hey i'm new :) ttc #1

my name is aeryn i live in texas and i am 20, almost 21. i am ttc #1, it will be my hubby's 3rd. i stopped taking bc on july 25th (took it for almost 4 years) and am late on my period but annoyed because all i get are negative tests. i used to be irregualr b4 the pill so idk if my body is getting back to normal after stopping the pill, i'm irregular again, or i really am pregnant and the tests are false negatives. i've been taking prenatal vitamins for about 2 months. i also have HPV :((( but it is very very slight and my dr. said that HPV cannot effect fertility or the ability to become pregnant. we very much want to become pregnant, we have been trying for about a month now. i can't wait to meet people who are on the same journey as me :)

Hey welcome! I am TTC my first too and it's nice to meet someone else that is as well. However I have been trying for a long time. I have unexplained infertility. I also have HPV. Last month I found a great OB/GYN who started me on fertility meds. I did ovulate, but unfortunately the follicle was more than likely not mature enough.

Welcome to the board! Things can be wacky after stopping birth control. I would definitely recommend looking into charting your BBT (basal body temperature) and using ovulation predictors to help determine your most fertile time. Good luck to you!! :)

Welcome to the board! It can take a few months for your cycles to regulate after coming off the pill. I hope it doesn't take too long for you :)
