and getting frustrated. I went of BCP in April, so I know it's not unusual to have varying cycle lengths. But my first two cycles off the pill were 25 and 28 days, with O on days 12 and 14. This is my third cycle and I'm on CD 21 with no O in sight. I thought maybe my weight loss could be a factor but I am losing a consistent amount of weight each month (10-12 pounds) and if anything I thought that would help regulate my cycles.
No point for this post really. I guess I'm just a little disappointed because I had hoped that maybe for the first time ever things might go like clockwork. I just hope this cycle doesn't end up being 50 days or anovulatory or something weird like that.

I know that when I got off hormonal BC my cycles were good for a couple of months then went wacky and got regulated again. I know you don't want to hear it, but that was my experience. I hope that you O soon.
In working with post-BCP clients, that sort of pattern is something I see all the time! A few normal-ish cycles, and then things get wacky for awhile before settling down again. I know that's probably not what you want to hear. But even with long cycles, there are usually a lot of infertile days. It just takes 3 cycles to determine your Basic Infertile Pattern, then you don't have to focus only on ovulation...you can focus instead on what's happening. Your body switches back and forth from infertility to potential fertility. Once you have your BIP identified, you can use those times of infertility whenever they happen.
