  • About two weeks, more or less. Though it may be a couple of months before your cycle is fully reasserted.

    Pick up a copy of "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" by Toni Wechsler.

  • A woman's cycle is about 28 days long, beginning with the first day of hermenstrual period. Somewhere around the fourteenth day of a normal cycle, give or take, she ovulates. Some women have a white, stringy discharge around ovulation. If you want a more accurate prediction, get an ovulation test, which checks your first morning urine for a hormone present around ovulation time. You only have about a 36-hour window when you are most fertile. But be aware that just coming off the patch, your hormones may be out of balance, making conception difficult for a few months.

  • There is an app for that.
    Your GYN is also a good source.
