Just came back from my new doctor. Family Practitioner. Was going over some issues with her. Thinks I may have Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome. Hasn’t yet tested it, I should go to the clinic and get it checked out.
Anyway, she said that should they find anything, they could probably put me on the pill. I cringed. We got to talking and she explained to me that it would not be preventative of a pregnancy but, to treat this issue. …And, if I were ever to get married and pregnant, it would be good to get on the pill to regulate my periods. Basically, getting on birth control would help me get pregnant when I get off it.
I can tell that me not wanting to be on the pill greatly upset her or at least threw a wrench in her thinking because she said, “Why would God allow it to be invented if it wasn’t to help people?” I asked her the same of 8-balls (cocaine).
Anyway, that is right, right? Even if we’re not using it to prevent pregnancy, it’s still a sin, right? Because we’re giving money to those companies and because it’s a treatment but not a diagnosis? A friend of mine’s mother is a nurse and I don’t know if it’s for that reason or because of this woman’s own research but she knows the pill can mess up a body.
What’s the official teaching? …Should I just read On The Theology of the Body again as a refresher?
Thank you muchly.
