No idea where else to post this.
I have a question. Currently still going through RCIA, and the last few weeks I have begun to feel extremely disturbed by the fact that I have an IUD in (have had it the last 3 or so years) and wondering how many babies I have inadvertantly aborted. I don’t want to think too hard about it. Today I scheduled an appointment with my doctor to have it removed.
Here is my question: I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis just over a year ago, and take a weekly injection. Women are instructed to NOT become pregnant, as there can be serious health risks to the baby. I guess I am just suddenly terrified of getting pregnant while on this medication (if I want to get pregnant I am supposed to go off the medication during that time). I don’t know a lot about NFP, and the accuracy. I know I suppose if I have a big fear of it, than I shouldn’t have relations with my husband. Except that will not cut it for him…he is not a member, and as it is our marriage runs the risk of falling apart because of me becoming Catholic.
I don’t know, I wonder if there is anybody else out there (on this forum) that has MS and may struggle with this issue, or know anybody that does? I’m not saying I want BC…I just need a little more information I guess.
I hope my question was clear…answers will be very helpful!
