This is a guest post by Kate of be merry, kate in the Women Speak on NFP series. In this series you will hear from women using various methods of NFP, some to avoid pregnancy, some trying to conceive, and their experiences.

I have many glowing things I could say about NFP. I love how informative it is. I love how natural it is. I love that there is this option for families who truly need it. What I hate? Having to use it. I had big dreams of graduating college, getting married, and having children right away. I kind of forgot that children cost money and there is the little fact that I was in mountains of college debt and I was married to a graduate student. We prayed and we tried to figure out a way to make it work, but it just wasn’t in the cards yet. To be frank? It sucked.
