Approved birth control QUESTION from Dustin Dreifuerst M.I. February 3, 2000
Dear Mr. Miskell, I grew up sadly in a catholic birth control environment. It's the nineties, you can't have ten kids anymore. kinda place. I was wondering what are the approved birth control programs that the church allows. And what’s the difference between the rhythm method and NFP? Pax Christi ANSWER by Mr. John Miskell on February 9, 2000
Dear Dustin, The approved method of birth control is abstinence. Outside of this, NFP is recommended for those who would like to reduce the chance of a pregnancy while remaining open to the possibility of a pregnancy. The rhythm method is based upon the calendar cycle of menstruation and fertility. NFP is more refined in that it takes into account other biological data such as temperature and secretions in addition to know cyclic information. In Christ, John Miskell Back to Index Page
