I just realized this board was here, so I'm jumping in. Hope it's okay. This is long and I have several questions. Sorry.
We are trying for #2. I got off bcp about a month ago. I had a period that began on July 1(after finishing June's pack of pills). We started trying after that(knowing the slim possibility), but hey, we like trying.
I was cramping horribly
right after I stopped my pills. It was awful. Also, my boobs were soooooo sore. For a minute, I did think I was pg. Then, on July 24, I had ANOTHER period!
I have always been on a 28 day cycle, even when I wasn't on the pill. So, why now would I have TWO freakin' periods in July, which makes it a 24 day cycle??? This just didn't happen last time when we tried for dd. So, I'm just confused.
I bought an ovulation test today. I am confused because I have to compare my last mp to see what cycle I'm on. Well, if I go by the last two periods I had in July, then I'm a 24 day cycle. But if I go by what I've always been, I'm a 28.
I took the first test a while ago and it was negative for ovulation. So, does that mean I should go with the 28 day cycle?
I feel so confused this time.
I do not remember having to do all of this with dd. Can anyone help???
