When did you start ttc?

We're not even 3 weeks married but we're considering switching to the pull out method. Hormonal birth control (all types) are giving me irregular periods and massive cysts. I'm also allergic to condoms. The copper IUD didnt sit right and needed to be removed. I'm at a bit of a loss as to what to do...

I'm at a bit of a loss as to what to do so I'm in less pain. Its sooner than we were planning by a year. So right now I either try a 3rd hormonal option, or we do pull out and if we get pregnant than maybe it's just time.

I'm 29 and he's 36. Own a 2 bedroom condo. But we're planning to move early next year. And I think it's a little soon (he and I are on the same page). We were going to wait to try for a year, three years at the absolute most.

Any advice? BC options or otherwise.

Combined pill my periods were awful and I was getting cysts. Coming off it I didnt have a period for 9 months. After that when copper failed I got the arm implant. I'm a wreck with the hormones, now my cysts are 8 to 10 cm each cycle. Cycle every 3 to 8 weeks so I never really know.

    Currently have the implant, but dr wants me to remove it (last 3 months cysts were 10 cm then bursting). Which is too bad because I was super excited about it.

    I got a blood clot from hormonal birth control after I had my son(I was 23). I too am allergic to condoms. My FH and I got pregnant at the beginning of our relationship with our daughter. She is our miracle baby since he was told he would never have kids. I used the pull out method for many years with very few scares( stress messes up my cycles). It was only when we failed to "pull out" that I got pregnant. Both my pregnancies were high risk so I got my tubes taken out a few months ago. I turned 30 a month after I had my daughter. She will be one next week. I always felt things happen when they are meant to. Good luck!!

    I can't take birth control either due to the hormones in them. But even with the pull out method you need to be careful my son was conceived due to the pull out method lol I have a period tracker that tells me when i should start and most of them are extremely accurate after a month or so once you have entered past cycles
