I have conflicts between my religion and what it says about using birth control, other than natural family planning.
I feel that if my doctor (who is very good) were to tell me that I should not have any more children (most likely after a pregnancy or two, down the road) that I would listen to her. I want to maintain my health.
In a case such as this (rare indeed), I think using bc would be okay. My thought is that it wouldn't be about being selfish or non-giving, but rather protecting health while still being able to share the wonderful expression of love between a husband and wife.
Has anyone dealt with this? I need to get my boyfriend (who is very religious and anti-bc) to understand this if our relationship is going to go farther. Has anyone been able to successfully use natural family planning alone to avoid unwanted pregnancies? I question if having diabetes would hinder the effectiveness.
Thanks in advance...I'm trying hard to find greater understanding that I can then communicate.
