The Natural Birth Control subforum was created to meet the growing interest in birth control methods that do not involve any kind of medication or internal device... not even herbs or non-hormonal medications. While there is no official definition, I’d say it could be defined as any method that reads, records, and interprets the signs of fertility that Nature provides without any intervention... and utilizes them for the prevention of pregnancy! These methods might involve nothing more than your own fingers and a pencil and paper... or a fancy computer-integrated thermometer like the LadyComp and others! I see this forum as a place to talk about the Fertility Awareness Method (FAM), charting interpretation and problems, LadyComp questions and concerns, etc. Do keep in mind it is not intended solely for LadyComp users, although that will understandably be a large part of the discussions. You are encouraged to start new threads about specific problems or ideas related to any form of Natural Birth Control! Many women use charting for the purposes of getting pregnant, rather than contraception, and the makers of LadyComp provide the similar BabyComp for the same purpose. So, there will likely be ttc visitors now and then... but those ladies are good at interpreting charts, so their input is welcomed, as long as the focus here remains on contraception! Plus, many of them may be considering putting those skills to use for birth control after or between their children. Most importantly, this will be a subforum where new users might learn something about their bodies, and their contraceptive options. PUMPKIN and D4A have been added as moderators, because of their extensive experience with these methods! Have fun, ladies!
