You're right, I feel different too. More energetic and positive about life, I guess. I started using it at 19 so I really don't even know how adult me should feel without it.

Yes it is the same for me. I had been on it for ten years- although switched from combined to minipill in that time.

MrsB17 you also had issues with the pill right?

Now I am currently using a mix of natural family planning and condoms I think I will use this more in the future as I appear to have regular cycles so seems to work well. Although not sure how this will be when I am breastfeeding....

Yep! I tried it once (and should probably have tried some different ones really before giving up completely). It made me so depressed I was planning to kill myself. It was terrible. I've been too scared to ever tried it again.

How are you all?

Oh dear that sounds awful! I think they need to have more of a warning of the negative psychological and mental health related issues surrounding the pill.

Things are good here! I am actually no longer WTT but actually in the TWW! A shortage of condoms this weekend in our household lead to us moving up the TTC date and I was ovulating!

They do. It was terrible. I'd been feeling horrible for a while but just put it down to being stressed, just feeling a bit sad. Then we were in Rome (a holiday I'd wanted to go on for a really long time) and I was utterly depressed. I didn't sleep the entire time we were there, I cried the whole time then one night I was up at 3am writing a suicide note. I luckily realised that this wasn't right, this wasn't just feeling a bit sad and I saw my doctor when I got home. I started feeling normal again really soon after I stopped taking the pill. My sleep was awful the whole time I was on it and I was thoroughly miserable.

Ohhhhhh!!!! Good luck! When do you get to test?!

AF has just shown up for me exactly two weeks after getting a positive OPK wooo! I'm pretty pleased that I got that right (or at least I hope I did!) first time trying them out. I plan to start charting tomorrow and using OPKs again in a couple of weeks.

No news on husband's job yet which is a shame because he's pretty eager to start TTC now (he brought it up again at the weekend). Hopefully soon though. The wait is killing us but it will be worth it. It's getting harder to not just start now though...

It is so lucky you realised that wasn't normal- that could have had a really bad outcome...

Exciting you are beginning to chart! I remember how cool it was the first month to pinpoint when I ovulated. And awesome OPKs worked for you- I think I said before I found them a bit confusing. Does having the coil impact your charting? I guess not as it is non-hormonal?

Have you thought about when you will get your coil removed? Before honeymoon or after? Sorry if you said before I can't remember!

And my AF is due the 4th as I have a 12 day LP. So will try to hold out to test until the 5th if I can!

It could just be coincidence with OPKs but I'm going to see if the same happens again this month. I have the copper coil so nothing to interfere with charting (at least I think not anyway).

I haven't decided yet. I'm tempted to get it removed now but I know we'd end up accidentally on purpose not using condoms...

Oh not long then! Exciting! I'll be keeping an eye out!

A couple of jobs have literally just been advertised for the place my husband wants to work... I'm praying this means they've sorted the admin stuff out and are in the process of advertising all the jobs soon (like tomorrow soon). I'm not sure we can take much more waiting!

MrsB I'm excited those jobs are starting to get posted. I know exactly how you feel about that. I'm also glad you figured out your BCP was causing your depression. What a terrible experience. I have had very depressive times over the last 10 years, but I could always blame them on something (death in the family, death of a friend, DH moving to another country for school before we were married). I have also had almost constant mild depression, but I didn't really realize it until coming off the pill and noting how much better I felt. I wonder now if it made those previous times worse than they might have been?

I think I'm due to ovulate in the next few days then hoping AF comes on time and I'll know I'm good to go for March!

Swedengirl - Keep up updated!! Fingers crossed
