Hi ladies so some of you may be aware I came off the pill, had a really long cycle 90 days, then 70 days, I have been having acupuncture and am charting. So what I would like to know is if this is similar to you what was your 3rd cycle? I am wondering will it go 90, 70, then 50??? minus 20 days each time? Was there a pattern to yours? I am wondering so then I can go "ok a 50 day cycle would mean I should TTC around day 35ish". This is confusing I know sorry :/

113, 32, 58, 32, 37, 36 with falling pregnant that cycle. So no, no pattern. Get some cheap opk off the intetnet and just start testing from cd 10. you go through a lot obviously if it ends up being a 54 day cycle BUT it's the only way I had any idea what my body was doing

ttc #1 63d, 49d and fell PG on 35d cycle
ttc #2 fell PG first 42d cycle
ttc #3 my cycles were 42-49d in length
I just used internet cheapie OPKs. Started testing at CD11 and continued testing until I got a positive OPK.
I had long/irreg cycles pre pill too. I have since also discovered my mum's cycles were 35-49d in length and my sister's are also long/irreg (sometimes 100+ days).... but she was fortunate that 5 days after her wedding she noticed EWCM, BD'd and then got her BFP 2wks later

Hi there, my first cycle was 51 days and I am now on CD29 of my second cycle. I have the same problem as you... in terms of who knows when you might be ovulating?
As a PP has said, starting testing from CD10. I have bought some internet cheapies for next cycle if I don't get a BFP this cycle! I bought a 50 pack as I suspect if I keep having long cycles I will be using a lot of them.

My first cycle was 66 days, my second was 42 days and then this last cycle was 38 days so getting shorter but still not "textbook"
I have been doing acupuncture and TCM but have also just had some general blood tests and ultrasounds and it detected cysts on my ovaries which made my doctor believe it was polycystic ovarian syndrome
this has been confirmed by a fertility specialist who doesnt see it as too big an issue as I do not have any other symptoms - it just seems to affect when I ovulate and probably how "good" that ovulation is
I have been put on clomid which I start tonight which should bring my O date forward
Long story short - it may not just be the effect of the BCP that is making your cycles long so it might be worthwhile having some basic tests with your doctor?

thanks everyone, ok so it seems its kind of a random draw, I have been testing with the OPK's but I seem to have a second faint line nearly everytime :/ was hoping for a magic answer
that it will be normal soon but i'll just keep at it. FingersCrossed, thankyou for sharing, I hope it doesn't affect you and your pregnant soon we seem to both be on a similar journey from communicating in past posts, I am a bit scared to consider anything other than the pill being the cause. If it continues for another 6 months I will seek some tests. Good luck everyone!!!

As my story above shows you don't need textbook cycles to fall PG

Your right IsolaBella, i'm just gonna do the deed everyday/second day for this whole cycle incase I can't find when i'm ovulating..I'm gonna be one exhausted lady but at least i'll know i gave it my best

Sorry emily88, I know just how frustrating it can be.
My cycles after about 12 years on the pill were 103 days, 39, 37 and this one will be 34-35 (based on my charting and OPKs)
So mine are very slooowly getting shorter. We're not TTC until after the next cycle though so I can't comment on that.

A lot of women (including me) get a faint line throughout their entire cycle (aside from when they get their positive on 1 or 2 days).
LH (the hormone that an OPK detects) is present in our systems all
the time, throughout the entire month, so OPK's will always pick up some
LH (and may give you a faint line). LH surges and increases 1 - 2 days before you ovulate, and that's when you will get a positive OPK. For the reat of the month though, LH is there, but not as strong, so you'll only get your faint line.

Mine were 18 days, 29 days, 37 days 60 days, 46 days, 42 days but am currently up to CD83!! Last cycle I got a +OPK on CD 32, but haven't got one this month. Before BCP I had regular 29 day cycles. Definitely no pattern...
