What made you decide on the FP that you chose? (Why NFP, or FAM)

No condoms (I am allergic to some plastics and spermicide) and religious reasons.

I have always had a moral issue with bc/condoms anything. It was practically just a feeling, and I could back it up, but it was hard to explain to people. I am Catholic, and was not aware at the time even that my faith agreed with me, when I first started discussing my issues that is, later I learned more and then later than that I learned about NFP and now I practice.

Faith and reason. We opted for NFP because it is compatible with our faith, but also because FAM has a lower effectiveness rate due to barrier failure.

NFP because of religious reasons. Also, like Shawna mentioned, better effectiveness rate.

Yeah, I always like to point out to my friends that the only 100% fool proof way to not get pregnant is to just not have sex at all...only Mary has ever had that one fail...
