can I appeal for advice and support one more time?

I'm sorry I feel like I keep writing here. It's just I don't know who else to ask.

I completely don't know what to do at this point. I am in a time sensitive situation. I just found out that if my cycle doesn't start in the right time frame, I might have to skip a cycle because of a work situation.

If I don't cycle soon, the doctor's won't let me cycle because the eggs are in a time sensitive situation. But if I cycle late, what if I lose my job?

The question is: Should I take birth control pill pack to regulate my cycle and end it a couple days early?

The nurse did not answer my email asking her. It's hard to call because they hate for you to call them. They really dislike it and also they don't call you back. I think they are super busy.

I like the people there so I figure there must be some reason they don't call back or like phone calls. The nurse I work with takes many weeks off so maybe she is taking another week off? But the other nurses do not like to call me back when she is not there.

I have to decide NOW. I am not getting an email in response.

I feel like a terrible person making this decision without consulting the doctor. The nurses really misunderstand me as someone who is acting like 'I have this busy life--can't you schedule around me?' but it isn't quite like that. I have to clear out two whole weeks and I really try to make sure it will be a low stress thing so I don't blame myself. My husband just started a new job, plane tickets vary so much in price--I did have to figure out the timeline. Anyway, I asked them a lot about the time frame parameters so I could understand it, not because I am some kind of jet setter high powered career woman who can't take a moment from my busy schedule.

Will it hurt me to take the birth control pill? Will it hurt my cycle? I am crying as I write this.
I feel stuck between so many rocks and hard places. What do I do? Do I lose my job? Do I go bankrupt? I had to turn down a job that I desperately needed in the month of January JUST IN CASE my cycle starts but I can't do that for the entire Spring. I can barely afford any of this to begin with and now I am losing an entire month of income. But I am afraid to piss off the doctor's office so they won't work with me anymore.

I wish it were just about my body not working right. There's that and everything else on top of it.

Will taking birth control pill pack for 21 days and then stopping damage me and damage my cycle? Will the doctor get pissed off?
