The very first time I heard about it was from my Mom, when she was explaining puberty and how a woman's body works. She didn't go into a lot of detail about how to use it to avoid or achieve pregnancy, just how a woman can observe her signs of fertility and know when ovulation is happening and then she'll also know when her period will come if she's not regular. I mostly thought it was gross. But at the age of 10, anything related to menstration or sex was gross. LOL
I am a convert so I heard about it around the time my husband (back then boyfriend) and I were discussing potentially getting married and when I was studying the Catholic faith, the teachings, etc. Honestly, I don't completely remember, but when we were first dating my husband was not as devout to the faith as he is right now and considered b/c to be o.k. He then had a leap of faith and changed a lot of his previous thinking process which was not in accordance with the teachings, and so I think he was also a factor in introducing me to NFP
on another forum, though I didn't know what it was called. The site is a pregnancy/parenting site & i learnt about it on the TTC boards, so i never actually realised that it had a name until I came here!!!
I got the book "Taking Charge of your Fertility" and went to the Ovusoft website they had. I learned it all through that book and on their support forums. That was 2.5 years ago. I can't imagine not knowing about it all now.
I am Catholic as well and the first time I heard about it was my Unitas class (marriage prep) and then I read TCOYF, but stayed on the pill till a year after we got married cause I was worried of the whole reason I was on the pill to begin with (too frequent periods).
PM to see if I am available to make a siggy - decisions will be made on a case by case basis.
