Generally when you are starting fertility awareness, or any birth control method, you are thinking about how you like it and how your partner will like and accept it, too.
I know it’s a big deal. Not only that but it can prevent you from exploring options you want to. That’s part of the reason I wrote a guide for talking to your partner (and your doctor) when switching to fertility awareness [find that in the free HER fertility mini-school].
But it’s still hard to broach such a sensitive topic when you don’t really know what your partner is going to think. That’s why today’s video is a Q&A with my husband about his thoughts and feeling about fertility awareness. Especially what he thought about it when we first started. Questions courtesy of you.
2 things about this video:
- Obviously, this is relationship specific. And obviously we can also only speak as a cis and hetero couple. It’s just to give you some insight of things we went through or felt.
- I swear, my husband actually speaks more than I do in real life.
(Pssst… This is a great video to watch with your partner and a great way to spark a conversation about birth control and fertility awareness with them)
What was your experience like? Or, if you haven’t started yet, what are your main hang-ups and does your partner have any, too?
