What is the best way to approach dp with natural family planning? I've tried several types of birth control and each of them gave me crazy mood swings and anxiety. Needless to say I no longer take them and I have no desire to either. We've just been using condoms, but I've been reading about NFP. My wonderful doctor uses NFP and has suggested I take a class. I'm very interested and would love to use this form of birth control, but I don't know how to convince dp I have a feeling he is going to be totally against it.
Why don't you suggest he take the class with you and learn about it? Also I might suggest researching it a bit so you were informed about it when you talk to him. And also I notice this is your first post, so welcome to the board and to JM!
I agree with Christen - why not just invite him to attend a class with you? It doesn't have to mean you're absolutely going to do NFP, but it could be part of your research before making a final decision. If he really cares about you, why would he want you to have to put your health at risk with hormones when there is an alternative that is just as effective but without any of the risks?
I think it's awesome your doc uses it!! What a great support you have right there! Ditto to above. Also, just tell him you don't like condoms..honestly, he would probably MUCH prefer to not have to use them as well!!
