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.
Who can use the Marquette Model of NFP?
- Couples seeking to space pregnancies
- Couples struggling with infertility
- Breastfeeding women
- Perimenopausal women
- Women with irregular cycles
- Women interested in health monitoring
How can you learn more about NFP?
The Marquette University Institute for Natural Family Planning provides professional services for those who wish to practice NFP.

Couples also meet with the nurse individually to discuss their unique needs.
