I have previously posted about how I think my BC (nuva ring) is honest to God making me crazy about 2 weeks out of my cycle. So the past 2 days I have been easily upset and today I just woke up depressed. About an hour ago it dawned on me to check my calander to see where I am in my cycle and guess what, I am exactly 1 week away from going off my ring. I know what comes next and I am actually dreading it. I’m suppose to be going out of town with my Fiance this weekend because we haven’t seen eachother for 2 weeks and would just like to get away for a bit, but I am reluctant to go because I know I just can’t seem to snap myself out of this crazyness. So I have decided that enough is enough and I am going to try FAM instead. I’ll fnish out the last week of this cycle on nuva ring, but I’m not going to go back on.
That leads me to my FAM questions.
I know there are a few different methods of charting your cycle, is there any one that you all prefer over the others or a combination you reccommend?
How long after going off hormonal BC did it take you to really know your cycle? I would be devestated if I got pregnant before my wedding.
In the meantime, did you use condoms? Have you ever tried a diaphram or cervical cap? If so how did you like it?
Thanks everyone for looking at this. I really have a week to get this sorted and I’m hoping to see my OB either today or early next week to get her take on it as well, but I would love some advice from people who actually practice FAM to prevent pregnancy.
