Why NFP or FAM? Every type of hormonal BC had major side effects with me. FAM works because I have no problems with barriers during my fertile times. I will NEVER go back to mainstream BC ever again!
TTC or TTA? TTA for a while longer.

Why NFP or FAM? I'm sick of hormonal birth control. While I never had any major side effects, I just don't like the idea of artificial hormones constantly being pumped through my body. I also have zero moral issues with having sex during the fertile time, so I'm choosing a diaphragm and spermicide during my fertile stage. I also LOVED charting when I was TTC and learned so much about my body. The only downside of getting my BFP was I wouldn't be charting anymore, lol.
I am also a bit of an environmentalist, and while we do use spermicides, I am uncomfortable using hormonal birth control because of the risk of these hormones ending up in our environment/water supplies (which it does). I also do not like the waste that is produced from condoms.
TTC or TTA? TTA

Why NFP or FAM? We use NFP for moral reasons but also because of the health benefits. A doctor put me on Depo when I was 17 because he thought I had endo... when getting a second opinion, it turned out I didn't have endo and I learned all the side effects of Depo Provera. I know it's more extreme than BCP, but I'm still very happy to be artificial-hormone-free.
TTC or TTA? TTA until possibly fall of next year
Care to share your chart? I don't have one online right now but I'll update if I get one

Why NFP or FAM? Anything hormonal kills my sex drive, and the low-dose hormonals make me crazy on top of it! I'm scare of IUDs (too many horror stories) and don't trust methods like diaphrams or sponges. We hate condoms. So here we are, with FAM and withdrawl.
TTC or TTA? TTA
Care to share your chart? TCOYF Not much in it yet! I can't seem to remember to temp!
