krm1984 :  YAY!!! that’s so exciting, congratulations! It’ll be intereting to see how your body reacts to coming off the pill! I will finish my last BC pack the day before our wedding, I’ll be 35 also, so I’m pretty excited. I have serious baby fever. A coworker told us his wife was expecting yesterday and I got all choked up because of how excited I am for them… we’re not even that close! hahah

krm1984 :  Congratulations!! That is super exciting. 

I would personally probably keep taking BCP until after my wedding if I was you. Just because you never know what side effects might occur after 20 years on a drug. BCP is known for being helpful with acne, and when I came off of it I found myself breaking out quite a bit. Just food for thought. Not that a pimple on your wedding day is the end of the world, but you never know what’ll end up happening with your period/bleeding, mood, appetite, sex drive, and so on while your body adjusts to life off of the pill.

Yay exciting times ahead bee 🙂

Although I absolutely have to second PP, my skin was an absolute nightmare after coming off the pill. Not like “oh no a few pimples”, but full face and body acne, way worse than I ever got as a teenager before the pill, that took 8 months to clear up before my hormones regulated. I would hate for that to happen to you right before your wedding!

I went off the pill in mid-October and am also intrigued to see what my cycle looks like. I’m using the Ovia app to track and haven’t bought any OPKs yet. We are planning to start TTC early next year, as soon as we move to a new state, so hopefully I’ll have a couple of months’ data to go off of by then and get lucky (heh) within our first couple of cycles.

What are you observing about your body off the hormones? So far I think I’m breaking out a little more than usual but nothing too crazy. I had some cramps that weren’t synced with a period or PMS timing. Other than that, no mood swings or anything to speak of.

I will say, since I stopped BC, our sex life has decreased. Darling Husband is worried about getting me pregnant before we “officially” start TTC. I think it’s partly because the move is a bit daunting- he has to find a new job, though we have savings and are moving to a lower cost-of-living area than where we are now. Also, he’s got a big trip early next fall that I’m encouraging him to go on, a reunion of his grad school friends in Europe for one of their weddings – but of course he won’t go if I’m about to give birth, or if we have a newborn. I’m so excited about becoming a mom though! And he’s acting even more affectionate and attentive than he normally does (which is a lot) so I think he’s also feeling the buzz of anticipation about growing our family.
