Natural family planning


Published on

be guided accordingly folks...

  • It is worth to mention NFP fertility montors (like Lady-Comp, Baby-Comp, Daysy) - there are not only very reliable (also for irregular cycles) but easy to use and clinically proven.

    Women who are health-conscious have a safe, reliable alternative for contraception not only ion natural family planning methods but also in fertility monitors, like Lady-Comp, a state-of-the-art fertility computer that monitors fertility with 99.3% clinically proven accuracy. The fertility calculator has been engineered to carefully track a woman’s fertility by drawing upon advanced bio-mathematical forecasting and extensive information drawn from over 900,000 cycles of thousands of women with unique fertilities.

    Lady-Comp also leverages specialized computer software to track, monitor, and store a woman’s unique fertility information. Over time, it uses an advanced machine learning ability to adjust itself to a woman’s unique cycle, regardless of any irregularities or cycle length. All is required is that its user take a daily temperature reading, which takes only 30 seconds, and the user is quickly made aware of her fertility status.

  3. 4. <ul><li>Have no medical side effects </li></ul><ul><li>Immediate return to fertility </li></ul><ul><li>Free and readily available </li></ul><ul><li>Use increases knowledge of female reproductive physiology </li></ul><ul><li>Use may improve communication between partners </li></ul>
  4. 5. DISADVANTAGES: <ul><li>High failure rate </li></ul><ul><li>Require high motivation and ability to follow instructions </li></ul><ul><li>Require partner's cooperation </li></ul><ul><li>Couple practicing periodic abstinence must abstain from intercourse for a significant period of time every month </li></ul><ul><li>No protection from STI’s/HIV </li></ul><ul><li>May be difficult to detect a woman's fertile period (close to menarche, close to menopause, during breastfeeding, or in women with irregular cycles) </li></ul>
  5. 6. What are the natural family planning methods???
  6. 7. <ul><ul><li>Basal body temperature </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cervical mucus (billing’s) method </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sympto – thermal method </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Calendar (rhythm) method </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lactational amenorrhea method </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pre-coital or post-coital douche </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Withdrawal or coitus interruptus </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Coitus reservatus </li></ul></ul>
  7. 8. BASAL BODY TEMPERATURE METHOD <ul><li>this birth control method involves charting your core body temperature throughout your menstrual cycle . </li></ul><ul><li>For this natural birth control to work, a woman needs to take her temperature every day, first thing in the morning before she gets out of bed. </li></ul>
  8. 9. <ul><li>Just before the day of ovulation, a women’s basal body temperature (BBT) falls about 0.5 F </li></ul><ul><li>At time of ovulation, her BBT rises a full degree because of influence of progesterone. </li></ul><ul><li> - this higher level is then maintained for the rest of menstrual cycle. </li></ul><ul><li>It prevents fertilization by not allowing sexual intercourse during women’s fertile periods. </li></ul>
  9. 10. <ul><li>Advantages: </li></ul><ul><li>No systemic or long-term effects </li></ul><ul><li>Enhances communication between Couple </li></ul>
  10. 11. <ul><li>Disadvantages: </li></ul><ul><li>High failure rate </li></ul><ul><li>Requires several days of abstinence </li></ul><ul><li>Learning to correlate temperature changes with fertility may take several months to practice. </li></ul><ul><li>Physical conditions that cause a rise in temp. will interfere with fertility interpretations. </li></ul><ul><li>Its not appropriate for a women with medical contraindication to pregnancy </li></ul>
  11. 12. CERVICAL MUCUS (BILLINGS) METHOD <ul><li>women use to monitor their fertility, by identifying when they are fertile and when they are infertile during each menstrual cycle . </li></ul><ul><li>Before ovulation each month, the cervical mucus is thick and doesn’t strecth when pulled bet. thumb and finger. </li></ul>
  12. 13. <ul><li>With ovulation in the peak day, cervical mucus become: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Copious - Watery </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Thin - Transparent </li></ul></ul><ul><li>It feels slippery and stretch at list 1 in before the strands breaks. before the strands breaks called “spinnbarkeit”. </li></ul><ul><li>Advantages: </li></ul><ul><li>No systemic or long term side-effects </li></ul><ul><li>No cost </li></ul>
  13. 14. <ul><li>Disadvantages: </li></ul><ul><li>High failure rate </li></ul><ul><li>Requires several days of abstinence </li></ul><ul><li>Learning how to interpret symptoms of fertility may take several months of practice. </li></ul><ul><li>Physical conditions such as presence of vaginal infection will interfere with observation of mucus. </li></ul>
