The Marquette Method of NFP is especially popular, and especially effective, in the phases of a woman’s fertile life when cycles are irregular or disrupted and thus particularly difficult to navigate with other forms of NFP. The Marquette Method can be used with confidence in these “special circumstances,” including:
- Breastfeeding women
- Coming off hormonal birth control
- Short and long cycles
- Women in peri-menopause
- Women with health conditions that affect fertility, including hormone imbalances, thyroid conditions, etc.
Because the Marquette Method is only taught by doctors and Registered Nurses, the method is potentially much more than a way to avoid pregnancy. Your charts reveal much about your underlying health, and your instructor will refer you to a health specialist should your charts reveal a possible health issue.
