I'll definitely join in. So I came of BC (Estelle) in november had my withdrawal bleed on the 25th for 6 days then nothing... Getting so annoyed im on like CD46 or something.. so I decided since my cycles won't start again for me to start tracking things I am doing it mid cycle lol.. So for the last 3 weeks I've been tracking CM which hasn't really changed untill today when I got my first lot of EWCM YAY!! hahaha I've also been temping! So I don't know if I am ovulation at the moment or not guess my temps will let me know soon enough...!! I went to the docs this morning and was a bit naughty.. I told him I stopped in October so I could say that its been 3 months He told me to come back in 2 months if nothing happen and we will run tests. If things are not right I am not waiting over a year to fix them so I lied a little to move things along. Weather I do or dont have a fertility problem if I want tests I should be able to get them...
But anyway fingers crossed that I am ovulating as we speak and I will get a BFP soon
Sigh. Just reading these makes me feel better to have company. Came off the pill in August. Cycles so far: 38 days, 33 days, 35 days. Then after having a normal period on Dec. 1, another one on Dec. 17??? But this one was shorter and just weird. I dunno. So now I don't know if I should start counting from that one or not. If I count from that one, it's now CD23, which would sort of make sense for me because I had ewcm two days ago... CD21... which would bring me back around to about a 35 day cycle. You think that random 16 day thing was just a weird short cycle due to coming off the pill even though I seemed to be regulating?
I haven't been temping or using OPKs just because I am already so disappointed every month when AF comes and I feel like the more effort I put into it, the more disappointed I'll be.
Sorry for the long post. I'm new around here. I needed someone to talk to 'cause no one really knows we're trying.
Hi, so happy to see this thread, nice to all be here for each other! Ok, so I came off BCP (microgynon) on 28 dec, after 14 yrs without a break, had withdrawal bleed 1-4 January, and now waiting patiently for mother nature to take control. I'm actually over in ntnp just now as I'm trying to stay relaxed for the first few months
OMG this is kinda scaring me. I just got off the pill a couple of weeks ago. I already had irregular cycles to begin with, before the pill. And really looong cycles. I hate to think what they would be like now. I'm pretty sure I won't have another period for a very long time. The first one off of BC was like two days long and barely anything at all. I'm pretty sure I'm nowhere near ovulating, either. A whole year? Wow this is frustrating.
I came off the pill (microgynon) in april 2010 cycle were been 35-37days but not one since october. Done several tests all negative so just a waiting game now. Started agnus castus a few day ago so this may kick start things fingers crossed. Nice to no I'm not only one going through this xxx
My periods have always been irregular, then I was on the pill for 7 years (I did do a few 1-month breaks while on it, because I wanted to see if my period was still coming fine on its own). After I stopped it, I had perfectly timed periods for 3 months, but then it got all irregular again. It's funny, because I usually have a perfect 30 days cycle every other month, but it's the months in between that's always longer (40 days max so far). I was wondering if my ovaries are working on different schedules or something. I finally scheduled a OB appointment for the beginning of February to see if she can find any reason for it. In the meantime I'm changing my diet drastically, because I wanna make sure it's not because if my rather poor eating habits.
I'm on to cd41 now...it's possible that I ovulated over the weekend, as my temp has gone up. But it's still a waiting game - FF won't confirm that I've ov'd for another 3 days or so...and that's if my temp stays up
So annoying that the medical profession refuses to help until you've been struggling for over a year. I plan to go to see the GP when I'm on cd80, as then I'll have skipped two periods. I really hope it doesn't come to that though!
