Natural methods are based on the awareness of fertility. They include some techniques for monitoring ovulation, that is, the release of the egg cell from the ovaries, to prevent (or research depending on the case) periods.
They are also called natural family planning methods.
The principle on which they are based is to avoid having unprotected sexual intercourse when the woman is most fertile (that is when she is more likely to become periods).
Prevent periods with natural methods
To not get periods, the woman can choose to abstain from vaginal intercourse on fertile days. Or she can use contraceptives such as condoms at that time. Interrupted coitus, which often leads to unwanted pregnancies, is not recommended.
How to postpone periods naturally home remedies
To understand when you are most likely to get periods, you need to become familiar with your body and your menstrual cycle. For a period to occur, the egg cell released from the ovaries at the moment of ovulation must unite with a sperm. This event is called fertilization. A woman, therefore, has days in which fertilization can take place, other days in which it is not possible, still others in which it is unlikely but still possible. To conceive a child, a woman must have vaginal intercourse, unprotected, during the days when the sperm can unite with the egg cell. These days are called fertile days.
A woman’s fertile days depend on the life span of the oocyte and sperm. The sperm can live inside the woman’s body for a maximum of 5 days (for some, even 6). On the other hand, the oocyte lives for a maximum of 24 hours after it was released from the ovaries.
Therefore, a woman has a fertile window of about eight days within her menstrual cycle (menstrual cycle = period from the beginning of menstruation to the day before the start of the following ones)
This interval includes the five days preceding ovulation, the day of ovulation itself, the day after ovulation and the day after (although unlikely). Knowing which fertile days are can help you avoid becoming periods or plan for one if you are looking for one.
Every woman should learn (regardless of the use of natural methods) how her body works, which are the fertile days and which are not. But to know, you need patience, dedication and a peak effort of attention, in addition to the spirit of observation. Not all women have the same fertility model, and some vary from month to month.
Home ovulation tests can help plan periods but are not reliable for preventing periods.
What are the most common natural methods?
Several methods help you know when you are about to ovulate. Cervical Mucus Method (or Billings Method): You can check for changes in cervical mucus every day until you are sure that you have ovulated. READ MORE
Basal temperature method: the temperature is measured in the morning every day, as soon as you wake up, before getting out of bed and doing any activity. READ MORE

Standard day method: Those who have a cycle that is always between 26 and 32 days (several months of observation are needed) should never have unprotected vaginal intercourse between the 8th and 19th days of the cycle. We can never be sure of ovulating in that interval, and therefore it is always good to associate the observations of the symptoms with this calculation.
How Effective Are Natural Methods?
When choosing a birth control method, EffectivenessEffectiveness is one of the most critical parameters that are evaluated.
Like all contraceptive methods, their EffectivenessEffectiveness depends on whether they are used correctly or not.
All birth control methods, natural or otherwise, are not effective if applied or used correctly.
For the Effectiveness of the various methods,
Success in using natural methods depends on both partners.
This is why both must know and deepen the method’s use and the principles that govern it and support each other in their use.
It is also essential:
Have received proper instruction on how to apply the method. For this reason, it is essential to rely at least for a first period on a teacher who teaches natural techniques (free service) and that you can find here: Natural methods teachers in India
have only one sexual partner who collaborates in applying the method
have consistency and precision in monitoring one’s fertility symptoms and mark them daily on a chart or g or a graphic designer.
abstaining or not having unprotected intercourse on fertile days
What are the advantages of choosing a natural method?
They cost very little.
They are safe (meaning they have no side effects)
They can be stopped or interrupted to plan a period.
Calendars, thermometers, and charts are readily available.
What are the disadvantages of natural methods?
Family planning methods are not suitable for you if:
you have more than one sexual partner
if your partner does not cooperate in the application of this method
do not monitor all symptoms carefully and daily
you are unable to abstain or use another barrier method of contraception during the approximately ten unsafe days of each menstrual cycle
take medications that can affect the observation and monitoring of symptoms
you have a vaginal infection or abnormal discharge
It could be tough to monitor the fertile days if
you have a very irregular cycle
you are teenagers
you are premenopausal
In these cases, the hormonal imbalances present can make the symptoms unpredictable.
Do not adopt a natural method immediately after stopping a hormonal contraceptive such as the pill. The hormones taken can affect your cycle for a shorter or longer period and make it challenging to observe the symptoms. If you try to avoid periods until the hormonal balance is restored, use other contraceptive methods.
How can I learn to use a natural / family planning method?
Couples should take a course or, as I said before, rely on the teacher of a natural method closest to their area of residence and traceable from here: Natural methods teachers in India is essential that the couple be united in this choice and in the path to take. This allows the method to be more effective and strengthens the bond and intimacy of the couple when they share the responsibility for birth control. Natural methods teachers do for free, and many courses promoted by associations and institutions are also free. The practices promoted by religious institutions generally do not allow the use of barrier methods on fertile days but promote the abstention from intimate contacts. Creating ovulation charts or calendars cost nothing but the time to compile and learn them.
