    Default Birth control pill for conception

    Just wondering if anyone else has been given the bcp whilst ttc?
    About 2 months ago I had my period and since then it has been MIA
    All my blood test have come back normal except for low iron and I'm not pregnant. I got all the symptoms of getting my period but it just never arrived. My dr has given me a very low dose bcp for 1 month to try regulate me again and of course an iron supplement. Anyone else try this method with success? TIA xx

    Some doctors suggest it for pcos however I don't feel it fixes whatever may be causing the long cycle, just masking it.

    How long have you been ttc and off bc for?

    I was not on birth control before hand, I've had regular unmedicated cycles up until 2 months ago when it just disappeared. I am hoping it is just due to my low iron since that is all that has come back in my blood work. I also had an ultra sound that should a lovely follicle in my left ovary looking like I was about to ovulate but by body just seems to have not gotten there and that was about 3 weeks ago.

    I wouldn't take the birth control then if that's the case.
