when I came off BCP in July, we used condoms because we weren’t ready to start TTC until after our wedding a few weeks ago.

the sex wasn’t as good, but we dealt with it for the few months since we weren’t ready for a baby yet.

@ColoradoGirl:  If you’re only reason for wanting to come off is it might be inconvenient to get a refill, I don’t think that’s a good reason.  If there are other reasons, then you should discuss those with your husband and decide together what the plan of action will be.  Ultimately its your decision to come off or not, but you need to decide together what method of birth control you’ll use if you come off and also decide if your original timeline for TTC still stands.

@ColoradoGirl:  I have several reaction to this post-

1. You could use another form of BC, such as condoms or something for 2 months.

2. I don’t think it was fair of your DH to get upset that you didn’t say anything that night but rather in the morning. So it took you a  little longer to process your feelings about it, that’s no one’s fault

3. His comment about knowing you’d want to go off BC early bc of other people being pregnant is annoying. If it were me, I always revert back to ‘screw you’ mode so I would go and get BC and not say another word about it- but that’s me, and perhaps not the most productive way to go about it lol

4. The more sensible side of me says you should talk to him about how that comment made you feel and perhaps discuss another form of BC (after you call the dr to see how hard it would be to refill your current script)

 

I hope it works out for you!

If it doesn’t matter either way, you could always pull-n’-pray for the next couple months!

It’s going to take some time for your hormones to regulate, anyway.

That being said, your husband is being mean. Has he ever talked to a counselor about what happened with the ex and the not-his baby? I really think he should–pregnancy magnifies ever psychological problem you have EVER had!

@ColoradoGirl:  I totally get that. But, when you get pregnant you need to see a doctor anyways and explain all of that.  Why not look for an OBGYN now and schedule a preconeption appointment to go over all of it and get your BC refilled?

There’s a reason doctors want to see you before just writing endless prescriptions.

@ColoradoGirl:  Ohh I see.  I’d probably just call her up and ask her to call in a Rx instead of finding a new GP. They’re usually good about doing that, especially if you see them every year.

Regardless, you’re right the most important part is sitting down with your husband and discussing this all rationally.

@ColoradoGirl:  Just to chime in on the other bees who said it takes time to regulate after birth control- this is a very valid point to bring up with DH. I’m in my 4th cycle off trying to regulate for a TTC start date of March/April 2014! You definitely might need some time to get your cycles back to normal- and as @BrandNewBride:  suggested DH and I are currently using pull and pray as our method of BC- which is actually as effective as most other methods when done correctly and every time. Just something to consider! 🙂
