I know this topic fits better in TTCAL, but I don't feel like I fit in there well, so I'm putting it here.

Ethan was stillborn in February. We were waiting for 3 cycles to try again. I've been on birth control to regulate my cycles (I have PCOS). This month i have been REALLY BAD about taking my pills. I have missed FOUR!!! But I have taken every pill this week so far

On Wednesday we got the go ahead to TTC again. We decided to wait until I finished my BC - not a long wait, my last pill should be tomorrow. Then I'd get my period Tuesday or Wednesday, and then take my fertility drugs (Femara) on my second full day of bleeding.

But I just got AF! I still have two pills left! I think what makes the most sense is to stop the BC today, wait for real, true AF bleeding (it's pretty light right now, thank god because I'm wearing white pants), and then take the Femara on the second day of AF-like bleeding.

Does this make sense? I just need to talk it through with somone, because my GYN is out of town and his partner is not great about returning phone calls. To be perfectly honest, I wanted to stop my birth control Wednesday when the OB okayed us for TTC, but DH insisted we not start TTC until it had been EXACTLY 3 months (this Sunday).

I'm not really sure, but your plan makes sense to me! I hope that one of the other ladies can be of more help.

I'm excited for you that you are TTC!

You sound like your having break through bleeding. I do not think this would count as AF yet, not unless you get full flow. Which you may not, because you missed so many pills. Actually you may of delayed your AF this month because of the missed pills. The only thing you can do is wait and see if you get a full flow by Sunday. If you dont, dont be surprised, missing 4 pills in one month (unless they were at the very end) can mess up the cycle pretty much. Good luck to you!

I say just BD away! (sorry I am really no help here.....) I hope you get a BFP soon! And why don't you feel like you fit in over at TTCAL? It seems like a good group of girls, we just need to make some new friends, its like the first day of kindergarden.

I'm hoping that breakthrough bleeding will become AF by discontinuing the pills. Luckily for me, the fertility drugs I'm on are very inexpensive, so if this cycle is a wash, I didn't waste any money, just time.

I think it's just that I wasn't expecting to be TTC. I should be almost 7 months pregnant. Everybody at TTCAL seems so excited to TTC, and I'm feeling really ambivalent. I think once I take the fertility drugs and start charting I'll head back over there.

I don't know anything about the meds you are taking but i would definitely stop taking your BC pills and consider this AF. I guess missing those 4 pills made a difference.

Good luck!!

I spoke to my GYN, he said to forgo the rest of the pills (all two of them). I'll get my period (if I don't already have it now) and I can take the fertility drugs on the second day.

Thanks for your help!

I'm glad that your doc was able to give you some advice. I hope that you get your BFP ASAP now!!
