In my Marriage and Family Life class the next chapter is on pregnancy and family planning. I’ve read the book and it’s a bit tough on NFP methods, saying they can be confusing and unless the woman’s been trained then they can be unreliable. Obviously I’ve not had a reason to look into this yet, but I was wondering which sites you would all recommend so that I can get a good handle on NFP and understand exactly what goes on and what happens, as well as maybe some reasons why it’s better than ABC (like I know it doesn’t put hormones into the body which I’d assume is good, but if I could get a bit more reason WHY that’s good and what hormones ABC puts into the body that’d be great).
I’m almost positive we’ll be asked to choose a preferred method of birth control (Part of the class is to prepare us for the future) and discuss the various options, so I’d like to be able to defend my planned use of NFP for reasons other than just “I’m Catholic”. I’m already known as the hardcore religious guy, (prof mentioned that I don’t beleive in pre-marital sex because of my religious beliefs to sort of demonstrate to others that we do exist ((she was trying to make a case for pre-marital abstinance)) ) so now I’d like to sort of make my classmates realize that our arguments can make sense.
