The Catholic church's views on reproduction and I had a parting of the ways when I was 16. My mother (a loyal Catholic school employee for her entire teaching career) carried the insurance. When I wasn't cycling regularly (if at all), the doctors prescribed birth control to regulate my cycle and prevent future uterine cancer. Insurance denied it - even with medical documentation that it was for purposes other than birth control (I wasn't even sexually active). My parents and I discussed and we decided that, although expensive, it was the best course of treatment.
Later, I was also told that I would probably need medical intervention to have a successful pregnancy. I remembered my 7th grade teacher's lecture on the church's view on IUI/IVF and decided, again, that I need to make my own medical decisions.
We were even discouraged from sharing my potential reproductive struggles during pre-Cana (my husband is still Catholic) by family friends because some priests would consider not marrying us knowing that children may not be an outcome of our marriage (without medical intervention). We ended up not disclosing it.
So, after 13 years of Catholic school, yes, I hate knowing that the Catholic church opposes everything that I am doing to have a family. We by-passed IUI because of MF. We are proceeding on to IVF #2 because it is the best medical decision for my husband and I after 3 years of TTC.
