I stopped the drugs for my mock cycle a week ago today, and my period arrived on Wednesday. That means I will be starting birth control pills today and remaining on them until my cycle is synched with our donor's cycle.
Does anyone else find it ironic that taking BCPs is standard operating procedure for IVF cycles? I mean, I understand that they are just an efficient way of taking hormones and that they help "suppress" your ovaries to a certain extent. I just think it's funny that I will be taking a pill intended to do the one thing in the world we don't want or need to do: prevent pregnancy.
The things we do to try and get pregnant.
P.S. I must give a "shout out" to my sister V, who turns 38 today. Happy Birthday!