  15. 16. <ul><li>It is combined with the use of cervical mucus and BBT method. </li></ul><ul><li>The woman takes her temp. daily </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Watching for the rise in temp. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Analyze her cervical mucus daily </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The couple must abstain from intercourse until 3 days after rising temp. and after mucus change, this are the women’s fertile days. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This method is more effective compare to the 2 methods. </li></ul></ul>
  16. 17. <ul><li>Advantages: </li></ul><ul><li>No systemic or long term effects </li></ul><ul><li>Acceptable to roman catholic </li></ul><ul><li>Disadvantages: </li></ul><ul><li>High failure rate </li></ul><ul><li>Requires several days of abstinence. </li></ul><ul><li>Learning how to interpret of symptoms make several months to practice </li></ul>
  17. 18. CALENDAR (RHYTHM) METHOD <ul><li>It requires a couple to abstain from coitus on the days of a menstrual cycle when the woman is most likely to conceive. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>3 or 4 days before until 3 or 4 days after ovulation. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Is used to indicate the time of ovulation. Usually counting the wet and dry days of menstruation. </li></ul>
  18. 19. EXAMPLE:
  19. 20. <ul><li>Advantages: </li></ul><ul><li>No systemic or long term effects </li></ul><ul><li>No cost </li></ul><ul><li>Acceptable to Roman Catholic church </li></ul><ul><li>Requires no medication or devices </li></ul>
  20. 21. <ul><li>Disadvantages: </li></ul><ul><li>high failure rate </li></ul><ul><li>Requires several days of abstinence </li></ul><ul><li>Not appropriate to women with medical contraindications to pregnancy </li></ul><ul><li>Inappropriate for women with very irregular menstruations </li></ul><ul><li>Complicated to administer </li></ul>
  21. 22. <ul><li>As long as the woman is breast feeding an infant, there is some natural suppression of ovulation. </li></ul><ul><li>It suppresses ovulation because suckling changes the body's physiology so that ovulation does not occur. </li></ul><ul><li>“ No egg, no pregnancy”. </li></ul>
  22. 23. <ul><li>However, if the infant is receiving supplemental feeding, this method of birth control is questionable because women may ovulate but not menstruate while breast feeding </li></ul><ul><li>As a rule of thumb, after 6 months, the breastfeeding women are advised to choose another method of contraception. </li></ul>
  23. 24. <ul><li>Advantages; </li></ul><ul><li>No cost </li></ul><ul><li>Acceptable to RC </li></ul><ul><li>No systemic or long term effects </li></ul><ul><li>Effecteve for short term </li></ul><ul><li>Disadvantages: </li></ul><ul><li>High failure rate </li></ul><ul><li>Temporary measures </li></ul><ul><li>Not realable if infant takes supplemental feedings. </li></ul>
  24. 26. PRE-COITAL and POST COITAL DOUCHE <ul><li>Vinegar and brine which are highly spermicidal substance are prescribed as pre-coital douche. </li></ul>
  26. 28. <ul><li>One of the oldest known methods of contraception. </li></ul><ul><li>The couple proceeds to coitus until ejaculation then the mans withdraws HIS PENIS and the spermatozoa are emitted outside the vagina. </li></ul>
  27. 29. <ul><li>Advantages: </li></ul><ul><li>No cost </li></ul><ul><li>No medication or devices </li></ul><ul><li>No health risks </li></ul><ul><li>Disadvantages: </li></ul><ul><li>Unfortunately ejaculation may occur even if withdrawal is complete </li></ul><ul><li>Fertilization may occur </li></ul><ul><li>Offers little protection against conception. </li></ul><ul><li>Reduces sexual pleasure. </li></ul>
  28. 30. Coitus reservatus <ul><li>also known as karezza, is a form of sexual intercourse in which the man does not attempt to ejaculate within his partner, but instead attempts to remain at the plateau phase of intercourse for as long as possible. </li></ul><ul><li>The term &quot;karezza&quot; was coined by the physician Alice Bunker Stockham . </li></ul>
  30. 33. Vasectomy
  31. 34. <ul><li>Vasectomy involves severing the vas deferens, the tubes that carry sperm into a man's ejaculate, thereby making him infertile. </li></ul><ul><li>The procedure takes less than 30 minutes and is usually done in a doctor's office and local anesthetic is given to help make the procedure less painful. </li></ul>
  32. 35. Tubal Ligation <ul><li>is a surgical procedure whereby a woman's fallopian tubes are cut, clamped, blocked or tied to prevent her eggs from traveling down to her uterus. </li></ul><ul><li>It also blocks the sperm from traveling along the tube to meet the egg. </li></ul><ul><li>In some cases, a woman may choose to have a hysterectomy. </li></ul><ul><li>This is when the entire uterus (and possibly the fallopian tubes, ovaries and/or cervix) is removed. Unlike a tubal ligation, a hysterectomy is not reversible. </li></ul>
