Name: Kellie
Method of choice: FAM / Sympto-thermal
Why NFP or FAM? Before I started charting, sometimes I would look up and say, "Gee, I don't even remember when the last time I had a period was. I should go buy a pregnancy test." I'm an info-a-holic and the insight charting gives me into my long and very irregular cycles is awesome. I can't remember to take a pill daily, and the ring made me insane, soooo.....
TTC or TTA? TTA for 7.5 more months

Re: NEW Who We Are Thread
 
Name: Liz
Method of choice: Going to BOM to make it official. Decided to go with TCOYF & FF to monitor temps and CM. I'm finding it hard to find something that works great for me so I'm combining a few things for now.
Why NFP or FAM? I have endo and I'm done with hormonal bc. I would love to be fixed but don't have the time nor money right now for that and my doc refused to give me a hyster cause he thinks I'm too young.
TTC or TTA? TTA
Care to share your chart? Noting official really. I use my monthly cycles to keep track of my cycles and I started with FF again recently to help a friend figure out the charting software, again I only use it to keep track of my cycles.
ETA: Charts
TCOYF
FF

Re: NEW Who We Are Thread
 
Name: Rebecca
Method of choice: I have tried the NFP method from the CCL's book coupled with the ovacue monitor.
Why NFP or FAM? We are catholic and even if we weren't I do not like the idea of ABC.
TTC or TTA? Once baby comes we will be tta until he is around 18 months old.
Care to share your chart: I would if I had one! But once LO is born and AF comes back I will.

Re: NEW Who We Are Thread
 
Name: Rebecca
Method of choice: Not set on that. For now it's extended BFing, and the occasional spermicide.
Why NFP or FAM? We don't like BC pills bc it just seems so unnatural and anyways, I'm bad about missing pills. Don't like the spermicide either but until I get my PPAF I have no idea when I will ovulate and we haven't got around to purchasing a fertility monitor (as suggested by my doc)
TTC or TTA? TTA until Jan 2014
Care to share your chart? Sure, when I get my PPAF I will def be charting again :)

Not sure that I belong here, but I got absolutely no comment on the BC board, so here I go!

Name: Tabitha

Method of choice: FAM, I think? At least, that sounds the closest of the different methods.

Why NFP or FAM? Basically we're WTTC (for financial reasons) and I don't do well on hormonal BC. We've been using withdrawal exclusively for five months and it's been working great so far. I'm pretty aware of my body, but we don't make a distinction over fertile or infertile times, preferring the safer course and just doing withdrawal.

TTC or TTA? WTTC, so I guess TTA?

Care to share your chart? I haven't got a chart. Don't check CM or temps or anything like that. See above.

Re: NEW Who We Are Thread
 
Name: Niamh
Method of choice: FAM
Why NFP or FAM? We used FAM (with a diaphragm during fertile phase) and LAM to TTA for 18 months because, well I prefer to do things naturally if it's just as safe and effective as unnatural and hormonal methods. I'm also a bit of an environmentalist and don't care for the trash that condoms produce, plus the hormones from HBC getting into our water supply. Also, I'm no longer comfortable with artificial hormones being pumped through my body on a continuous basis... nor am I comfortable with anything being "implanted" inside my body.
TTC or TTA? started TTC in Sept/Oct 2011, got my BFP in Nov 2011!

Re: NEW Who We Are Thread
 
Name: Cheyenne
Method of choice: FAM
Why NFP or FAM? What got me into it was actually Niamh! When I was a bit younger, mind you. I still haven't really gotten the hang of it! The reason we decided it was right for us, though, was that a) It seems like the most effective way to figure out when I'm ovulating and b) it helps me to avoid the chemicals in birth control, which, frankly, scare me to death. Most forms of birth control, in fact, really make me uneasy!
TTC or TTA? TTC!
Care to share your chart? I will as soon as I get one up online! I'm still on paper :o

Name: Brianna
Method of choice: FAM
Why NFP or FAM? I bought Taking Charge of Your Fertility, so I am following that method of FAM right now. I was on BCP for 6 years prior and decided to stop because it gave me problems in the bedroom ;) and we are planning to TTC in June 2012, so I need to regulate. I was also paranoid I don't O... ever... thankfully I busted that one for this past cycle! LOL :)
TTC or TTA? TTA now!
Care to share your chart? In my siggy!
