Experience

Coming off hormonal contraception and giving natural cycles a go has been fab. As long as you have a regular sleep cycle (waking up/going to bed within 2 hours every day) and you’re consistent with measuring your temp as soon as you wake up (easy to maintain that habit in my opinion) it’s been a great way to learn about my body and feel myself again after 10+ years of hormonal contraception dampening my personality, sex drive and emotions. You need a supportive partner to be happy using condoms on days you’re fertile but honestly once you’ve got a decent amount of readings, you only really have about 7-10 days of being fertile where you need to be careful with contraception etc. I definitely think it’s worth it to have your sex drive and personality back, rather than being apathetic all the time!!
