How does the Creighton method work? I can't reach my cervix at all, even my midwife had a lot of trouble checking me lol. So internal observations aren't really an option for me.
Creighton Model is based entirely on external mucus observations. That is the only observation needed for the high effectiveness mentioned before. I'm actually a teacher of the method, so I have more info on my website:

Let me know if I can answer any more questions

I wouldn't worry about not having 28 day cycles. Most women don't, and the first cycles postpartum are usually especially odd.

By definition, sympto-thermal combines temperatures with other symptoms (like mucus and cervical checks).
