Ooooh, a chance to agree with Debora, even partially! Can't pass this up.
I think Debora is correct to the extent it is a majority opinion that abstinence is not required when using medication that can result in temporary sterility, but could also be abortifacient if ovulation is not suppressed. I think that opinion is generally accepted under the principle of double effect.
That being said, I agree with Cathsmom and SummerSmiles who note that meds may treat the symptom and not the cause. Further, a couple could certainly abstain if that is what they discerned was appropriate, but I do not think that position is the generally held one.
The important part is that they are not required to abstain by Church law... though they certainly can if they would like, as long as it is a mutual decision and hopefully for a relatively short period of time.
Of course, the woman can (and probably should) look for alternative medication that don't result in sterility, but she is not required to do that either.
...This is all according to what I've learned about the subject here on CAF, and what multiple CAF apologists have said.
