If you have the funds, are dying to know and can't wait or simply love to POAS (pee on a stick) - go for it! But I personally don't like the process and tend to wait until the last day of my longest cycle (52 in your case) and if AF doesn't show up then, I assume I'm late and do a test the next day with FMU (first morning urine). Then, again 2 or 3 days later if she still doesn't show. I don't like to waste HPTs or pee on them But in the end, it's up to you. Do whatever will keep you sane and as happy as possible considering the circumstances

Don't worry. Your time will come and the cycles will normalize. It's that damn BCP messing with our systems but our bodies are strong and they get back on track with a little bit of time Besides, you could totally be preg right now! It's not over until the shows!!!! All tests can be wrong so FX

Keep us posted!!!!

I will... I think I will find myself hooked talking with you & everyone else :-D I feel so much better now knowing what might be going on and knowing I am not alone! I've got everything crossed that either AF arrives soon or a +HPT!! I just wish I was more aware of the after affects of BCP!

I have been using OPK and got a positive on 9/4/12 but then on the 14/4/12 started to bleed which lasted 2 and a half days. Usually AF lasts 5 days. Was this AF? I thought it would have been too soon after O to be AF.

After coming off BC ive had preg symptoms every month but when tested each month i got BFN.

I'm now using OPK everyday as I just dont seem to have any basis for testing mid cycle with not knowing if i've even had any sort of cycle yet. My OPK are the internet cheapies but the positive i got was quite clear but now im questioning whether it was a faulty result or not.

I've just ordered some digital clearblue ones though to try also and seen somewhere about taking Evening Primrose Oil and Vitamin B and Grapefruit juice so doing all 3 at the min
Hi and welcome

I'm in the US so it took me a few minutes to decipher your calendar dates I was wondering how you could be talking about Sept 4th already So when you said you haven't had any sort of cycle, do you mean you have not had a bleed since stopping BCP until this 4/14 bleed? After stopping BCP, you have to have a withdrawal bleed first. This does not count as a period because you would not have O'd while on the pill. Then, the next cycle will be your natural body's cycle during which you might O. Where are you in this scheme?

As far as regulating your cycles, I read on these boards that a B vitamin supplement helps. I'm not sure which B vits in specific but I'm sure you can google it!
Ooops sorry for confusing you with the dates yes I did have a withdrawal bleed on the 19th Feb but then nothing until the 2 day bleed on 14th April so don't really know where I am.

I'm still doin the Opk but nothin showin as yet

Congrats on the 100th post

You and the rest of us! I'm so mad my doc didn't tell me it could take up to a year for my body to normalize.

I'm glad you feel better! GL and FX!

OK so you came off BCP in Feb, had a withdrawal bleed on 2/19 - your CD1 of your first cycle. Since you got your next bleed on 4/14 that means that first cycle ended on 4/13 and lasted 55 days (if I did my math correctly). Was it just spotting or a normal flow? There is spotting associated with implantation so if you did O on 4/9, 4/14 could have been implantation if it was just a very light spotting of brownish pink stuff. But if it was red and actual bleeding, then it was probably AF

It takes a couple months for us to normalize after coming off BCP so that is what your body is doing. Trying to figure out how to regulate itself without the pill's hormones telling it what to do! Some people don't get a withdrawal bleed for months or their first cycle lasts months and months so the fact that you're past all that already is progress!!! Though it may not feel like it, I know!

If you want to TTC full force right now while your body is still irregular, I would suggest tracking your CM - that is your best bet. Once it goes from creamy to watery, you can start the OPKS but the minute it's egg white cm, go crazy as that is when you're most fertile and going to O soon!!!!

HTH!!! GL and FX for you!

Daisy - so have you started SMEP yet? I'm doing it this cycle. On CD4 now so wait until CD8 to start. Excited!!!

Joey - how is your first cycle of temping going? I'm struggling with taking my temp at the same time every morning. I keep waking up at like 4am or 5:30am at random and then being restless or having to have to pee so I'm forced to take my temps then. Unfortunately, I don't always wake up at those times so I'm taking my temps at all sorts of odd times. Not to mention, sometimes I don't even get 4 hours of sleep in a row when I have to take my temp!!! I guess I'll see if I get any pattern this cycle...are you all packed for NY???

AnnaSaRa - how are you doing? You posted on Monday that AF was due soon. Hope she's here and you're out enjoying some vino or better yet, we see a post from you soon!!!!


How is everyone's acne? Subsiding at all??? Mine isn't Just broke out terribly over the last few days while AF was here. I feel so gross! My body acne seems a teeny tiny bit better...so maybe there is hope

Where is everyone? ladyesq? CountryS? Countrygirl? Preg_pilot? Jezzabel? Stefanie? How is everyone doing this week?? Any testers?? I think we're due for another soon!!! I wonder how lpjkp is doing So excited for her!!! Can't wait until it's my turn

Sticky dust to all!!!
