Just like the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility, I have been contemplating an idea of taking this to the next level, something along the lines of loving our bodies and taking charge of them. I see many bees writing posts saying how their bodies are broken, not ovulating or just having crazy cycles.
That’s the root of this thread, I myself had a crazy long cycle not too long ago. As a way to forget about my cycle craziness, I decided to start taking BC again. After charting for several months previous to this long cycle, I told myself, “this is not how I should treat my body”. Instead I need to look for ways to help it and love it. So, I started experimenting with different supplements and sort of making my own schedule, keeping a diary of symptoms, etc. I keep reminding my body that I trust and love it. So far so good. I have been through two cycles, more or less regular and the most important thing, I have predicted and confirmed ovulation. I am not TTC, and I can see why someone TTCing might be having some crazy cycles, but I believe nonetheless, the body should be cared for and loved it even during TTC and even more.
