We just started TTC this month. Since then, my face has broke out. And most of the day I am having cramping in my lower stomach. What does this mean?

Welcome! And congrats on your decission to TTC!!

Breaking out could be a number of things! If you just stopped BC (birth control) it could be because of that reason. Or it could be that AF is close!

Cramping could be your body is just gettin rid of the BC, or you could be ovulating. Or AF could be coming! Ot all depends on where you are at in your cycle.

Good luck! If you don't already have one, I suggest seeing an OB/GYN. They can better answer your questions! Keep us updated'

I've been off BC for about 4 or 5 months now and I've never broken out like this since then.


I am on day 11 of my cycle. So I haven't O'ed yet, but it is coming soon.


Thanks for your help and I will keep yall posted.

Welcome and congrats on ttc! It's such an exciting and fun time! The breakouts could be caused b/c your body has gotten rid all of the bbc. I've been off bbc for about 6 months and my breakouts started just around the time of AF's arrival, but this past month, the breakout never left. I guess it could also be diet change or that summer is here so there's more sweating. I'm glad you asked, because I never thought of the other reasons either.

I do remember reading something that certain acne creams shouldn't be used while ttc, so I stopped all of mine last month. Good luck and keep us updated.

I hope your stay here is short. Baby dust wishes for you!
