Natural Family Planning


The Marquette Model brings 21st-century technology to NFP by using the Clearblue Easy Fertility Monitor, a device used at home that measures hormone levels in urine to pinpoint ovulation. The information from this monitor is then used in conjunction with observations of cervical mucus or basal body temperatures to confidently determine the woman's fertile times.
