A: Not being familiar with your medical history, it is difficult to give you an exact answer. Generally you need to begin by charting your cycles for at least 3-6 months. Natural Family Planning involves checking calendar days, charting temperature changes, and noting discharges in vaginal discharge. There are many books and websites you can refer to give you more specific information. We’d also advise consulting your physician to make sure this method is appropriate for you.
