I've been doing some reading about NFP, and I love the concept of it and that it is inline with Catholic teaching, though I'm still a bit sketchy on the practice (cervical mucous measuring just sounds gross). I know that's probably very juvenile of me, but I've never been a big anatomy fan.
In any case, I was diagnosed with pcos about 7 years ago. I've always hated being on birth control and I get worried about the possible side-effects (high blood pressure, cancer risk, etc.), but I worry about the hormonal back-lash if I come off it. I cannot find any research or mention of how NFP helps pcos, though I know the claim has been made on this board. Those things that can control regarding pcos, I do control (weight (am actually under), exercise, diet). But I can't figure out the hormone thing. Can anybody clarify it for me?
