After seeing this post on natural family planning that I did yesterday (well, almost early this morning) my good friend Meredith offered this comment:
Yes I can attest it WORKS! How many years and doctors did I go to Chelsea before opening the Catholic Missourian one day and seeing “Our Lady Queen of Peace Center” article dealing with NFP and how it can be used to treat infertility issues? Too long.
Using the charting they first helped to regulate my cycle and determine I had polycystic ovaries, which they could treat with medicine and diet. Then, my referral to Dr. Gosser, who uses NFP and NaPro Technology (okayed by the church), diagnosed and treated my endometriosis and supplemented my lack of b vitamins and folic acid. A year and two months later we are being blessed by the will of God with our twins.
I was someone the physicians here said wouldn’t get pregnant, or they didn’t know why I wasn’t pregnant, they wanted me to do artificial means to get pregnant, even the possibility of IVF, and I just knew God had a plan for us that didn’t involve the destruction of other lives to get one.
Besides being a morally acceptable way to avoid pregnancy when necessary, NFP is beneficial in achieving and maintaining pregnancy. Where once they were only left with the options of either adoption or artificial reproduction, more and more couples are now finding that they are able, through this new method of NFP, to discover and effectively treat the reasons for a woman’s infertility or frequent miscarriages.
For more information on NFP visit the Couple to Couple League and be sure to listen to Greg and Jennifer Willit’s NFP Podcast.

God bless your experience with NFP. I’ve used it for years. Yes it does work (NaProTechnology more specifically). But the last part of the post confused me. NaProTechnology is not used by the Couple to Couple League. But you link the them. A more appropriate link would be to
http://www.naprotechnology.com/ or to
Thank God for both!
