    @cali_cat:  As you know, its different for everyone, but I would anticipate that you should get yours within the next ten days. Most commonly I see bees get them around CD16 through CD20 ish? With a few early O’ers in between CD12-15. GL, have fun! =)

    I was on the pill for 11 years and from what I can remember had normal cycles before going on it!

    My first cycle off I ovulated on day 33 and had a 49 day cycle, the 2nd cycle I ovulated cd31 (got my BFP that cycle) so it was slowly getting back to normal!

    @cali_cat:  I don’t use OPK’s but I chart.  My first cycle off of BCP I O’d around CD40 and my second was CD 27.  Hoping the third is even shorter!  I was on the pill for 15+ years and had average length cycles before.  That being said one of my best friends was on the pill 10+ years and her cycles went right back to 28-30 days.  FX you get a + soon!

    i have been off the pill for like 6-8 m now and i didnt O my first cycle (no clesr temp/cm change and ‘dark’ light period) but was pretty mch around day 15-20 for the next 2or 3cycles…then i had a super quick one (like day 10 and period at 20) then a super long one (60days) …..i think i have potential for pcos bc of my weight however…..going to gyn on thursday (and at least 1yr from ttc) but felt like you that getting back on normal schedule would be good for my body.

    basically dont get discouraged if it takes a few months….you gave your body time to get back on track so dont get upset if it isnt like clockwork rihht away

    I was on the pill for 5 years and got my first positive OPK on CD20. Surprisingly, I had a very normal 29 day cycle, my first month off the pill!

    @cali_cat:  The funny thing about O is that it can just suddenly happen!  FX for you that it happens any minute now and not in 20 days.  Personally, I think using OPKs would make me obsess more over O… and I’ve heard that they are not a sure thing. 

    Timing is all about what you are comfortable with and what is right for you!  Families grow along many different paths.  ๐Ÿ™‚
