Abstinence within Marriage

My wife and I just had are third child and have been doing NFP for many years now. But now her cycles are unpredictable so we are planning being celibate for the next 6-12 months. It feels like we are the only people in this situation. It’s not fun. Has anybody else been in a similar situation?

No my friend. You are not alone. Similar reasons but what we have found is that it makes sex far more meaningful knowing the reasons for abstaining and proper treatment of each other is far easier. God knows best.

Much love


Are you working with your chosen-method NFP professionals?

NFP is not the “rhythm method” that depends on regular cycles.

You may want to look into other method(s) and the newest tech.
