Hello girls,

I have come off my Cilest pill on the 6th June this year after 4 years as me and my partner are ttc. My question is, how long did it take you to become pregnant after stopping the pill? I've heard bad things about Cilest so I'm a little worried :S

Thanks! smileflowers

Literally three weeks. Good luck :-)

wow that's so reassuring ! What signs did you have when you were pg? (also, I love your username 'LordVoldemortsMissingNose' :'))

I had one cycle off the pill but not trying just so I could have a proper period. Got pregnant the first month we tried. So only one month!

Was on cilest obv...!

Ah thanks! I didn't find out I was pg until 6.5 weeks, had no period to date it from and I'm a bit slow to notice pregnancy symptoms! I had sore boobs mostly so tested on te off chance and it was positive. That was nearly 4 years ago now and my daughter is a treasure :-)

I got pregnant within the first month of coming off it.

Period pain and no period was my early pregnancy symptom!

When is your period due?

Jetson365 Thu 07-Jul-16 11:06:33

It's due on Sunday I think but I've been having these pains for the past week and a half ! Not sure what's happening. I took at test last week but it was negative sad

SaveSomeSpendSome Thu 07-Jul-16 17:41:45

Last week would of been way too early to tell.

Jetson365 Thu 07-Jul-16 22:16:40

oh right okay, when would be best to test then ? smile

SaveSomeSpendSome Thu 07-Jul-16 22:38:43

On the day your period is due and after your period is due.

I was on Cilest for about 8 years. Came off it and DS was conceived first month. I found out yesterday i am pregnant again and that was 2nd month.

Jetson365 Fri 08-Jul-16 11:03:46

Oh my goodness congratulations flowers ! Did you have any symptoms? I think I'm going to wait till Monday to test

Banana82 Fri 08-Jul-16 13:02:18

Thank you! I felt the same as I did when I conceived DS. Had a really upset tummy for a few days anout a week before I tested. Other than that nothing. Just that I can normally tell when my period is going to start 3/4 days before it does and I had none of the mild crampy pains like I normally get. Good luck waiting to test! I managed to wait for a week after my period was due just to be sure!

Stopped taking it after 10 years at the end of February. And was pregnant by May. I was keeping note of when my period was due and it just never came. So that day (after work around 6pm) took a test came back positive! Didn't have any signs at all other than a missed period. Now we have a beautiful 6 month old daughter grin

Slight breakthrough bleed after stopping cilest mid packet then pregnant before a proper period even appeared. Same again with second child after stopping microgynon.

It's so reassuring to hear all of your stories! I have just heard bad things about someone off the pill but I feel better about it now. Although I am getting sorry yellow discharge at the moment (sorry for TMI guys sad) so I'm not sure what that means !
