Here's my story:
I went on BCP due to a series of cysts that formed and then subsequently burst, all on my right ovary. My gyne advised me to start on BCP to prevent this from happening, and put me on a 42 day cycle - 42 days on BCP, 3 days off (so 3 day periods every 42 days.. it was sweet.)
Now I met with my gyne mid-March to review a recent ultrasound, and she confirmed that the cyst had shrunk significantly, and I asked if we could start TTCing, and she said yes!
So that night before bed I laid out the pack of BCP and a pack of prenatal vitamins my gyne had given me and asked DH which I should take, and we both agreed to take the prenatal vitamins.
I stopped taking BCP mid-to-late March, and I got a period on April 4 that lasted for 4 days.
I then got a period on April 19 that was much more regular, and I assumed was me "going back to normal" with my periods.. next period was May 18. Through these two cycles I haven't noticed much EWCM (I used to get A LOT when I was on BCP.. why is that??)
Wondering for those ladies out there in a somewhat similar situation how long after you went off BCP did your fertility cycles return to normal and did you conceive? Do you think that being on a 42 day cycle for almost a year will negatively affect me and cause me to take longer to go back to a normal cycle?
