Today I made an appt with my ob/gyn to get on BCP. I have such horrible PMS so I think this will help with that. I'm also taking spironolactone for acne and that can increase the risk for birth defects so that really got me thinking about BCP. We are hoping it will help increase my sex drive since that has dropped drastically since being off the BCP. That's probably the main reason for going back on them. Last year when I was thinking about making the decision to being done with IF treatments I really focused on the positives of not having a child. So now that I've thought about all the positives I really don't want to get pregnant. Actually, the thought of getting pregnant now scares the crap out of me. I know that this is totally the opposite of what I thought a year ago. It makes me sick to think of how much we spent on IF treatments and now I'm wanting to spend money on BCP. I know the chance of us getting pregnant naturally is pretty slim to nothing, but it can happen and really don't want to take that chance.
I'll still post on this board because I don't think I could ever leave it. I hope to be able to share my experiences with others and help them through whatever they are going through. Thank you ladies for all of your support!! You are absolutely amazing!!
