    Default Irregular cycles - advice please

    hi everyone,

    My husband and I have been TTC for a number of months. I came off my birth control at the beginning of May. Before I went on BC, I had regular cycles however have been on it for 7 years without a break. Since coming off, my cycles have been all over the place. I didn't get a period for 3 months. Then my next cycle was 49 days and I don't think I ovulated. My most recent cycle was 33 days and I think I did ovulate however not until day 27, which means my luteal phase was only 6 days.

    I just don't know how long it should take for my cycle to regulate? It seems like it should only take a couple of months, however it's almost been 6 months and I am still having problems. Does anyone have any advice or similar stories? Should I go see my dr or wait a little longer? I'm trying to be patient but just feeling frustrated!

    Thanks in advance!

    Your gp is probably going to tell you to give it 12 months of trying before they do anything. It can just take some people a bit longer to regulate after coming off the pill.

    I personally didn't have the patience to wait for my cycle to regulate (though I was waiting after dd1 was born, though I'm sure you don't mind our situations are a little different), so I started taking b6 to lengthen my luteal phase, and Vitex to help me ovulate earlier. Pregnant first cycle!!!! She's now 17 months.

    I know other ladies on here have gotten acupuncture, seen naturopaths and done Chinese herbal medicine.

    I googled natural fertility options like a crazy woman. I was quite obsessed, but I have my two dds now, and I believe it was all worth it.

    Hi KLD89, wow reading your post sounds like exactly what happened to me!! It took 3 months to get my period after coming off birth control and even after that my period was out of whack. Don't wait! Go and see a naturopath who will put you on some yucky tasting herbs to drink but i wish I hadn't waited! within a few months my periods were back to 28 days with a normal flow!

    Where abouts do you live? I can recommend someone amazing if you are in Sydney! PM me xo
