Irregular cycles
Sun, 08-29-2010 - 10:37pm


I'm mostly a lurker here because we aren't actually TTC just yet--we're planning to start in January. But I'm trying to get used to charting & establish some baseline, but I'm so confused!

I've only had two cycles since having DS. The last one was pretty normal for me--33 days long, but with a very short (6 day) LP and temps bouncing all over the place. So annoying, but not completely out of the norm.

But this time, I'm already on day 34 with NO sign of O yet. Temps are all over the place, CP is all over the place and I've only had dry CF. I have no idea what's going on and I'm so frustrated!

I'm sorry for the long post & thanks if you've gotten this far. I guess I just want to know if this kind of irregularity is normal & whether it'll sort itself out in the next few months. Is it possible to get AF back & then have it go away again???

Hello and welcome :) Your little guy has such a cute sweet face !

As for your cycles, yes it is completely normal for your cycles to be a little bit wacky when you first get AF back. I had super long cycles at first - late O, short LP etc. It took about 5 or so for them to normalize for me.

You might want to try taking a vitamin B complex, as well as a calcium/magnesium supplement to help level things out. For your CM, try Evening Primrose Oil from AF to O didn't work for me but seems to help lots of other ladies out!

It's great that you are temping - maybe buy some cheap online OPK's so you can join us in our obsessing POAS around here - it is pretty darn awesome when you catch the surge and see those double lines that could lead to the double lines we all want to see!
