Biitchiness on BCP

Uggghhhh! I am on BCPs right now for IVF next month and I am a super biatch! I just can't help myself and have been in the worst mood since I've been taking them. And my poor H is getting the brunt of it!

Has anyone else experienced this? I was on BCPs for 10 years before TTC and I don't remember the moodiness being this bad. Is this normal??

Re: Biitchiness on BCP

  • I was downright foul on BCPs. FOUL. I was on them for a super long time too before and never was that mean and nasty. It might be a different brand or your body just isn't used to it yet. I was the most mean the first and last week (the last week I was exstra mean and crying b/c the lupron + BCP combo is like a molotov cocktail). :)

  • You know, when I was on the pill and everytime I've taken provera or prometrium, I am an evil witch.  I had no mood swings on the follistim really but the other stuff-look out. 

    Luckily my husband knew enough to just walk away. :-)

    I'm on the 2nd week of Portia which is the generic Nordette. I was on Yasmin before TTC. Maybe it's the different BCPs that is messing with me. I figured maybe my body just needed to get used to them but so far it's not. Kinda scared when I have to start lupron or whatever the put me on! Do they usually put you on both the lupron+BCP?

    Yeah they have you start the lupron toward the end of the bcps. I think I had a 3-4 day overlap.

    Oh ok, thank you for that info. At least it's only for a few days i guess.

  • Are you Lauren and your birthday is 11/22??  I am Lauren and my birthday is 11/22 :) (thus my screen name!)

    I know a lot of pp who hate being on BC.  For me, I LOVE it.  I know what to expect and when....and my mood is steady.  

    Good luck with IVF!

  • I was the same way too last year. I chalked it up to the type of pill the doctor prescribed. I used to be on ortho tri-cylen, which was the pill that worked the best for me.

     Fortunately, it is only for a short time.
