hi, i just wonder'd if any other ladies have try'd to concive after taking the mini pill cerazette ?

call me greedy but im a happy married mummy to 6 and i would love a 7th !
i breast feed all my children for 6 months and after my last DD when i stopped feeding her i went on the combined pill but for some reason ( age ??) it didnt agree with me any more , so i went on the mini pill cerazette for the last 6 months with NO MP at all !
iv read some awfull things about women trying to concive for years after taking this mini pill , and just wonder'd if any body has any positve stories to tell?

I was on cerazette for two years, came off it at the end of December, concieved in April! But really tried to actively catch the first 3 months, had sex a couple of times in April without 'trying' and it happened! Also cycles were not normal, every month I came on very late. A week late each time, which was heartbreaking. But after giving up trying, it happened! So try not to stress (easier said than done of course!!) Good luck! Xx

ladies any of you trying to get your period back after coming off pill or regulate cycle back to 28 days- please try agnus cactus, completely natural supplement used for PMS but also has a crazy reputation for bringing on periods that have stopped after pill/regulating cycle & helping 100s of women conceive. Day after i took it, I got my first period after coming off pill months before. Am now 17 wks preg smile

Needs to be higher dose than most health foods shops are now allowed to sell thanks to a stupid, pointless regulation on herbal supplements - read the reviews on here- www.amazon.co.uk/Agnus-Castus-1000mg-tablets-vitex/dp/B00ERP5MM0

Iv only been on it since the end of October I stopped the 4th but yesterday got a brownish bleed but it's stopped today only noticed when I wiped? Cud it be a withdrawal bleed I haven't a clue :P

Hi everyone I new here and I know it's an old post but il ask anyways
Iv been on the combined pill for a year or so and came off it due to high blood pressure I was on 2 different ones before the doctor put me on certezze the end of October iv come off it the 4th of December as I read so much about not conceiving on it and now I want a baby was wonder how long it will take to get normal cycle? Had spotting yday but it's stopped now and had it last week while still on it? Didn't start TTC yet as I'm afraid of the spotting coming back

I stopped Cerazette in February, didn't have a period until May, then had very long 35day + cycles, but then conceived on the 4th one in August and am now 5+4 smile
I honestly thought it wouldn't happen, I really did, those few months waiting for my period to turn up between Feb and May were absolute torture!!

emmalouise90 Mon 06-Oct-14 21:11:05

I was on cerazette for 3.5 years stopped In second week of August to ttc number 2 never had a period and found out I was pregnant last week!! Don't let horror stories put u down took me 5-6 weeks with no withdraw bleed or period so is possible to get bfp very quick good luck xx

AF came yesterday, so I seem to be back on a regular cycle, only off cerazette 2 months and have 2nd AF, feeling lucky compared to other stories i've heard, I was on Cerazette for 3yrs and had the implant in for 6 years before that and the Deprovera Injections before that, looking forward to TTC this month, wish us lots of luck xx

Babysbums Wed 01-Oct-14 10:52:27

Due Period yesterday, had a few twinges and cramps, still nothing today, thanks for the reasurance x

Sess01 Tue 30-Sep-14 11:33:43

Came of Pill monday. Conceived Wednesday. Don't panic. You'll be fine. X

Babysbums Tue 30-Sep-14 09:55:40

Came off cerazette and got a period after 3 weeks, tested ovulation straight after period and tests were high, then peak within days after period, DTD all that week, due next period today, done HPT and got negative result! We basically stuck to the days tested positive for ovulation and didn't really think it any addition to try other time maybe twice randomly (for fun), is it possible I ovulated at a different time of the month and missed the window??

Bethany1611 Sun 28-Sep-14 16:24:22

I came off ceraztte 3 weeks ago to ttc number 2.. No period yet but with t first pregnancy I suffered with thrush a lot! And that is the only time I've had it! I now have suddenly got a bout of thrush? It's that a side affect of coming off the pill or an early pregnancy symptom x

skyebrooke2012 Mon 22-Sep-14 15:29:51

hey I came off my pill 2 days ago and im having a bleed will it be a period or something else? need help im confused

Ellie2elysia Fri 15-Aug-14 20:58:08

I was on cerazette for around a year I came off my pill and fell pregnant after first period smile I'm now 38+3 with my baby boy and I am super super excited and lucky :D good luck x

DinoSnores Fri 15-Aug-14 18:04:23

Was on Cerazette while BFing. Stopped it to TTC & pregnant 3 months later.

babyandsparkle Fri 15-Aug-14 17:30:29

Took over 12 months for my periods to come back after Cerazette. I was quite stressed too though so could of had something to do with it!

Heyitsholly Fri 15-Aug-14 17:27:56

Hey everyone
I read all your posts before i came off cerazette and became worried as id been on it 6 years with no periods. Came off it and had a heavy period spot on time. Now just done a test and im pregnant! Gonna book in with docs to confirm
Ive been taking multi vits as they sat it helps!

My advice is dont stress, just have loadsa sex! Hehee
smile

Another instant pregnancy here too - stopped cerzazette 3rd April and hadn't had period for about 1.5 years while on it for 2.5 years. Waited for period, nothing came, took test on 9th May and BFP! Didn't even have a withdrawal bleed.

Went for a private early scan just to date it, but it worked out pretty much as date from day after last pill.

There are a lot of horror stories online about time to conceive after coming off it which had worried me no end - but there are lots of super quick stories too! (I'm now 10+5).

Another instant pregnancy here too! Dated from the day after my last pill. DH thinks he has super sperm.

Katyl22 Sat 21-Jun-14 22:50:00

I took cerazette for four years and stopped on 20th May and found out yesterday that I'm 1-2 weeks pregnant! I know a lot of women talk about a hormone surge immediately after stopping the mini pill but it's not medically proven... Seems to have been the case with me though! X

Bomber1313 Fri 20-Jun-14 17:34:07

AF arrived this morning!!

7 weeks 2 days after taking my last cerazette (was on them for ten years). Finally we can calculate when the fertile window is rather than trying to remember to take my temp each morning!

Bomber1313 Mon 02-Jun-14 14:26:59

Just got back from gp after a BFN and he said he's not worried by the lack of AF and to come back in three months if they've still not come back... Three months on top of the month already - when on earth will I have a chance of getting pg sad
