  • Hi, I do not get my periods regualarily and hence take medicines that stop me from concieving. Does that mean that I am going against God's plan for me?

  • My wife and I used natural methods (Billings) all our married life and it worked for us. Using this method irregular periods are not an issue Pax John

  • Is the only reason you are taking these medications is that you don't get your periods regularly? How long have you been on this medication? How do you know your body would not have evened out eventually off of the medication? I ask because in my experience many teens and young ladies are put on hormonal birth control for no reason other than to regulate their periods, a process that usually occurs naturally as the body continues to mature. More concerning though is that hormonal birth control could mask an underlying condition that would be obvious had your bodies natural functioning not been interfered with. Are you going against God's plan? We really don't have enough information to answer that question completely. Generally if you are married and you are taking birth control that would prevent a pregnancy and you have no dire medical need to take such medication then yes, you are going against the Church's teachings about God's plan for human relationships and sexuality. A great place to learn more about this is by reading "Theology of the Body".

  • I should add my husband and I also used the Billing's method and it worked perfectly for us.

  • Ahhhhh! I dislike charting while exclusively breast feeding. Dear daughter is seven months old I would just like some sort of a cycle to chart! Almost dropped the boob for the bottle just to get me back.... She is our fourth (and for right now nfp will be used to avoid) Any successful bf and avoiding stories?

  • unknown, I have used marquette for our 7th and it worked well. It is pricy but it gave me peace of mind instead of trying to chart and take temps when I was getting up at all hours. There is a website you can look up as well.

  • Reprising a question from a couple of weeks ago. Anyone here have experience charting while on medication for bi-polar disorder? The medication interferes w/ prolactin and makes cycles v. irregular. Am wondering if anyone has experience and which method you find is best?

  • Rebecca, very funny! Thanks for the laugh today!

  • Nadine, thanks! I'll look into it. We are charting with Creighton and it is just crazy (and with little bathroom privacy....ya know!). Ive never charted before cycles returning, so this is uncharted territory! :)

  • For those of you using the Marquette Method, did you find an instructor necessary, or do you think it's reasonable to teach yourself? My husband and I just purchased the fertility monitor, and plan to start using this because I'm breastfeeding. There aren't any Marquette instructors in our city.

  • Miranda-- I mostly learned through the website and online forum, but I had familiarity with other methods and knew the basics of NFP already, so I'm sure that helped. As you start to use the method, I think you'll find that the online instructions are a bit lacking in specificity and unusual situations, so I think the online forum when you can ask the nurse-professors who developed the method specific questions is really important. I also encourage you to chart using their online charting system so they can look at your charts as needed.

  • quietly sublimation mutual assistance.As studies continue to leave and suddenly find that we are older, we have to down to earth to face the future. Our time to shake hands with the campus, with a payment cards, which devoted a blessing to each other and care. We left the school this tree, such as patches of autumn leaves, the separation of Li song, drift in to corner the horizon. Whenever retrospect those years time, there will always be a few drops of tears Yingying, it is bliss, miss, is unable to let go of some Love. Today, the face of complex society, there is always a sigh from the heart, that we can not go back in time. There is always a call from the depths of the soul, the students of those years you been? In those years the teacher, there is no added a few gray hairs? Often written into the mind thoughts, not for lost years, only for those of our youth.Now you and I [wrote]In the current society, we are forced to hold down, often cruel reality exceeded our expectations. With the expansion of materialism, secular thin cold, our hearts have been changed a lot. We have their own small home, have their own children, is no longer a fantasy for us. For a better start, in order to share the responsibility of shoulder, running in their dust. The pressures of life make us less of Xu memories, just occasionally caused inner feelings in a song or scene in one place, then we will remember, remember those years of warm, remember that no disturbance of fame innocence.Years the pace driving dust in their trip, in contact with all kinds of people, but also learned to package themselves, learn the perfunctory, learn the evolution of the various mask. In such performances gradually numb, not so pure of heart, blind running in contaminated covered vanity, fame and fortune that the temptation rebirth ridden confrontation, already see their profile. In fact, carefully think about it, we really happy? You are lost a lot of it? If life is a drama, then who is behind the leader? Vanity, fame and fortune, or excessive doubts? We play outside the movies as a clown plays a variety of roles, while we watch a movie while acting slowly in a sluggish performance, the sink in the fame and fortune. That we are all vulnerable, society was inadvertently changed.Finally one day inadvertently Looking back, found already lost to when the road. Hundred thousand turn back hard self, wandering blindly grasp exactly what? How much have you lost it? Should time be able to stay a while, if you can allow yourself a quiet corner, deep thought, vanity Why? Why joys and sorrows? Valente PASSING, the number of old time, travel rush, mottled how much time, ask the wind, the wind silent, ask clouds, rain fall, only that old song singing in the dust.Time on the walk, there are many stories belong to us? Life kept repeating rub shoulders and leave, and every bloom cycle are validated
