Interesting read. It’s a shame they left out Fertility Awareness Methods. While it may not be for everyone, It’s a very viable and successful way to prevent pregnancy these day’s…

Thanks for sharing.

KLP, what are these methods that you speak of?

Thanks for sharing the article! I am happy that the article presents alternatives to the pill but I am dismayed that the article included emergency contraception as an alternative to the regular birth control pill. Yes emergency contraception is important to know about and to be able to access, but it is not a method of birth control that you should depend on for regular use (which all of the other methods in the article are and what the article is pitched to).

I was also disappointed (but not really surprised) by the exclusion of natural methods of pregnancy prevention. PrncssDva, the fertility awareness methods KLP was referring to are a generic term for natural family planning methods or NFP. Search that on weddingbee and you’ll find lots of posts about it! Basically you monitor your body’s natural signals to determine whether you are fertile or not (you are fertile for only a few days of the cycle) and then act appropriately (but no hormones). Certain types of NFP are safe, effective as the pill, and virtually free.

Very interesting.  All ones I remember hearing about in sex-ed but I guess since doctors don’t talk about them much anymore, it’s good to get them out there.
