Hey there!!! πŸ™‚ I got off the pill (last month I took them) in April. I’m not regular still but I think they’re starting to get better (I think…?haha). They’ve gone from 24-30 days. We haven’t been using any other sort of contraception at all but we’ve not really tried to put too much pressure on ourselves. We still want to have fun when we have sex, not just think of it as a means to an end…you know? So hopefully we’ll get there before too long, I’m so ready to be a mommy!!!

I went off the pill a year before we started trying. I highly recommend going off sooner than later so I think you’re doing the right thing. It took my body months to get my first period off BC, and even a year later it hadn’t resumed normalcy. And my cycles were pretty regular before I ever went on the pill. It’s different for everyone, though.. some women have no trouble getting back to normal at all. 

Good luck!

@LoveliestLove: Oh please–no Too Much Information disclaimer needed w/me πŸ˜‰ My sex drive SKYROCKETED. Like to the point that Darling Husband said he was going to put me back on the pill just so he could take me back OFF the pill. Haha!! It didn’t last forever though, granted I do have a higher sex drive than before, but not the crazy-monkey-want to come home for a nooner sex drive πŸ˜‰

@AvantLaLettre: That’s good to know that I’m not the only one who’s yo-yoed around!

@LoveliestLove: It is a lot of fun though, I must admit πŸ™‚ That’s why we’re trying not to focus on the fact that we aren’t pregnant, if we get to the 1 year mark and we aren’t pregnant yet, then we’ll look more seriously into some of the ovulation kits and whatnot, but we really don’t want to put that much pressure on ourselves right now. Just have lots and lots of fun int he meantime πŸ˜‰

I was on the patch too. We are currently on our second cycle of TTC. My first cycle post-BC was 42 days long. I was always, always, 28 days. I had a lot of weird symptoms ie. cramping, fatigue, bloated, headache-y for most of those 42 days. This cycle has been a LOT better and currently at day 24 and no signs of AF. Actually, no real symptoms at all. Point of all of this is, be aware of all the symptoms of coming off the patch. It’s a rough go, but it does get better!! I think it’s a fab idea to rip that patch off sooner than later. Good luck πŸ™‚

@Lindsay05: 42 DAYS?! I thought my 30 day cycle was bad πŸ™ Yikes!

My pms and cramps and whatnot are definitely worse than before, so there’s a downside, haha
