two days of Reclipson

Photograph of a half-used blister pack of Levl...Image via WikipediaAlright!! I am on my way. I am on my second day of Reclipson  birth control pill. Has anyone else had headaches right away. I am not sure if I am just super sensitive, but yesterday was my first day on birth  control and I had such a bad headache. It was pretty strong. But once I took Tyelonel, it pretty much went away. So, my mom came over yesterday. She is a such a great supporter to me and my husband. She cried with happiness for us. She is so excited for us.

We did a tarot reading. My mom and Husband are so into it! I was busy reading on my iphone how birth control pills affect the body with estrogen and progesterone, while they had books and three different books analyzing every card. I started paying attention when they asked me to throw the cards. I always  have found it somehwhat enlightening and sometimes very true to my personality and sometimes it answers my questions...but only when they do my may be a little bit that they know me..probably..but I will take it anyways.

So of course I will this next month go. Well..let's just future card was the Star. The Star means: Optimism, renewed hope, promise, healing an old wound, pleasure, balance, protection,balance. And my outcome card was Peace. Peace is the 2 of swords. It means resolution of conflict, selflessness, bravery, alliance, balance, veracity. Overall, it was a great reading. My husband read it and my mom read it. When my husband read it..he read one card that just made me kind of breakdown and cry. He just basically said my unconscious is just all jumbled up. Kind of feelings of confusion and feeling overwhelmed. That is an understatement. I really do not think Tarot is always a way to read the future..but it really brings my mom, my husband and myself closer and we can express our emotions. They understand me a little more now after the reading. It helped them understand that I am kind of freaking out about this whole IVf process. But also, that I am a very strong person and that I can get through it.  Anyways, I hope you are all doing okay:)

  1. Yay for starting Reclipsen! To answer your question about headaches, I don't remember getting any in the beginning. Hope yours are short-lived! Good luck this month! I'm just a couple of weeks ahead of you. This is my first IVF/ICSI cycle.

  2. About headaches, I get all sorts of symptoms while on the pill that range from headaches to an uncontrollable urge to eat McDonalds. So anything is possible :-). I have been through 2 IVF's and starting a 3rd FET so feel free to ask if you have any questions and good luck to you!

  3. Yay for getting started!

    I really hate being on bcp. I get different symptoms ranging from headaches to uncontrollable b*tchiness. I hope you don't get that one!
