11 mos post op on BC, but pregnant anyone else?

Recommended Posts

I am 11 mos post op @my goal weight and just tested positive on a hpt. I have been on bc for 4yrs changing it once because of all the hormonal issues from loosing the excess weight. I had insulin resistance that has since been reversed along with pcos I was being treated for...the bc was for #1 prevent pregnancy for first yr and yrs to come. (I already have 4) #2 regulate crazy cycles post op. #3 help control cyst. Anyone else get surprised with a positive pregnancy while on BC? (Especially having a hard time conceiving before vgs)

Not me...I was actively trying (and used fertility treatments) but I have seen it over and over again.

Increased fertility is one thing we experience as we lose weight. In addition, those wacky hormones for months post op can't help. We see folks here on all sorts of forms of BC that get pregnant without trying, especially ladies that previously had trouble getting pregnant.

It can't be easy to have a surprise like that, especially when you were trying to avoid a pregnancy.

Best of luck,
