IRON MOUNTAIN - Will and Monica Shampo of Iron Mountain will begin teaching classes in the sympto-thermal method of natural family planning.
One class series will begin Saturday, Sept. 15 at 9 a.m. in Iron Mountain. The other series will begin Tuesday, Sept. 18 at 6:30 p.m. in Iron Mountain.
The Shampos are certified NFP teachers through the Couple to Couple League.
NFP is ideal in that it can be used to avoid pregnancy, but it can also aid normally or marginally fertile couples seeking pregnancy. It is accepted by all major religious groups. The Sympto-Thermal method of NFP is as effective as the birth control pill in postponing pregnancy when properly used. NFP has no hormones, no side effects, has no negative impact on the environment and can be used successfully by women with irregular cycles.
