So I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm reading lots of threads and there are lots of abbreviations and also tracking.of days etc. I have no idea what I'm.doing lol.

I'm booking Monday to remove implant. And when I used to have periods I just remember wishing they'd hurry up and go lol.

So what will I exactly need to do? What do I track and write down? Should I test?

We're hoping to start trying next year but I'd like to know what I.should do when I'm off the implant before trying and then when I am trying.

Really I just thought you had lots of sex and it would probably happen. How naive of me lol!!

Lots of sex should do it. To start with I'd just keep track of when you have periods so you can get an idea of your usual cycle length. If lots of sex hasn't worked after a few months then maybe I'd think about ovulation predictor kits etc. There's no need to over complicate it for most people.

Hi, i think what would be best to do is download an app on your phone to record when your period starts and finishes, Ovia and glow are good fertility trackers, also start paying attention to what your body is doing eg your cervial mucus how it changes over the month, you may be dry just after your period and then it changes to wet and when you get like egg white cervical mucas that is when you can tell you are fertile, both wet and egg white consitcency is fertile, can also google what the different types are, try not to over whelm yourself, just have lots of sex and enjoy when trying, also before you start trying start taking folic acid as that is crucial for when you do fall pregnant, good luck and hope this helps

I use the Ovia app too after implant removal.

The nurse told me that you can fall pregnant within days of having it removed and to take a PG test if there was no AF after six weeks.

Best of luck flowers

TVlover I was just the same as you! My husband and I were both convinced I'd get pregnant the fist time we had unprotected sex, even though - as I now know - it was still early in my cycle so very unlikely.

I found it very useful to note down everything I was experiencing - stomach ache, unusual moods, sore boobs, taste, literally everything, including marking each day we had sex. In my second month I noticed I was going through exactly the same pattern, so it helps predict periods too.

A lot of people can't resist testing early, but you tend to get confusing results so it's best to wait until after your period is due, and possibly a couple of days after that, especially as your cycles take longer to settle down.

There is a list of abbreviations in the 'Getting Started' section.

Have fun trying! x
