and he says "WHY aren't more women using this!?"

He was totally fascinated by my charts (I had to show them to him when I told him I knew I was not ovulating regularly). He even kept them so he could do some research and show some colleagues.

Guess I found someone willing to actually respect it!

I can't believe people are that ignorant about this. I mean it's not that far off from the old school rhythm method. It just takes a bit more.

That is AWESOME!!!!! My OB knows I use it but she doesnt know anything about it. When she was asking me about what I could use being Catholic and all, she said "Well what about pulling out?"

I just had to chuckle...I'm pretty sure this is way more effective!! I cant believe she didnt have at least a little knowledge of it in her back pocket so she could recommend it to people who have the same beliefs as me, but may not KNOW about NFP!

But she was interested when I was telling her about it so who knows, maybe she did a little research

I know what you mean Liz.

he was probably in his late 60's too, so he'd have been having kids during the rhythm method era I think. But he must have asked me a dozen simple questions (which thankfully I knew the answer to lol).

It just made me smile. The last two docotrs I've mentioned it to have looked at me like I had rocks in my five heads.

DH and I had been talking about me going back to school to get either my midwife degree or a doula certification (for use after we have kids), if I do peruse it I think I'd like to get certified to teach FAM too.

thats great! it is so awesome to have a doctor who understands and listens to you, no holier than thou attitude.

my doctor is a loser, when i told him i was going to start using FAM he said that was just the fancy name for charting. he made it sound like it's not really a way of preventing pregnancy. he blew it off and told me i could likely get PG the month i stopped the pill... charting told me i have not O'ed since stopping the pill so BITE ME DR!
