Sa wakas, meron palang Natural Family Planning (NFP) method na gawa ng Pilipino para sa Pilipino.  Subok na ito at ginagamit na mula pa noong 1966.

Ang nag-develop ng method na ito ay ang mag-asawa na sina Tatay Ely at Nanay Feling Porsuelo.  Sila itong nasa inset picture, kasama sina Dr. John at Dr. Evelyn Billings (ang nag-develop ng Billings Ovulation Method).  Sila ay mga miyembro ng Vatican Pontifical Council on Family.


Ang method na ito ay ni-review ng pitong (7) doktor matapos itong magamit at ma-develop sa field...at mai-dokumento gamit ng 4,000 users.

Ang mag-asawang Fely at Feling Porsuelo lang ang Pilipino sa Pontifical Council on Family.  Sila ay kinilala sa kanilang "pioneering work" sa grassroots level.


Ang buong pangalan ng NFP na ito ay "Nanay Feling Porsuelo's Method and Values"


Ang strongest feature ng method na ito ay ang pagpapatibay nito sa pagsasama ng mag-asawa dahil ito ay sinamahan ng values.


Ang Porsuelo Method ay simplified charting na kayang gawin nang kahit sino, anuman ang antas ng pinag-aralan. 

Ang unang gumamit nito ay ang mga kasamahan sa trabaho ni Tatay Ely sa  Del Monte Corporation, at ang mga kapitbahay nila ni Nanay Feling sa Philips, Bukidnon.

Porsuelo Mucus Method


Porsuelo Basal Body Temperature (BBT) Method


Porsuelo Sympto-Thermal Method


Hanggang ngayon nagtuturo pa rin si Nanay Feling sa mga trainors ng NFP.



Last Saturday, Aug. 27, 2011, isang grupo kami ng mga couples, professional, doktor (Ob. Gyn), facilitator, etc...na tinuruan mismo ni Nanay Feling.  Lola na siya ngayon.  Namayapa na si Tatay Ely, tulad ni Dr. John Billings na wala na rin.

Hi Daddy Jojo. Salamat po sa pag-post ninyo tungkol dito. Natuwa kaming mag-asawa noong nakita namin na nag-attribute ka ng paggamit ng slides mula sa CFC-FFL presentation na ginawa namin, at pati na din sa photo na ginamit sa cbcpfor life.  Taga-community din po ba kayo? Magtuturo din po ba kayo ng Porsuelo?

Hi Sis Debbie,

Advocate po ako ng Natural Family Planning as early as 1998, nang mag-work ako sa isang NGO on Natural Family Planning na may People's Organization (PO's) all over the country.  Funded ito ng Georgetown University.  Since 2005, active na ako sa unang discussion group ng Smart Parenting.

Hindi po ako member ng CFC-FFL.  Active kami ng wife ko sa Family Life Apostolate (FLA).

Unang naging concern ko ang pagshare ng information tungkol sa NFP nang yung mismong priest na nag-interview sa amin before our wedding...eh Rhythm Method pa ang notion tungkol sa NFP.

Last Aug. 27, 2011 lang po namin nalaman ang tungkol sa Porsuelo Method. Pinadala kami ng parish namin para magtrain sa St. Michael's, Antipolo. 

Pagkauwi namin, naghanap agad ako ng resources sa internet at ito lang slides ng CFC-FFL ang nakita ko.    I've been monitoring this thread,  Nakakatuwa na naka-120 views na ito.

I've been quiet in this forum about NFP.  Na-realize ko na mukhang nagagamit na ang mga sineshare ko dito, not only as family planning methods by married couples, but, sadly, as a form of contraception by those who engage in premarital sex. 

I'm thinking of stopping from discussing other methods and focus on the Porsuelo Method.

Naniniwala ako na ang Porsuelo Method ang sagot, hindi lang sa pagpaplano ng pamilya, kundi ganun din sa mas matibay na pagsasama ng mag-asawa.

Sa forum na ito, maraming kuwento ng di pagkakaunawaan at paghihiwalay ng mag-asawa.  Nakakalungkot ito.  I'll be reading more articles on the Contraceptive Mentality.  Dahil sa pag-iisip na ang sex ay plain physical pleasure lang...nasisira ang pagsasama ng mag-asawa.  Ang physical ay nagbabago at hindi nagtatagal.  Kaya karamihan ng kuwento rito ay pambababe ng asawang lalaki. 

