sunbeam-spirit said: Hey! Sorry for bothering you like two days in a row??? loll but I saw your birth control post and I was wondering if you ever looked at natural family planning and your thoughts on that! Personally, i think putting the birth control hormones in my body is a little scary, you don't have to answer this publicly, I was just wondering your thoughts!! ty have a nice day xo

I’ve seen it before, but with teenagers NFP would probably be difficult. My guess (and I’m no doctor) is that there’s more fluctuation and variability in cycles.

With birth control though, whatever method, you take a risk with pros and cons. I’ve accepted the fact that there are hormones in my birth control, and for me that’s an acceptable risk. Others choose nonhormonal methods

themidwifeisin could maybe provide some insight.

I plan on teaching my daughters NFP from the time they hit puberty, simply because I believe it’s an understanding every woman deserves to have about her body. However, I think you are right that there tends to be a lot more fluctuation during the teenage years, so it would probably be somewhat more difficult for teenagers to put the method into practice. On the other hand, many women with irregular cycles use NFP and love it, so it’s not impossible by any means. 

yeah, women with irregular cycles and even conditions such as PCOS use NFP effectively, whether trying to conceive or avoid.  I plan on teaching my daughter NFP as well, but only so she can gain an understanding of her gynecological health, and I won’t teach her how to use it as birth control or pregnancy achievement.

The problem with teenagers using NFP isn’t their fluctuating cycles, but the fact that they are not mature enough to use NFP as bc effectively or to have even sex. 

Sex is an adult activity with adult consequences, a reality that NFP accepts and that artificial bc tries so hard to push aside.  It’s easier for a sexually excited teen to take a pill every morning or put on a condom than it is to go over your chart with your partner and abstain periodically.
