Just don't know why they can't be upfront...

I am having blood work done this Friday and was all excited because I finally, FINALLY made up my mind to go through with IVF. After reading all the scary information about overweight women not having as great a success as "normal" ones. I wrapped my head around going through another SIS (this time with Valium or some pain med) and all the IVF meds. Today a wrench was thrown into all my wonderful positive thinking. I have to start Birth Control before I have the SIS. I was like WHAT!!!! They want to stop my bleeding this month to prevent bleeding for the SIS and if there are polyps they can then keep me on the BC until I have surgery. Then I would have to stop the BC and wait. I panicked, I was not wanting to here the news. Plus, I was taken off BC before (about 7-8 years ago) because my blood pressure was way to high. I told the nurse that I REFUSED to go on BC. That I didn't need to for the first SIS with my GYN and I will not being doing it for this one. They told me when I came in on Friday for the blood work they would discuss it with me. I finally just got comfortable with pumping my body with hormones and meds for IVF and I am not wanting to add another one that might mess up my system let alone my blood pressure. I fear that they are going to try to railroad me into taking them and I am really uncomfortable. I have begun to think that maybe this isn't worth it and if I cannot do it "al natural" that maybe it wasn't meant to be. I want to dig into Edy's Slow Churned but I have none in the house. I'll have to settle for cherries. Has anyone out there been through this? I kinda need some support. Thanks Sparkers for listening.

    I've never been through this personally, but a close friend of mine rode this roller coaster for years. It is emotionally taxing, to put it mildly, not only because it is an emotional decision, but the hormones in your body don't help either. I'm really proud of you for not running to the nearest store to dive headfirst into a carton of ice cream (cherries are really good for you - a great alternative!) Hang in there. Your Spark-Sisters are here to support you.
