I've read lots of posts which suggest taking Agnus Castus to regulate your cycle, I'm coming off the pill when I am finished my current pack in 2 wks to TTC. I have been on the pill 12 years so I was wondering if anyone recommends I start taking this straight away or anything else? I would rather take things now than wait to realise in 3 mths I should have done it straight away! This forum is a wealth of information, its great!!!

I've probably written half those posts recommending Agnus Castus, so I don't know if another vote for it will make any difference, but yeah, it made a difference for me!

Gemini i would advice waiting at least one to two cycles as you may interfere with your natural hormone balance if you take supplements straight away and then may still be in a position were you are unsure of your cycles. Try temping from the first day you stop taking the pill and this will give you a good indication of when you ov and how many days are in your LP ! best of luck

Thanks Fat Frog, that's a very good idea, to be honest I didn't fancy the idea of temping/charting etc as I thought it would make things more pressurised but I realise from your post that its actually a good idea for monitoring my cycle and if there are any problems, I won't be raging that I didn't do it and have no idea about my own cycle! Thanks!!

I thought temping would be stressful too, but compared to waiting around for AF when you haven't even Ov'ed yet, it's a doddle!
