Hi everyone! My name is Jessica, 28 y/o, and have finally decided to sign up after the last few months of lurking : )

The BF (37) and I have decided to start trying in June (we've been together 4 years), I know the wait is necessary but is torture none-the-less. We have a vacation planned May 16-31, after which I will be going off the BCP, and he will be quitting smoking.

I'm a bit nervous about going off the pill (been on it for almost 10 years) and the side effects that may occur. Also wondering about how long my body will take to adjust and begin ovulating...

Any advice for what to do to start prepping would be greatly appreciated!

Really glad I found this board and looking forward to getting to know everyone and getting some great advice : )

Hi Jessica! Welcome to the board! I'm Victoria and also 28!

I've never been on BCP, so I'll let other ladies answer that! Here's hoping June flies by for you!

Hi Jessica! Welcome to the board! Only two months or less to go, you must be so excited!! Have you gone for a preconception appointment?

I'm Becki and I'm your CL! I'm 24, my DH Paul is 26 and we're waiting to try for our first too - we've been married 2.5 years, but we're waiting another year or so, we don't have a TTC date yet.

Welcome and I hope we make your wait a little more pleasant! See you around the board!



Proud CL of Waiting to Try - Thanks for my sig Katie!

Hi Jessica,
Welcome to the board. I was on BC for a while before TTC our first kids. I didn't ovulate after 8 months and was put on clomid, which is how we got our twins. This last time, I stopped BC and was ovulating right away. It really depends on each woman's body. Good luck when you get to it!
