Fiance and are are TTC. I have been off the pill for over two years now and have been paying attention and charting. However, I havent had a cycle in a couple month but have still been ovulating. I am making a doctors appointment next week to discuss options or suggestions.
<br />I am a firm believer that it will happen when it is supposed to but its hard not to worry or be impatient.
<br />Anyone have any suggestions? Or currently going through this too!?

How do you know you’re ovulating if you aren’t getting AF? As far as I understand, this is not possible.

I agree with SadieBee. You can have mucous and, i assume, temp changes to indicate ovulation is coming but then not follow through with it. This isn’t uncommon for annovatory cycles. It doesn’t sound like you’re ovulating.
Hopefully the doctor will get it figured out!

If you did ovulate you should be having a period about 2 weeks later. That is the only certainty in a cycle. If you haven’t had a period, you likely have not been ovulating. Did ovulate for about 90 days 2 cycles after coming off the pill (that I was also on for about 2 years). My cycles regulated after that. If you are patient, and want to do things natrually, continue to wait it out. Did you have normal cycles before BC?

Apparently you can still ovulate without monthly periods. Your body releases an egg 12-16 days before your menses. But with an off cycle you can ovulated at difference times. But who knows, everything you hear/read or told can have different answers.
I have had regular cycles for almost two years, they just started to get irregular. In the past i did have irregular as well (so this isnt new) so i chose to go on b/c to help this.
I recently have started some woman vitamins, so hopefully this helps kick start something.

Are you temping? You mentioned you are charting – what are you charting? How are you verifying that you are in fact ovulating? I agree with PP. I’ve never heard of someone ovulating and not getting AF a few weeks later.
