A lot of people say that having to chart and monitor fertility and learn rules is just too much work. It's true, some effort is required for effective NFP or FAM. But tell me ladies, what makes it worth it for you?

What really makes it worth it is that I'm not on the emotional roller coaster that I was when I was on birth control pills. I feel closer to DH because I actually want to have sex with him now.

I totally ditto Danielle! I feel so FREE off the pill.

PM to see if I am available to make a siggy - decisions will be made on a case by case basis.

Simply understanding how our bodies work and working with them is very cool in itself. And not having to put chemicals in my body that may or may not cause damage is big too!

I can't believe people think it's too much work. It kind of sounds like a lot of work at the beginning but once you've done it for awhile, it's a piece of cake. So little effort for such valuable information!

Well, let's see... my marriage, LOL. I seriously think the pill was about to affect it. I'm not a B**** anymore I have a sex drive. And yeah, it does make me feel like I'm in charge of my body!
