A: If the contraceptive measures are not harmful to the health nor does it terminate a foetus that is already in the process of development then it will not be counted as a sin if someone did it for some type of valid reason, like health etc.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

وعن أبي سعيد الخدري قال خرجنا مع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم غزوة بني المصطلق فأصبنا سبيا من سبي العرب فاشتهينا النساء واشتدت علينا العزبة وأحببنا العزل فأردنا أن نعزل وقلنا نعزل ورسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم بين أظهرنا قبل أن نسأله ؟ فسألناه عن ذلك فقال ما عليكم ألا تفعلوا ما من نسمة كائنة إلى يوم القيامة إلا وهي كائنة (مشكاة رقم 3186)

العزل ليس بمكروه برضا امرأته الحرة أو برضا مولى امرأته الأمة وفي الأمة المملوكة بغير رضاها (الفتاوى الهندية 1/335)
