Hi Joey!

I have my FX for you that AF wont show. Negative OPKs don't necessarily mean you didnt ovulate. Don't give up yet this could be your month!


I've only had one positive OPK in Feb. I used the expensive digital ones with the happy face (Since I heard the other ones can be confusing) then the past 2 months I used the whole pack of 7 around the same time and all neg . Im not sure if I didnt time it right or what but argg. its so frustrating.

Im kind of confused with the whole temping thing. I thought I was going to ovulate a few days ago (which would be around CD18), and fertilityfriend is giving me these crosshairs saying I may have ovulated on CD8! I'm a little worried since my chart is all over the place but I feel more in control knowing what's going on with my body.

Hi ladyesq !

My last few periods were fairly regular and I was feeling good that my cycles were finally returning to normal... then last month I had crazy symptoms, my breasts hurt and I had heartburn (which i never have), my gums were killing me.. and I thought for sure it was my month since I usually get bad cramps right before AF and I just had some pulling, twingy feelings down there. Then my "period" came but it was (TMI)- dark brown and very light! I took a test just in case (of course, BFN). During that weird AF and a few days after I had cramps, more tenderness and acne all over my face and chest. I saw my doctor since I was really worried but she assured me that this is normal coming off the pill since my body is trying to produce hormones again. She didnt seem too worried about it, ethough the weird AF was 7 months after coming off BCP, you would think my body had worked out all its issues by now.

Im not sure why your doctor would tell you that the pill had nothing to do with it.. I know stress and all that can cause irregular periods but its hard to think the pill had NOTHING to do with it. Its all too suspcious that so many people have issues after the pill, esp for long periods of time.

Hi Anna! Welcome
I came off BCP in Dec so I'm a little behind you and still trying to regulate my cycles. Totally hear you on the acne and other un-fun symptoms I hope next time it's a for you!!! I struggled with temping too and then realized that you're supposed to take it at the same time each day after the same amount of sleep which just isn't something I can do

Joey - my AF is due Wed too! We'll be POAS together, potentially

LadyEsq - I came off mid Dec too! After 14 years of being on BCP my body is all off as well! My doc said that it's because of the pill...odd that yours would say the opposite! SO confusing

So excited to have more people on here!!! We can get through this together.

baby dust to all!!!

I used the "happy face" ones as well - but was away with work around what I think is my ov day so think I may have missed it with everything going on!!! I am going to use fertility friend nxt cycle just waiting for my thermometer to arrive!!!!
AF is due tomorrow so even though I know that I won't get a BFP I still might test!!!!! (mad I know!)

Joey - I should test on Thursday morning, one day past when AF is due but I'll be traveling starting tomorrow afternoon so I figured I'd POAS tomorrow morning so that I could be with hubby in case it's a BFP - which is a very freak chance for me as well! But who knows!!!! FX right?

I keep reading about this fertilityfriend site - I think I might have to check it out and give temping another try next cycle. Along with the OPKs! So excited to finally have them - I'm ready to use them!!

Hi guys!

I hope you don't mind me gatecrashing the thread, but I'd like to join!

I came off BC end of November 2011 after 4 years on Microgynon, then a year on Depo injection and another year and a half on yasmin...and, my gosh, I've experienced everything under the sun since coming off BC! I'm definitely rethinking what I'll be doing about BC after this baby making has finally worked for us, because I'd never have used it in the first place if someone would have warned me that it can mess up fertility!

Since coming off, I've been fortunate in that I've had a period every month (They are ranging from 26-28 days) that, as each month goes by, has gotten lighter...at first, I was having excruciating contraction like pains when AF arrived and the last two periods have been a light flow with no pains whatsoever apart from cramping for a few days before it arrived.

I've been unfortunate, though, to get spotting from around a week before my period is due which hasn't been great. I've only had one cycle where I haven't spotted right until AF arrived, and like an idiot I thought that could mean I was pregnant...that was a bit fat BFN!

I think, as far as i know (And Fx'd) I've been ovulating (I got a positive OPK last month on the first month of using it on CD16) but I've started temping this month for the first time to get a better idea on what's going on with my body. My CM also for the first time started acting a bit more normal last month, like fertile CM around the time of ovulation which is a good sign..me and my DH have really stepped it up aswell and decided to try pregnacare conception vitamins for us both and pre-seed to try and give my body the help that it seems to need, so fingers crossed eh?

After 6 months of TTC, I'm hoping that my body is sorting itself out...I do, however, feel extremely lucky that I'm young and that all the signs are there that one day it'll finally work for us! CD2 at the minute and staying positive!x

Hope its ok I jump on here too! I came off BC in June 2011 and I've had crazy cycles as well, and the backne is terrible. I'm using proactiv and it seems to be helping but not 100% though it did get rid of most of the acne on my face. How does everyone get through the wait not knowing how long your cycle will be?
