For all who practice NFP, especially the ladies…
My hubby and I are newly married and are practicing the Sympto-Thermal method (I know there are other methods and I have no idea if they are all Sympto-Thermal – we were only taught one way in class). Even in the months I was charting before our wedding, I had trouble observing my mucus. I do see a pattern with it, but I have VERY rarely, if ever, observed the very clear and very stretchy mucus associated with the most fertile days. Mostly I just see a “wetness” or “moisture,” and it’s hard for me to get much of anything on the toilet paper. So, most times it’s hard for me to tell when my first day of fertility begins or get a good grasp on differentiating between phases in my cycle. I’d mentioned this to my NFP teacher a while ago and she talked about giving me a list of foods that are supposed to increase cervical mucus.
Has anyone else experienced this? If so, what did you do about it or how did you handle it?
