FERTILITY TREATMENTS AND THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

The Catholic Church, Fertility and Assisted Reproduction

I realize my readers are from different faiths and backgrounds (from all over the world!). I'm posting this article because it gives the catholic church's stance on assisted reproduction for anyone interested. 
 I know many couples who want to be true to their faith struggle with whether or not going through IVF is consistent with their religious beliefs.  I recall when I ran a women's infertility support group, a couple of women mentioned how they had conflicted feelings about this.

Encouraging Information on Getting Pregnant Naturally

But even more than that, the article gives some encouraging information on how many (if not the majority) of couples can conceive with natural methods. Please know I realize some couples must use

assisted reproduction to conceive and I pass no judgment on those that do. Read more:
From the article:

According to the Centers for Disease Control, infertility is a condition that affects 2.1 million married couples (one in eight of childbearing age) and 6.1 million women aged fifteen to forty-four. Male factor infertility accounts for 30–40 percent of all cases. These rates are increasing as more couples delay marriage and childbirth to pursue careers and educational opportunities.

But did you know that according to Harvard researcher Alice Domar, "infertile women report equivalent levels of anxiety and depression as women with cancer, HIV status or heart disease"? She adds, "The majority of infertile women report that infertility is the most upsetting experience of their lives." Such heartbreak might help to explain why hurting couples are tempted to pursue morally questionable remedies for infertility.

Fortunately, though, most couples can conceive using natural techniques that accord with the Church’s wisdom on marital sexuality. Dr. Domar counsels:

Very few people have physical conditions that make it impossible to have a child, and in many cases simple lifestyle changes and low-tech strategies can make a decisive difference. . . . Many couples can be helped by our greater knowledge of how lifestyle factors like stress, exercise, and nutrition affect conception, of better ways to regulate and target ovulation cycles, and of common medicines to avoid that can inhibit sperm and egg production.

Dr. Paul Dmowski, a leading infertility specialist, estimates that "only 8–10 percent of couples in treatment need high-tech . . . procedures" such as in vitro fertilization. Indeed, Domar concludes that "so much attention in the media is focused on the latest high-tech intervention that many people forget to give nature enough of a chance."

These observations allude to a popular prejudice in our culture that nature and science are at odds with one another. Natural alternatives are thought to be inferior to their high-tech counterparts. In reality, scientific technologies that work in accord with nature have proven very effective in treating infertility. The Creighton System’s NaProTechnology program, for instance, boasts an overall pregnancy rate of up to 50 percent for patients of all ages and diagnoses—with rates as high as 80 percent for many couples. These figures are nearly two to three times higher than results from the leading artificial technologies.
