Another major Duggar family rule that quite a few of the girls have broken is abstaining from using birth control. It is not at all surprising that Jim Bob and Michelle would decry the use of birth control; after all, they are very religious. Also, just based on the amount of kids they have (19), you probably already guessed that they aren’t big on contraception. However, some of their daughters find the no-birth control rule to be a little antiquated. Jill Duggar, for one, has been open about her decision to use contraception with her husband, Derick Dillard. ″We use birth control, but we prefer to use non-hormonal birth control methods because we don’t want to use anything that could potentially cause an abortion,″ she said in a YouTube video.
″I think there are probably uses for hormonal birth control for, like, regulating things and stuff like that, but for us we just want to be careful about that.″
The other girls haven’t been quite as outspoken about their reproductive health as Jill has, but fans suspect that Jinger may have used birth control too. Jinger didn’t get pregnant for more than a year after she got married. That’s pretty unusual for the Duggars since they usually get pregnant right away, per Cheat Sheet. However, Jinger hasn’t spoken publicly about whether or not she uses any form of birth control, and it’s not really our business anyway, TBH.
