Im just wondering from the girls who have irregular periods... My first cycle off the pill was 60 days (off the pill since jan) and now I calculated 28 days from my last period which works out I am now 2 days over due for AF. I very much doubt that I am actually "overdue" being that my last period was 60 days but im just confused as to how would I calculate it if I have no idea what my cycle is? do you just calculated from 28 day and anything after that is classed as "overdue"
I very much doubt I am pregnant as I dont think i ovulated at all. I have no mucus or anything
Its all so very disappointing I really never thought it was going to be this hard and frustrating.

I don't have an answer for you but I can certainly relate to you. All my life my periods have been somewhat krazy. I stopped the pill about 4 weeks ago....just before stopping the pack i had a period...then 4 days after stopping the pill i got it again. Last time i had a break from the pill which was about 4 years ago....i did't get my period for a few months after. From what I understand...there is no "normal" if you get me.
Do you remember what your cycles were like prior to starting the pill??

Gosh.. i really am unsure what they were like. Its been a good 10 years ago since before the pill. I dont think they were spot on every 28 days but never as long as 60.

Hi Wilhew, you may just need a good 6 months off the pill before you return to a normal cycle (and sometimes longer). To try to catch the egg in the mean time you might want to look at charting your BBT and using OPKs.
Since coming off the pill I have had better/more regular cycles then before I started the pill!! BUT i am having an odd cycle this month - didn't ovulate till day 22! Because I am temping and doing OPKs I have known what was going on and have DTD at the right time.
We've got a lovely thread of ladies in the BBT thread, so you're welcome to join us if you're interested.
Also it was quite a few months after being off the pill before I saw any EWCM - the pill makes the cervical crypts making this type of CM shrink (disclaimer - in most people) & they take a little while to recover. As it is I still don't trust following CM - I got very little this month!

Yes I would like to join the where do I find the thread?
I started to do my temp but i never really knew what I was looking for. its seems to dip abit up and down and I was so confused with it all and as I had no CM I just stopped doing it. When do you think its a good time to start, is it ok to start it now being 31 days since finishing my last period or would you wait to do it when my period starts?
Thanks to everyone for the replies!

We're up in the stickies
yep, it would be fine to start temping now, at the very least for the practise. *might* be able to see if you've O'd or not....

Hi Chunky Monkey,
I can totally relate. I have been off the pill for 5 years, trying to get pregnant for 2 yrs, in IVF for 15 months. My periods, whilst not on IVF drugs, are anywhere from 40-45 days, except this time round - it's day 52 and very little action down stairs!!
