I'm confused! I started what I thought was CD 1 back on the 23rd of October (Thursday)- then I accidentally took my pill on Sun/Mon-Totally not thinking that we weren't going to take them anymore!! I immediately stopped taking them! So, I only took the first two pills of the pack. Well everything was fine until today! I started bleeding -heavily! Is this CD 1 now?? I think I completely screwed up my body! I'm not sure what to think! My husband is really ready to start our family (so am I) but now I'm not sure where I am at in my cycle?? I do have OPK's should I use those?? Any help would be greatly Appreciated!!!!
It's probably BCP withdrawal. I used to get it if I missed even just 1 pill from my pack. I'm not too sure how it'd be recommended to record (CD? or CD1), perhaps someone else can offer advice on that?
I'd be tempted to mark down as CD1 and start fresh again. If you monitor your CM carefully, it's often more reliable than temping (if you are temping).
Good luck! If it were me, I'd keep my Oct date as day one and record these new days of bleeding as just spotting, even if it were more. There hasn't been enough time to grow a proper lining anyway. But if it delays ovlutation, your luteal phase should still be the same length.
Your first cycle is always a learning experience, so go slow! Are you temping yet? I've found it to be very helpful. I was afraid that temping would make me too obsessed with charting, but it isn't that way. It's just like recording any data, such as keeping track of CM or CP.
