And the byproduct of such reaction stories? The continued misinformation on what Catholics currently practice and what the Catholic Church actually teaches when it comes to family planning. Proponents of NFP say the method sand its practitioners, are too often misunderstood.
According to the World Health Organizationfertility awareness methods like NFP are percent effective when used correctly and consistently 75 percent with typical useand individual NFP models claim higher effectiveness. But while it may be more difficult than, say, popping a daily pill or using an IUD, modern technology — like tracking apps and temperature-monitoring gadgets — is simplifying the process and coinciding with a resurgence in popularity. NFP practitioners say they appreciate the choice it offers — whether the motivation is following Church teaching or simply avoiding synthetic hormones.
But the research actually went further. Generally a couple is not considered infertile until they have tried unsuccessfully for pregnancy for an entire year. Because of NaPro, women are now utilizing NFP to diagnose underlying infertility issues in order to get pregnant. Kaitlin Alfermann struggled with debilitating pain every month — coupled with extended absences from class and countless OB visits — throughout her teenage years before her mother consented to letting her go on the pill at age It helped, but in college, she rethought her treatment.
After charting her cycles, she visited an NFP practitioner who immediately diagnosed her with endometriosis, a painful condition in which the uterine lining grows outside of the uterus, often treated with surgery. Instead, she returned to her NFP practitioner.
And women learning the Creighton model are being given an alternative. Of course, this conversation is happening in the vacuum of the American context, where many women have access to Creighton and NaPro practitioners as well as any and every form of birth control method possible. When the very real result of unintended pregnancy could be health consequences like obstetric fistula or even death, the approach deserves more consideration.
More than three quarters of American Catholics think that the Church should sanction birth control ; more than half think a change in Church teaching will happen by And a international poll by Univision showed that global Catholics echo that: 78 percent of Catholics worldwide support the use of contraceptives.
But they do reinforce the idea that NFP is not to be conflated with irresponsible attitudes about procreation. Haley Stewart, who ran a series of stories from women who practice NFP on her website Carrots for Michaelmassaid her biggest takeaway from the series was how NFP respects and empowers the whole woman.
And oftentimes when the couples start getting that appreciation, they become more open to life. Whether talking about artificial contraception or natural family planning, there is one consensus: Access and education are essential. When it comes to NFP, practitioners insist more training, more knowledge, and more access are key.
Since many classes are taught through individual parishes, a lot of that dissemination of information is dependent on a priest who is educated in the methods — and comfortable discussing them.
