I’m having lots of trouble with NFP. I mentioned in another thread a while back how I had my period (actual bleeding) for 2 months straight (every day, some days light some days heavy, most days medium) and now I haven’t started yet. I do this all the time and I never have a normal cycle so its extremely difficult to keep track up. There have even been times where I’ve gone 7 months without bleeding at all (I still have cramps and mucus but no blood). Every time I did this the doctor always wanted to put me on birth control (this was before I became Catholic). I did take it one time but it actually made it worse so I stopped. Its like no doctor wants to help me.
We have only one doctor in the area who specializes in NFP (she’s Catholic, too) but its hard to get an appointment with her and the place I work doesn’t like us taking off at all (even if we are sick or need to go to the doctor). Plus I don’t even know if she could help me. No one wants to do any kind of tests or anything to see if there is something major wrong. They just want to give me the pill and that be that.
I’m just so frustrated right now I’ve been sitting here sobbing while I was trying to do my NFP charting. I’m actually so frustrated that I wonder is this even worth being Catholic anymore??? I know that is completely the wrong attitude to have but I can’t help it. To me, I shouldn’t have to have this much trouble with it. I am open to life but should it be this frustrating?!?!?!
I neglect other things (including things like prayer time) because I’m so worried about getting NFP right and my charts right. I mean, would God rather me worry about NFP or worry about whether or not I’m honoring him in every other aspect of my life???
I’m sorry this was so long but I just need some help!!! Has anyone else experienced this much trouble or have this type of irregualrity or frustration? Please help me.
(BTW, don’t know if this even matters but its just me that’s Catholic in the family, DH is Protestant)
