Can I take the pill to regulate my cycle?

Can I take the pill to regulate my cycle? We did this to conceive our last child and we would love to have another. I am confused as to whether this is a physical condition that God would want me to fix or if it is his plan for us not to have anymore.

Yes, you can take the pill to regulate your cycle. However, since your intention is to regulate your cycle in order to increase your odds of pregnancy, you might want to be aware that there are other, safer therapies available that do not have the side effects commonly attributed to the pill. I recommend contacting the Pope Paul VI Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction for more information.
