The first question a lot of us will ask if if you are charting…not sure how much insight it will give you into a really long cycle, but in general that’s one of the best ways to start to know your body and cycle. And it should definitely help you figure out when/if you ovulate.

I regulated within a couple of months, so that’s not helpful to you, but I have read about quite a few women who take a year+ to regulate.

It can take months for some to get back to normal. It took my body 2 months to get my period after I stopped BC and I never really did regulate, from 36 day cycles to 24 , all over. That’s why I was getting frustrated bc I couldn’t pinpoint my O date, OPKs didn’t work for me.  I got my BFP after 5 cycles of trying and praying

@smrlovingrl:  yes! And thank you! I would also suggest reading taking control of your fertility.

I came off BCP at the beginning of July after having been on it for 16 years.  I ended up ovulating within 2 weeks so I got pregnant right away.  I’m not sure if my cycles would have been fully regulated or not, had I not gotten pregnant.  Obviously ovulating within a normal time seems to be a good sign.  I was very irregular when I went on BCP (at 13 though) so I was afraid when I went off my cycles would return to what they were.

I know it can take months though to return to normal.  I would suggest charting!  At least then, you can get a better idea of what your body is doing (ovulating or not).  You need to pick up a specific thermometer for that.
