We’re Catholic and using BC as well. I was on it well before our wedding for medical reasons, and I tried to go off, and it was a disaster, so no NFP for us! I don’t read Catholic blogs a lot, so I don’t know what to recommend to you, but I’m looking forward to seeing others’ comments!

@jedeve:  Birth Control is allowable for health issues:  http://forums.catholic.com/showthread.php?t=15756

Unfortunately, I don’t know of any blogs that would help you. Eventhough it’s allowed, I think bloggers feel as if they lose their bona fides if they’re not on NFP.

@jedeve:  For health reasons, BCPs act as medicine and in that way the side effects are infertility–the primary use is medicinal and not contraceptive.  Just be warned though, that despite BCPs working most of the time, you can still ovulate with low dose.  I was briefly on BCPs for PCOS but I had a really bad reaction and have decided to pursue other methods (I’m not knocking the benefit of BCPs for other people, they just carried very serious risks for my body that couldn’t outweight the benefit for my PCOS and potential endo).

As for blogs, there are a couple I read.  One isn’t updated very much anymore so I kind of get discouraged about reading them anymore (but their old posts are great) and the other is updated regularly by a very active Catholic couple.

I also wanted to let you know that more people use BCPs than the Catholic Church would like (for other reasons).  I don’t like to discuss moral implications of contraceptives b/c I think there’s a slippery slope with regards to NFP and it’s uses.  My place isn’t to judge but an alarmingly high percentage of Catholics use BCPs and barriers for non-medical reasons.

EDIT: The 2nd blog owners use NFP.  I searched in their blog but I hadn’t really noticed until now.

P.S. Then there’s my blog 😉  But I use NFP sort of.

@jedeve:  Lol true that.  I find that sometimes people associate themselves within what they deal with on a daily basis.  The funny thing is NFP and large families have nothing do with being Catholic–just that more Catholics use/do those things.

EDIT: A lot of people who use those things would like to say that’s what a good Catholic would do.  Not necessarily true (that’s what I meant when I said that–just wanted to clarify)!
