When Your Fertility is in Question: My Infertility Diagnosis
The time had come for my husband and I to discuss the next steps in our marriage. Naturally, that conversation included if we were ready to have children. We had been married for three years at this point. Therefore, we explored the options of expanding our family.
My first step was to obviously get off birth control. I had been on birth control for nearly a decade at this time. I never thought anything of what the effects might be to come off of it.
First, I spoke with my doctor and was informed to stop the birth control whenever we were ready. My doctor also informed that it could take three to six months for the medication and hormones to be gone from my body.
It was an exciting time for us! This time next year, we would potentially have a baby! However, what came next was unanticipated.
