The other day I went to a new gynecologist (I have a problem keeping doctors---they all stop practicing in IL because malpractice insurance is so expensive here, but anyway). And during our discussion, I said I would not consider birth control pills, which are often prescribed for other purposes as well. The doctor nodded and noted that down. Later he said, "well, you don't have to take pills, you could use the patch". And I said that wasn't an option either, for religious reasons.

I later found out that he sent something for my primary care physician's file, noting the "spiritual" reason. And I felt as if he was saying this is odd, or she's a nut. I'm not pleased.

So, what I'm wondering is: does anyone know of a listing of Catholic ob/gyns who WON'T look at me like I have two heads when I refuse birth control??? I'd appreciate the help.
