Natural Family Planning: The Home Study Course Comments by Couples

I have gained a significant amount of knowledge through taking this course. I am agnostic, so I learned a good amount about Catholicism and the beliefs towards sex and children. Furthermore, I have not learned anything regarding menstruation/cycles since my middle school sexual education days, so this was great. Especially new to me were all of the methods to tell exactly what part of the cycle a woman is in. I think I will be able to help Laura with her fertility and her nursing!

This course was very in depth, informative, and thoroughly explained with great constructive feedback for each section.  We had a basic understanding of how the cycle worked; however, we were not aware that it was this easily quantifiable and predictable.

We benefited from taking this course—both in NFP practices and the different forms of breastfeeding.

I learned a lot and feel more prepared for the future.  We both gained more knowledge and feel more educated on Natural Family Planning. We will continue to chart and plan for our children while praying for guidance.

There is a large amount of information to benefit our relationship with each other centered on God. We look forward to utilizing this course in our marriage.

I will sincerely recommend this course to my friends that are due to wed! I think its helpful information to anyone even if they are not Catholic or if they are male! I think it is important to know the natural signs the body gives to indicate periods of fertility and infertility, rather than forcing it to be a certain way via the pill or other unnatural methods. I had no idea there were all of these signs that can be used! I also liked how this book not only talks natural ways of avoiding pregnancy, but also how to naturally increase chances of a successful pregnancy. These will probably come in handy down the road 🙂 Also I do like how this book gives a background into the Catholic teachings and morality regarding different aspects of sex and having children. I think the belief system aligns with what I feel internally is virtuous and brings positive energy into the world.
