I saw posted in another thread but can't find it.
This is in response to a recent study but it is all over the news and internet so I thought I'd post it again."This report may explain why the teen pregnancy rate is no longer dropping."
I think it is just another way to trash Catholics because these teens probably know very little about their fertility but the media is picking this story up big time and wants everyone to believe that NFP doesn't work and the result of this "rhythm method" is an increase in teen pregnancy.:mad:
But the increase is considered worrisome because the rhythm method doesn't work about 25 percent of the time, said Joyce Abma, the report's lead author. She's a social scientist at the CDC's National Center for Health Statistics.
The rhythm method, also called the calendar method or the calendar rhythm method, works by abstaining from sexual intercourse on the days of the woman's menstrual cycle — around ovulation — when she could become pregnant.
Although estimates vary, an estimated 13 to 25 out of 100 women practicing the rhythm method for birth control for one year will get pregnant, according to the Mayo Clinic.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,593887,00.html
