My first year of marriage, I used the birth control pill. I was ignorant to what the pill actually does. Once I found out that it could possible abort, I refused to use that method again. After a year of marriage, we tried to have a baby. It took me 9 months of trying and 2 miscarriages before I had my son. My doctor had found out that I have luteal phase defect which means that I cannot hold my child through the first trimester of pregnancy without a hormone supplement (progesterene). Now whenever I try to have a child, I must use the hormone supplement 3 days after I ovulate as I did for my first child through my first trimester. When I was trying, I used a ovulation predictor kit to help figure out when I ovulate, so I know when to take the hormone supplement. I do not ovulate regularly.
I’ve now had 3 early miscarriages and I do not want to loose another soul. In my situation, I need to know when I’m trying so I can take the supplement to hold my child in my uterus for the first trimester. I wanted to do the Natural Family Planning. I know some couples may get pregnant even while doing the NFP method. I would normally love and accept if I conceived even while doing the NFP, but in my situation that would mean I would miscarry if I didn’t know until my 4th or 5th week. I am so scared to take the chance of loosing another baby. My 3rd miscarriage was extremely hard on me.
I know condoms and the rythm method are not accepted either, but I don’t know what to do in my situation.
