TTC while in month #1 of EPP (child, loss mentioned in sig)May 5 2012 at 2:15 PM

I have a question about how many of you have done EPP and continued to TTC in that first month (where in month #1 you use a patch / estrogen and/or cetrotide/ganirelix shots). I know we are not supposed to (one nurse didn't mention it but in another meeting another nurse did say we should use barrier contraception).
What do your REs, nurses, etc say about this? I would hate to waste a month but realistically I know the odds are low. I just wonder if by some miracle I did get a BFP, would I go crazy with anxiety because I took those meds? Just wondering whether others have faced this and what they decided.
Thanks in advance!
