tommywantwingy :  I had two normal ish periods (30 some days) off BC, and then this monstrosity (my last period started on Dec 29). I have an ultrasound booked in a couple weeks and it will be a huge surprise how far along I am (and of course, fingers crossed that everything else is a-okay). From my understanding, ultrasounds between about 7-11 weeks are quite accurate for dating. I have no idea when I ovulated. I wasn’t temping, and my other symptoms/indicators, like CM, were all over the place for those three months, so it was hard to tell.

tommywantwingy :  I actually drank a tea with Dong Quai in it for a month and I think that may have helped me get EWCM again. I don’t really want to try and force myself to have AF because I’m (probably irrationally) worried that I’ll get a period and then STILL not get AF on my own then my Dr. won’t want to see me for the whole year instead of just 2 months from now. I am a tea addict but I’m careful to drink teas that don’t influence fertility one way or the other for now.

I’m also trying to take a step back and just enjoy the process (as I stalk TTC boards, lol). I started charting initially just to see if I would ovulate my first month off the pill- but it just kept dragging on.

FX on your fresh start!

tommywantwingy :   I forgot to add: I think it’s strange that birth control pills are the same dose for every woman regardless of body weight. Over the years I’ve noticed all my friends who had oops babies on birth control were overweight. I think the dose wasn’t enough for them and it may have been too much for me and overwhelmed my system a little.

AllieBee12 :  You give me hope.

Mine was

Cycle 1: 40 days ovulation on CD30

Cycle 2:75 days Ovulation on CD65

Cycle 3: Currently CD18 and no signs of fertil CM or possitive OPK. so just praying for a shorter cycle.

tommywantwingy :  

My CM has been all over the place, is really annoying, I have long periods of dry, then watery or creamy then dry and so on. The only thing for sure is that when I get EWCM I ovulate 3-5 days later.

tommywantwingy :  Update! AF arrived a few days ago on CD125! I took 200 mg of soy isoflavones for 6 days starting CD 111 that might have helped. So happy to be back in the game!
