@Pumpkin78:  If it’s your first cycle off birth control, you may not ovulate. It may take your body some time to adjust. Or you may have long cycles. Are you using ovulation predictor strips? They can be fussy. Sometimes the surge of hormones is short and you can miss the test. Also, I think you get best resuts when you use them in the afternoon.

How long are your cycles? It’s very possible that you’re a late ovulator so you just haven’t ovulated yet. Also, like pp said, it’s common not to ovulate the first cycle off birth control. I didn’t ovulate the first cycle, but I did the second and I got pregnant. Also, charting could shed some light on what is going on.

@Pumpkin78: Are you tracking your temperature with a basal thermometer, checking your CM, monitoring closely your cycles and checking your cervix? Doing all these (which are free and take hardly any time at all) will provide yo uwith so much awareness about your ovulation.

And I cannot tell you how much fertilityfriend.com ‘s fertility course and the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility course has changed my perspective on everything- my body, ovulation, decision-making, everything! Our bodies are amazing… if we know how to read them.

I really, really think you should read it and check out fertilityfriend.com! They explain so much more than we can provide on the forums!
