If you have ever experienced your partner hiding your birthcontrol, demanding you no longer take birthcontrol, discuss or attempting to impregnate you against your will or without your knowledge you are not alone.

You can go to planned parenthood for birth control your partner wouldn’t have to know about.
My ex-husband was so strictly Catholic that he forbade any form of birth control and even forbade lube just in case it might “slow down” the sperm. Because foreplay was very limited (almost any non-procreative acts were sinful), I suffered dry, painful intercourse for years, with no clue that I was being subjected to a kind of abuse (intentional or not).
Religion, like anything else, can be used as a weapon to silence your objections. You should always search your heart to be sure you are practicing what YOU believe in your heart to be right for YOU.
