    Has anyone out there taken this BCP? My RE put me on it to let my ovaries rest a month, and I've been broken out with itchy hives ever since. I've also been crying every day (which isn't exactly normal for me), and easily annoyed with my DH (but he's super!). Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced these side effects (or others) with this drug. Thanks in advance!

    BC Pills & Fertility Treaments

    I am 25 and have been TTC through Injectables and IUI. We have been seeing a fetility specialist for over 6 months now and have only completed one unsucessful cycle. I have PCOS and after the injectables I get tons of huge cysts and they put me on BC's for a month before i do another cycle. The BC pills suppress all the hormones so the cysts can heal faster. I am on the thrid brand of BC pills. The other 2 before this one were making me get severe migraines and making my eyes blurry. This third one so far im doing good on besides the bloating which I have gained 10 pds of water weight in 3 weeks. Hoped the info helped!!

    I am currently on desogen for my ivf cycle. This is the first time I have been on it and I do notice a couple of things, though definately not hives. I have noticed some intermittent spotting, though the nurse at my RE's office said it is because if you dont take it at exactly the same time every day you can get breakthrough bleeding. I have also noticed that I seem to be more tearful and snap alot quicker, more so than I would normally. I believe they are caused from this particular pill, as I am not on any other new meds at this moment. Although a little bit troublesome, they are absolutely normal and are caused from the hormones in the pill, which my body has not been on since I was in my early 20s. I hope your hives get better, if they dont, I would check with your dr and see what he/she says. Good luck and many baby wishes to you.

    I was on Desogen and it made me feel aweful. I was having serious mood swings and really, really bad head aches along with the worst nightmares and night sweats. My boobs also grew 2 cups sizes and were so incredibly sore. For me, desogen was just evil for my system. After about 7-8 days, I rang up asking to switch to a different pill. They put me on orthotrycyline. I was much better with the new pill. No side effects at all.

    Maybe you can switch?

    Desogen is a prescription oral contraceptive.Desogen contains a combination of female hormones that prevent ovulation.Desogen also causes changes in your cervical mucus and uterine lining, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus.Desogen are used as contraception to prevent pregnancy.

    Desogen is a combined oral contraceptive,which means that it is a birth control pill that contains two different types of hormones.It contains an estrogen and a progestin.The hormones in Desogen primarily work to prevent pregnancy by stopping ovulation.:clap:

    Desogen is one of the more popular hormonal contraceptives which you swallow once day in tablet form.Desogen contains active ingredients which in a female body stop a woman's egg from emerging from her ovary.:clap:
