Ok so I am new to charting. I thought I would start basic, tracking changes to CM then add to it if need be. I dont have a FF chart, I am only using my wall calendar, and the help I wanted was about counting time (I always seem to mess up somewhere).

Anyway. I have just had Implanon removed on 12/12/12. I then had a heavy bleed starting on the 14th which I have counted as my period. It may have been a withdrawn bleed, I'm not sure. Monitoring my CM after AF finished, generally I felt dry and had white/creamy CM. I noticed a change to clear/wet/slippery on the 24th and EWCM on the 25th and 26th, then back to clear/wet/slippery on the 27th, then EWCM on the 28th. On the 29th suddenly it was thicker, white and kinda clumpy looking.

Oh, by the way when I had the implanon I was regularly having 2 medium/heavy bleeds most months.

So I am going under the assumption that I am text book - 28 day cycle, 14 day leutal (sp?) Phase etc. Because I am estimating that O was on the 28th (based on cm).

So is AF due on the 10th or 11th? Trying to figure out if I was doing it right, I downloaded an app which says AF is due on the 10th and when I tried to look up when to POAS that calendar said I was due on the 11th.

I am very confused, any help/tips are more than welcome!!

based on your CM I would say you O'd the 28th. Your LP however might not be 14 days. It could be anything from 10-16 (maybe more or less) If it's under 10 there could be a problem but seeing as you are just coming off BC it could take a while to sort itself out so I wouldn't worry too much at this stage.

I have no personal experience with implanon but I was on BCP and it took a while for my horomones to sort themselves out after. My LP was 11 days most months.


But you can't know for sure wether or not you O'd based on CM. Charting your temp will be the best way. FF also has an app and it's free, so if you wanted to get serious you could start charting your BBT original.gif

Depending on your own individual body, it can take a couple of cycles for your body to get back to normal. Do you remember what your cycles were like before implanon?

At this stage perhaps you should treat your ovulation date as the 28th, and expect your period around about the 11th (but it could easily be before or after). It generally takes a few cycles to figure out what's normal, whether you're temping or tracking cervical mucous. After a few cycles of tracking, you'll have a better understanding of what's normal for your body.

noi'mnot - I don't know what my cycles were like before because at 19 I was very unobservant. I had no suspicion of my period even being late when I found out I was 8 weeks pg with DD and I only found out because I went to the drs thinking I had a virus *shakes head at naivety*
DD was about 1 when I had the implanon put in and I had been bf so cycles were a bit screwy.

Tiger-Lily - I know that temping and opks would give a better result but its taken a year to convince hubby that we should start trying (by the way, this year I will be 25) and I dont want to freak him out.. besides it takes me a while to develop a new habit, so I figure I should start small and cheap until I'm more confident about remembering to check every day.

Thanks for the tips original.gif
