Reasons To Choose Natural Family PlanningPosted 02/22/11 • Last updated 10/12/11 • 588 views • 1 comment
There are as many reasons to choose natural family planning as there are women in the world, but here are a few of the most compelling:
- You are opposed to artificial birth control for religious reasons
- You are opposed to hormonal birth control for personal health reasons
- You are concerned about the environmental impact of waste and hormones from artificial birth control
- You don't want to take hormonal birth control while breastfeeding
- You are concerned about the potential abortifacient effect of some birth control methods
- You don't like the way you feel when on hormonal birth control (i.e. lower sex drive)
- You are concerned about the monetary cost of artificial birth control
