@amazur2:  You could be pregnant, but you’ll probably have to wait another week or so to find out. I know you just got off BC, but any idea when AF should be due?

its absolutely possible.  my mother got pregnant with me about five minutes after she stopped birth control 🙂  There’s no way to know for sure for a while longer though.  When I stopped BC I had all kinds of weird symptoms in the first couple of months, so who knows.

@amazur2:  So, I just wanted to try to warn you to not get your hopes up too much. You mentioned that you just came of BC…how long have you been on it? 

I was on BCP for 15 years, and my first cycle after I came off was 84 days. I took multiple pregnancy tests thinking that I might have been pregnant, but my body was so messed up from the lack of hormones that it didn’t know what to do. Subsequent cycles were 40+ days each. So it took me about 8 months for my body to regulate into normal cycles. 

I don’t mean to rain on your parade, but jst wanted to make sure you knew that sometimes, coming off BC isn’t as easy as it seems.

@amazur2:  You really never know. I wouldn’t get your hopes up – birth control gives me weird spotting for no rhyme or reason, and I’ve been on it for the past 10 years.

Good luck though, and hopefully you’ll have a nice baby soon 🙂

The downloadable apps to track your cycle are worthless. They assume everyone ovulated around the 14th day. The only good app is fertility friend for knowing exactly when you ovulated. Temping is the only way to confirm ovulation.

I agree with @soonerbride and @2peas. Those downloadable apps do assume that you have a natural, regular 28 day cycle, which isn’t always the case. I was on BC for 10 years, the last 4 was on Nuvaring. It took about 6 months for my cycle to regulate, and the only way I knew when I was going to be ovulating was when I charted my basal body temperature. My cycles turned out to be around 30-32 days, therefore my ovulation dates varied a bit. Right off of the Nuvaring, my cycles started out at 47 days and gradually decreased as the hormones naturally regulated.

I recommend reading Taking Charge of Your Fertility. It taught me a ton about my body and my cycles, and I was lucky enough to get pregnant 2 cycles after my cycles regulated.

Just a few things to think about! Good luck on your TTC journey!

I’d recommend charting, too.  Your first cycles off birth control can be all over the place.  If you don’t chart there’s no way of knowing when your period is due. My first was 120 days, and I only got my period with Provera.  They’re still messed up and it’s been nine months.  But, you could get lucky, some do!
