have no idea where to start. I have done research but I get so lost with all the information. Last cycle i started temping and this cycle is our "break cycle" due to a chemical. Can someone please break down in layman's terms how it all works? I am so sorry if the question seems stupid Doctor wants us to do birth control until medical assistance in May but I have never really been a fan...we have decided to NTNP and would love to conceive naturally at all costs.

The least confusing, most effective way to learn is by taking a class and working with a charting instructor. Trying to figure it out alone is SOOO much more confusing!

There are several different kinds of NFP. So the first step is simply to figure out which kind you want to do, then we can help you find a class or instructor near you. Some types of NFP also have online courses.

Have you had a chance to look through the NFP Resources sticky? There's some information in there about the different methods of NFP.

We use (and I teach) the Billings Ovulation Method. But there are ladies here who use some of the other kinds and I am sure they will be willing to answer questions about those!

Depends on which method you want to learn! I know of 2 online courses; one for Billings and one for a form of the Sympto Thermal Method.

I was a self taught learner, and I agree that going through a class is a lot better! I came to this board a LOT for questions. I have been doing FAM/NFP for 5 years now for both TTA and TTC.

I was a self taught learner who had started a class, but things went wrong, and so I self taught, and then I did it with an instructor online and that was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much better, even though my instructor did frustrate me a little, I am so much happier having done that.

we have seen many helped conceive charting mucus and temps; your cycles are estrogen or progesterone periods of time and the estrogen is the fertile hormone and mucus is usually present with a steadying/lowering temp but having relations as the temps rise can also be a time to conceive; keep charting and try to be patient! it takes a couple cycles to learn

I also suggest taking a class - you really learn so much better that way with the help of someone else guiding you. We took the online STM class, loved it, highly recommend it. I personally have found charting easy and simple to do, despite breastfeeding and learning how to chart before my fertility returned.
