Changing birth control before trying to conceive
AdventurousJ posted:
I just got put on my husbands insurance and now my birth control is not a preferred type. I have to pay $35 a month instead of $9. I could switch back to the type I used to use, but it has more hormones and I don't know how much that would affect us trying to conceive. Should I just stick with paying more and not messing with my hormones. We are going to go off BC in 3 months to start trying. Our real wedding is in 3 months so I don't want to go off of it before then.
