@lovelyrose:  I completely sympathise. My first cycle off of BCP was the ideal cycle, I O’d at CD16 and my period came 12 days later. That was my February cycle. Then March, my cycle was 49 days, I didn’t O until CD36 and my cycle in May, I was 48 days, I think I o’d CD37 or CD38. I started taking vitex (tincture, and then pills) in early June. This cycle, I o’d on CD17 according to FF (I think it was CD20). So not sure if you see a naturopath, but the vitex seemed to help me out, perhaps something to discuss.

@lovelyrose:  I used St. Francis Herb tincture, until that ran out and then moved on to Nature’s Way Vitex.

Sending a supportive hug. I suffered with rediculous long cycles before my BFP (my longest was 99 days…!!) and know how frustrating they are. Hopefully you O’d on the weekend and this cycle will have a happy ending for you!!

My longest cycle so far was 42 days and that stunk!  I’ve heard of some women Ovulating on day #100 and still getting pregnant! The waiting stinks, but don’t worry!

If it makes you feel any better, my cycles for the first 6 months off BC ranged between 22 and 90 days. The month I decided to start charting, I ovulated on CD 26 (DH and I focused our BD CD 9-15 but had one stray “just for fun” session on CD 23, so I thought we missed my window). Well, on CD 40, I realized that my temp wasn’t dropping at all, so I POAS for shits and giggles.

BFP! I am now 30 weeks pregnant.

So there’s definitely hope!!!

@lovelyrose:  I’m sorry to hear that your cycle has gone crazy.  Mine used to range anywhere from 35-50 days and that drove me up the walls without being ttc, I can’t imagine how frustrating it would be if we were trying then!  I’m sure everything will even out for you soon!  Good luck!

I hope you get good news next Thursday! Just chiming in to say I feel your pain. My cycles are always, always 40+ days… I tend to ovulate anywhere between Day 30 and Day 40, with a 12-day LP. We’re not even TTC right now, but waiting on ovulation for NFP purposes is so annoying!
