Not sure if this is the right place to post sorry if it's the wrong section.
My partner and I have decided to start trying for a baby in December. I'm currently taking the birth control pill and I've read that it can take a few months for my body to return back to normal. I'm unsure if I should discuss stopping my pill early with him and using a condom during sex for a few months before instead

@Laurens96 I would come off it now! It took me over a year for my period to go back to how it was before. The pill really messed my cycles up! I had a withdrawal bleed two months after coming off the pill and then didn't have another period for 11 months and then they gradually came back. Good luck!

We've had a chat and I finish my pill tonight he's said not to take anymore so will technically be unprotected from next Wednesday depending how long my body takes to get back to normal

@laurens96 I agree! I’ve been off 8 weeks and no bleed as of yet!

Just ensure you're taking extra precautions if you're not planning a baby straight away. I'd been on the pill for 18 years, stopped taking it in November had 2 periods and conceived around new year.

I was expecting a while but happened straight away

We've talked about it and he doesn't want to use an alternative. If it happens it happens.
He has 2 from a previous marriage but this will be my first so just hoping when it does happen the step kids take it well

@laurens96 I’m sure they will! Hope something happens for you soon! smile

Thank so so I. Thinking I may have compromised my pill this month too by mistake. I went out Sunday night and got drunk so think I technically missed that one as I've felt constantly sick all day yesterday and today and it don't seem to be easing. Been having stomach cramps with it too which I never get and it only started a few hours after taking it Tuesday. So definitely feeling like I've missed Sunday's pill
