You mean cervical mucus as in DISCHARGE, right?

Yeah, seems strange at first.  But really your Fi doesn’t have to do any of the checking.  (My husband relly doesn’t do anything.)  But I think they recommend things like your Fi writing stuff on your chart.  Or talking about it etc.  Like I said my husband doesn’t do anything.  I just let him know when it’s a green light ๐Ÿ˜‰

So.. aren’t you going to give us the details?!

 Is it a color/odor type thing? Consistancy?

This is so gross.

Eww, odor.  Haha!  No.  It does involve consistency and color.  It generally starts off white.  As it moves to clear you become more fertile.  The consistency goes from thick/gummy to liquidy/strechy/runny.  So when you are the most fertile, your cervical mucus (I honestly prefer saying cervical fluid) will likely resemble the look and feel of raw egg whites.

While I can’t say we’ve tried it, I kind of wonder how much “fun” it could be for a couple.

Haha! Silly counselor. I use FAM and I don’t ever say to my SO “Hey honey! Can you check my cervical mucus? I’m feeling all wet and eggy today. Thanks.”

I’ve explained all the signs and things, and his reaction was “Wow it’s great that you can tell that about your body! Sooooooo…can we have unprotected sex now?” *eyebrow waggle*

Seriously, it must have been a man who came up with the phrase “cervical mucus.” No wonder it sounds gross.

This is the most disgusting thing ever! I mean, I think it’s a pretty solid method, but honestly… odor, consistancy, eggs, sticky/gluey/runny, MUCUS.

Why did they have to call it mucus? It ruins it for me. Haha!

Yeeeah I’m really thankful they didn’t go into the cervical mucous during our pre-cana classes…my non-Catholic fiance probably would have gotten pretty weirded out!

That is weird to discuss in any church related setting, but there is something to it. Be in tune with your body and avoid sex when you are most fertile. Go with the natural birth control but dont expect accuracy…just less risk.

too bad they couldn’t just hand out some pamphlets, direct you to some websites, and call it a day.

Hahaha….we use this method, but definitely don’t check together :-P. I just say “Good news….” or something along those lines ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, and we did our NFP classes with my MOM. For real! We figured it couldn’t be any more awkward that discussing our future sex life with a complete stranger. But it was a bit awkward when we sat down for the first class and she asked us what you need to make a baby….

Nlmiele – No no no…. there is no checking for “odor” or smelling or anything like that!

It sounds really weird to say mucous, I call it Cervical Fluid…. And for the most part, it’s being in tune with the sensations of your body through the day, when you use the rest room, etc… you’re not like… “Hey hunny, go stick your hand down there and let me know if it’s fertile ๐Ÿ™‚ ew

It’s really HONESTLY not disgusting at all. If you can use a tampon you can check your cervical fluid… ๐Ÿ™‚

I agree that the most yucky thing about NFP is the actual word “mucus.” That word sort of gives me the heebie-jeebies! NFP itself though is not gross at all. It sounds like they could have done a better job describing what the actual practice is like. I certainly do not involve my husband in any of the observations. I ditto what KLP said—if you are comfortable with the amount of personal intimacy needed to use a tampon, you will be fine to use NFP.
