I’ve been stalking the TTC boards for months, and it’s time I joined the fun! My Darling Husband and I decided that I would stop taking birth control in March. I was diagnosed with PCOS in March 2011 and I was anxious to get my body used to being off birth control and ready to TTC. Although we aren’t going to officially TTC until the end of this year, my prescription ran out and it seemed like the right time to go off the pill and try to get my hormones balanced out. Before I was on the pill, my cycle was all over the place, ranging anywhere from 30-65 days in length. I did a lot of research right before I stopped BC and began taking a women’s multivitamin and Vitex (I think it’s also called chaste berry?) to balance my hormones. I also started eating much healthier and have lost 12 lbs! Those things seem to be working because I had a 35 day cycle right away! I’m on day 19 of my 2nd cycle off the pill and I’m pretty sure I ovulated yesterday. We would be thrilled to be pregnant, but we’re also trying to just enjoy our time together. Since we’re not technically TTC, I’m trying so hard not to over analyze every little twinge I feel, but it’s not easy! This limbo between not preventing pregnancy and actually TTC is hard!!! Anyone else in the same boat?
