Does anyone feel like all you do is take meds and go to the doctor. I take seven pills a day. Here is my pill break down.
 


I take one metformin and a synthroid in the morning. Then I take pre-natal vitamin, folic acid, another metformin, a baby asprin, and clomid. Then the days I break out in hives, I have to take a zyrtec. I feel like I see more pills in day than my own pharmacist.
 


Just wondered if anyone is in the same boat. Now granted the synthroid and zyrtec is for my illness, but still. At night I about gag because I am taking one pill after the other.

I don't know what it is like to take all those pills but I am sorry that you have to.I think every women who has there life "together" should be able to have healthy babies.The other ones that are a little shakey (I have a few in my family) Should have to go through a screening process.
Again I am sorry...I hope it ends soon for you!

LOL- YES there should be a screening process! So many people don't deserve to be parents and get knocked up no problem! BFP's, BFP's, BFP's and those dr. appts, and meds will all be WORTH IT!!

OMG...Amanda I know how you feel. I was thinking the same thing earlier when I opened my cabinet and all the bottles were staring back at me. Here's my breakdown. In the morning I get to take a baby aspirin, amoxicillin (to keep my acne away) and currently progesterone. Then at night I take 2 Metfomin's, prenatal vitamin and amoxilcillin again. Then during that special time of the month I get to take 2 Femara pills a day. Aghhh...the life of infertility. Perhaps one day we won't have to take any pills.

Do you have to take them all at the same time? Or can you take half in the morning and half at night?

By the way I have a good question that just dawned on me.....I am on an antibiotic for chronic sinusitis, I have to be on it for 21 days, two times a day. I am on day 13, only 8 to go, should I stop it if I think I am pregnant?
