Here's how Sandra Fluke can save $1000 a year!

Sandra Fluke famously told Congress that "contraception can cost a woman over $3000 during law school." She said for students "like me", that's "practically an entire summer's salary."

Well here's a way for her to save thousands on her contraception bill! And what's more, this method was found to be more reliable at preventing pregnancy than birth control pills!

The downside? The woman would either have to forgo sexual intercourse during her fertile period (usually about 7-8 days) each month, or use another suitable form of contraception - which will most likely cost something.


ScienceDaily (Feb. 21, 2007) — Researchers have found that a method of natural family planning that uses two indicators to identify the fertile phase in a woman's menstrual cycle is as effective as the contraceptive pill for avoiding unplanned pregnancies if used correctly, according to a report published online in Europe's leading reproductive medicine journal Human Reproduction today (21 February).
The symptothermal method (STM) is a form of natural family planning (NFP) that enables couples to identify accurately the time of the woman's fertile phase by measuring her temperature and observing cervical secretions. In the largest, prospective study of STM, the researchers found that if the couples then either abstained from sex or used a barrier method during the fertile period, the rate of unplanned pregnancies per year was 0.4% and 0.6% respectively. Out of all the 900 women who took part in the study, including those who had unprotected sex during their fertile period, 1.8 per 100 became unintentionally pregnant.
The lead author of the report, Petra Frank-Herrmann, assistant professor and managing director of the natural fertility section in the Department of Gynaecological Endocrinology at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, said: "For a contraceptive method to be rated as highly efficient as the hormonal pill, there should be less than one pregnancy per 100 women per year when the method is used correctly. The pregnancy rate for women who used the STM method correctly in our study was 0.4%, which can be interpreted as one pregnancy occurring per 250 women per year. Therefore, we maintain that the effectiveness of STM is comparable to the effectiveness of modern contraceptive methods such as oral contraceptives, and is an effective and acceptable method of family planning."

    and your welcome.
  • TheTruth1313 2012/03/17 00:11:34
    Still moot. It is NOT the US taxpayers responsibility to facilitate anyone's sex life. If she can't afford the contraception on her own, then she can either keep her legs closed or make her partner(s) use condoms.
  • LindaM TheTrut... 2012/03/17 15:46:02
    You got that right but just tell the men to do their part. They don't. That's why she's doing what she's doing.
  • TheTrut... LindaM 2012/03/17 20:11:13
    You are right, but, the final decision is hers. If he refuses to wear the right "equipment" then she should not let him "play." lol
    Thank you for your reply
  • LindaM 2012/03/16 22:33:22
    Oh, more Rush lovers. lol

    To many of us, it has less to do with Rush and more to do with another government teat sucker wannabe.
  • LindaM Dark Kn... 2012/03/17 14:22:28
    Same ole story Knight, zip it..
  • Dark Kn... LindaM 2012/03/18 18:56:49

    Maybe Sandra should zip her pants once in awhile, and you should STHU about things that you don't understand (things of serious concern) and continue to deal with the frivolities of silly liberal fantasies like global warming and world peace through Muslim hugging.

    Please feel free to donate to the Fluke Fu*t Tube Fund, its tax deductable.
  • LindaM harley ... 2012/03/17 15:46:34
    and you can take care of all the babies out there.
  • harley ... LindaM 2012/03/19 16:47:16

    WTF...does this have to do with the Tube Fund.? If you`re worried about the babies.
  • LindaM harley ... 2012/03/19 17:01:39 (edited)
    Well, Harley, let me put it to you very simply. Without contraception, you produce babies and when we have babies that are unwanted, as tax payers, we will pay for the support through welfare for these babies. Now do you understand? Would you prefer to pay for babies or pills I would rather pay for pills. Now go donate to your tube fund.

  • LindaM Demonic... 2012/03/17 16:50:43 (edited)
    Only in my replies when I've been attacked, dog. All I've read on every post from you repubs is negative comments. Most of the democrats have responded to your attacks. If you call me a pro then you are one sick dog.
  • LindaM Demonic... 2012/03/19 17:06:12
    and look who's getting nasty potty mouth. Your wife must be proud and what a great father figure.

    WOW, you just can't stop yourself can you. People ignore you and you keep taliking crap. Ta-Ta.
  • LindaM LindaM 2012/03/19 17:50:15 (edited)
    Well, Demonic can't stand the heat. He just blocked me. Funny that most people like that can dish it out but can't take it. He did say that people ignore me so then why did he repost. Now is that a joke or what. He posted over and over and over. Isn't he a riot?

    It's Super Contraceptive! Just the thing to stop liberals from breeding! Just apply liberally to both knees and shut your legs. super glue birth control
  • Bella 2012/03/16 21:52:35
    So, taking away choice is the answer
  • RJ~PWCM... Bella 2012/03/17 11:42:20
    Any comment on the actual subject of the post?
  • Bella RJ~PWCM... 2012/03/17 16:52:00
    Making a suggestion that she use symptothermal method instead of birth control pills is taking away choices.
  • RJ~PWCM... Bella 2012/03/18 00:00:00
    Making a "suggestion" is taking away a choice?

    Yeah, right. Only in the bizzare-o world of someone who'd suggest such an irrational concept.
  • Bella RJ~PWCM... 2012/03/18 00:20:45
    Use this instead of that...yep, that's taking away choice
  • Beccy 2012/03/16 21:45:46
    STM is one of the reasons I have so many brothers, sisters and cousins.

    Right, but I doubt that 100% can abstain. The horns run a little wild in the heat of the moment.

    None of us should have to pay for any of it! "Get your Own Box!"
  • LindaM Striker 2012/03/17 14:28:34
    on both sides.
  • LindaM Striker 2012/03/17 15:50:06
    goes both ways.
