If this continues to be a BFN cycle. You might want to talk to your doc about getting progestrone pills (that you put in vaginally) or use over the counter progestrone cream to help kick start AF

@O.My.Heart:  Agreed.  Let your body do its thing.

@O.My.Heart:  Sometimes yes, sometimes no. As women get oldet the ratio of  estrogen to progest changes. That could be the reason your cycles is getting longer. I would wait a little bit longer, but if you are getting on 50+ days, you might need some help jump starting things.

@O.My.Heart:  If AF shows up, I’d get into a doctor or better yet, endocrinologist to test you for PCOS. Irregular cycles like that are a sign of it, and it’s better to find out before you’re ttc than after. I hope it’s just your body getting used to being off bcp though.

Hormones are weird things. As PPs have already given out my advice, all I can suggest is to wait. I get how frustrating it is though. I removed my implant in early Jan and have been having the oddest hormonal symptoms… the most annoying of which involves my skin itching as if hatching insects are trapped underneath it. AAAAARRRGH…. it itches so badly, and despite other symptoms I am also missing AF and getting BFN.

Do you guys want a baby right now, or are you more ambivalent? Just wondering.

@O.My.Heart:  awww it’s hard when we get our hopes up. Have you read about early MCs? they are super duper common.  I was reading Taking Care of Your Fertility and it said they can be good indicators of the fact you actually do ovulate (yay!) and therefore can reduce the # of tests youd have to take (down the road) if there’s issues.  Does that make sense?

TCOYF also said stress, anxiety,  travel can really affect AF and ovulation.

You definitely could have just ovulated way later, I did the cycle that I got pregnant. It could also be an anovulatory cycle which just makes it take longer for your period to come, I had this as well and had to often use the pills to jump start my period or else I could go a good 60 days before it ever would come. Doesn’t always mean PCOS though, I get those long cycles and don’t have PCOS – I do have endometriosis though so that’s likely my reason. Good luck TTC though! Crossing my fingers for you 🙂
