- Wedding: June 2013
So my plan was to finish up my last pack of BCPs right after the wedding (2 weeks!!) try and get a regulated schedule, and then hopefully conceiving a honeymoon baby in September.
However, I am interviewing for a job (I’ve had the position before) this week and one of my friends/coworkers gave me the heads up that in order to qualify for mat leave benefits there, which are good, topped up for 15 weeks and the job is guaranteed when I get back after a year, I need to be there for atleast 12 months. So 3 months of waiting then we could concieve, we’d be looking at TTC in November now.
So, what are my options? I was excited to get off BC as I’ve been on it FOREVER, and I was interested to see how it might change my libido amongst other things.
We aren’t really condom people, and we have effectively used the pullout method, however I’ve always been on BCP so there was that back up plan.
If I temp, that only tells me the day I do ovulate, right? So if we had BD’d the night before or even two nights before, there’s a chance implantation could occur, correct?
Or should I just suck it up and go back on BCP for a few more months?
