Charting Natural Family Planning can help women who are having issues with their cycles. The Pill may reduce pain, clear acne and regulate a cycle but there is a reason your cycles are acting that way. The Pill will only give you a false cycle and cover up the issue, but the condition doesn’t go away. Issues such as Endometriosis, painful periods and PCOS can be named and many times treated with the help of an NFP aware physician. There are a few NFP Only Physicians in the Greater Cleveland Area. These doctors do not prescribe any type of Artificial Contraceptives.
