TTC- What do I need to know?
As of this past Saturday (10-24-09) I finished my last pack of BC. AF finsished on Sunday. DH and I have decided that we are going to start the process of TTC. That being said, I know that for most people (but not all) it takes about 3 months for BC to get out of your system. Basically, we are taking the "it will happen when it happens" kind of approach, at least until we feel the need to be concerned.
I've signed up for fertilityfriend.com and started some basic tracking of my cycles, bought a thermometer to test body temperature each morning and bought some prenatals (just the drugstore generic kind). Is there anything else I should be doing?
I can't get in to see my family doctor or an OBGYN until December....yes, DECEMBER!! So I haven't had the chance to discuss any of these questions with a doc yet. So I thought this was the next best place to ask some questions!!
One thing I'm wondering....I started taking Biotin to help out with my hair and nails not that long ago. Now that I'm going to start prenatals, do I need to keep taking the Biotin or should I just chuck it and take the prenatals? Is it too much to be taking both?
Any other tips would be greatly appreciated!
