my name is Jennifer 23
DH is Brett 24 in november
we have a 4 month old daughter, morgan who was conceived with clomid.
i have suspected PCOS, my doctor calls it "cystic ovaries" - he explained it that my body tries to ovulate several times in a month causing small fluid filled sacs on my ovaries. this is what causes my cycles to be so long and unpredictable.
i have regulated my cycles with bcp and recently (since the birth of morgan) have been unable to take BCP, it makes me sick, i get angry all the time and i am just so over putting hormones in my body.
i recently thought i would test out the patch (which i am on now) and DH and i have decided that we want to rathe do nfp. no more fake hormones.
the only problem is my irregular cycles.
i will be trying vitex to see if it regulates and i will be charting and temping. I hope that we dont make a mistake but we would not have a problem if we did.
if you have any advice for me that would be great!
Welcome! I have PCOS too, I totally understand the frustration of irregular cycles. But fortunately, modern NFP doesn't require regular cycles at all. With the old Rhythm/Calender methods it was necessary to have regular cycles. With proper training, you can apply modern NFP no matter what your cycles are like. Take a moment to read through the FAQ and Resource stickies. The easiest way to learn when you have complicated cycles is to take a class together.
