Genesis 1: [28] And God blessed them, saying: Increase and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all living creatures that move upon the earth.

That doesn’t preclude doing it with wisdom.

When it is wise not to have sex it is wise not to multiply.

When it is wise to have sex, it is wise to multiply.

We value monks and nuns, but of married couples we expect fertility.

There’s no place in the Bible that says birth control is wrong or sinful. It’s another thing Catholic Popes and Cardinals use to control the people.

Genesis 1:28?

Genesis 38:9–10?

Did you read that?
