Thought it would be fun to do a poll about NFP perceptions! I seem to have met an increasing number of people who think NFP = withdrawal. Just wondering how common that is!

I guess I thought it was a combination of things. I actually thought it was also called the rhythm method. Basically watching all the signs and learning your body to avoid pregnancy. Is that not right? I might be completely wrong. We do the watching the signs and withdrawal method.

Rhythm/Calender is where you predict when you'll be fertile based on the overall length of your cycle. Like if your cycle is 30 days, you count yourself fertile from days 11-19. There is no tracking signs at all, just counting. It's only reliable for women who are very regular and even then, it doesn't account for ovulation that happens earlier or later than usual. Can't be used while breastfeeding or if you're irregular or during peri-menopause either.

Watching fertile signs is part of NFP or Fertility Awareness Methods - so you tell you're fertile based on hard evidence rather than predictions or guesses. With all the NFP methods, couples abstain on fertile days to avoid pregnancy. With FAM, contraception is used on fertile days - a barrier, withdrawal, spermicide etc.

Does that clarify the difference?

I clicked two of them, the rythum method one and the no clue...cuz I had no clue about it, then I learned about the rythum method, then I learned about modern NFP, it was an evolution, lol

So P&P didn't come out as high as I thought it would. Very interesting anyway!

I've never understood why anyone thinks p&p works...this one mistifies me...it is like they think since they know people who it worked for that means it works...I know people who didn't have morning sickness and had a boy, does that mean that all people who don't have morning sickness will have boys? That baffles me...somebody someday will have to explain it to me.

Hahaha, I've always heard of it as pull and pray, but thought it was in the rythm method sort of way, lol.
