Response to We're back! Thanks for asking, Malory!!! Resting up...see post... xoxo How are you???
OK - had to laugh to myself - who else in the world but me (and all you lovely ladies) take Birth control pills because she wants to be pregnant?
It was actually very emotional. The last time I took BCPs it was b/c I thought I was fertile. Seeing them brought up a different time in my life. The young pharmacist asked if I would like them to be something I could just pick up every 28 days (I'm 44 and uh - no...). It was just so sweet. I left and headed for the gym where I teared up in the locker room. What was I thinking when I was younger? That youth lasted an eternity I suppose...I reminded myself that this was my best chance for pregnancy and went to work out...
The list of bcp side effects (cancer, heart attack, stroke) really worried me, but I reminded my self that hundreds of thousands of women take the pill and I'm on a low dose....
Can't wait for the big guns (like lupron and P4 - ARG!!!)
