    Welcome to the community!

    It can take some women several months to get back to a regular cycle after stopping BC. I would recommend charting your cycles. There are books and web sites like Fertility Friend that you can use. One of the ladies on here is using something called the Billings Method. Whatever you choose, it will help you to figure out when you're ovulating.

    Good luck and baby dust!!
