So I am currently in my second cycle off bcp. Cycle one was 25 days. I am currently on CD30 and AF has not shown. I did cramp a little on CD26 and CD29.
I suppose there is a possiblity that I could be pregnant as the only method of bc we have been using is pull out method, but I am more inclined to think that my cycles are just regulating now that I am off the pill. Also, I just spent the last 3 weeks on the other side of the world where the time difference is 12 hours so I think my body could have been confused from that.
Anyone else have a few wonky cycles before things regulated?
Should I test? In the 11 years I have been with DH I have never tested before!

I’ve heard cycles can be irregular for months after quitting birth control. Wouldn’t hurt to take a test just to see what’s up.
Are you planning to start charting? I lurk on the charters thread and am amazed at all of the things I’ve learned from those threads and reading Taking Charge of Your Fertility.

@MrsPaulsBabyBallerina: I’ve been lurking too and have been thinking about starting to chart later this year. Last month I monitored my CM but this month not so much. This not knowing if AF will show up at any moment is so annoying!

@Pink Asawa: i was regular almost immediately but every one of us is different. I say go ahead and test! The pull out method is actually pretty reliable- we were good for a year using that method.
