Mummytobe2014 Sat 08-Feb-14 21:40:48

I stopped the pill at the end of July and found out I was 5 weeks pregnant at the beginning of September. Pretty instant smile

Congratulations!

Yep. Stopped in May last year, found out in July I was pregnant (despite 3 bfn) & had to have a dating scan as we had no idea how far along I was (was confirmed at 9 weeks.)

I'm booked in for a section in 2 weeks smile

I came off the pill 1st week of Jan. Had a BFP yesterday ( and this morning). I've not heard any horror stories, I'm a bit panicked now what have you heard?

Mumof3xx Sun 09-Feb-14 07:41:39

I got pregnant twice on the pill (different pills)

I don't use it now lol

Madonnaquintessential Sun 09-Feb-14 07:44:20

Mumof3 what pills may i ask? Did you take them as instructed? ( I hope I am not being rude in asking, it is just I recently have gone on the pill... Dont wanna fall preggo on it and not know !

Mumof3xx Sun 09-Feb-14 07:47:04

I did yes

First it was micro-watsit, I did take it correctly however I was a bit of a party girl at this point and did a fair bit of being sick so I put it down to that

Then it was celest, and my gp advised I don't take oral contraception anymore

Injection has never failed for me

Mumof3xx Sun 09-Feb-14 07:47:41

I do know about 5 people who have conceived on Celeste though

bonzo77 Sun 09-Feb-14 08:32:22

Yup. Stopped the pill 10 days before our wedding. Morning sickness started on honeymoon! I put it down to a bug.

mummytobejuly2014 Sun 09-Feb-14 08:43:04

I was on antibiotics taking celeste & we got a big surprise in nov, due in july. had a few dicky tummy moments, im guessing its to blame along with the anti b's

MrsS28 Sun 09-Feb-14 08:52:41

I came off the pill last March (11 months ago) and our 8 week old baby is sat gurgling at me as I type!

donna011286 Sun 09-Feb-14 14:07:05

prettyinpink90 Sun 09-Feb-14 15:31:58

I stopped the pill last July, 28 days later I was pregnant. I'm now 30+2!
Congratulations smile

Madonnaquintessential Sun 09-Feb-14 15:53:50

Thanks for reply mummyof3. Im on yasmin thankfully! Wouldnt mind getting preggo, but would rather plan!! I came of pill after 10 years- got preggo in like 6 weeks!

poopooheadwillyfatface Sun 09-Feb-14 16:47:25

I got pregnant first month after stopping the pill twice. I was equally surprised both timesblush

whiteblossom Sun 09-Feb-14 17:29:48

with ds1, I came off the pill and got pregnant 10 days later!

This time, Ive not been on the pill for over a year as I cant find one that suits. As soon as we agreed to start trying I got pregnant 4 days later!

Both times we assumed it would take months but nope..

Tea1Sugar Sun 09-Feb-14 17:43:30

Dd1 I got pregnant on the pill despite being religious about taking it! Dd2 will be here in April and she was conceived within 6 weeks of stopping the pill.
