Hello! I am Christa, and I am a newbie to FAM to prevent pregnancy... I've been on BCPs since I had Cade in March of 08 and it was absolutely killing me... I swear it was about to ruin my marriage. THANKFULLY since going off, I now have a sex drive, my moods are normal, I have energy & am just generally happy. I was actually thinking that I was still suffering from PPD but I think that the pill was just taking everything out of me.

I am mommy to a one year old born March 10th 08. I am pretty familiar with charting my cycles bc I charted for 3 cycles when we were TTC him. I'm back on fertility friend and on CD 11, I think. LOL

I have also ordered Taking Charge of your Fertility and it's supposed to be here TODAY.

I'm glad to find this board & hope you girls can help with any questions that I have! Looking forward to getting to know you all!

And hey Marie! Looks like we had the same idea today, LOL

Welcome! I hope that it all works out for you. I am sorry that the pill was so hard on you, but I completely understand. That is why I am using FAM!
