My husband wanted to be involved with my birth control method. We learned about natural family planning and started using it. It worked well. . . for a while, until I had unprotected sex on Day 6 of my cycle.

Day 5 was my cut-off day, the last day I could count on sex au naturel; I was supposed to start using birth control on Day 6.

Whoops. We weren’t even living together yet. Not the time for a baby.

We were both relieved the minute the abortion was finished. Today, 33 years later, I am still relieved!!
