Hi ladies. Hope you’re all well.

Just after some advice please. I’m Cycle 2 of TTC after coming off the pill in June. I’m currently cd41 after having a very slight period beginning of August cd32. I don’t know how long my cycles are as obviously haven’t gone back to ‘normal’ yet since coming off the pill.

I’ve tested a few times and got BFN. Past 4-5 days I’ve had cramps as if af is about to arrive but never has, been feeling Nauseous and had stitch type pains down my left side. I feel like I’m going crazy and imagining symptoms but still getting BFN. Any advice please ladies. Feel like I’m going mad!

Especially when coming off the pill, your cycles can be all over. You may not have ovulated this cycle (which is totally normal!) Or you may have ovulated late (also totally normal!), Unless you know when you ovulate through temping or OPKs you don't know when you're truly "late".
The advice the doctor gave me when I had a random long cycle was to test once a week until either BFP or AF arrived. It's annoying having to wait but there's not much else that can be done

This stage when TTC can feel so weird. I was excited to see how my body worked without the pill but was also keen on TTC so was on a roller coaster of emotions.
My longest cycle was 35 days when DH and I first started TTC so it can take time for your body to adjust.
I'd definitely try using OPKs to track your ovulation dates...I got a pack of 50 ovulation tests and 10 pregnancy tests from ebay for like £8 or something. They don't have to be expensive. Test roughly 2 weeks after your next period for a few days to find out if you're ovulating. Some women do temping too but I never did that.

It was after 4 months TTC and 2nd month of using OPKs that I got pregnant...currently 10 weeks now.

Thank you I’m going to use opks on my next cycle smile
