Hello everyone! I have been reading these forums for about a year, since we started seeing an REI. Now, after six cycles of clomid with no ovulation, we have decided to try IVF. The whole process is scary to me, especially because I tend to worry about everything. I have tried to not bother anyone with my worries during the last year, but now I am up at night worrying, so I thought I would post.

I was hoping that I could ask you all a question and see if anyone can tell me there experiences or give some words of advice.

My doctor started me on ortho-cept birth control to suppress my ovaries (which I am pretty sure they don't really work on their own anyway ;). He instructed me to take it for three weeks before I start Lupron. I have never taken this birth control before and so far it has been bad. I have been spotting and cramping on and off since I started the pills. Has this every happened to anyone? Each time I have wanted to call my doctor in the last two weeks the bleeding stops so I don't call and then about two days later it starts again. I am worried that something will go wrong with the IVF because of this. I am planning on calling my doctor on Monday to ask, but I wanted to see if anybody can tell me something to call my fears while I wait till Monday morning. Has anyone had any spotting or cramps on birth control before starting IVF? I have never spotted or had cramps in my last 10 years on birth control (although I was on a different pill).

If you have any words of advice please let me know. Thanks so much!
