Natural Family Planning anyone?

Recommended Posts

Wow, have things changed! When I was young(er) this was called the Rhythm method, and if you were OK with unplanned pregnancies, then Rhythm was the way to go. I guess NFP is the scientific version of Rhythm and I'm honestly flabbergasted that it works as well as everyone claims it does. I'm well past the baby stage now, but it's nice to know there is a natural option available for this (and future) generation(s) of women.

I'm glad I found this thread because I have been off the pill for years and I do not want to go back on them and I was wondering if their was something natural I could do. Its not that hard for us now because we are in different countries but in a few months we are getting married so i want to find something now. I am going to get this book and see what all it offers.

This is an interesting thread. Im semi doing this I guess. Im charting and tracking my ovulation etc.. but Im still on the pill.

 

I sort of want to use the "most fertile the month after you go off BC" to my advantage and hope I get pregnant right then! Does that make sense.. so Im afraid to go off now and then not be able to get pregnant later.. is that weird??

I know someone who used to do this method and at first it worked great for her. She had two kids and then after that no more kids. Like someone said above, I don't know if it's cause they weren't as strict in abiding by the rules or what, but after she had their third child, it all went downhill after that. This maybe just be an extreme cause (they now have six kids) but I personally don't know if I have the discipline to abide by the rules ALL the time. I guess it could be done if you were very mindful. Good luck!

the idea of the first month off the pill is the most fertile doesn't work for everyone...some people get pregnant right away and some people go months without any luck. also the pill tricks your body by providing a steady dose of hormones so tracking your ovulation while you're on it, won't help you once you come off. the book mentioned in this thread is AWESOME!!! every woman should read it regardless of TTC or TTA. you should get it so that when you decide to go off the pill, it'll be easier for you to notice your most fertile days and get that baby asap :) :) :)

Thanks for your input! I thought your ovulation/fertile stages were based off of your period, so not matter if I am on the pill or not Im techinically still ovulating for when its tracked. Does that make sense? And I understand that the pill makes you regular etc, but its all the same in the end. period.. luteal stage..ovulation.. cycle.. etc. And what not. I go to the OB on wednesday! Im excited (which is strange!) Lol

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
