Used this to conceive!

My body and mind have never been in sync, so this book was a real eye-opener for me! Easy to follow and logical. We used this book in conjunction with a series of Clomid and both feel we scored a hit (and a gorgeous baby boy!) almost first try because we used both in conjunction. It also saved my husband's energy!! We shall use it again (in reverse, like another reviewer) when we're ready for our second.

A concise, informative book

My husband and I decided that we no longer wanted to use artificial birth control for health reasons. This book really took us step by step into the Natural Family Planning Method. The book was very easy to understand and extremely informative. I have recommended this book and this method to every married couple that I know. This book should be required reading for every married couple, because Natural Family Planning is a healthy, inexpensive way to delay parenthood, and this book explains the method clearly.

Step-by-step help for using natural family planning

We heard about this method before we got married and relied on the information in this book to avoid pregnancy for the first three years of marriage. Later, when we were ready to have our first baby, we used the method to conceive. We are considering having a third child and if we do, will use the method "in reverse" again. We have never spend any money on birth control -- something that mattered very much when we were both poverty-striken graduate students. We also have no health concerns using a natural method. We both recommend natural family planning -- and this book -- very highly

You'll know when you can get pregnant and when you can't.

I haven't used any contraceptives whatsoever in over 7 years, thanks to what I learned from reading this book. I think that the information here is clearer and easier to follow here than in T. Wechler's Taking Charge of Your Fertility, which is also a good book. Still, this one remains my favorite. Not only do I recommend this book here, but I've put my money where my mouth is: I've given 5 copies to different people in the past several months. I'm pleased to have this opportunity to tell more people about a natural alternative to contraception

Highly readable guide to USING natural birth control

This is the only book I've read that understands that if the subject is pregnancy, a living, breathing MAN might -- just might -- be involved!! In addition, Nona Aguilar offers detailed, step-by-step instruction in using natural family planning guidelines to identify the woman's fertile time. This is crucial information, whether you want to have a baby (then you know exactly when to make love) or must avoid pregnancy (so you need to know when to defer love-making.) Besides this important self-knowledge and information, before reading "The New No-Pill, No-Risk Birth Control," I never once thought about the psychological ramifications that different birth control methods can have on a couple's relationship. The psychology of family planning is rarely, if ever, discussed in anything I read. This book is the screaming exception. If a woman is wholly responsible for a couple's birth control, there is one psychological dynamic that can develop between the husband and wife. If a man assumes all the responsibiliby, there's another. Obviously, if a couple SHARES the responsibility, which is necessary for natural family planning to be effective, quite a different -- and wonderful -- dynamic can develop in a couple's love relationship. "Can develop...." It doesn't necessarily develop. That's the other thing I like about this book: Nona Aguilar shoots straight, sugar-coats nothing -- after all, some people really don't want SHARED birth control -- but withal builds a compelling case for sharing. "The New No-Pill, No-Risk Birth Control" is a first-rate self-instructional guide to the sympto-thermal method of natural family planning. The method is highly reliable; poses no health risk for either the man or the woman; poses no risk to future fertility. Besides the solid instructions, the book is provocative. Its six chapters on the psychological ramifications of using natural methods versus contraception are mind-expanding. I wish I had had the information -- and the insights -- from this book years ago. And everyone who reads "The New No-Pill, No-Risk Birth Control" on my recommendation tells me the same thing. Definitely worth reading, even if you're only WONDERING whether natural family planning might be for you. Knowing how your body works is for every woman
