Calculate CD1 after stopping the combined pill. Is it:

1) the day you take the last pill
2) the day after the last pill
3) the first day of withdrawal bleed

Based on the above, I could now either be CD 26, 25 or 22.

I would count it the first day of your withdrawl bleed as your first day is usually the day your period arrives. dont worry if you then go on to have a longer than usual cycle. my first proper non pill cycle was 42 days but iv seen ladies on here talk about even longer ones. it just depends how long it will take your body to get used to its own hormones.

I agree, probably first day of withdrawal bleed, but it could take a while for it to settle down into a regular cycle. You should get an app to start tracking your cycle

Thanks well I came on this morning on, based on CD1 birth withdrawal bleed, is CD24.

thats good it came so quickly! it might be longer for your first natural cycle though but FX it regulates itself quickly. Good luck smile
