I don't really have specific questions on it. Just do you use it, do you like it? Any book recommendations? Thanks

Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler

Great book, you can even get charts for free on her website tcoyf.com

We've used NFP or Fertility Awareness Method (b/c we use barriers during fertile phases) and it works great for us! I like that I'm not exposing my body to fake hormones and just letting my body do what it needs to do every month.

I agree. BC pills are super hard on your body. I will look into those books. Thanks!

I checked it out at the library and recheck it out as needed.

 I'm not really good at this so DH got a vasectomy.  I would have 10 children if I used NFP.

Used NFP..calendar method.

1-8th day SAFE

9-12th This is safe but base on percentile some gets through so use a varrier to be sure.

13-15 UNSAFE

other HALF

16-18 UNSAFE

19-21 This is safe but base on percentile some gets through so use a varrier to be sure.

22-30 or until you get your period SAFE!

This is based on a 30day cycle. 

First day is the first day of meanstruation.

After this baby is born, I'll start charting my temps again as soon as I can stick my thermometer up my vajayjay again! We used that method to conceive and it really worked well. I've never been on birth control and we didn't get pregnant until we wanted to. I just follow my temps and check my cervical fluid and cervix. I'll probably also use ovulation tests until my body gets back on track and I know when I ovulate, period or not.
