Natural Family Planning is the best method out there! That is what my husband and I used for a year (along with a barrier method when i was fertile) and it doesn't introduce any hormones into your body messing with weight gain, emotions etc. It might sound like alot of work, but there are some great programs out there that make it quite easy actually.
Go to ovusoft.com and download the program. It's $30 that you will not regret spending, and it's a lifetime membership, not a monthly payment. So it's really cheap compared to other methods! You will need to keep track of your cycles and and fertility signs (the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility tells you more about that) and enter it into their database. Then, you get to know your body very well, alot faster than you would think.
One of the other great side benefits is that you get to use it one month to prevent pregnancy and use it the next to get pregnant!
