I'm on day 72 and today is the first day I have noticed egg-white looking cervical mucous so hoping that's a good sign! My temps have been really stable (from 97.1 to 97.5) the past 15 days so maybe that is good too.

Well, the EWCM on CD22 left as quickly as it came... we BD'd on CD21, 22, and 24-- this is all counting from that weird AF that came early. I know what you mean about not caring as much about being pregnant as just knowing what the heck is going on! That's why even AF is welcome, 'cause it gives me a starting point for next month. Anyway, I'm gonna guess that today is CD27 of what seems to be hovering around a 35 day cycle, which puts me just inside the 2ww. Let the imaginary symptom spotting begin. Anyone else expecting AF around the 21st?

Hi all, I am more of a reader than a writer on the forum but I thought I would share my experience, hope you don't mind!

I came off the pill at the end of June 2010 and had my withdrawal bleed 25th June - 28th. I then had a very very light period 9th - 11th July. I had one day of bleeding on 31st July. I was already taking agnus castus but my friend recommend milk thistle (she said it clears out the liver which is where some of the chemicals from the pill get stuck). I started bleeding four days later on 27th and had a period until 29th August.

I started charting on 27th August, this cycle was 28 days but only 6 day luteal phase, my next cycle was 32 days with 7 day luteal phase, then 28 days with 8 day luteal phase. For the next cycle because I was worried about the luteal phase I started taking a B6 complex (Holland & Barratt B50s). I have stopped the agnus castus and milk thistle as I felt my cycle was regular just the luteal phase problem. I also reduced my exercise as I read that too much exercise can affect the luteal phase. My last cycle was 37 days with a 14 day luteal phase! I was convinced I was pregnant was the luteal phase was so much longer but then AF came . I am now on day 14 of my current cycle, no sign of ovualtion yet which is a bit annoying as I was hoping it would come on day 14ish and I would have a 14 day luteal phase again and finally be normal but it appears not!

I'm sorry this is quite long and drawn out but I guess what i'm trying to say is have you guys tried milk thistle? It seemed to do the trick for me cycle wise, my periods also became very normal after the milk thistle. I'm still working on the luteal phase thing but hopefully I will ovulate within the next few days and have another 14 day luteal phase (or even get pregnant this month!).

Thanks for the tip about the milk thistle - I may well give that a go next cycle. Where do you get it from and how much did you take?

I did an OPK with FMU this morning and it was as dark as the one from last night - I'd say about 60% was as dark as the control line - and then I did another one at 11am and it was back to being really faint. So...I think that might have been my surge. My temp dipped a little bit this morning, so together with yesterday's drop in temperature it's looking good. I just need everyone to say a little prayer that my temp goes up either tomorrow or Friday...

I don't like the thought that it can take upto a year to sort your body out, THEN it takes an average healthy couple upto a year to conceive!! I honestly never realised it would be this hard!

GL for your March BFP though hunni, please make sure you pop in and give us some hope when it does happen xxxxx
I was JUST saying the same thing to my husband last night -- I would love to be pregnant, but at this point I'd settle for just knowing that my body is working as its supposed to!!

I've never ever had regular cycles except on BC, and just came off last month to TTC and I'm really really REALLY hoping my body will fix itself and ovulate on its own so I don't have to drag my body through fertility treatments.

I just want to push a 'fix' button, or become a psychic so I can see the future and know it all turns out okay.

Hi katiekittykat I got it from Holland & Barrett and took the recommended amount, have tried to post the link but it won't let me as I have posted less than 10 times so it thinks its spam. I only bought the one pack, took them and didn't buy any more as I felt happy with the result & cycle has stayed regularish!

JH - Do you have to wait for a new cycle to start before taking the Milk Thistle?

I might give it a go, but I'm waiting for my first proper period since coming off BC. Should I wait till a new cycle or start taking it now?

I don't really know when it's best to start I think I just started it the day I bought it as I just wanted to get on with it! I guess take it any time as it will start helping your liver clear out as soon as you start
