I am a convert that hasn’t used any method of NFP yet. My husband and I are going to use it after our 4th baby in 6 years is born this November.:whacky:
I have no clue what method we should use. I’ve signed up for a CCL course (which i presume to be sympto-thermal?) which starts in September but am also curious about Marquette and Creighton.
Some info…I have had wacky cycles since I was a teenager and most drs have just put me on ABC to regulate them. Honestly…they aren’t even completely regular “on” the pill. I may or may not BF this time around. I’m going to try, but I didn’t nurse my other 3 so I’m not sure how it’s going to work out. I have very erratic sleep habits, as my 2 yo and 10 month old still wake in the night a few times a week.
I am also, admittedly, terrified to use NFP. I dont’ really mind having more children, but our financial situation is precarious at best. We can’t afford a car to accommodate 5 children in car seats right now as we just bought our minivan last year. There are other larger financial problems as well. I guess this is why Marquette seems so appealing, as I’m familiar w using a fertility monitor and I’m comforted by some other tangible sign of my fertility or lack there of at any particular time.
Thanks for reading…I welcome all input and advice!
