Birth control pills, condoms, female contraceptives… All were your friends long ago and now are your arch enemies. You want to stay clear of any form of contraceptives.
So when you’re told that an IVF cycle begins with birth control pills, you almost fall over. You are taking birth control pills in order to get pregnant? That’s pretty ironic. Why not eat an entire chocolate cake and try to lose weight? Why not go to a job interview and leave your resume at home? Why not invite people over for a dinner party and forget to buy the food? Why take prenatal vitamins and birth control pills in order to get pregnant?
Nosy relative: Are you trying to get pregnant?
You: Absolutely. I’m on prenatal vitamins and the birth control pill (pop in a pill and wait for reaction).
Birth control pill: $40.00
Other IVF drugs: $4,000
Telling nosy relatives you’re trying to get pregnant and pulling out your birth control pills: Priceless
Infertile gals are awesome!
