I’ve seen it before, but with teenagers NFP would probably be difficult. My guess (and I’m no doctor) is that there’s more fluctuation and variability in cycles.

With birth control though, whatever method, you take a risk with pros and cons. I’ve accepted the fact that there are hormones in my birth control, and for me that’s an acceptable risk. Others choose nonhormonal methods

themidwifeisin could maybe provide some insight.

I plan on teaching my daughters NFP from the time they hit puberty, simply because I believe it’s an understanding every woman deserves to have about her body. However, I think you are right that there tends to be a lot more fluctuation during the teenage years, so it would probably be somewhat more difficult for teenagers to put the method into practice. On the other hand, many women with irregular cycles use NFP and love it, so it’s not impossible by any means.
