Wow! I can't believe the sponge has a higher rate of pregnancy than withdrawal method!

questionable, IMO.

Speaking of NFP, I question those rates on that chart. Here's the reason:
Quote:
The WHO (World Health Organization) has performed several large-scale trials that have had a "failure rate" of between 0.3 and 3%, which is as good as any artificial form of birth control. One very large trial performed on about 20,000 Indian women showed a failure rate of less than 0.3%
I'd have to say that the only reason the % for "failure" on NFP is so "high" is because it's so easily reversible each month that at any given time, a couple can switch gears and say "yes" to getting pregnant. And docs are SO fast to insinuate that when a woman comes in pregnant and says she uses NFP, they assume it's a "failure", when the vast majority of couples that use NFP don't see it as a failure.

don't know if I explained that very well, but I question the percentage of failure for NFP because it's typically not a pass/fail system for NFP. kwim?

I need sleep... I don't think I'm explaining this very well. Can someone else that also practices NFP chime in and help me out please?

Maybe the withdrawal method is better than we all thought!

I don't know about better... last time I used it (my early 20's), my then boyfriend wasn't too thrilled with it. Kinda follows the "interuptus" part of the name seriously and I don't know about anyone else, but barring any emergency, I don't want anything interrupting!

Here's your fellow NFP'er chiming in!

It's important to distinguish NFP from other "methods" such as withdrawal, calendar, rhythm, etc. The key to the effectiveness of NFP is COMPLIANCE with the method. If your goal is to delay pregnancy, then you must follow the rules for maximized efficacy. The same goes for if you're using NFP to try and achieve pregnancy (yes, this happens...part of the beauty and versatility of NFP!)...gotta follow the rules for it to be most effective.

Many reliable studies have been conducted and show that the rates of effectiveness (if you're talking avoiding pregnancy) are about 99%.

For anyone that is interested, here is a great explanation: http://ccli.org/nfp/basics/effectiveness-p01.php

I was fine 100% using true NFP! When I bent the rules a little and used a condom during ovulation I got pregnant Oops!

Re: interesting BC information.. For everyone..

Numbers are always interesting because there is that 'actual' column and the 'ideal' column. Hard to really find out how good anything works if you have to rely on people using things correctly Condoms work great, if you use them, I think a lot of the failures are people waiting a bit too long to put them on

My guess is most people using natural family planning are at least considering having another baby, so if they wind up pregnant a little sooner than expected, it isn't a big deal. A lot of the other 'methods' if you're using them you're really not wanting to get pregnant. I think this is where a lot of the 'oops I got pregnant sooner than I planned comes from', just not too worried if they aren't super careful and they get pregnant...

Just my thoughts But it is interesting that their are failure rates for all the methods ... just wish it could get through to some younger (or not so young!) people who fool around and figure they are safe because they have used birth control....
