I never thought I'd have to take birth control pills (BCP) ever again, given all the infertility we've come to find out about between Hubby and I over the last year. My situation makes it difficult to conceive. His makes it next to impossible. So birth control is the farthest thing from my mind. I had taken BCP in my teens and early 20s to deal with the symptoms of my undiagnosed PCOS, but went off of them more than 4 years ago in the hopes of having a child with Hubby.
However, BCP are part of the IVF regimen. Who knew?! I started taking birth control pills and I had to laugh. During the course of my 3-week stint on BCP, I, surprisingly, didn't become pregnant. Shocking, right? I did, however, receive larger, more tender breasts. My bra even got tight. I don't remember this side-effect from my 20s and it was not a good surprise this time around. I was glad when this subsided after the 3 weeks of BCP.
