Going off the pill

Well, after two months of being on the pill and enduring nausea and headaches every single day, I decided go off it. Last Monday, I started having breakthrough bleeding that just won't let up and since we don't know when we will be able to start IVF, it seems silly to keep suppressing and enduring the side effects for no reason. I called my RE's office this morning and they said it was ok (good think cause I took my last one Friday night).

The only problem is, I have no idea which day to call cd1 since I have been bleeding for a week! I guess I will say Saturday since I stopped the pill on Friday.

I can't help but allow a little hope to creep in that maybe being on the pill for a little while will jump start my body. Logically I know that if the eggs couldn't pass through my scar tissue on medicated cycles, one isn't going to on a natural cycle but, I would rather have a tiny bit of hope each month than just be on BCPs!


  1. Keeping my FX for your miracle bfp!

  2. Glad that you were able to stop BCP since you have the side effects you have, and that your clinic was supportive.
