Hello ladies!

I'm excited to be here, as my husband and I are planning to TTC for the very first time in the next few months. I saw my midwife last week, and she said it would be good to get on prenatal vitamins before we TTC. I'm currently on bc pills, and plan to stay on them up until we are ready to TTC. I heard there is a higher chance of getting pregnant right after I stop bc. Has anyone else been in this boat? I would love to hear your stories.

Hi Jass! Very exciting that you will be TTC soon. I would talk to your midwife about how you should go off the pill, it can go either way. Some women are very fertile while it can take others several months for their body to regulate as the hormones leave their system. Good luck!

Thanks Melissa, I talked to my midwife about how I should stop the pill, and she said after I'm done with my last packet of pills that I didn't need to wait to regulate my hormones. I have a friend who went on the pill for 2 months to TTC right after as they didn't have good luck getting pregnant before that. She got pregnant within a month after stopping the pill.
