I am nervous about posting this so please be gentle. I have been on the birth control pill for about 5 years. My mother made me get on it when I turned 20. She raised me Catholic, church every Sunday and religious education. I followed what she told me because she is my mother and I trust her. I know what the views on the pill are and I am still on it. I don't think I am alone in this, I think it happens quite often. However, it is a hush hush subject.
I have been researching the "better" options since February. I miscarried, and I believe it was because I continued to take the pill while I was pregnant and didn't know it. I have mentioned this to my husband and he is very weary when it comes to NFP. I must admit, I am a little weary about it, too. I just cannot let that miscarriage go. It breaks my heart even though I didn't even know about the pregnancy. (I had my suspicions).
Basically, I want everyones thoughts on what the best way to go about this would be. I want to do the right thing. I don't want to feel like a sinner anymore. I am a pro-life activist in my community and sometimes feel like a hypocrite.
