If you feel like like practicing from this point on and forget about the pills will help you get your BFP when you are ready to TTC, then I say go for it, but I also think that you should wait until you speak to your doctors first and see what they suggest.  GL

You can always stop the pill now and use charting to avoid and/or condoms until you get the hang of it. That way you don’t get pregnant and you give your body a chance to start regulating before you start trying. FWIW Darling Husband and I use charting to avoid… and use condoms during my fertile period. We’re super careful and don’t go unprotected until after I see confirmed ovulation.

Why don’t you go off the pill and start charting to start getting a feel for it, but use condoms or some other barrier method (people always say that–not sure what it would be, though), until you’re ready to try? That’s what we did.

Hashimoto’s is not always a big deal, I know more than a handful of women with it and not a single one had any problem getting or staying pregnant. I wouldn’t change my plans because of a diagnosis you just got that may or may not even be an issue.

@LoveMikey:  I have your sister disease graves disease (theres many similarities between the two) and used to be hyperthyroid but am currently hypothyroid due to a totally thyroidectomy in 2009. I was charting for 6 months post birth control before we were TTC. It really helped me to understAnd my body and spot an issue I was having. The most important thing my dr. & naturopath said is there’s no way you can have a healthy baby without a healthy mom. So I would say as long as your thyroid levels are good and stable and have been so for a while you should be okay. Let me know if you have any questions for me, I am honestly happy to help. xo

I don’t know much about Hashimoto’s, but an extra month of charting couldn’t hurt.

Personally, I stopped the pill three months before we began TTC. I started charting almost immediately to get familiar with my cycles but I wasn’t comfortable using just charting to avoid, so we used condoms until we were ready.
