Marquette Method of NFP
Online Classes and Training
Vitae Fertility Education
Vitae Fertility Education teaches the Marquette Method of Natural Family Planning (NFP), a highly effective method of NFP that employs the Clearblue line of home-based fertility monitors to track women’s hormone changes throughout each menstrual cycle.
The Marquette Method is one of the most effective forms of NFP. It is 99% effective in avoiding pregnancy when used correctly and with the expert advice of a trained Marquette instructor. The method is objective and relatively easy to learn, and typically requires less abstinence than other forms of NFP.
Your body is amazing. Human fertility is beautiful, and even a little mysterious. At Vitae Fertility Education we are passionate about empowering women and couples by teaching them how to read and interpret their natural fertile rhythms, allowing them to work with their fertility instead of suppressing it.
Why Choose Marquette?
Test your hormone levels once a day, record the results on your chart, and then move on with your life. Tracking hormone levels directly gives you an accurate, objective measure of fertility, so you don’t have to track mucus or temperatures (unless you want to).
It's Taught by Doctors and Nurses
NFP is healthcare. Marquette Method instructors are all physicians or Registered Nurses. We are trained in how to personalize the method to each client’s specific needs, preferences, and medical history.
The Marquette Method has specific, research-backed protocols for women in regular cycles, breastfeeding women, and women approaching menopause. It works, even if your cycles are irregular.
More Date Nights
Tracking hormone levels directly is so precise that, for many couples, it leads to more available days of intimacy.
