Off I go...

Off the pill that is...

Turns out the hormones in the pill are making my blood pressure a bit too high for my DR's comfort, and also there were some concerns about blood clots etc...Coupled with the fact that it has also failed me in the past even with proper usage, they said it was not worth the added risk, so I will just go off it and just use barrier methods for now....

No more hormonal contraceptives for me! I was really hoping to have a few good cycles of NO charting/tracking...But alas, my BBT and I meet again, after only a couple short weeks of a break....(Though, I did sneak a few temps in there this cycle, just out of habit...lol)...

We are going to take the time (while using condoms until AF comes- yea I know, like you really care about our protection methods) to also treat for any Ureaplasma that may be in there in either of us. The treatment for that is 2 weeks of doxycyclene, taken twice a day, by both partners, and barrier method used for any sex, as to not transmit any bacteria until it clears. It is kind of a preventative thing to just make sure there is nothing lurking in there that could cause issues for us in the future if we decide to and have the money to try again...If you have it and it is not treated it can cause some nasty issues, and so many DR's never test or treat for it. That boggles my mind, since it is so easily treated and can really help many women get and stay pregnant and reduce risks for PPROM and PTL. Anyway, off my soap box...LOL...

I am getting more and more anxious to get this next week over with...So much going on...So much anticipation...So much stress...I think I may pick up a couple bottles of wine for the end of next week celebration ..LOL It will be a miracle I made it through still sane! ;)

  1. I've read so many books that talk about the bacterial infection you may not even know about and how easily that can be treated. I guess that is the ureaplasma that you are talking about. So great you are being proactive....I mean why not just make sure? Enjoy your wine, but don't forget the condoms after you drink it! hehe
