    and

    When I was 15 I had a history of some fainting episodes and was subsequently prescribed oral birth control. It didn’t end up helping with the fainting but I kept taking it anyway and never really questioned it- for 12 years. Fast forward to today, my spouse and I have been trying to get pregnant for almost a year. My cycle lengths are abnormally long (like 45ish days on average) and I’m fairly sure I’m not ovulating. I’ve taken my BBT and have done OPK tests. Lab work and ultrasound confirmed it’s not PCOS. Am I wrong to feel the birth control had something to do with this? My physician told me I should have regulated by now and that it has nothing to do with taking the pill. Anyone with experience or wisdom on this topic would be greatly appreciated!

      Hi, I had a girlfriend who had a similar situation. She found a gyno who really helped her through Maiden Lane in NYC. I believe they did an internal ultrasound to look at her ovaries themselves. I think that getting lots of opinions is key for this.  – Sarah
