My husband and I have both decided to try and have our first child. I have stopped taking my birth control for about 1 month and I sadly dont know when Im ovulating. If someome who give me some tips or replys that would be great. I've never done this before so some helpful advice would be great Im turning 26 this aug and I think were ready
When first going off birth control, it may take a few months for your period to return to normal. It's recommended you wait at least two non-pill cycles before getting pregnant if only to make it easier to date your pregnancy.
Go to the WedMD ovulation calendar...it really breaks it all down. I have been trying to get pregnant with my boyfriend for 2 months now (I am 27)...this is month 3 and it really feels like I might be pregnant....fingers crossed! I have never been on birth control though. You are definately going to want to wait 2-3 months after you stopped the birth control before you start trying to conceive.
For sure go to the ovulation calendar because it gives you a visual and bascially walks you through when to have sex and when the man should save him sperm men.
