I think I am ovulating though so I think it's just a case of late ov. I guess we will see when i start charting. Good luck ladies!

Yes i tested on the 12th the day af was due and the 14th both bfn ( and a defective test also grr.....) and I was going to wait until today to test again but last night I had some VERY light spotting. This morning I woke up and nothing. So I didn't test but I'm still confused whether or not this is af starting. My husband and i did the bd yesterday so maybe that is why I spotted? I have no idea what is going on. I'm so tired of waiting! BCP did make my cycles irregular. It makes me so angry!

Yeah Thats what I was thinking this morning when I realized the spotting had stopped. It's just pretty upsetting because I can't try again until af starts ya know! And sometimes I do wonder whether or not I'm ovulating but I have had 3 normal cycles since coming off of bc so I think I'm fertile just....maybe I have lazy ovaries? Ya know, late ovulation due to coming off of bc.

Yeah I know what you mean, not knowing where you stand is the worst part of it I do use OPK's and temping but I have a horrible feeling that I'm not ovulating
or the lazy ovary theory sounds good to me! are you taking any vits or suppliments?

Well since we began actively ttc which was my sept cycle, I have been taking evening primrose oil for hormones etc. I start taking it the first day of my cycle and then right up unitl my supposed ovulation ( the only way I guess is by cm) and then I stop them until I begin my next cycle. I also take just a multivitamin. We have only been trying a short time. I went off of every med I was on in may so they could get out of my system before we actively try and just when i thought I was getting my reg cycles back on track, BOOM! Another late cycle. sigh.....

sounds just like BCP to me! theres loads of ladies on here that describe what your saying . . . after my withdrawal bleed I was waiting 53 days for AF to show her face!
what multivit are you taking? is it a preggo friendly one? no vit A or D?

It is just a one a day women's vitamin it has some sort of folic acid and zinc etc. all sorts of stuff. Yeah after i stopped in may obviously I had my last bc cycle and then in june I got a normal cycle 29 days. Then I completely missed july and started in august at cd63! then sept and oct I started on day 33 so I thought I was out of the woods. Apparently not.

After going off my bcp in September, I had my withdrawal bleed and then I've had nothing for 80 days now, so I have no idea when AF will come or when I'm ovulating. It aggravates me and worries me sometimes, but for the most part I just try not to think about it, and I act like any time we bd could be the right time to make a baby, which I guess it kind of could since I literally have no idea when I might be ovulating. I tell the hubby that too and it makes bd-ing much more fun thinking we might be making a baby. I'm just going to stick with that plan for now as I don't feel like temping or anything until we've been trying for at least 6 months without anything happening. Just trying to keep it low stress.

Good luck girls!!
