46 and combined pill problem..
« on: 11/01/17, 20:36 »
Hi ladies
Can anyone offer some advice please. Due to start my 1st ed treatment, but my GP can't prescribe the combined pill, due to age and that I have never been on pill before.  I have tried the online doctors but again refused.  Feeling really at a loss so hoping one of you lovely ladies, may have some advice. Xxx

    Hi kaykay1970 I was in a similar event situation to you. I underwent donor embryo cycle in Oct 2014 (I was 39 then) and had to align my cycle to that of the egg donor's. I'm assuming this is why you need to be on the pill - to regulate your cycle before you start oestrogen? I too shouldn't take combined pill so the clinic prescribed me a progesterone only mini pill that you take everyday without a break. just ask your clinic to prescribe progesterone only pill (POP).
