    You should absolutely buy the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Tony Wechsler.  I was amazed to actually learn how everything works!

    NFP will change your life! For the better! It is the one thing throughout the engagement process that has kept me calm. Getting to know and understand your body does a tremendous amount of good for not only your physical health but your emotional health as well. It is like you are on the same page with your body! Plus, the benefits that NFP brings to a relationship are amazing enough for me to use it for that reason alone. The communication skills, the respect, the understanding, the list goes on. Throughout all the chaos of planning a wedding, you shouldn’t have to worry about your body going out of whack as well! I too am using the Sypmto-Thermal Method of NFP, and if I can do it and love it, you can too! One of the things I struggled with was just what you said — trusting myself. It felt like the decision of having or baby or not having a baby relied solely on MY interpretation of my body! It’s not so. It does have to do with your interpretation, but that’s why I love Sympto-Thermal – it combines other factors as well, since as temperature checks, etc. If you’re thinking about NFP, I would consider Sympto-Thermal above the rest, for the mere fact that it cross checks with three symptoms. As a young bride, NFP has brought me exactly what I’ve needed – no stress, no anxiety, and better communication with my future husband!


    All the best!!

    @LacyLust,  I don’t think there is any problem removing an IUD after 1-2 years, except that if you pay out of pocket it might not make sense financially, as the device is about $500 (with doctor services on top of that). 

    @Historienne, great comments/ advice- it is definitely something to be discussed with your doctor, and researched.  Also, the procedue is pretty painful if you haven’t given birth.  Apparently it is much less painful if you wait to use an IUD until after childbirth.

    I too dislike how the pill is making me feel and react, and is it possible to use the NFP method after you have been on the pill?  I was like clockwork before the wedding, so I don’t know how it will work now.  AND, I am getting married in three weeks.
