  • Dont worry too much about it. Give it a month or two and then you should start ovulating on schedule again. Once you have your monthly its also easier to know. You count 14 days from the first day of your period and that should be the first day you ovulate. Hope that helps.

  • when you have been on b/c it takes a while for your hormones to return to normal they stay in your system for a while. You havnt had it out very long so just be patient and stop trying so hard. you;ll get pregnant as soon as you stop stressing over it. let your body get back into a ruitine you cant expect to get pregnant just a month after taking out your b/c

  • It can take a while for your cycle to kick back into gear. I think you are jumping the gun here. Once you have your first period you'll be able to start tracking your cycle to figure out your most fertile times. Until that happens, who knows... it could be today, it could be a month from now. And in the meantime you'll be spending a fortune on ovulation predictor kits.

    Have you ever heard of tracking your basal body temperature and your vaginal secretions to determine your fertile times? You might like that method. And other than purchasing a thermometer when you first start, it's free. I always know when I'm fertile, and I've never used one of those kits.

  • getting pregnant in general can be complicated obviously because youre only fertile for a shot period of time during the month. theres this method called "natural family planning". it can be used for natural birth control, and for an aid for you to know your most fertile days. its really interesting. friends of my family use this method and they have six kids because they wanted them and used this method. i hope im not sounding like an infomercial lol. i just think its extremelu interesting. heres a link to a site that tells you all about it, and if you google it there are a ton more! good luck!!!

  • For an average woman with no problems it takes an average of 6 months to get pg. It can take up to 18 months to get back to normal after bc. You defintly wait 3 months before starting to try to make sure the hormones and everything is back to normal levels. You can start doing you basil body temperatures. You can go to you can also get the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility. It is amazing!! Temping tells you when you o and if you use feritlityfriend you can keep track when you o and when you have sex and all of the fertile signs and symptoms. good luck
