Question About When I Should Stop BC...

I was just thinking about it today and if I get the next month's BC I will end that on October 19th. My wedding is November 17th and we leave for our honeymoon on the 19th. Should I get another BC pck after the next one and end it early? I don't know when I would O after stopping... I'm confused b/c AF never shows up anyway, so I don't know when to count from.... Help? TIA!!!



BABY DUST TO ALL!!!!!

If I refill after the October one is done and use the entire next pack I'll end the day before my wedding... I'm really confused...

Re: Question About When I Should Stop BC...

If you were to stop your BCP after your next period, there is a chance that you will have AF for your wedding as it is only 30 days. At that point, if you were trying to conceive, it might not happen bc you "should" be past your O date.

If you took another pack of pills, you would be in the same situation but AF would be there a couple takes earlier.

You technically should not O before CD9, so I don't really see a HM baby happening. If you took another pack of BCP & stopped midway through, you could experience breakthrough bleeding.

Sorry this was of no help Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon I just don't know what is the better situation for you.

Re: Question About When I Should Stop BC...

it is very hard to say b/c everyone ovulates at a different time. i stopped my BCP at the end of a pack and didn't ovulate until CD25. when you stop BC, your body may take a while to adjust too. honestly, i think it will be difficult to "plan" your ovulation around the HM.

ITA. I would stop taking it now to let your body adjust before the wedding and HM. I know for me, I was due to ovulate right around my wedding day and it ended up getting delayed because of all the stress. Just something else to think aboutChat Icon

Re: Question About When I Should Stop BC...

I will just let you know my plan of attack and what I have heard- I stopped taking BC the 1st week of Sept, doc said it would take a month to be fertile again, the wedding is the first week in Oct. I planned to have AF the week of the wedding, hoping for it to be gone by friday!Chat Icon (The reason I did this is my natural cycle is 21 days, so if it reverted back I wanted the 2 week HM to be AF free!) They say you are fertile when you stop taking the pill. So I would not get another new pack, just end this pack and see what happens. Good Luck Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon
