What were my cycles like before I began the 2016 fertility challenge?
Coming off the pill (hormonal contraceptives) in August 2014 completely messed with my cycles, which is an all too common experience for women. My body skipped a period after coming off the pill and my cycles were a regular 28 days with a short, light one day period each month. From what I now know about my body I am convinced that I was not ovulating for the first 6 months of trying to conceive. It wasn't until March 2015 that my 'normal' periods returned.
Careful monitoring and records of my cycles began when my regulate period returned. This is when 'records began'.
Throughout 2015 my cycles were on average 37 days long.
