Dear AF, where the hell are you?

Ok so I came off the pill in December after 10 years....Standard withdrawal bleed.

Then I had a 29 day cycle, a 31 day cycle and a 30 day cycle.....

I am currently on DAY 41 of this next cycle and no sign of AF.

Thought I was pretty back straight back to normal as I had 3 normal-ish cycles but this one is just ridiculous!

Anyone else had this after coming off the pill? Can you tell me your experiences of coming off the pill and make me feel better?!!

And no.. Defo not pregnant (I wish I was but defo not this month!)

How can you be sure not PG?

Take a test? Or, found just going to buy one can make AF magically appear!

Done tests! wink

And also don't think we dtd anywhere near my fertile time... Not even sure if I even had a fertile time this month actually!

Last month I definitely ovulated... Positive OPK, EWCM and definite bbt rise....

This month my bbt has been all over the place... Can't see much of a temp shift at all.

Fertility friend thinks I MAY have ovulated around cd31 (dotted crosshair line on my graph not a definite one) and we didn't dtd at all around that time (I was working weird shifts).

If I did ovulate then, that would explain why AF hasn't come yet but why such a long cycle this month?!

The female body is a strange thing!

I don't know if you remember from the March bus that I had a 65 day cycle then bfp ? Well my body thought it would be fun to throw 2 eggs out at once and now i'm having twins !!

Don't give up hope yet !

Hi Gilly, my cycles were all over the place when I came off the pill in 2011, I've added a photo of the records from my app to my profile to give you an idea/reassure you that it's OK!!

gillywillywoo Sun 05-May-13 07:55:16

Ahhhh thus reassuring thank you becca!!!smile
Don't think I can see that on the phone app but I will look on my computer today! Thank you! Xx

gillywillywoo Sun 05-May-13 08:02:36

Actually becca I just tried on the desktop site and I can't! Are you sure your profile is public?x

hey gilly, don't give up just yet. mine turned up yesterday after 41 days. Give it another week or two and then maybe go to the doctors. grin

gillywillywoo Sun 05-May-13 08:33:26

Thanks mrs cookie... Feeling better now especially as over the last week my temps seem to be consistently higher so I think I probably did ovulate just really really late. I'll give it a week or so.
Booked in for a smear on the 15th... Knowing my luck AF will arrive then! grin

mrscookie78 Sun 05-May-13 09:48:15

failing that wear white jeans or go swimming grin grin .
I know its hard waiting, yes sometimes we do ovulate very late. its all linked to our hormones. I did my temp this am, im 36.1. im sure I won't remember again for days smile

Beccadugs Sun 05-May-13 11:25:51

Sorry Gilly, I'm public now... See if that works!!

gillywillywoo Sun 05-May-13 20:19:22
