I went on BC at 18 for contraceptive purposes. My cycles started on or about the 20th of every month. I never tracked because it wasn't terribly important to me (like it is now!), but I do know it was the 20th, so my cycles were likely 29-31 days. I am just hoping they return to that quickly.
How important is it to you to know exactly when you conceive? (To me, that's very important as it can really help with issues that may arise re: the timing of your pregnancy - to know when you are actually full-term, post-dates etc. and to not have issues with ultrasounds and measurements being wrong.) I say that because you could ovulate at any time and then only find out you are pregnant later, so I'd probably use a barrier method until I get a period so I can chart - in fact I'd even advise charting a cycle or two first if you're not in a rush before actually consciously trying.
I would like to know when I conceive, but it isn't something I've considered in terms of the issues you raise. I will think about that though.

I'm not in a rush, but I wouldn't be upset if it happened sooner rather than later. I've looked into BBT and CM charting and Ovulation predictor kits. I think I will probably try one or the other once my period starts.

I used to get ovulation pains before I went on BC, so I suspect I will get them again, which is good for this whole process as well.

I only starting charting my temps after I missed my period. I generally run a very low temp and I knew I was ovulating the day my ex and I had sex bc of CM. I even told him 'hey I'm ovulating" and he said yea right. Lol. He was proven wrong when my period was late and a week later I showed him the positive test.

I took temps for a week straight from the first day of my missed period and they were all high but I knew I was pregnant bc of the CM I experienced that day. As far as when I got pregnant, it was exactly 3months after I was off birth control. My periods were never normal except for when I was on BC but I also never had ovulation pains on BC so when I got off I knew my periods were back to what they originally were when I started experiencing those pains again.
