edited May 2021 in Trying to Get Pregnant
Hello, im new here and my name is Kate. This is my 3rd month TTC so also the 3rd month coming off the birth control pill. This cycle has been an anovulatory cycle unfortunately and ive missed my period by 11 days now. Problem is i dont know when to start counting my next cycle from day 1 since i never got a bleed of any sort. Idk where the anovulatory cycle would have ended and the next cycle began? Lol i have so many questions about this. If this cycle is normal, i should be starting.my fertile window again this week but i just dont want to be wasting these expensive ovulation sticks if its not back to normal yet. Anybody else have only one random anovulatory cycle, missed a period and found out when they became fertile again??

    Hey @tweaky123 Welcome to the group. If you haven’t already, please introduce yourself in the Newbie Intros weekly thread. This board is super organized so we don’t normally do one-off individual posts like this. You may want to put this in the Chart Stalk/Questions thread here: https://forums.thebump.com/discussion/12760186/chart-stalk-and-questions-may-2021#latest

    My understanding is that an anovulatory cycle goes until you get your next bleed. But if you think you’re about to hit FW go ahead and use those OPKs. Then order cheapies from Amazon. Pregmate and Wondfo brands are super accurate and cost like $15 for 100 strips or something insane like that.

    Seriously - this is a great place; you just need to follow what the rules are.  Like others said, the place to start is the Newbies introduction thread and go from there.  

    Best of luck with your journey.  If you ever want to participate more, just hope over to that newbie introduction thread and join in.

    You were nice - it’s not that hard to read. Some people just get defensive when you correct them. That’s an internal issue

    @BusinessWife lol it's just a very weird art style! Took me a moment to realize the gif was dogs hugging.

    I think we must have been posting at the same time, @keikilove because there were none yet either when I hit reply.   Yours obviously went first, and then I got the QFP immediately after.  I didn't refresh my page before typing my full response, so once that posted, I scrolled back and saw yours and was like, oh man, she was so nice! Lol. I guess I was in no mood.  But we see how quickly that flipped so.

    @BusinessWife Oh, I thought your comment was great. Equal parts explanatory and “look, chick, this is how the board works” sass. Then her reply warranted you taking the gloves off.🤣

    @pajamstagrams Right?! What did YH think of it? I also showed MH the thread later and he laughed so hard at all the gifs. He said “Y’all are brutal!” 😆

    @keikilove thank for the gif play-by-play. 👏
    @BusinessWife +1 thank you for getting her replies in QFPs. 
    @fantasyflyte I’ve not known you to get involved in these, but BRAVO. Well said!
    @stormageddon-darklordofall I too have a bit  of FOMO over this thread. Alas, as you said, it was beeeaaauuuutifully handled by the others.

    Warnings seem to last FOREVER... but as @jackie_dunny says, BGs only ban regs and not newbies breaking every rule in the TOU and being nasty. 

    @keikilove OH I totally get that there prolly wasn't time to invite me, and since it was post-business hours I wasn't online at that point anyways.  But I had to post some FOMO GIFS.  :lol:  LOVED your GIF play-by-play!
