I've noticed on JM (and I assume the world as a whole), a lot of women use some sort of charting when TTC, but only a small minority use it for preventing.

So many ladies chart, get pregnant and then get on some sort of hormonal BC as soon as they have their baby. I just think it's kind of ironic that most women don't trust that the same science that can help them GET pregnant can help them avoid.

I've noticed that too.

I didn't really know much about charting before I started using it to TTC... but I got REALLY into it and am really excited to start using it for TTA after the baby's born.

I don't have any moral issues or anything like that with hormonal birth control, and I never had any really "bad" reactions to it either... but I just LOVE charting, lol. Plus, I like that my body's doing what it normally SHOULD be doing and I'm not having artificial hormones constantly going through my body, ya know?

That being said... 15+ years from now (at least... hopefully, haha) if my daughter asked me if she could go on HBC, I'd probably agree to it. I do plan to teach her how to chart (I'm totally disappointed that we weren't taught this in school! I learned SO much about my body!), but if she still wanted to go on a hormonal form, I would not be opposed.

That's what's going on in my PR room right now. I've told them about FAM/NFP, but for some reason they feel more comfortable with hormonal BC. Probably because they really don't know what they're doing with their body.

Hi girls! I just found this forum. I've been charting for prevention as well as TTCing. I've never taken birth control pills and when we've been preventing we've only been using condoms on the days I am ovulating.
I like this method cause it's so natural.
