What family planning options do I have?


#1

We have three kids and we are in our late thirties. My wife has had three C-sections with our kids and the last time the doctor said there was “a lot of scar tissue.” I do not want to put my wife through another pregnancy due to her age and the risk. What options are open to me in terms of family planning?

Natural Family Planning, which when used carefully and diligently by a couple educated in the method, can be extremely effective. For more information, I recommend contacting the Couple to Couple League. If there can be absolutely no risk of pregnancy, then the only other moral option is celibate chastity until your wife is past menopause.
