Thank you so much for the reply. I haven't been on here in ages. I find the link interesting, as I have had the opposite reaction. I ended up just trying the birth control pill to see how my body would react to it and it did not go well at all. Within a week I had some swelling, but stuck it out for a little bit in the hope that it would get better. It didn't. I lasted for about a month and a half and was forced to stop because the swelling, pain, and some new growth was too much and I didn't want to put myself into a situation where I may need another surgery. Maybe others have had better reactions? I am not sure, but know that for me, it does not work well. I am still nervous about what pregnancy will do to my LM, but my fiance and I are still wanting a family. We'll see how it goes in the coming years.
