Shauna S: Using the Fertility Awareness Method to avoid pregnancy after marriage
This story was submitted to Kindara by Shauna S.
I was introduced to Kindara over a cup of coffee at our favorite coffee shop as I was telling my struggles to a friend who had been using Kindara. I was getting married soon and I was explaining my worries about the pill and all the side effects it had on my other friends and family members, and how I wasn't so sure that getting an IUD was right for me and my soon-to-be hubby either.
We want a family one day, just not right now. So messing with my bodies hormones or getting something surgically inserted that costs a pretty penny just didn't seem to fit with our life style. There had to be another option!
And that is when my friend told me about Kindara, where I could track my body's cycle and find out when I was most likely to get pregnant, and take the proper precautions on those days. Really? was it that simple? I was skeptical at first, but after doing some reading, and tracking for a few months before the wedding, I was confident that this was in fact, an effective form of birth control that fit into our life- without all the side effects of the other methods.
I now feel empowered to be so in tune with my body's natural cycle. I even take out my phone in my doctors appointments to talk with her about what's going on if I ever have any questions.
I am also looking forward to the day when we switch from avoiding pregnancy, and using Kindara to help us "start trying"- and I won't be worried that my body went for too long off its natural rhythm. Thank you Kindara!
