For several years I suffered horrible side-effects from birth control pills and then finally the NuvaRing, which was my last attempt with this method. Living in a major city that attracts the 'best and brightest' health care professionals, I have seen top-notch Ob/Gyns, yet none of them were ever able to provide information on natural alternatives for family planning. As a married woman over 30 years old, I found this rather odd considering that I was willing to take full responsibility and expedience and efficiency was not my goal. I was desperate for a natural, hormone-free method in fact. Not one physician offered advice on NFP or FAM.
I am curious to know if other women have had this same experience, and if so, how did they handle the situation.
