I'm on month / cycle 2 of BCP after getting my period back at 9 months postpartum. I'm on day 14 of my cycle and I'm definitely noticing ovulation style twinges / cramping and CM, maybe EWCM. Do you ever notice fertility signs on BCP? Do you take it to mean that maybe the BC is not being very effective this cycle and failed to prevent ovulation, etc?

Hmmm. I guess I never really paid much attention to fertility signs when on BCP. I always trusted that if I knew I was taking it as directed then it was working. Never failed me, but that doesn't mean much lol.

When I was on BCP I definitely did not have the same ovulation symptoms i experience when off the pill. If it were me, I would probably be careful.

I did not have fertility signs at all on the pill. I remember when I first took it (years ago) I was told to use backup birth control for the first two months because it can sometimes take time to be effective. Not sure if this was specific to the particular pill I was using.

@Umbreon: thankfully we have been busy with life the last couple of days and hopefully not making life, ha! @periwinklebee: yeah we've been using condoms or PnP too but ugh, just in case...
