Over the years there has been a lot of developments and innovations in the field of natural methods. This inevitably led to a certain degree of confusion with regard to the quality, practicability and reliability of the information available. To differentiate and distinguish it-self from other methods, the method of the Malteser Arbeitsgruppe NFP was branded in October 2010: Sensiplan® (trademark).

The product is protected not only in Europe, but also in other countries. It stands for a family planning method that reflects evidence-based current scientific standards.
