Just kiddin. ;)
Now listen up!! I need help.



I'm due with my son in April.
I do not wish to have any more babies for a few more years, after him.

I don't want to take birth control or use condoms.
I've had a negative experience with the oral pill in the past. Well, not completely negative. (: But it just simply will not be something I'll be willing to take.
I don't wanna do any shots, patches, IUDs.... all that stuff is freaky to me.

I want to try Natural Family Planning, pulling out, tracking and all that.


Can someone point me in the direction of how to go about doing that?
Do I need thermometers, any supplies? Obviously a calendar.

I will be breastfeeding him too. If that helps.


Please tell me how it goes and give me any and all tips that you can!


If I reply slowly, I'm not ignoring you. I am reading responses.
I'm just fighting off a headache and I'm trying to study. lol.
I will reply though. (:

Thanks in advance sexy mamas!

Get the book "Taking charge of your fertility." It has all the information you will need.

NFP is inaccurate at best.  If you're serioius about not wanting any more babies for a while I'd get an IUD.  That's what I did after nfp landed me with four babies.

LOL good luck. Why don't you take a poll on how many people tried NFP and had it fail.

This website talks all about it. There is also a book you can buy.

I wouldn't use pulling out with NFP, well I wouldn't use pulling out ever, but NFP can be excellent if you have regular/predictable cycles and still use condoms. 

If you're truly serious about not wanting kids for a while, you need to take some real barrier precautions.

I am serious. I do NOT want another child right now.

IUDs just make me feel so uncomfortable. I wouldn't like it at all. I'd anything before an IUD.

Or... you could use the diaphragm, much more reliable than pulling out.
