Approaches for incorporating ovulation detection devices and home kits into learning NFP--implications for service delivery.

Author information

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Reproductive Health Care, University of Manchester, Withington, UK.


This paper presents demographic data about use of NFP in Europe and the factors which have been identified as influencing that very low use level. Experience with a new ovulation detection device in clinical trials and observations of its over-the-counter promotions is discussed in the context of what is already known about how to maximize uptake of contraception in main-stream service provision. Some suggestions are offered as to appropriate means of encouraging women who are using artificial methods or no method to understand enough about their natural fertile cycle to consider NFP as an acceptable option.
