I ovulated my first cycle off the pill.  I had really irregular cycles before but since coming off they were 26-27 days with O on day 14.

I didn’t ovulate until 3 months after stopping.  It’s been 9 months and my periods aren’t normal yet.  Before BC, I had 42-49 day cycles.  I’ve had two 90+ days cycles and one normal 42 one so far.

I ovulated about 15 days after I stopped the pill.

I ovulated my first cycle off as the pill as well.  The first cycle I ovulated on CD14, then for the next two cycles it took a bit longer, like day18-20, and after that it regulated itself back to CD 14-16.  I was always regular before I went on the pill too.

I don’t think I ovulated on my first cycle 44 days, I am on my 2nd cycle and am now charting (highly recommended) I got Crosshairs on day 26, so another long cycle but hey at least my body is working!! goodluck!

Before taking BC pills, I had regular cycles right around 28 days in length.  I was on the pill for about 10 years, and my first cycle off the pill last September showed what I guessed to be a probable ovulation (dotted line on Fertility Friend) at CD 17.  That cycle was 29 days in total length.  However, my next cycle was 39 days in length (wow!), but Fertility Friend showed a solid line for ovulation on CD 25.  After that, my cycles have consistently been around 29 or 30 days, and Fertility Friend has shown my ovulation days to be CD 17 or 18.  I’m not sure if my information is all that helpful, as my husband and I are just this month starting to TTC, but hopefully it can show that it may take some time for the body to settle after stopping the pill!  🙂

When I was TTC, I never used OPKs and I didn’t start charting until the month after I stopped the pill. Once I began charting, I found I consistently would ovulate around CD 16 with a 28-29 day cycle.

First cycle off, but it was a long (36 day) cycle. After that they were 28-29 days.

@CookieCreamCakes:  When my cycles regulated back to 28-29 days, I was still ovulating around day 17.  Don’t give up yet 🙂
