What do you say to somebody who isn't to keen on NFP/FAM?

Nothing really. I figure if they aren't willing to at least give it a try, it isn't worth my time trying to convince them.

I might just say something like, "You might be thinking of the old Rhythm Method, modern NFP is nothing like that." But that's it. Most people will say, "Oh really? How is it different?" and open the door to a conversation about it. If not, then I don't say anything further about it. If they aren't interested in hearing about it, I'm not interested in telling them.

For women who have PCOS or who are ttc, I generally give them a spiel...or if one of my friends is complaining about the pill. Most people have no idea what it is...most people I know don't 1.know the term "rythmn method" and 2. don't consider doing that really birth control. so they are pretty open to my explaning.

I hasn't really been brought up around me yet except at my OB apptmts when they ask about birth control. My doctors don't really know about it but are GREAT and supportive. My main Obgyn is always asking questions which is kinda nice. I was surprised they aren't educated on it though. I mean, there have got to be enough women who want to go the NFP FAM route.

I normally can't reply when people talk because if I did I would get mad at them for their ignorantly rude comments. Ignorance is one thing, being rude about it is another...

If they aren't rude I normally can get through explaining how it works and is accurate. But most people come in with their own ideas that are hard to knock out.

My old OB was supportive, kinda. He said "if I changed my mind to call and they would put me on the pill," but that was when we were just doing the condoms right after AJ was born. I didn't feel like DTD for 3 months after AJ was born so it was a moot point (poor DH). My new OB doesn't know we do NFP (well neither did my old one I guess - LOL).

When people say something about NFP - I say, "well it works (worked) for me". I am beginning to think we could have DTD any old time in my cycle that year that I did NFP to avoid and still not gotten pregnant.

I had a friend mention to me once how funny it was how much people do to avoid pregnancy only to find out there may have been no reason later. I kinda chuckled cuz she was making the assumption we were using bc and condoms and the like she was...but I agreed with her too...
