The Marquette Method is a type of natural family planning (NFP). Couples observe and track signs of fertility. Equipped with that information, couples can then change their behaviors to avoid or achieve pregnancy.

 

The Marquette Method uses two main indicators to determine fertility: cervical mucus observations and urinary hormone measurements. One or both signs are tracked based on user preference, and then combined with a simple protocol to determine the days pregnancy is possible.

LOVE YOUR SPOUSE FULLY

Using Natural Family Planning allows you to give yourself fully to your spouse without placing any barriers, whether chemical or physical, between each other. This means your love is authentic and respects the truth of the human person.

AVOID PREGNANCY EFFECTIVELY

The Marquette Method has demonstrated high effectiveness for couples avoiding pregnancy in several studies, with typical use effectiveness over 98% among women in regular cycles.

HELP ACHIEVE PREGNANCY

Charting your fertility will help you identify your most fertile days, and can reduce the time to achieve pregnancy, or help you time conception better. Knowing your peak in fertility can even give you a better estimate of your due date.

KNOW YOUR BODY AND YOUR HEALTH

Healthy cycles are a strong indicator of overall health. Some health issues can be identified in charting, and Marquette instructors, as healthcare professionals, are able to give you recommendations within their scope of practice and guide you on where to find medical treatment that respects your fertility.
