Reason #657 Why I don't like taking Birth Control..

No, I don't rambunctiously have babies like the Duggars, but my body protests to these artificial hormones. My ovaries have decided to get angry again, and are being stingy with the eggs. They did this when I was on active duty, so it was no surprise when the ultrasound tech showed clusters of cysts on both ovaries.

Dang it!! They came back. It is called polycystic ovarian syndrome, and I have to find out if I actually have the syndrome part, but my body says otherwise. So, the OB managed to talk me into birth control to regulate my stubborn cycles, (not to actually prevent pregnancy, btw.) and it has tricked my body into thinking it's pregnant!! NOOO!! It is soo not cute! Bigger boobs, and a bloaty tummy. Did I mention I get emotional over everything? I tear up as if I had a little human in my stomach tugging at my heart strings. Headaches.. Not cute-- at least not until I really do want to get pregnant. And well, if we were trying, that is definitely a no go.

I am sure this is not the post you were hoping for, but I am assuming my general readers are females, and maybe you can get a good laugh at this. Needless to say, I will be off this mess in a couple of weeks!

*End rant. ;)
