I feel a little like I am jumping in over my head, but I have decided to finally stop taking birth control pills and go hormone free.  I have been on them for quite a number of years now with what I thought were no real ill effects, but after getting some blood work done, have found out they are definitely compromising my gut immune system and all.  And really I have been feeling pretty hypocritical about myself since I have been trying to reduce plastic and hormone ladden meats from my life while still taking them.  Also I don't think a copper IUD would work out for me since I am looking to start having kids next year.  My husband who is a bit more excited to start a family said we should just start trying right away... and yeah I am not so keen on that since I would like to get my gut immune back in order before we start popping out kids (sorry  ;) honey).  I think after some quick forum research NFP or something is the way to go.  Anyways so my question is (after a bit of rambling) does anyone have any books or sites that they found were helpful for learning to start going pill free using NFP?

um... i need to run the kids, but will be back

Hi there!

One that I've found useful is "Taking Charge of your Fertility" by Toni Weschler, and the accompanying website/forums at http://www.tcoyf.com - there are good resources on the website and the women on the forums are very knowledgeable.

If you have a smartphone, there are some wonderful apps out there too to help with tracking - I like Clue  http://www.helloclue.com/  or  iCycleBeads http://www.cyclebeads.com/period-tracker-app  but there are lots of good options available for both iPhone and Android.   I believe there are some good desktop applications to help with charting too, though I haven't explored those as much.

Hope that helps a bit, good luck!   :)
