I have long suspected that being on BCP for approx 14 years might have had something to do with my ectopics. Since they both implanted way down at the fimbral end, that is a good indication, although not proven, that my cilia were paralyzed. Now there has been a study done: http://www.springerlink.com/content/v078712q35232273
But it also says the effects were reversible. I wonder what 14 years of a lab test would prove! Oh well, too late for me to try to reverse the effects!

Very interesting study. It could very well be that this was the issue w/ your pgcies. Isn't it sad that something that protects us from having unwanted children can also damage us & cause us to not have children when we WANT them?

Kinda makes me glad I was only on bcp for one year!!! My husband was my first, and we waited until we were married to have sex, so i didn't even need to worry about bcp until we got married. A year later I was ready to start trying.... now a year later, im STILL READY!!!! lol- makes me wonder how much harder it would've been if i'd had been on it longer?

oh i am CONVINCED BC was what has caused all my problems. How can it not? All the artificial stuff we are putting in our bodies! I am glad that I did not get pg earlier in life, so I guess that is the trade off!

And it's not like it was my choice to go on it at such an early age. I had terrible cramps as a kid, but the other part of the problem was that I have a high tolerance for ibuprofen/actemenafin (sp?) so it was doing no good for the cramps. So all they did was give me a pelvic exam, and since that was fine, they put me on BCP. Then once I was older and on my own, I was afraid to go off the pill bc I was afraid the horrible cramps would come back so on them I stayed, and then I got married, and we weren't ready to have kids, so on them I stayed . . . and so on, for 14 yrs total. Back then you didn't question your dr, bc they are the dr, KWIM?

There's no mention in all the risks they tell you about that this could be one of them. It should be.

Now that i'm older and into the holistic lifestyle, *if* we have kids, BCP will certainly NOT be recommended to them by me!

Not everyone has our issues, but I guess it is a trade off. If I have a daughter, I would rather have her on BCP then to get pg in college or HS when she isn't ready. I guess it is a fine balancing act!
