Hello,

I found this message board today and I am very thankful to find this. I can't believe that so many women are in the same boat as I am. My DH and I have been married for over two years now and in September he finally said that he was "ready". I can't tell you how elated I was!! I was to start a new pack of BC that weekend but of course I didn't. Little did I know that three months later I would still be trying. I have read that it could take 3 or 4 months for the BCP to be out of your system and I am beginning the believe that since my face is breaking out like a teenager's.
I have been charting my temps and found that this month I O later than the other months. I also had ovulation pains 5 days ago. If I am correct in saying those were O pains that I felt I should have AF around the 27th (I was hoping Christmas for a wonderful Christmas gift!).
Each month that goes by I get less obsessed about the whole thing. The first month it was all I could talk about.
In the last two months I have found out that three of my cousins are pregnant, friends are pregnant, a sister-in-law is pregnant and countless women at my job are currently pregnant. I have to say that is one of the most frustrating things is to hear who is pregnant now.
Well, before I write a book, I should end my intro. I am just very happy to hear that many of the women on this forum are cycling about the same time I am and I am not the only one obsessing about TTC!
I am hoping to chat with many of you. Good luck to all of you TTC.

You will love this group of girls! Everyone is so helpful and friendly! My story is similar to yours. DH and I have decided we are ready to start trying! I only have 6 days left on the pill and we are waiting to see what happens the next couple months before we seriously start TTC. I'm very excited and anxious!

How did your body react after being off the pills?? I'm mostly nervous about that. I'm gonna start charting but not too sure if its the real thing b/c I know my body could be acting weird due to not taking the pills.

Anyways, good luck and tons of to you!!!

Honestly, my body seemed to adjust fine without the pill. The only few signs I got was my face breaking out, my bad cramps back again and O pain this month. I had my "old" one pimple breakout start the first month off. I used to get a normal hormonal pimple right before I would start AF before I was on the pill. This month though I have had a terrible breakout. Something I used to experience when I was younger. I talked to a co-worker of mine who said that when she went off of BC the first few months she had terrible acne then it seemed to clear up and only restarted when she was pregnant.
I am sure you will be fine and hopefully you won't even know you went off from it except to find out you are pregnant.

Welcome!!!! You will find that over time we all get extremely frustrated, but then you come on here and vent and you're still a lil frustrated, but it does become less obsessive over time....more frustrating but less obsessed with it.....anyway-we're happy you found us!!! !: )

Welcome! This is my first month off the pill as well and nothing bad yet! I've had acne problems for about 15 years now and it's finally been ok the last year or so, so if I get it again, I really don't know what I will do. I had HUGE weight gain on the pill and I just hated it. I hope I'm able to actually get it off now!!
Like everyone, of course, I keep thinking we will be able to get pregnant this month, so I'm hoping! Welcome and I hope your stay here is short and sweet!!
