Response to demosincebirth (Original post)

1. The difference is natural versus artificial means as well as intent.

 

Contraception uses artificial measures to deliberately prevent conception.

The rhythm method, by tracking ovulation cycles, identifies days of greatest fertility. The method, then, is to abstain from sex on those days but it leaves open the possibility of conception.

The first method intends to prevent conception (contra ception); the second intends to avoid conception.
