"A Cooperative Method of Natural Birth Control" by Margaret Nofziger is a book that in an easily understandable manner helps women get to know their own body better. Most of us know about counting days and circling in days at the calendar. But there is always insecurity... Why? Because we are not machines, but humans, and humans don't always go by the clock.
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.

Format: Paperback
This book is explains more about HOW the female monthly works than any I've ever seen. Explaining when a pregnancy can and can't occur, as well as the changes occuring during each phase. This would have been great as a 12 year old in the 7th grade "health" class. The book sticks strictly with the different signs and symptoms of the female monthly cycle. Uses plain english, without being offensive or prudish. As a mother of three -- it was worth the time I spent reading it. Any Mom with a daughter, a married couple who wants a natural birth control, or who are trying for a baby. This book removes the guesswork.

Format: Paperback
This book is small and easy to read, but not as comprehensive as "the Art of Natural Family Planning" by Kippley, or even Aguilar's "The New No Pill, No Risk Birth Control". Good to get the basic idea, though.

Format: Paperback
A fantastic introduction to what is now being called the "symptothermic method," a combination of calendar rhythm, basal body temperature, and cervical fluid logging that narrows down your "safe" and "unsafe" days for intercourse. Written by a woman who lives on The Farm (an intentional community in Tennessee), in the same spirit as "Spiritual Midwifery," by Ima May Gaskin. This is a great book if you're tired of regulating your fertility with the help of drugs or potentially dangerous devices and don't mind keeping a chart to keep track of your hormonal changes.

My husband and I borrowed this book from a friend who used it to PREVENT pregancy, but we used it with the intentions of getting pregnant. We tried alot of things, including infertility treatments, but it wasn't until after we read this book and used the information to our advantage that we were able to finally get pregnant. Our son is now 6 months old, and we tell all our friends who are having trouble conceiving to give this book a try! It is an easy read, which is sometimes what you need... just the basics :)

This book gave me all of the information I needed to start tracking my fertility and having safe sex with neither contraception nor conception! It's great to see my partner become so involved/invested in my monthly cycles and we've both begun to realize how deeply our sexual/reproductive health education is guided by the agendas of pharmaceutical companies. I understand that it's hard to talk to people about this kind of thing because no one (ob/gyns, educators, and parents) wants to be liable if/when someone's cycle tracking method of natural birth control fails but what we've been taught about our own fertility leads us to live in a state of distrust and confusion regarding our bodies and blindly consume prescription birth control. It's really incredible how simple and effective fertility tracking can be and how lost this knowledge is in our culture. Thanks Margaret!

Format: Paperback
This book clearly outlines a combination of 3 different natural birth control methods. It takes a little time and dedication to learn, but it is simple and effective if you are responsible.

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!
