Experience

I used natural family planning for 1 year after coming off my implant. As a nurse working night shifts at times i struggled to get accurate recordings of my temperature therefore i believe it became unreliable. I suffered a chemical pregnancy. However my sex drive increased, my skin improved ever so slightly and I was a lot less bloated.
