Just took a pregnancy test this morning...and it was a BFP!! I know I wasn't able to really use this support system this time because I just found it yesterday, but I'm so glad it exists. This pregnancy happened quickly which is such a wonderful blessing, but with my first, he took quite a few months. It would have been nice to have a support group like this so that you knew you weren't alone. Thank you for starting this thread and I'm praying that you all have little miracles very soon!Stay-at-home Mama toEldonandUlrik

Every formulation is different and the combinations are myriad, but the basic point is that the pills you take for the first three weeks "trick" your body into thinking it's pregnant, so it doesn't prepare an egg to be fertilized. Then, when you take the sugar pills, your body "realizes" it's not pregnant, allows the uterine lining to be shed (i.e. give you a period), and you start the whole thing over again.
You take so much exogenous [outside] estrogen and progesterone that the natural hormone production factories are quite suppressed; it takes several months after those outside hormones are withdrawn (stopping birth control) for the whole axis to reset itself and for your body to produce estrogen and progesterone in the proper combinations at the proper time to induce ovulation again.
