I thought I was a pretty smart woman, until I tried to start making sense of this whole TTC and cycles, and all that comes with it. I’m going to try to explain this as best as possible.
I’ve been on the pill for 7 years. I took the last active pill on 07/06. I started my period on 07/10 (lasted 5 days). We had sex on 07/17 and 07/18. Then I bled on 07/22 and 07/23. Nothing on 07/24 and then bled again today (07/25). I say bled, because I’ve never been one to have really heavy periods, so I’m not sure if it is just spotting, or not. Fertility Friend says I should be fertile 07/26-07/28 and ovulate on 07/29. Shows my next period shouldn’t start until 08/13.
I’m confused! Surely I’m not prego and this is just my body’s way of reacting to the absence of the pill. It would be okay if I was pregnant, I just never thought it would happen this way. But even if I were to test, how would I know when my missed period was suppose to happen with all this “couple day” bleeding? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I would talk to my mother about this (she’s a nurse) but I kind of want this to be a private thing between my husband and I. And the family is already hounding me about having a baby, the less information they know, the better. I don’t want them to start keeping track of my cycles. 🙂
