Hi, I’m new here, but I had to respond to your post. We’ve been using NFP since our wedding in 2003. We used it both for birth control and to get pregnant…SUCCESSFULLY. As the other poster noted, NFP is too detailed to explain here, but it is so easy. And I just had our first child in July 2005 and have not had any problems going back to NFP. There are a LOT of people who will tell you that “it doesn’t work”, but they usually don’t even know what NFP is or how effective it is. When I quote the stastistics to them, they’re surprised. And another thing, it may sound corny, but you’ll be surprised at how much closer you and your husband will grow because of using NFP. I can’t explain it, but it happens. (it’s like when someone asks you “what’s labor like?” :D you just can’t explain it!)
