Folks tend to assume that a miscarriage will be more upsetting to the wman than the man, but some men are truly disturbed by such a loss, and he may have become more aware ( as everyone ought to be ) of sex being not merely about fun, but responsibility and the possibility of bringing a life into the world. Life is and has to be, about more than sex, and you ar elucky if he is now realizing this. DO you plan to now have children you can't afford, or a series of abortions, because you assume ( wrongly ) that you would have severe side-effects from the pill ? Maybe you both need to work with a counsellor for a few sessions, and brush up on birth control information
