Inclu­des all con­tracep­tive methods that do not affect hor­mo­nes or the body in gene­ral. There are the­re­fore no side effects. Natu­ral con­tracep­tive methods are based on the mens­trual cycle and deter­mine both the fer­tile and infer­tile days of a mens­trua­ting per­son. Fer­ti­li­sa­tion of the egg is pre­ven­ted without the help of arti­fi­cial hor­mo­nes. Examp­les of hor­mone-free con­tracep­tion include the sym­ptoher­mal method, tem­pe­ra­ture method, cycle com­pu­ter or bar­rier methods.
