Birth Control – Only girls

Question:

My wife and I have B’H 4 girls with the oldest being 7 years old. We have no boys yet. Our youngest girl was born afew months ago and my wife feels like she isn’t emotionally ready for another pregnancy yet. We definitely want to have more children but she feels like she needs a break at this point. My question is: is she is allowed to take birth control even though we haven’t done the Mitzva of Pru Irvu yet?

Answer:

Please see the following post regarding birth control   https://dinonline.org/2018/06/15/birth-control-after-having-a-boy-and-a-girl/. Your situation is a more serious issue as you haven’t yet fulfilled the mitzvah of Pru Urvu. This is a question that is very personalized and really depends on your personal situation. I don’t know who you are and you situation, so I can’t answer, but you should speak with a Ro who know you and your situation.
