Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Just a wee thread to introduce myself. I was a hitched user under a different name back in 2009/2010 when planning our wedding. I'm now 27 and married to my lovely husband since 2010. After 9 years on the pill I came off it in December and we were initially using other methods of contraception until march, when we started not trying but not preventing. Then have been actively trying since May. However, since coming off the pill I have only had two cycles- one 45 days and one 115 days! Worrying a bit that I'm not ovulating but hopefully things will sort themselves out in good time.
Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Hiya. There are few on here who had/have long cycles - I'm sure they will be able to help/sympathise.

Hey mac girl. I'm a long cycle lady too! Since coming off pill in November 2012 ive had three cycles (40 days, 84 days & 50 days). Did you have irregular cycles before you went on the pill?

Hello figaro and raincloud, thanks for the welcomes!
Purplestar- it's nice to speak to someone in a similar boat. In all honesty, I struggle to remember what my periods were like before the pill! I started at 14, then had a few periods before they stopped for about a year (I think due to eating issues). So I went to a homeopath who gave me something which totally kickstarted my cycle and I think they were reasonably regular, although very long, until I went on the pill at 17. Have you tried opk's? I've read that they are not always very effective with an irregular cycle.

Hi Mac Girl - I got married in April 2010 and planned my wedding on Hitched - do I know you or do you remember me?
Anyways, welcome to MD TTC. I really hope your cycles settle down soon and you have a short journey in this crazy world!!!

Hi gillsy, yeah I definitely remember you! Not sure if you'll remember me as I wasn't a very regular poster. I was one of the Glasgow hitchers though!
How are you anyway? I see your ttc journey hasn't been smooth sailing, I hope you're doing ok!

I do remember you. Lovely to 'see' you again. I'm from Ayrshire so I'm not far from you.
Yeah, my journey hasn't been smooth. Came off BC in September, got a BFP in January and had a missed mc in March. I'm doing ok now though, thanks for asking xx

Hey Mac... I've been temping for the last two cycles and I've just started (a week ago) doing opk's. At the moment I'm just finding them frustrating, I'm cd25 so far this cycle and no sign of ovulation happening yet.
