|Natural Family Planning: Increasing numbers of women are seeking a fertility control method that does not require the use of contraceptive drugs or devices. Nature has provided various indications that ovulation is occurring, or has occurred. Recent scientific discoveries have shown that the cervix generates the most important symptoms of ovulation.|
natural family planning subjects indexed in this page are
fundamental topics in modern natural family planning.
Because of its essential role we first address the subject of abstinence.
The other natural family planning pages linked to this index introduce the important biological and physiological processes underlying natural family planning as exemplified by the Billings Method.
|Link 2 is to a page on a woman's reproductive physiology. This covers all the important elements including hormones and ovulation, using two detailed diagrams.|
|Link 3 is to a page on the crypts of the cervix and the types of mucus that these crypts generate. These mucus cause the vulva symptoms which underlie the Billings Ovulaton Method. The cervix is a precision organ as complex as the human eye and discoveries are still being made about its function.|
|Link 4 is to a page describing the natural and unnatural processes of development and ageing of the cervix.|
|Link 5 is to a sequence of fourteen annotated diagrams which portray the state of the reproductive organs throughout a typical ovulatory cycle.|
|Link 6 is to an equivalent animation based on the fourteen diagrams of the overall reproductive system accessed through link 5. Each state of the reproductive system is portrayed in association with the stages of fertility and infertility which are identified in the Billings Method.(The animations will take some time to transfer onto your computer.)|
|Link 7 is to a sequence of fourteen annotated diagrams which portray the state of the cervix throughout a typical ovulatory cycle.|
|Link 8 is to an animation of the cervix behaviour over the ovulatory cycle. Each state of the cervix is portrayed in association with the stages of fertility and infertility which are identified in the Billings Method. (The animations will take some time to transfer onto your computer.)|
|Link 9 is to a page on the effects of the contraceptive pill.|
|Link 10 is to the information directly associated with using the Billings Method.|
