How exciting!!  I was on birth control as a teenager since I was a distance runner and had only 2 or 3 periods a year and they were so bad I became anemic.  I was on the pill/patch/shot/some form of hormonal bc for over a decade and came off last year (we used condoms as a back-up with no issues at all) so that I would be regulated by the time we were ready to TTC.  Fortunately, my cycles more or less regulated well and after 3 or 4 months, I was pretty normal!  Enjoy being hormone-free ๐Ÿ™‚  Also, don’t be freaked out by a wonky cycle or two, it’s pretty normal as your body adjusts to the change.  A lot of Bees (myself included) highly reccommend charting your basal body temperature to see if/when we ovulate.  That way you don’t waste a ton of money on pregnancy tests because you think you’re “late” when in actuality you didn’t ovulate or ovulated much later in your cycle than usual.

Good luck, enjoy the ride ๐Ÿ™‚

@Blondee:  I didn’t read it, but I’ve heard that it is an amazing wealth of information.  I did use the free FertilityFriend app on my phone though.
