So it seems that I have not O'd at all since I have been off bc pill (off in February 2011). The only way that I even get my "period" is after a withdrawal from Prometrium taken the 1st day of the month until the 12th. So my OB said we will try clomid next month. I hope that jump starts O!
Anyone else have this problem?
I already have a 4 year old and a 6 year old. And they only took about 2-3 months to conceive!

I had the same issue! After my first two I went on the pill. When I came off the pill I was no longer ovulating. My DR said it could take up to a year for my system to stat back up. A year came and went....nothing. My Dr said that about 10% of women will never ovulate again on thier own with out help after coming off the pill. I was about to move so I waited until we got all moved and settled then I went to my new dr. He was going to start me on Provera to kick start my period (since I had not had one for 2 years) followed by 50mg of Clomid. To start me on the Provera a pregnancy test was required. The pregnancy test came back positive. Apparently I actually ovulated on my own and by pure luck we concieved. I found out I was pregnant at 9 weeks into the pregnancy. Sure enough had a healthy baby boy!!

So it happens and there is hope!

Thank you, Robin! That is great news to hear!! What a blessing! It's nice to hear from someone who understands and has been through not having O for soooo long.
I started spotting yesterday(I'm currently taking prometrium) and my OB said that whenever I saw ANY blood no matter how much or how little to count that as CD1 and start taking my clomid on CD3-7. I took a test on Friday and it was BFN. So, tomorrow will be my first day of clomid. I am hoping that will help my whole no O situation!

Hey there you actually posted on my thread on the TTC board. I thought that since I just found out that I'm not ovulating I might pop in over here.

I have an 11 year old boy. I was on BC from his infancy to probably about 2 years ago. I would have thought that by now there wouldn't be any issues. I just found out yesterday that I am not ovulating.

Anyway. I really hope that the clomid does the trick for you this cycle. I think that I am going to wait until my next cycle to try my first round of Clomid. Maybe we can be Clomid cycle buddies.

Don't give up just because they say you're not ovulating!!! My husband and I left things "to chance" for about two years....then we tried for two years. THEN we REALLY tried for two more years. We were finally frustrated enough to look into seeing a fertility specialist several months ago. They did blood draws for everything under the sun and said that everything was perfect healthwise - but I wasn't ovulating. They gave me the option to start Chlomid but also suggested a semen analysis to make sure everything was ok on hubby's side. Our insurance covers my fertility issues, but not his, so we were thinking over the cost for a couple of weeks. Wouldn't you know that the next month I found out I was pregnant!! It was almost embarassing to tell the fertility specialist!

Well, I have never really used hormonal birth control. My cycles (allegedly) have always been off and irregular according to my gyns, because I only had a bleeding about every two months. I had no idea about FAM/NFP at that time, and around 2007 my gyn said I should try the NuvaRing to make my cycles become regular (what a load of BS...).
Anyways, I used it for a few months, felt really bad, became depressed and finally ditched it. After that I stumbled across FAM and began charting. Even though I had only used hormonal birth control for a few months my first cycle lasted for 157 days before I finally ovulated. I found out my cycles are regular, but always around 38 days in length.
I read that women who used hormonal birth control for years can take up to one year before starting to ovulate again since they practically did not ovulate for years while taking the pill and the like, so you might still come around.

Also, what I have noticed is that my cycles are very influenced by stress. The more stress I have the more likely I am to have an anovulatory cycle. And for all of you who are really, really hoping to get pregnant, I guess that is the worst stress you can put yourself through. Even though your body might be perfectly healthy and capable of ovulating it might be the stress and pressure you are putting yourself under that actually keeps you from ovulating. I know this sounds stupid, but maybe the more and harder you try the more difficult it gets. Maybe you should simply allow you and your DH to relax, maybe (if you have the time) take a little vacation and (try) to forget about wanting to get pregnant.
I mean, after a while even intercourse becomes some sort of obligation, a too, and one is not really enjoying it anymore because one is just doing it with the purpose to get pregnant. nlove_3000 shifted her personal focus on her husband and then... well, she got pregnant.

Maybe letting go and relaxing really is the best solution to that.
