A little background: I am on CD 13 (dx:PCOS)
Well, I just got off the phone with the nurse and was told I am suppose to take a whole pac of birth control pills! She said my lh was high, which I thought was good, but then she said no, I need to take bcp. I had four follies measured today on the u/s that had grown since last time, but weren't at O size yet,...I only heard of someone getting bcp for ttc when they had a cyst, I don't have any cysts. I asked if I could just take Provera again like last time and she said if I took that I wouldn't have a period which doesn't make any sense to me because I had a period the last unmedicated cycle I took it. I can't believe I'm taking bcp again! I guess it is only for one cycle but oh man it kills me!
At least she made me feel better saying she knows it sounds crazy to take bcp when trying to get pregnant but to please trust them and to come in on the 3rd day of my next cycle...
So I guess I am on a forced break from the RE for a month or so.
I will be checking back in though, guess this takes the pressure off having to meet dh for timed bd, and he will be home September 12th.
Anyone else have to take bcp for a month-I'd really appreciate it if anyone understands what this does and why it is needed etc. I already to the first one to get it over with, but in the back my mind I am thinking, what if I didn't take them how do they know I wouldn't O on my own and possibly conceive?
Thanks for the support!
