Experience

I’ve been successfully using the Fertility Awareness Method of birth control (sympto-thermal) for over a year without any pregnancy scares. It was a learning curve for two cycles, but I have never felt more myself. After being on hormonal birth control for over nine years, I felt out of control and not myself. After getting off of it, my body began to restore itself. I highly recommend FAM/NFP (not the Rhythm Method) for those who are fed up with hormonal birth control side effects.
