The natural plan WOMEN'S WORLD By DR NOR ASHIKIN MOKHTAR Natural family planning methods require an intimate understanding of the body and a woman’s menstrual cycle.
If you wish to use these natural methods, it is very important that you understand how it works and whether it is appropriate for your individual situation. Natural family planning requires more commitment and discipline, compared to other contraceptive methods, because it is not as simple as taking a daily pill or inserting a device. You should note that natural family planning methods do not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases, as there is no barrier (such as a condom) used. Natural family planning involves being aware of your body’s natural physiological changes and symptoms to identify the fertile and non-fertile phases of your menstrual cycle. If you want to avoid conception, you would abstain from sexual intercourse during your fertile period, but if you are trying to have a child, then you would try to have intercourse during those fertile phases. Couples can use natural family planning to space out their births and limit the number of children they want to have – both for health and economic reasons.
The article is very descriptive, it talks about cervical mucus.
