The IGNFP is the umbrella organisation of the NFP associations active in Switzerland.

What is NFP (Natural Family Planning)?

NFP includes three different but complementary concepts:
  • NFP methods are means by which a couple use the daily observation of signs and symptoms of the fertile and infertile phases of the menstrual cycle to guide the timing of intercourse according to their desire to achieve or avoid a pregnancy.
  • NFP is a way of life, involving temporary sexual abstinence, freely chosen by the couple to achieve their family project and to enrich their sexuality and conjugal dialogue.
  • NFP is an educational process. Through the help of professionals and non professionals the community teaches the youth the responsibilities of adulthood, prepares the engaged for marriage and develops the couple to a fully mature relationship and to autonomy.
