Thread: Natural Family Planning....

  1. #1

    Default Natural Family Planning....

    Anyone out there!! We don't use any contraception other than withdrawal method and at the moment that is the way it will stay because nothing else suits us right now including vasectomy, condoms, IUDs, the pill, implanon etc!!!



    I use a fertility calendar to track my period and fertile times, but wondering if there is more I should be doing?!

    What is the rhythm and billings method (Clearly I need to google when I have second!)

    Hope there are others out there that can help!

    I think I have an old Billings book too somewhere...
    You have to monitor your CM too as part of your fertility tracking.
    We were going to use Billings but I always wanted to DTD around fertile time

    Billings is really simple once you understand it but as far as I recall it suggests abstinence for the first 2 months until you understand your cycle so it might be a bit hard to do it by the book. 2 months is long time.

    Yesssirreeeee it is Onyx!!! Hooley dooley who would have thought it would be so complicated. Thing is right now even with the fertiility calendar I don't trust it because it says I o'd a few days ago but I am only starting to get EWCM now. Mmmm. Might have to do a bit more reading tonight when kids are in bed.

    Yes me! i just found this thread i have always used withdrawal method around O time i have never had a slip up except when i was 23 and my then husband came home drunk and didnt bother which resulted in me getting pregnant and my now ex husband.

    I dont ever get ewcm so that is no good for the billings method i can always feel when i O and it is always between day 10 and 13 which we are careful around that time.
    I just had a baby so we are waiting to see how my cycles go before we know when to be careful but to be honest i am a little older now and it took ivf to concieve our 2nd daughter after losing our naturally concieved in 5 cycles 1st daughter i was always a rabbit and fell easy but now i am not so sure but dont want anymore bubs just yet if at all.

    I've just had my implanon removed after over 3 years. We were going to ttc but have decided to wait a bit longer so I've startex charting so we know when to avoid dtd. Worked fine when I did charting to get pregnant so hopefully if we do the opposite we wont get pregnant. Will also be doing withdrawal.
