NFP has a lower success rate than the pill. Is this fact or fiction?

This is fiction! NFP methods have effectiveness rates on par with the Pill - but without any of the risks or side effects.

Planned Parenthood reports an effectiveness rate of 92% for the Pill, in the first year of typical use and 99% for perfect use.

Billings Ovulation Method: with proper instruction, the Billings Ovulation Method in actual practice is 99.64% effective. (Dr. Catherine Bernard, Ob. Gyn., Family Life Centre, India)
Effectiveness trials: http://www.woomb.org/bom/trials/index.html
Billings and IUD comparison trial: http://www.woomb.org/omrrca/bulletin/vol27...Evaluation.html

Creighton Model: 96.8 - 99.5% effective
Effectiveness Trials: http://www.fertilitycare.org/crms/effectiveness.htm

Couple to Couple League Sympto Thermal Method: 99% effective
Effectiveness Trials: http://ccli.org/nfp/basics/effectiveness-p02.php
