anyways….I just didnt want to put a lot of pressure on myself as I know excitement can do similar things to stress on the body and I didnt know how my cycles were going to be coming off BC pill so I figured that might be a pain enough lol.

I know its easier said then done to say “relax” but its more so… just KNOW thats its normal to take time. If you know that and your believe it and repeat it it will help….at least it did for me. I wasnt fully “relaxed” about it I guess but its more of a self hypno that “this is all a part of the process” lol and I was “less uptight” about it… thats a better way to say it…”less uptight”.
