    natural family planning
    here's a link if you don't know what it is>

    of course it sounds great in theory, but i can't say that i'm not ignorant to the reality of it. does anyone have educated and experienced views on the subject?

    Sounds like a bunch of kooks and a surefire way to get pregnant.

    Cliff's?

    edit - read the site. Sounds like a bunch of hippies. I probably wouldn't place too much faith in it.

    red flag

    Use a reliable form of birth control (condoms, the pill, depo provera, IUD) or take the risk that odds are very good you will get pregnant. Unless you really know your cycles, and never ever slip up, IMO it's too risky.

    can't say that many women would be commited to using that form of bc
    the more traditional methods are just a lot easier to put up with

    One of my teachers was on it for 2 years. He and his wife seemed confident in its effectiveness. That's all I can say about it. Using a basal thermometer and measuring daily temperature fluctuations inside the uterus to tell when she's ovulating, right? I dunno, sounds plausible.

    Every large Catholic family I know uses this method....notice the part where I said they have large families (like 9 to 10 kids)? That should tell you how well it works.

    thats how i got pregnant with my second child :hsugh:

    my problem was though that i got really sick, so my cycle was all messed up and my ovulation was later than normal. Dont think I would ever do that again though.

    contingent on a lot of 'if's, and it will work.


    most people don't have the patients, however.

    As long as it is done RIGHT, it is very effective.

    I'm actually using fertility charting right now, in order to GET pregnant, rather than avoid, but it works on the same principle.

    The woman must chart her temps, her cervical position, her cervical mucous.. all of these will tell her when she ovulates. After knowing this, you can avoid sex during the fertile period of the cycle. But that is the clincher. NO sex at ALL during then, or you use a condom.

    the catholic church is actually quite progressive relative to most christian denominations. they've changed a lot of their doctrine to adapt to modern society which is a smart move.

    The thing about anything "natural" is that it's ALWAYS a more healthy choice...BUT BUT BUT it takes a person with a certain personality, determination, and drive to do it. Most people are too lazy to really do things "right" when it comes to natural living, and hence they fuck it up.

    :hsugh:

    god's not too direct. people interpret his message, and in time, people have to interpret what those people interpreted.

    big game of telephone, with a bunch of possible technicalities.




    and as for catholic doctrine changing, take a look into the direction the current pope is leading the church. it's definitely not more liberal, although some dioceses are more liberal than others (mine is pretty real world compatible).

    as catholics tend to say, i'm non-practicing. :hsughw:



    the episcopal church was founded on the premise of being a liberal catholic church, so it only follows as such.

    :rofl:

    yeh, after quite a, uh, ordeal. i was kicked out of my confirmation class for asking the hard hitting questions. :mamoru:

    oddly enough, at the same time i was going through confirmation, my bf was converting to judaism (from methodist), so i got a pretty heavy dose of that too.

    jesus :rofl:

    no, he was going through the non-orthodox process. never finished, his father was a minister, and there was some drama associated with it. he's now up at harvard's divinity school, and i'm pretty sure his views have changed, yet again.

    i think he was just doing it as a means of learning more, not any strong conviction.
