Natural family planning.

Abstract

An article on contraception is criticized for not mentioning natural family planning and the author points out that in recent pilot studies the Pearl Index was .8 for a combination of the Billings method of cervical mucus observation and the basal temperature methods. The Life Table index, which measures the number of pregnancies per 100 woman-cycles, was 1.3 and 1.9 for 2 consecutive years with the Billings method. Basic advantage to the physician is that clients selecting natural methods can be referred to natural family planning centers for instruction and follow-up. An advantage to the client is that there are no contraindications and abstinence is not a problem for those who wish to live in harmony with their fertility cycles.
