How long after stopping the pill did your cycle regulate?

It sounds like your body was gearing up to ovulate on CD19 but didn’t, and now is trying again on CD37. If you are tracking and charting your BBT it can help you confirm ovulation, whereas OPKs just predict when you might ovulate soon.

Personally my cycles regulated pretty much straight away after coming off the mini pill (at age 25).

Hi bee, when I went off BC I didn’t get AF for almost 5 months! Then regulated after that.

@LondonAutumn:  did you do a pregnancy test? I literally got pregnant the first month I got off protection so that could be your case too and with some tests early false negatives are common.

I agree with

@sapphire27: you most likely geared up to O but for whatever reason didn’t (not unusual or uncommon). Are you charting your BBT or CM? These are really the only way to confrim ovulation. Also, how long do you test your LH? I always found it helpful to keep testing for a few days after my postive OPK to know for sure my surge has passed and there was a sustained temp rise. 

As far as my cycle after getting off BC, I had an IUD and my cycle regulated pretty quickly and I got pregnant twice within 6 months (one was a chemical). 

Baby dust to you!!

Never. For me, the pill was masking PCOS. My cycles ranged between 40 and 70 days. You should definitely start charting your BBT; it was the only reason my doctor took me seriously that something was going on.

@LondonAutumn:  Sounds like it! Our bodies are wild, random creatures and biology is messy. I think temping will help bring some clarity to your cycle and it might just take alittle bit longer than the first time. A lot has happened since you last got pregnant and things change. I would encourage you to read “Taking Charge of Your Fertility” to get to know your cycle better. Good luck to you when you start trying again!

@LondonAutumn:  Yeah I didn’t think I did either because I’m a size 00 and have no skin problems. That’s also why it was difficult to get doctors to take me seriously because “you don’t look like a PCOS patient.” But the hormone tests and my polycystic ovaries don’t lie!
