For a Catholic couple, or others who prefer not to use artificial contraceptives, the method of natural family planning can bring a new dimension into their relationship. Natural family planning doesn't have to be a hassle, and it doesn't have to be like a cold shower either. Quite on the contrary it gives people the opportunity of thoroughly enjoying their marriage without fear of unwanted pregnancies; or it helps find the best time to conceive if children is what they want.
This book gives the reader an easily understandable method of figuring out which days she is fertile and which days she is not. The diagrams are easy to interpret as well; at least I think so, and I usually don't understand a thing about diagrams !!
The woman reader will also learn about other things that may constitute a larger margin of error when using the natural family planning method, things that she may not be aware of when counting days or measuring body temperature.
All in all, I recommend this book, both to couples who want to learn more about natural family planning, as well as to women who want to know more about how the female body works.

I used birth control for 7 years and was nervous to go off, but was fed up with the side effects. A colleague recommended this book/method (she used it for 10 years with no failure). After a few months, I got the hang of it and feel so much better not putting any drugs/hormones into my body. I've been using this method effectively for one year now.
As a young woman I have many girlfriends who ask me about my method. I tell them anyone can do it but you have to be dedicated, responsible, and it helps if your partner is involved too. Great book to help!

You can use this for family planning...just reverse the instructions. I got pregnant the first month!!! I learned how to take my BBT and track my cycle.Published 24 months ago by Julie I
Too early to tell how well it will work, but I doubt if there is a simpler, easy-read on the subject. Well worth the investment, IMHO.Published on May 10, 2014 by Mr. Sanford
This book is clear and concise for someone just learning how to control their cycles. If you know a good deal of biology you might want to get a more in depth book.Published on February 12, 2014 by Aubrey Reel