Sa Porsuelo Method, na-affirm ang paniniwala na ang sex ay isa sa maraming expression ng pagmamahalan ng mag-asawa.  Pinagtitibay nito ang kanilang bond.

Ginagamit namin ngayon ang Porsuelo Method.  First month pa lang.  We hope to return to training and meet Nanay Feling Porsuelo again this November.  Afterwards we hope to be certified and be able to teach the method.

The Porsuelo Method is appropriate for married couples who are planning to postpone pregnancy through the safe and effective natural methods and also, to those who want to achieve pregnancy.  Mrs. Felicidad Porsuelo, is one of the Philippine pioneers in natural family planning education. She and her husband Eli (+) first learned NFP in 1965 and started NFP charting since 1966.

By 1980 they completed charting rules for the Basal Body Temperature and the Ovulation Methods. They also developed the Sympto-Thermal Method Rules. They were members of the Pontifical Council of the Family from 1980-1990, as well have been official Delegates to the 1980 Synod of Family, 1985 Synod of Laity, Canonization of St. Lorenzo Ruiz and a contributor to the International Year of the Family in 1994. Drawing from scientifically proven natural methods, she and her husband developed, used and taught, since 1973, what is now fondly known as the Porsuelo method.

Godly values can avert contraceptive mentality among couples – NFP trainor

from: http://cbcpforlife.com/?p=3044

Right values and proper disposition to accept the teachings of the Church on the regulation of birth are sure ways to make the natural family planning (NFP) method successful, an NFP trainor said.

“Nay” Feling Porsuelo, one of the country’s pioneers in NFP education warned that a contraceptive mentality is possible even when the couple is using natural methods if there is no correct and proper disposition to embrace the core teaching of Humanae Vitae, Pope Paul Vl’s trailblazing and controversial encyclical on responsible parenthood and the regulation of birth.

But family planning rooted in the Godly values imbued by marital intimacy which accepts that every child is a divine gift will avert any contraceptive mentality, she said.

Porsuelo has developed the safest and most inexpensive alternative grassroots natural method, dubbed as the Porsuelo method.

The surest way to ensure the sanctity of marriage and repel a promiscuous lifestyle is an effective natural method of fertility regulation which does not have side effects, which oral contraceptives do, she added.

Nay Feling spoke at a workshop conducted on August 6 at the Parish of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary in Rosario Complex, San Pedro, Laguna for NFP trainors under the Diocesan Commission on Family and Life (DCFL).

Fr. Jerry Oblepias, Director of the DCFL said the Diocese of San Pablo is promoting the Porsuelo method of natural family planning which has been endorsed by Manila Archbishop Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales.

The Porsuelo method uses all methods–basal body temperature, mucus, breastfeeding, and sympto-thermal with the values component given through workshops.

Nay Feling, who hails from Bukidnon, and her late husband Eli first learned NFP in 1965.

For their pioneering effort, the Porsuelos were invited to Rome. They convinced experts there of the effectiveness of the innovative method as a safe NFP method. The couple were appointed members of the Pontifical Commission for the Family. (George Dee)

Hi, my husband and I would like to learn more about this method.  Will there be any seminars regarding this for 2013? Thank you.

Hi alys

We were supposed to conclude our training for the Porsuelo Method on November 2011.  That would have made us certified to echo what we learned.  However, it was discontinued.  The training we had was based on the availability of Nanay Feling Porsuelo and the hosting of St. Michael Retreat House in Antipolo.  Everything had been dependent mainly on minimal funding through donations and volunteer church workers of the Family and Life Apostolate - Diocese of Antipolo. 

I could only help you and your husband through a simpler yet similarly effective Natural Family Planning...a modified Standard Days Method (SDM) which I have been developing for several years now.  You can check out my posts here: Natural Family Planning, switch anyime, start from nothing . I am familiar with around 8 to10 Natural Family Planning (NFP) Methods.

I believe that the Porsuelo Method and Values is the most effective and most holistic of all.  It's for extending a couple's Honeymoon while having the choice to delay/postpone or not opting for pregnancy...as well as trying to achieve it. However, it needs sufficient time to be studied and practiced

To inquire about trainings on the Porsuelo Method, you may try to contact the following:

Ang Natural Family Planning (NFP) na "Porsuelo Method and Values" ay halos kasabay na na-develop ng Billings Method.
