Did you ovulate the cycle after going off BCP?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I just went off BCP (Ortho-Tricycline Low) a week and half ago (last pill was on Saturday 9/13/13 and I started doing OPK (Ovulation Predictor Kit) test sticks on day 4 of period (pill induced) just to be sure I didn't miss the OV if I wasn't doing the tests that early (you don't know WHEN your body is going to get back on track to it's natural state and start ovulating again) but so far all 6 tests have been negative. I'm not expecting the + till next week most likely but....I just hope that it does happen this month so that November can be our first official TTC month.

 

If you were on birth control pills....how long did it take for you to begin ovulating again? Did you do OPKs?

Never tried OPKs but I always ovulated within a few weeks of going off the pill. I did notice the CP/CM signs and either concieved or got AF that month.

As far as I know, it could be days or weeks. Searching google, some people have to wait a few months before they ovulate for the first time. As long as you're DTD once every 2-3 days, you're covered for whenever you ovulate. If that sounds like too much, just listen to your body and do it when you feel like it. Checking cervical mucus is also quick and free. Stretchy and clear is fertile, it's like someone cracked an egg in your hand when you find it. I know those strips will get expensive if you need a few dozen!

I actually got a + OPK test stick this first cycle off the pill and was surprised and shocked. I'm currently having my period now...so...I guess next month will be our official TTC cycle as this month we were more trying NOT to.
