Thank you all for your advice re: charting/temping. I ordered a BBT thermometer from amazon and it arrived yesterday so I’m just starting to temp now! I also got the Fertiity Friend app so that I can chart. Hopefully this gives me some insight about what’s going on in my body!

Yes, it’s so confusing how everything says your cycles should return to normal! It made me feel like there was something wrong with me, when clearly it takes a lot of women some time to regulate!

I also used the continuous method – wonder if that could be a reason why my body is having a tough time. It was such a great idea at the time – I loved being able to control when I’d get my period haha. Now I just feel helpless!

It will be a year off BC next month for me. Currently on day 111 of this cycle 🙁 See a dr if you haven’t had a normal period in 6 months. They will tell you it can take up to a year even. I was in the same situation as you, I started the pill at 15 and I didn’t have normal cycles really then either. I found out recently that my wonky cycles are likely due to a low BMI so I’ve been working on getting that normal. Everyone is different is what I learned! Best of luck to you and do not stress about it!!- that will likely make it worse 🙂 Until then just enjoy not having crampy periods lol.

I got my IUD taken out in November (so still fairly recent), we are hopefully going to start trying late next year, so I wanted to give my body time to get back to “normal”…right now my cycles are extremely long.

good luck! Excited for you!
You might already know this, but it helps to take your temp at the same time each morning. Regularity really does help. I find my temps are all over the place when my sleep schedule is off.

I went 6 months before having a period after the BCP. Now my cycles are normal and like they were pre-BCP. It definitely took my body some time to adjust tho, and I was only on it for 7 years.
