I hope I am posting in the correct area! I’m new here.
I understand the the Catholic position on artificial birth control but I am unclear on using artificial hormones for fertility treatment. Is this permitted and, if yes, why? If no, then I at least see consistency. I do understand that most infertile Catholics try natural methods first but was unable to determine if hormone enhancement is ever used. I also understand the position of rejecting IVF.
Thank you for any answers! I worked with 2 different women that struggled with infertility and it was heartbreaking. One was Catholic, the other Evangelical Protestant and neither would consider IVF but I would never dared to ask what they were trying! Which lead me to wonder what the Catholic position to hormonal therapy was.
