Hi - another newbie here.

So it's like this...

I had my Mirena IUD removed after 4 years on 3/2/2009.
I was on the pill from age 14 until the IUD (that I got at age 26) so if I was naturally irregular, I've never known, and I didn't have my period with the IUD.

I had a period March 10th, started charting on April 13th, and FF and the iVillage fertility planner say that I ovulated on day 52 (finally).

So technically this is still my first cycle...72 days in. If everything is right, I am 20 dpo, but no +HPT yet. Anyone have any wisdom in this situation?


Pregnant? Crazy-long LP? Messed up?

I just wanted to get some other thoughts on this. I have a lot of symptoms that could go either way, and I don't want to waste my doc's or my own time quite yet if it isn't necessary.

I suspect that your body is still trying to figure out what to do now that no hormones are artificially controlling your cycle.
