Any TTCer's out there?

Recommended Posts

I went of BCP well over a year ago when FH (at the time) went to Iraq. I still have some flare-ups from time to time but nothing too major. I had HORRIBLE skin growing up. I hope once I get a BFP that I don't have too much acne during pregnancy.

We used different kinds of protection for a few months and now use none.
I'm sort of glad to hear that I'm not the only one. I seriously can't believe how bad my skin has been... I'm hoping it will settle down, or I may go to the dermatologist. It sucks, because with age I've started getting really dry in my T-zone, but I'm also breaking out, so mosturizer seems like a bad call. Very frustrating!

Like - I haven't had breakouts like this since I was a teenager! Its crazy. Anyone else noticed this?
we're not ttc yet, but i have gone off of bc - and jenn - i was a disaster for the first month. i feel more like myself now, tho, and almost feel like there was a cloud around me that has finally dissapated. i was on for 12 years. my skin is now worse than ever. i never had bad breakouts, but i ALWAYS have red spots now. i'm thinking about a dermo visit too.

I should've started a thread or blog or something my first month off... I was seriously crazy. My poor DH really took the brunt of it... I quit smoking cold turkey a week or so after going off the pill, which totally compounded things. Seriously, I think I was bordering on Linda Blair ala The Exorcist that month - lol.

i stopped bc and anti-depressants the same month. turned out the reason for the anti-depressants was the bc pill.....but it took a few weeks to get back to "normal". i'm gonna be a mega biznatch when i'm preggers!

I'm not TTC but I am also stopping the BCP. Now I'm a little scared hearing all the side effects.

 

I am sure I will get bad break outs since my skin is prone to break outs. I am stopping the pill cause I have been on it for 9 years. I have family history of high cholesterol and the doctor suggested I stop taking the BCP to lower cholesterol.

Ok, I have another question for you guys....

I went to that fertilityfriend site and put in my last three periods. It showed me when my estimated most fertile days are..... IF that were correct are those the only days I can get pregnant? Or are those just the days it is most likely to happen? I know I should take my temp and all that but just say that it is correct with its prediction.....

My derm gave me a facewash and a liquid to rub on my face after it's washed. Within two weeks it was cleared up. Thank goodness because I decided to do all this like a month before my wedding... silly me. He also put me on an antibiotic but I am now off of that. I still have tiny flare ups but nothing crazy bad like it was before.

Without temping and checking CM those are the days based on your cycle length that you are most likely to be ovulating and therefore most likely to get pregnant. Cycle length is a good predictor of ovulation, so it should be fairly accurate if you are regular...

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
