I did use birth control until my Darling Husband and I decided we wanted to start TTC, but just wanted to say that my oldest brother and his wife live by this. They didn’t think they could have kids (my SIL was…unprotected and promiscuous…as a teenager and didn’t get pregnant, so she believed she was infertile). After they got pregnant with their first all of like a month after their wedding, they decided that if God was going to bless them with a child, then he was also provide the means for them to care for the child. They now have 4 kids. SIL charts to avoid pregnancy now, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they stopped doing that in hopes of having #5. 

On a side note, I chart now to TTC, but I really enjoy being able to see and chart the changes in my cycle, and as of now I think after we have our first I’d like to chart in lieu of birth control until we’re ready for our second. I know it’s not exactly the same as what you’re asking, but birth control always treated me badly, and neither my husband nor I like condoms, so I’d prefer to use natural methods.

No. Me with 20 kids would NOT be a pretty sight.

I forget to add: I don’t use any birth control, I use a chart. This is for medical, not religious reasons.

@MuchGreater: I believe the same and have a suggestion.  Read the book ‘Taking Controll of Your Fertility’  Seriously, you can be completely natural and not have to worry about contraceptives.  That way you’re not breaking God’s law, but you are able to have an idea about when you are ‘ready’ to have a baby. 🙂

@MuchGreater: I know that isn’t what you are asking exactly, but I take BC because I believe that one of God’s gifts is discernment of His will. I will know when and if He has called me to have children, and can respond accordingly.

@MuchGreater: I am getting the book this weekend, but it is the book that is always referenced to, and gives you all the info about both trying to not have children and TTC.  Also, it does not just base your ability to have children on just one thing, it actually teaches you to watch for 3 signs from your body that clearly tells you what it is doing.  Seriously, it’s really easy.

http://www.fwhc.org/birth-control/fam.htm#calendar-charting

that website tells you some basic info, but I recommend getting the book for a full idea of it.

That book should give you a lot of info as to your personal fertility and different days in your cycle. There are different measures to use, such as your temperature, consistency of cervical mucus, the days you menstrate, etc. It’s very, very natural at times, lol, but it’s really informative and it’s just your body. I was uncomfortable with the idea at first, but I’m coming around.

We currently use BC, but once we’re married and have decided that we’re able to support children, we’ll be using NFP methods and charting as well. However, that is a personal decision and not a religious one, but I respect your beliefs and admire your commitment to the Lord.

@helenberrycrunch: I really like how you phrased that. It’s a lot sweeter than something I’d come up with.

@MuchGreater: It’s a method of tracking your ovulation so that you know your peak times for getting pregnant (specific days you are ovulating) and the times it is least likely.

Here is a basic explaination

I don’t want to take a pill that will mess up my natural cycle (makes me nervous). It was my choice to do this method. Sometimes we use condoms if need be, but he hates them.
