I used to NEVER know my cycle. I never had the tell tale CM, O pains, I could usually tell the day I was going to get my period but never even really had PMS.

Since going off the pill this time around, I FELT myself ovulate, tons of EWCM - so I think I'm on the road to knowing it a bit better LOL!

I can tell the signs of when AF is coming, I couldn't when I had my IUD in, I never knew when it was coming, but since it's been out I'm back to normal. I can't tell when I Ovulate though.

Not at all.. I've never had a normal cycle. I just got my IUD out a few weeks ago and got my 1st AF last week. I am charting on a phone app now so that helps. It keeps all the info for me! I'm hoping my next AF is right on time and I can finally have a normal cycle.

I am clueless... Since I am on the IUD my cycle is like a sometimes I wonder if it even exists. When we start TTC I may chart depending on the plan the dr has. (I will be posting more about that in my blog as we figure things out)

I know my cycle pretty well PERFECTLY. Its always so normal and I always have strong ovulation pains and watery CM before ovulating. I've been charting for some time too!

I only knew when I was going to get my period, but I had no interest in learning about ovulation etc. When we decided to try for #1, we concieved right away so I never had to learn. And now, I'm breastfeeding and I've only have one AF so far. So I don't know the "new normal" quite yet.

I've only had two cycles back so far, and they seemed consistent to how mine used to be. Normally around 31 days. I haven't really paid much attention to ovulation signs though as I'm not trying to get pregnant. My sex drive is better though!

Before #1, very consistent, every 30 days like clockwork. I'm currently bf and don't have af, so no idea what the new normal will be either. Hoping I get it back just in time to ttc!

Like...not at all right now! lol

I used to know it like clockwork, I could feel ovulation and got all the CM signs...

but now that's not the case. I still haven't had my first post-partum period yet. I've been carrying pads around for months, just in case.

I just got my first AF since giving birth and I'm on the pill. It will be pretty easy to keep track of.

Mine is every 30-31 days. Every now and then I'll have a super long 45ish day cycle. I'm having one of those right now. I've taken about 10 preggo tests but they're all neg. Just waiting for AF, she is 5 days late right now.
