It is interesting I have started to build up a library of medications. I have Birth Control Pills, Menopur, Gonal F, Ovidrel, Estrace, and the list goes on. I went through everything yesterday with my wonderful nurse Kathy. I want all of you to know that having a good nurse makes all of the difference. I ask silly questions. I ask the same questions more than once and each time I get sound clear answers. She never seems to get tired of me. The one thing that I did not realize is how important it is to take your birth control pills accurately. This seems like a futile step in the process because of course we are here because we can’t get pregnant but there is more to this than that. The doctor will actually be able to control your menstrual cycle by suppressing the growth of the follicles (eggs) in your ovaries. The little birth control pill does this. When I first did this I took the entire package including the pink placebos and then I called Nurse Kathy and asked her. She explained that I needed to only take the active (white ones in my case) and no placebos. It is good to have little tiny eggs sitting in their sleeping state waiting to be stimulated. I think of my life and how it is good to be a peace with yourself.
It is hard to quiet your mind and spirit so that you can wait to be stimulated. I don’t get to take a little white pill but I can enjoy a nice dose of fresh air and a moment of meditation or a cute cozy picture to help me re-focus and quiet my mind. All of this came out of me thinking about quiet ovaries. Funny how things in life flow together. Even animals know how to take a moment to just chill out.
