    If I’m reading this all correctly – I don’t think you had a CP or early MC. It sounds like your body is adjusting to coming off of BCP. It can take up to 6 months for your body to “regulate” its cycles again – meaning you won’t necessarily have predictable periods or ovulation. Since you didn’t test/get a bfp, there really is no way to know. But I would guess that you had your first period at 32 days after stopping BCP, and then your next cycle was super short. 

    Tender breasts and vivid dreams are typical signs caused by progesterone. They can sometimes be confused with pregnancy symptoms becuase when you are pregnant, progesterone is high (just like in your luteal phase) and you have the same symptoms as a normal cycle.

    FWIW, when I first came of BCP, I had a 28 day cycle followed by either a 20 or 22 day cycle (which ended up being close to my normal 22-24 day cycle). I wouldn’t take much stock in your cycle lenght yet, especially after a normal, short, and then long cycle.

    ETA: Even if it was a CP or early MC, 2 full months between the beginning of that bleed and the start of the next is extreme. It is not very common for an early pregnancy to end and then cause a significantly longer time for your next ovulation to occur. My first CP, I bled and had a normal-length cycle. My second early MC, I bled and it took my HCG a very, very long time to drop, but I bled literally the entire time (40ish days). My next cycles were exactly my normal length.

    MargaritaVille :  I guess I misinterpreted “pulled the goalie” as you stopped BCP. Whoops! Either way, I don’t think you can attribute any of it to an early MC without testing.

    MargaritaVille :  if you’re tracking your cycle to avoid pregnancy then I wouldn’t be worried that you haven’t had an oops-a-baby yet or am I misreading that? If you ARE trying then 6 months isn’t that long – many doctors won’t even test you until you’ve been trying a year since that’s how long it can take an average healthy couple.

    MargaritaVille :  Unless your mother had fertility issues, it is not necessarily a genetic trait. Infertility can come in all forms and isn’t always passed down from one generation to another. I have dealt with IF for ~3 years now, and neither my mother nor grandmother had any issues getting/sustaining a pregnancy. When I asked my RE about this, and after extensive testing, she said that since there was no direct relationship with anyone else having a problem, it was likely a chromosomal change that occurred when I was conceived. I think everyone hopes they are the “norm” and conceive within those first 3-6 months. But until you have tried or have testing that proves you will have issues, you really have no reason to worry.

    MargaritaVille :  as PP said fertility isn’t necessarily genetic depending on the issue. My husband and I required IVF to get pregnant while neither sets of parents had major difficulty conceiving two healthy children each (my Mother-In-Law had one miscarriage and my mom said I took longer to conceive than my sister, but all within the normal realm of things couples without fertility issues have). We will ALWAYS require IVF to get pregnant based on my husband’s diagnosis and it just is what it is; he seemed to get the short end of the stick somewhere. I know it seems scary but honestly…science is amazing these days. Most people who want to get pregnant get pregnant one way or another.

    Ditto on being an early period
