Experience

I started charting my cycles right before I got engaged to my husband due to irregularities in my cycle and symptoms of hormone imbalance. I have been married for nearly 3 years and we have successfully avoided pregnancy! I also was able to get help from my OB-GYN after discovering I had a progesterone deficiency. I just have to take a supplement ten days out of a cycle. I’m so happy 😁 this method gets a lot of flack for not being effective (in theory) in avoiding pregnancy, but I promise you it works! I would highly recommend seeing an NFP instructor instead of learning yourself; I think that’s where the failures tend to be. And no nasty side effects from synthetic hormones!
