First PP cycle (AF)
24
Wed, 07-13-2011 - 11:37pm

I'm on day 39 of my first PP cycle and no sign of AF. I had my annual exam with my MW on Monday, they tested my urine and said I was not PG, but to test again in a week just to be sure.

I got my first PP AF on June 5th, had a light period and major cramping two weeks later, then had spotting two weeks after that. According to FF, my longest cycle (when I charted back in 2009) was 40 days. I've always had very regular, predictable cycles so I hope that nothing is majorly wrong with me and it's just my hormones trying to figure out what to do since I'm still BFing as well.

I finished up my last pack of the minipill about two weeks ago and we are doing FAM w/spermicide. Have only DTD once since I got AF last month, although I know it is possible to get PG on that one shot, but I'm still pretty sure that I'm not PG.

How was your first PP cycle? Was it longer or shorter than your pre-pgcy cycles?

Kate, it might not be REAL AF yet.

Hi Adrienne,

AF ended up showing after CD 52 so I'm on to my 2nd PP cycle. I'm not temping because I still get up in the middle of the night (currently due to our cat who has decided not to STTN anymore, lol) so I'm just watching my CM.

Adrienne - I posted about AF in my mini pill thread... check there for details. I did get withdrawal bleeding when I first started the mini pill, but that was just spotting for a few days.
