My wife and I have been married for 13 years and have 4 children. We have practiced NFP throughout our marriage.
My wife has had increased mood swings during her cycle that have led to tension/difficulties in our family. She consulted her doctor who suggested medication that would hopefully stabilize the swings, however, this same medication will also make her infertile. We plan to continue to abstain during the 7 days around her fertile time (as we are not looking to grow our family) so as not to upset our practice of NFP.
Is this against Church teaching? What are some concerns I should have in trying to lead my family?
My wife has said she will try for 3 months and if the mood swings are not significantly better she will stop due to other potential side affects.
Thanks for the replies
