I’m confused – you mentioned having a baby next July. For a July baby, you’d have to conceive in October, which is only next month. But I’m probably misunderstanding your post! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ah! Well, I think even with the hormone issues, a few months won’t make a huge difference. We started trying a couple months earlier than we had originally planned because we figured it could take a while (we’re a few years older than you & your DH) and I got pregnant on our second cycle. So if you think now is too early, then hold off for a few months. You’re young and it might happen easier than you think. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yeah, I would hold off for two or three months and spend that time for both of you eating healthy, getting a pre ttc check up, getting your vacinations up to date, getting a flu shot for you, and taking your prenatals, exercising, etc.  

You can also look at saving more money and trying to get your wills, banking and everything else worked out.  

A few months isn’t that long.

Why not just finish up your pill cycle and stop taking it?  That would let you get a period soon, then wait until you get a natural period to really start trying since lots of doctors request that anyway. That would put you conceiving mid-late October (edd late july early august) depending where you are in your current pack IF you got pregnant right away.

The advice I have for myself included is that if in your heart you really want a baby and your SO feels the same way… why not? I second going off the pill and getting healthy, educate yourself, visit your ob/gyn and start prenatals to prime your body for healthy baby making! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s never too early to start being a super healthy mama. Good luck!

It sounds like the OP is already off the pill: “I’ve been on BC for approx. 9 years and I stopped taking it around the wedding

But I agree that it’s a good time to get started on prenatals if you haven’t already, OP. Make sure you’re eating well, taking your vitamins and getting at least some moderate exercise. When you’re ready in a couple of months, your body will be all set for babymaking. ๐Ÿ™‚

Just get off the pill and let it come naturally- don’t yet quite try. after being on the pill so long it Can( key word CAN) take a longer time to concieve.
