I’ve read, what seems to be THOUSANDS of pieces of literature on the topic, but NFP, in practice, doesn’t seem to be that good. No offense, but nearly everyone I’ve ever encountered who uses it has had an unplanned pregnancy! Is there anyone who has used it without an unplanned pregnancy for at least a few years?
The reason I ask, is that my fiancee and I are getting married in just 4 short weeks. I have a medical condition that requires I take birth control, and the issue should kind of “fizzle out” around the time I am 25 and my body is on a level field again (I have hormonal problems that cause…really dibiltating problems and ABC is the only thing we can afford as far as treatment(and it works)) now, when I am 25 (or younger) we want to start having tons of kids, but when we want to stop (given that I won’t need BC anymore) what can we do? Should we start learning and practicing when we are working on those 4-6 kids we want? do we wait until we are ready to stop?
I really don’t want to end up with children we can’t support, or having a kid when I am…well too old to care for that child until it’s old enough to care for his or herself. And NFP scares me because I don’t know a single person who has used it and went any more than a year without a pregnancy.
