    Default Just starting to TTC, waiting on AF to start charting

    How long to wait until I seek help to bring on AF so I can at least chart?!?! Or is that even possible? Was on Depo for 9 years. I don't get AF while on Depo so have no idea of my cycle times. Only off depo for 15 days now, but any other time I would "miss" my window for my next shot I would start AF within 2-4 days. Now that I have purposely stopped no AF in site for 15 days??

    I was on Depo for 5 years and then switched to pills and then went back on it before my wedding. When I didn't get the next shot (so we could TTC) it took 8 months for my cycle to come back with any regularity. That said, I would probably give it 30 days or so and if she doesn't show and you aren't pregnant you might contact your OB. Mine always wanted to do a month of BC pills to trigger AF to come back at the end of that, but I don't know if all OB's do it that way. If you are in a hurry to get started with charting and TTC then I'd go ahead and get in touch with your OB now. That's just my humble opinion though.

    BTW, Welcome to the boards!!! I hope your journey is short and sweet and I'm happy you're here to share it with us!

    Isn't that always how it works. Stupid witch always shows up when you want nothing to do with her but goes MIA when you actually need her to show! I hope she shows soon so you can move on and get on with TTC!
