Is natural family planning effective?
Natural planning consists of the couple meticulously charting the woman’s menstrual cycle and to abstain from sex on the days of ovulation when she is most fertile, usually around 14 days after her last period. This method requires time, patience, and commitment. It is an option for couple whose religious beliefs prohibit other contraceptive methods. What about the withdrawal method? The withdrawal method is when a man pulls out of the woman’s vagina before he ejaculates. This method is not very effective because small amounts of fluids are released during sex and before ejaculation that may result in pregnancy.
