    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...

                      hey chickies,
                      i found this blog that is pretty interesting. it's all about newlyweds and their ttc adventures. Becoming Mom she pretty much lays everything out there.
