This is the one that was recommended to me. So far I like it, although the beeping is kind of annoying. I was told it's the one included in the CCL package, and it came with TCOYF charts.

That's the same one I have. Look up a class for some NFP 411...it requires understanding it and practice interpreting your signs for it to work!

I also use that thermometer. I started with that kind 8 years ago, my kids hid it on me, and I've been through 4 or 5 different brands since then. I finally came back to this because, while it does beep, it is reassuring that it is working. So many of the other brands were silent and seemed to take forever and I couldn't tell, in the darkness and my sleepy state, if it was on or not.

We use the Lady Comp, and LOVE it! It is a bit pricey, but has been such a blessing for my husband and I.

Re: Nfp how to

I just want to encourage you...NFP is such a wonderful way to plan a family. No hormones, no side effects and you depend on your partner for self-control and sacrifice. I can tell you that this has been a blessing to my marriage. I want to encourage you b/c the first few months it can be overwhelming and it is tempting to throw your hands up in the air and say "enough!" I do not use a method that requires a temp. b/c there are so many things that can affect your temp. I use a billings-type method and we have been so happy with it. Send a PM if you ever have any questions!

Re: Nfp how to

I MUCH prefer the Creighton (also called Billings I think?) method to temping. It's sooooo much easier, and it's just as effective.

Basically, you just look at what you see on the toilet paper when you wipe. No temps, no internal checks. You really do want to meet with a teacher if possible, because like all NFP methods, it's something you have to learn (what you're looking at-- what it means).
