Ok, so I am trying to figure out how would be the best way to track Ovulation after being on BC for the past 16 months. Is it normal to what you would have done or does it track differently? We are TTC right now, but all the OPK have been negative. So confused.

From "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" (FAM) by Toni Weschler, 10th anniversary edition 2006, page 108-109

The Pill can cause any of the following disruption for up to several months after discontinuing:
false high temperatures
temps that seem out of sync with cervical fluid
absence of typical ovulatory cervical fluid
continuous seemingly fertile watery of milky cervical fluid
short luteal phase
irregular preovulatory bleeding and spotting in the luteal phase
poor menstrual flow following ovulation

"Those who tend to take longer to clear the drug from their systems, and therefore take several months to resume cycling after hormones, are often young or thin... In addition, you should be aware that once women do resume natural cycling, they may experience short luteal phases for the first few months...reflected in high temperatures of fewer than 10 days after the thermal shift."

It is possible that you may not ovulate, and that valid ovulation will be hard to accurately detect, for several months.

My first month of fertility charting began over a year ago because we were still actually preventing, but I was having major health problems on the Pill (bleeding 28 days straight). We were told it was unlikely I could get pregnant for a while because of those problems. That first month, I guess we should have used extra protection the entire time, because I got pregnant right away. I carried for 14 weeks. It is considered likely that the placenta was unable to attach fully to the uterine wall because I had got pregnant right away after such problems with the Pill. I hope no other woman goes through what I did last year.

You should be aware that, although my experience was unique, even with a healthy woman the Pill causes changes and abnormalities to the uterus, causing the body to believe itself pregnant, and after stopping use of the Pill the body often takes as long to recover (hormonally and with uterine lining) as it would after a pregnancy and delivery sans nursing. It is highly advised, therefore, to allow your body several cycles to recover and resume normal operations before conceiving.
I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,
neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of GOD
that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:38, the Bible
