In that scenerio, you can expect the effectiveness rate of the spermicide. The calender method is not very reliable, since every woman is bound to ovulate early or late from time to time. Calender calculations don't account for that.

However, modern Natural Family Planning methods are 96-99% effective, but that's without spermicide. NFP means you observe your signs of fertility as they occur and make no assumptions about when ovulation may or may not happen. Abstinence is practised during times of fertility. Spermicide obscures cervical mucus and the ability to make accurate mucus observations, and so charting is less accurate and effectiveness decreases. Also, using a spermicide during the MOST fertile part of the cycle is more likely to result in pregnancy - so abstinence during fertility is what gives it a 96-99% effectiveness rate.

The Fertility Awareness Method is when you chart signs of feritlity and use a barrier (such as spermicide). It's more effective than the calender method because you'll have a better idea of when you are actually fertile, but because spermicide is the only thing protecting you during times of fertility, you can expect the effectiveness rate of spermicide only.

Hope that clarifies a bit! Good luck!
