Q&A

Can we contracept for medical reasons?

Question:

My husband and I want another baby but were told by my doctor that because of my health problems we should use contraceptives for at least a year. Our priest agreed with the doctor and said the Church allows for the use of contraception when a pregnancy would seriously jeopardize a woman&#039;s health. Somehow this doesn&#039;t sound right. What does the Church teach?<br />
