Just wondering if any ladies who came off the pill and our now TTC had issues getting back on their cycles? I was hoping AF would either show or I'd get a BFP but either happened so I'm thinking my cycles are going to be off now. I have no idea about all this being off the pill and TTC stuff bc we weren't trying last time. Will I ovulate or should I start checking with OPKs? I guess I'm just looking for advice for anyone that has TTC after being on the pill & cycles regulating. TIA!

I came off the pill 2 months before I wanted to start TTC so that I could regulate. I wanted to know when I was ovulating. After 2 cycles of tracking I used OPKs My cycles were about 30 days rather than the 28 they were on the pill

yeah i should have figured I would be out of whack for a couple months. Thanks! I will probably keep track and do OPK's. I've never done OPK's before - when do you test if ur cycles aren't regular?

I think there are 5 or 7 in a pack?? It says what days to start testing and I think it's day 10.
