@Bostongrl25:  Exciting! I don’t know if you use Fertility Friend or plan on it, but that will be a great place to start tracking everything. Good luck.

Good luck.  I stopped my BC 1.5 months ago and we are also aiming for the new year.

I am also going to see my doctor next month and start taking prenatal vitamins.

Good luck!

I started BCP at 13 for medical reasons and have been on it for 16 years!  I understand the feeling of not knowing what body will do on it’s own after all that time.

Watch out though, MANY people get pregnant the first month or two off of the pill. Even if you’ve been on them for a long time.  Just happened to my bridesmaid in July!  First month off the pill (after a decade) and she got pregnant.  So use a backup method unless you’re okay with getting pregnant right away!

Exciting, I was on them for 12 years, was supposed to stop in February, and then realized I really didn’t want to take that last pack, so we started TTC in January.  I think it’s totally fine to want to gauge your cycles before officially TTC, but we just stopped contracepting and went for it right away.  Took a couple months and I was glad we didn’t wait, because I was so anxious to get started!  Good luck!

I took my last pill at the end of August. YAY!! I haven’t really had any affects, not even skin issues (which i had last time i went off them for a month). 

I love letting my body get back to normal. We wont be TTC for awhile but i just decided i hate taking the pill.

Yay!  Isn’t it so exciting? Sounds like we’re TTC the same time as you (aiming for January), but I went off this summer for the same reason (get to know my body, let things get back to normal before trying) after 9 years on the pill.  It’s a big change!  Good luck – I hope you get back to normal quickly and don’t have any annoying side effects 🙂
