Marquette Model

The Marquette Model 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 Model 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. This method is suitable for women with regular cycles, irregular cycles, women who are breastfeeding, postpartum, or approaching menopause.
