Trying to Get Pregnant
Options

Intro!

Hello all,

I know I have already posted a couple replies on some threads, so I figured I should introduce myself. My name is Amanda, I am 27 and DH is almost 28 (next month). We have been married for 4 years (next month). Officially we stopped preventing my last cycle (had to wait for the STD to kick in so I can get paid maternity leave). I went off Depo in December knowing that it could take my body a while before it would get back on track. Side note, I don't think I will ever go back on any hormone birth control, I feel like Depo really messed me up and that our bodies are just not meant to have it. I just started temping and checking CM halfway through my last cycle and I am excited to continue and learn more. Even though we will not be preventing anymore I am not sure how much we will actively try yet. I think we will sort of see what happens these next couple months and then if there is nothing start being more active about everything.

Also I do have a question, what does Month/Cycle mean on the WTO and TWW threads?

Thanks, and good luck to everyone!

    Welcome!

    Month/Cycle means how long you've been ttc, as they are not always the same number.

    Month means how many months you have been trying. Cycle means how many cycles you have been trying. For example:
    Come Saturday I will officially have been trying for 4 months, but I'm still technically on my 3rd cycle of trying (I have cycles more towards the lengthy side)

    Ok, I guess how do you distinguish between the two. For example July is the first month we are ttc, and I am going to start my next cycle tomorrow. Would that mean I am 1/2? And then when does the month change? By calendar month or by every 30/31 days. Sorry in advanced I am probably thinking into it too much.

    @me6agua that's right. You are 1/2.  It gets kinda confusing.  I started ttc in December so this is my 8th month but my 9th cycle because my cycles are fairly short so my 9th cycle started at the end of July and will go through August.  Once August is here in a few days I'll be even at 9/9.

    When August hits, you will be 2/2.

    Hi! It took my body a while to regulate after birth control too, and like you said I don't think I'll go back on it.

    Hi and welcome! I'm new, too. I had an IUD after my son, and while I loved that it was easy and effective (and I had no periods), I feel like it completely *killed* my libido... so I'm not sure if I would want to get back on it someday. (Mirena, so yes, hormonal). Good luck!
    Amanda
