Going off BCP...

In February! I went to the Dr. and when I told her we wanted to get pregnant in June or later, she suggested I go off my BCP in Feb or March since I had irregular periods before I went on the pill 6 years ago. I never skipped months of getting AF, but I never knew exactly when it was coming because it was never every 30 days or whatever! I will be charting and taking my temps so I know when I ovulate so we can use alternate protection before we're ready to get pregnant (husband doesn't like condoms much, but I have a feeling he will use them so I don't get pregnant before he's ready lol!) My periods were really heavy and not fun when I was off BCP, so I am not looking forward to that and hope I get pregnant soon so I don't have to deal with too many!


I'm so excited to stat this whole process relatively soon and I'm so happy to have all of you ladies here to answer questions if I have any! :)

Congrats! We are doing the same thing. I took my last BCP on sunday and AF "should" be here any day now. We want to start trying officially in April, but I also wanted to give my body time to rid itself of the BC and give me time to start being able to pay attention to the "O" signs. We too will use condoms, charts etc. in the meantime. Not my favorite, but oh well.


Good Luck! :)

We did the same thing, I took my last one on Nov 6. Are you going to chart? I highly recommend it!

Kelly- I am definitely charting as soon as I go off BCP. I know it will take time for my body to adjust, but I figure the more info I can get on my cycle, the better! It sounds confusing!
