DH and I began TTC this month, I went off of BCP and had a period right away so now we are just trying to get the timing of my ovulation. I’ve always been pretty regular, but the whole charting thing is quite confusing. Anyway, tonight we BD’d because I thought I was in my fertile window. He made a comment about how “slick” I felt, when most times we need a little assistance to make sex comfortable for me. Is this a sign of fertile CM? Like I said, we are both still trying to get the hang of this so any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Birth control really messes with your hormones. The BCP could actually have been the reason you needed lube before. Your libido may increase too! It could be your fertile window 🙂 But there’s no guarantee, as it often takes a while for your cycles to regulate after coming off birth control.

@Schatzie821: thanks! Oddly enough, I was only on BCP for 2 months, my doctor gave me a low hormone type so I wouldn’t be miserable for my wedding and honeymoon (AF was due on my wedding day). I wonder if only being on for a short period of time would really mess up my cycle a lot? Who knew making a baby could be so darn complicated!

@MrsCaruso2be: Get the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility. Seriously, I think every woman should be required to read this at the age of 13. It answers so many questions about your body and fertility.

@MrsCaruso2be: I was on bcp for 10 years and my period regulated immediately when I came off it. I o’d the first and second month right away on schedule so it’s not the same for everyone. If could definitely have been your fertile window.
