Hi ladies, I'm new to this site. Just coming on to get some advice/reassurance/support. I'm 28 and came off the pill in June after 10 years hoping to conceive our first child. My husband is a FIFO worker, so I was ready for a potentially rocky journey to get our timing right. What I wasn't ready for was no cycle at all after the pill.
I am now up to day 116 of this cycle! It has been a loooong 4 months. I started acupuncture and chinese herbal medicine 4 weeks ago after hearing good things. I saw my GP last week and she is running some blood tests for AMH and hormone levels. Everything else so far has been normal. I had regular cycles before the pill, thyroid has come back as normal, and I am in a healthy weight range. I started going crazy waiting about 2 months ago, and started monitoring my BBT to improve my sense of control. 6 days ago I had my first temperature shift, up from my baseline of 36.3-3 to 36.8-9.
I'm hoping this means I ovulated. And I'm hoping that (if I'm not pregnant off this eggy), my next cycle might be a little shorter!! Give my husband is only home 5 days a fortnight, if my cycles don't level out this could be a longer journey that I hoped!!
