Trying to conceive
13/08/2014 at 15:47
My first baby is almost a year old and I recently went into my OB to get on the pill because we initially were going to wait to try for another baby. I was instructed to start the pill the day after my period ended which I did. So my regular period started on the 25th of July and ended on the 29th so I started taking the pill on the 30th. Well 10 days into the pack my husband and I changed our minds and decided we wanted to start trying again, so I stopped taking the pill on the 8th of August and 4 days later (yesterday) I started to have some light bleeding that became a little heavier today. Now my question is, does this count as my period and should I start tracking my cycle off of this date or wait until the 25th and see if my regular period will start? Like I said I had only been on the pill for 10 days so I don't know how long it will take for my cycle to be regular again.. My husband wants me to track my period so we can test his theory of conceiving a boy if we have sex right before my period. Of course I know the likeliness of it working out to actually conceive a boy doing it that way is slim but he is set on trying it.. Summing it up I just want to know if I can base my period on this the 12th or wait to see what happens on the 25th?
