    This is my 5th month off and I’m still not back to regular cycles. I don’t know how much of that is pill related or if I had irregular cycles to begin with though.

    I had a regular 28 day cycle, then a 21 day cycle, and then got pregnant

    My cycles regulated at 29 days for the first 3 months after getting off the pill. The cycle after that I had a random 33 day cycle, and then the next cycle I got pregnant.

    Immediately I guess, I wasn’t tracking O but I ovulated 2-3 weeks after I stopped BCP.

    I’m 8 months off and haven’t regulated yet (or, I’m fearing I’ve started regulating to a 45-50 day annovulatory cycle 😕). Headed to the doctor in a couple weeks to see if they can regulate my lady bits, as they don’t seem to want to do it themselves…

    I was having issues with several different types of BC for almost a year. I finally had my IUD removed about a month ago after having it in for only 6 months. As far as I can tell my periods are back to normal. The week after getting the IUD taken out I had a slightly stronger/longer period than ‘normal’, but I’m thinking this is probably just from the rush of hormones. My period this month is like clockwork–28 days after my last period and so far it seems ‘normal’.

    I stopped taking the pill in July in hopes of conceiving shortly after and so far, my cycles have been 34 days, 27 days and now I am on CD38 and still waiting for AF to show up. I took 4 tests in the last week and all BFN. I’m starting to get a little worried… so I might call my doctor to ask for a blood test.

    I stopped taking the pill in August after 15 consecutive years of being on it. My first cycle was a lovely 42 days – I was starting to get worried towards the end there. Noooo idea what to expect this month. 😣
