I'm kind of just passively monitoring my cycle and I was just curious about something. So CD 1 (first after no longer being on birth control) was June 28th. I felt that I had a lot of signs of ovulation around the weekend of July 4th. Tender breasts. Increase in general vaginal wetness. Very strong sex drive. Slight cramping on one side. We had sex 3 or 4 times around that time period so I was feeling optimistic. I would have expected my period to come at the end of this month...about a week from now. But my period came last night. At first I hoped it was implantation bleeding because the timing would have been perfect for that, but today it's a light to medium flow typical of a first day. So I'm pretty sure it's my period. Anyway, so based on this month I had a 23 day cycle. Is that weird? If it's normal, does that mean I ovulate way earlier in my cycle than the typical day 14? If so, it seems like I would would be fertile while I'm still at the tail end of my period, which is inconvenient.
I'm only mildly disappointed that I didn't get pregnant right away since it's SO MUCH FUN actually having a sex drive. Being on birth control is for the birds. It really just kills my libido.
