I think you are referring to contraception vs natural family planning. Natural family planning has a high failure rate often resulting in unplanned pregnancy. Contraceptive methods empower the woman to be pregnant when she wants to be. Various birth control methods have other non contraceptive benefits as well.

With a user effectiveness of 98%, Creighton Model FertilityCare System as a method of family planning is excellent. I therefore respectfully disagree that NFP has a high fail rate. Each NFP method focuses on a specific set of fertility signs and a formal set of instructions for use, which can accurately identify the fertile window and empower the couple in their family planning needs.
