fit would be no method! Practicing NFP is totally optional, and there are many couples that choose not to “plan” the timing of their pregnancies and/or family size. Even though couples that practice NFP are open to life at all times, they may have serious reasons to avoid pregnancy, and therefore choose to practice a method to help them know when they are fertile or infertile on a day-to-day basis. But for some, this knowledge is not really necessary, and they find the mystery of not knowing very exciting and freeing.

A General Note:

Many find it helpful to swap methods at different stages of their family planning needs depending on their fertility goals and how their chosen method interacts with their stage of life (i.e. avoiding pregnancy in post-partum vs. trying to conceive or needing more in-depth analysis of their fertility). They may also take into consideration how many cross-checks of signs and symptoms they would like to have. Having a more full picture of their fertility gives some people peace of mind and flexibility in family planning.

If you answered “yes” to the infertility question…

…and would like to seek medical intervention to treat the root cause of your infertility, we would recommend seeking out the services of a NaPro Technology-Trained Physician, trained in the Creighton Model of Fertility Awareness. If you are in the Syracuse Diocese, click here to get in touch with Dr. Karen Dalton at the Gianna Center. If you are outside the Syracuse area, find a NaPro Medical Consultant near you by clicking here.

We want you to know that Natural Family Planning, in general, is an incredible gift to couples who are struggling with infertility. Unlike many common infertility treatments, which tend to focus on treating the symptoms of infertility, NFP will help you to pinpoint the root causes of your infertility in a completely licit manner, that is in line with Catholic teaching on the sexual act and procreation. Not only can it help couples to achieve pregnancy, it can also help them to treat the underlying causes of their infertility, so they will be able to more easily achieve pregnancy in the future.
