    from my charting… I ovulated on cd20 and had a super short Leutal phase. The next month I o’d on day 18… this month don’t know yet. BUUUUUT everyone is different. How many days has it been since you stopped your pill?? You can always start temping now and/or use some opk’s. I know you can find them somewhere online for cheap.

    @nickels:  if you’re worried about okp’s then I’d definitely start temping. To make it easier you can chart on a site like tcyof and fertility friend. i use both. Fertility friend has an app for smartphones so that works great for when I’m on the run in the mornings and forget to log it on the comp. Also go grab a thermometer from target or cvs that says “Basal” on it. They’re cheap and they all have memory on them so I set my alarm for 6am and temp then. If I don’t need to get up I just take the temp, go back to sleep, and read the thermometer when I wake up (there will be instructions with your thermometer on how you see the last taken temp) if you have qustions there’s a whole thread dedicated to it

    temping will 100% tell you when you’re ovulating, okps will give you a window.. if you read them correctly! Hope I helped.

    I stopped my birth control, had a 5 day period, and ovulated about a week after that!

    @nickels: It was about 42 days… so I voted 1 month (closer to 1 than 2).  There was a similar poll recently here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/return-to-fertility-after-stopping-bcp

    I started charting BBT at day 40 because I was going crazy wondering where my period was, and just happened to catch my temp rise.  I posted about it here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/charting-while-waiting-for-af-after-stopping-bcp  I started AF on CD53.  It’s definitely a low cost option to see if you can figure out what’s going on with your body, and if you start now you might see something happen.
