Back on Birth Control

So it sounds counterintuitive, but I'm back on Birth Control Pills. I hate it and so does my complexion (holy breakout).

I had done a bunch of reading online about cysts and almost everyone who had dealt with it had gone on birth control to stop the growth and prevent new ones. My doctor didn't bring this up, so I called and asked if it was something I should be doing. His nurse called me back and said that they almost always prescribe them and I should start right away. I really wish they had told me at my appointment and not two weeks after, but I hope that being an advocate for myself pays off.

My next appointment is April 7th, but his nurse mentioned that they might want me to wait until I finish the pack of pills before coming back in to be checked.

So to deal with all of my inner turmoil, I got a new puppy! That's the responsible thing to do, right? It's definitely taking my mind off of trying to conceive. He's a great practice baby. I don't think I've slept in the past week. I must say between the breakouts and lack of sleep I look fantastic!


  1. I really hope it works for you!!

  2. I have heard of lots of people taking birth control for that reason. Hope it helps you!! Good job for doing your research and standing up for yourself!! Fingers crossed that it helps.

    Good luck with the puppy!!! :)

  3. I feel your pain! My doctor put me back on birth control for 2 months before putting me on a fertility regimen. I still have 2 weeks left and I'm super antsy because I just want to get things started! Best of luck on your journey!
