My husband and i wanted to start trying so in November I stopped taking my BC. the first month i had my period by the 4th week the next month I started by the 5th week and this month I started after 6 wks. I haven't had any luck getting pregnant yet. Has anyone else dealt with this and what works... i want to get pregnant so bad any advice is welcomed.
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.
