Abstract


Natural family planning refers to the planning of sexual intercourse according to the desire of pregnancy by observing some symptoms occurring in women in the fertile and infertile periods of the menstrual cycle. These family planning methods have advantages, disadvantages, and applying rules. They are effective when properly applied and their rules are followed. Recently, new methods have been added to the previously known methods using electronic equipment. Health care providers should respect the choice of couples' natural family planning methodology, be aware of the options of natural family planning methods, and provide appropriate resources/advice for the correct use of the method chosen by a woman or couple.
