my name is Jessica.
So me and my boyfriend are trying to have a baby. i did post a question that i got great answers from, i just need to know, now that i am off the pill and i have been on it for almost 8 years today 11/9/09 is my sencond day off the pill, will i be having irregular bleeding spurts? because when i was on the pill regularly, i would accidentally miss a pill or two, then be spotting or it seemed like i would have my period for 3-4 days. will that be happening? When i did ask the question the pretty Ireland Susan girl answered my question and said to be having alot of unprotected sex, if my boyfriend does not ejaculate inside of me, is there still a possiblity of me becomming pregnant? because of pre-ejaculation? i don't know why he doesn't like doing it, he thinks it will hurt me, but i have not herd of such thing, is that possible? please EmPower me with your knowledge!
Thank you for your time and answering my ?Question?!!

The reason why you were spotting from missing the pill sometimes is because usually, when you're on birth control pills, not taking the pill means you are on your placebo week and this is the week you get your period.

You may have to allow your period to return to normal but in the meantime, keep having sex. In some cases this happens right away in others it may take a couple of months to achieve a regular period.

Now, regarding your ejaculation question-- pre-ejaculation can cause pregnancy but for someone actively trying to get pregnant, actual ejaculation inside of you will give you the greatest chance of conceiving. You can explain this to your boyfriend and let him know that ejaculation is not felt at all and will not hurt you or him in any way.

Good Luck ttc!
