I would want them to USE THEIR BRAINS. Stop letting pharmaceutical companies dictate what they learn about female fertility. Suggest they check out www.popepaulvi.com and www.omsoul.com for REAL info on women’s health.
I would want them to know what NFP is: a medical model of observing fertility signs.
I would want them to know the models of NFP and ability to talk intelligently about them: Billings, Creighton, and Sympto-Thermal and their websites
I would want them to know that NPF is not the rhythm method, withdrawing, or a calendar method
Just last week I had to go to the urgent care clinic for a bad cold. The doctor on duty asked me what I was using for “birth control.” Being completely sick and not having my wits about me to be prepared for such a quesiton, I just said “natural family planning” to which she responded with a BLANK STARE.
“Do you mean withdrawing?” No, I mean NFP
"Do you mean doing nothing?" No, I mean NFP
"So, you mean using a calendar?" No, I mean NFP
I then told her about the medical models and the observation of signs of fertility to which I received a BLANK STARE.
Good Grief, doctors are IGNORANT.
