  • This is my third month being off of BC. My first cycle was 26 days and my last one was 30 days. What have been your experience coming off of the pill? How long does it take for your cycle to be about the same length each month? Does it ever become the same every month? It is making hard to see if I am pregnant or not because last month I was just 4 days late and not pregnant.

  • When my DH & I wanted to start TTC with our 1st, my Dr. recommended to wait 3months to regulate my cycles. I was preg 2wks after coming off. So for me, my cycles stayed very regular right off the start. I do believe though this is not the norm & we were very lucky. From what I have read that a lot of ladies taken a while some even 6mths after coming off BCP. Good luck to you

  • I'm onto my 4th month off BCP and I dont feel my cycles are back to normal just yet. Here's the rundown of what has happened since going off..
    1st month felt normal, had all the normal changes in CM, ovulated on time, had my period on time.
    2nd month was the weirdest thus far. Had very little change in CM (very dry actually) I dont think i ovulated at all. My period was about a week early.
    3rd month was relatively normal. I noticed some change in CM, not as much as month #1. Had normal amounts of CM, I'm not entirely sure if I ovulated (I can feel it when I do..) and my period was about 5 days early.
    It's too soon to tell if this month is going to be normal, because I'm just at the end of my period beginning cycle #4 off BCP. Hopefully this is the beginning of some normal cycles for me.

  • it took us trying for six months before we got pregnant with #1. I think my cycle days were usually the 28 to 29 days, but I've now been off BCP's just a week so I can't tell you anything new about this time just yet.
