    I was gonna say this too. This book goes over NFP. Also another great link would be a another forum hahaha where the majority of them use this method. PM if you would like the link. We were doing this by charting like Kat said. Taking your temperature knowing when you are fertile. Though we were doing it for TTC not TTA. But I recommend the book as your first step.

      If your lucky it will work, but if not...

      I would not trust it, there are too many variables.... Also your most horny when you are ovulating... that would just suck you have to skip that every month hehe

        Also, i wanted to add in that DH and I did NFP for 2 years successfully before our wedding - we were 'natural' and then used condoms the fertile week - it worked great!

          I was going to suggest TCOYF as well. I actually think everyone should read that book!

          You might want to use a back up plan for the first few months, or begin charting now so you can get a really good idea about how your cycles work.
