Has anyone else had a hard time on birth control? (I’ve never been on birth control in the past.) I’m taking Nortrel before starting injections, and it’s been making me really sick to my stomach. I’ve been taking it in the evening on a full stomach and trying to sleep through the worst of it, but it’s not going great! I’m struggling with diarrhea, severe nausea, and vomiting every night.

I know this is supposed to be the easy part, so I’m getting nervous about everything else ahead. My body also reacted very sensitively to Clomid (ovulated waaaay too early on it), so idk if my body just wigs out on medication in general.

@enjoy:  oh yikes, I’m sorry! I wonder if they could switch you to a low-estrogen type or something.  I haven’t experienced that… my body tends to be fairly oblivious to medications.

@DogsAndWine:  it does contain estrogen, so that’s a good idea! thank you! I’ll see how tonight goes and ask them if I’d be able to switch without further delaying the rest of the cycle.

Jinxed myself by roll calling – looks like I’m ovulating today so IUI won’t happen since the clinic is closed the next three days for the holiday.  Bummer.

ROLL CALL

Your age/partner’s age: 36/40

Baby #: 1

Cycles TTC: Since 2018

Known fertility issues: Extreme male factor so we are using a sperm donor. I also had fibroid surgery in 2016

Previous fertility treatment?: 3 failed IUIs, one round of IVF that resulted in two PGS nromal embryos, first embryo miscarried, and I’m likely miscarrying the second one now

What are you doing this month (transfer, beta, IUI, retrieval)?:  We will do a post-mortem with our RE this month and figure out how to proceed. Between the refund we’ll get for not having a live birth and our HSA’s we’ll have a good chunk of change to spend on treatment this year. First I’ll get all of my labs redone to see where my FSH and AMH are and then we’ll either do some IUI’s to take a break from IVF or we’ll move into embryo adoption or donor eggs if we don’t think I have enough eggs left. 

Key dates (POAS, beta, transfer): None yet

Just for fun: What’s your personality type? INFJ, Ennagram type 9
