Midwifery: July 2004 Archives

more politics


Mark over at Vociferous Yawpings has created a Catholic Political Platform which is well worth reading. I made a long comment on his section on health care. Maybe when I get back from vacation I will expand on this and put it up here. And maybe I won't.
I really wish that we lived in a world where I could just do what God called me to do without there being such a big hassle about it! But that wouldn't be our fallen Earth, then, would it......

All is well
Thank you, Amy.

An interesting twist


on calendar rhythm. CycleBeadsare a method of determining potentially fertile days based on thousands of cycles examined through the Ovulation Method (Billings) and then turning that data into a simple algorithm. This method only works for women with regular cycles that are 26 to 32 days in length (Basically, the same group for whom calendar rhythm is effective). What is interesting is that this method is as effective at pregnancy prevention as most other user-dependant methods.
Rhythm has actually gotten an undeserved bad name. Calendar rhythm is 80% plus effective at pregnancy prevention when properly understood and utilized. The real problem with calendar methods is that they are not effective for pregnancy prevention immediately post-partum (although breastfeeding can be) or during menarche and menopause related cycle irregularities.
Addendum: Amy Welborn has a couple of related posts on the topic.

So does Charles De Nunzio
And an article about the moral dangers of some attitudes here



I will be in Omaha NE from 7/21 to 7/26 for the annual meeting of the American Academy of Fertility Care Practitioners. If anyone lives in that area and would like to try to get together, please contact me via email.

safer than most think!
