Welcome, km! I went off BCP in November, and DH and I are finally putting serious effort into TTC.
Going off the pill was so scary for me -- I felt like I'd been on it so long that I worried I wouldn't know what to do when I started! I know that sounds completely ridiculous, but I was used to having perfectly regulated cycles and knew exactly which day of the week... almost down to the hour... that I would start.
And you know what??? I made it! I remembered how to tell that AF was about to come and when to start carrying my "bag of supplies" around with me. Yeah, the cramping was awful. The mood swings this month are insane. But I trust that my body will figure things out.
I've heard it can take anywhere from 3 months to a year for your body to regulate. So try to be patient.
Here is the best advice I've received this week: 1)Start on prenatal vitamins, 2)start charting, 3)do what feels right and is easy for you and DH, and 4) don't stress about doing it wrong.
Good luck! Hope AF comes soon and is nice to you while she's here!!
