Awww the wonderful world of adult acne due to fertility drugs.

Isn’t it bad enough that you are childless in your twenties or thirties but why oh why do you have to have acne now? Isn’t it embarrassing enough that you spend most of your free time at the fertility clinic but now you have to walk around with a face filled with zits that would scare even a teenager. Sadly, the side effects of a lot of fertility drugs include weight gain (SUPER!) and acne (EVEN BETTER!). You had lunch with a friend last week and you noticed that she kept staring at that large zit planted on your cheek. You ignored her stares and tried to cover up the other zits that were also lingering on your chest. It’s one thing to have adult acne on your face but why do we have to get it on our chest, arms and on our bottoms as well?

When a teenager with braces and head gear starts to laugh and point at you, I will give you permission to cry this time but just a bit.

    I hope I get pregnant before I get to reason #1. But I do still plan to write all the reasons no matter what! I believe having difficulties conceiving makes us all better and more sensitive women.
