Totally new to this but I need advice.
Came off microgion over 3 months ago. After being on it for 14 yrs with a couple of 6 months breaks. I had a with drawal bleed. Then perfect 28 days to another bleed which lasted 2 days. Then another 28 days to a 1 day bleed. Then 28 days to a 2 week bleed. Now I am 36 days and nothing. I'm not pregnant so tests say.
I have wanted kids since I was young and my husband has just agreed. Stupidly I never knew the pill could muck u up badly.

Any in site to what happening would be great. I am embarrassed to go to drs as I went when I had bled for 2 weeks as I didn't know coming offpill could do this.

On a side note I am a bit of a hypocondriac but I think my hair at the front of my head has got thinner and I have got black hairs growing on my chin?

Advice and reasurance would be great.
Thank you in advance.

I have been lucky that had understanding gp. At 7 months no AF had bloods taken which showed no abnormalities, then ultrasound at ten months which showed bulky right ovary(?). A 6/7 week cycle isn't unusual for me so not too bothered that am on day cd34 other than no idea when(if) I'm ovulating..

CD53 and then AF. At least it finally came. So that's one cycle of 44 days and one of 53. Here's hoping the next one is a bit shorter!

Hi, I'm hoping to come off Cerazette in the next couple of days, before Cera which I've been on for about 4 years I tried Yasmin, and before that was on mycrogynon but whenever I had a break would have very heavy and painful AF, she made her visits known! All together 10 years of the pill in one form or another, I'll keep you posted on how I get on! I am expecting about 6-8 months of a rollercoaster ride! hmm

I had 63 days before af when I came off cerazette.
Ive had 11 years on and off with various pills and mini pills. Its been educational finding out how crap periods are!

Hi all! Thought I'd share too!

I've been in a similar situation myself.. I'm 28 years old and came off Marvellon in November 2012 after 14years. Had a withdrawal bleed and nothing since :-( I'm not pregnant and it's really been worrying me.

I went to the Drs last week about it and they are going to do some blood tests to check my hormones etc are OK. They're also gonna do a scan to look at my ovaries.

He told me it could take a while for things to get back to normal and I have had the occasional 'twinge' which felt like a period coming but still nothing!

Hopefully it's all ok and will kick in soon but I'm glad I've raised my concerns.
