Chart 1st month off BCP?

Does it make sense to chart the first month of bc, or does it take time to return to "normal"?
Expecting baby #2!

Re: Chart 1st month off BCP?

  • You should absolutely start charting right away. I went off BCP in July after being on for 15 years and started charting immediately. ?It really helped me to see what was going on with my body. ?I was lucky and my body regulated on my first cycle, but I wouldn't have known that I was O'ing if I hadn't been charting. ?Everyone is different with how long it takes to regulate after BCP.

  • Why not? It can't hurt. Even if your cycles are erratic, it will be good to get down a routine.

  • More information is always better! I'd start now.
  • I started charting the first cycle off BCP (10/20/08 cycle) and it really helped.  I wish I would have started sooner, so you should definitely start now.
