Hi. My name is Melba. I have a few mommies in my PR who love NFP, and I have given it some thought myself.

A little background on me.

In May of 2006, I was raped. While I was in the hospital having the drs and nurses collect evidence, they gave me a lot of meds to prevent pregnancy, STDs, HIV, and all. After all this, my body was never the same, period-wise. I didnt have my period for about 3 months or so. And then when I finally got it, it went on for weeks and months. I would bleed so heavily I had to go to the ER one time because I was going through too many pads in one hour. I would pass really big clots and had to keep lots of spare clothes in my car while I was at work. My hormones were out of control. I was always angry, and had horrible mood swings. I tried getting on the pill, per the ER drs advice and it was Yasmin. But at that time, it was so expensive so I had to stop taking it. So more bleeding. I got back on another pill at a county clinic and they could only give me Ortho. Didnt help at all. My hubby and I got pregnant in Oct of 2006 but had a miscarriage at 12 weeks in January, so more bleeding. We finally had had enough for my constant bleeding that we made an appt with an Endocronoligist. But by then, we were pregnant again, with our daughter, so he couldnt do anything. I told my OB my entire history and he said that he was going to put me on Loestrin FE after I was done breastfeeding my daughter. 10 refills later and no medical insurance, I'm out. The Loestrin makes my periods easier. No constant bleedings like usual. I do have some mood swings and we are NOT TTC#2 anytime soon.

Another mommie in my PR and I were on the same BCP and she is now doing NFP and loves it. I am scared to try it because of my wacky periods.

Thoughts?? Suggestions??
