I have been practicing FA for sometime and really appreciate knowing where I am at in my cycle. I do get frustrated that the times I want sex the most are the times I am fertile and should abstain or use barrier methods. Ive been risky and we have used pull put during these times but I really want to be able to enjoy sex during this time and I can't stand condoms (so anyone with experience with diaphragms &/or cervical caps please chyme in cause I have no experience with these).

 

I am considering a copper IUD, which I have been against for many reasons over the past decade, so if you have had positive experiences with it, please share. 

 

thank you!

I've had mine for a year and a half, got it when my son was a couple months old. Love it! I'm pretty hormone sensitive so it's awesome to have this highly effective nonhormonal method. No cramping. My period finally came back (I'm breastfeeding so it took a while) and it was 100% normal. I can honestly say I have no side effects.
