I came off the pill 11 weeks ago to start TTC and apart from the intial withdrawal bleed, have had no period since. Ben to the doctors who checked thyroid, etc etc which all came back normal so the Dr said basically try and forget about it and give it another 3 months. All of which is sensible but I just want to shout WHERE is my period?!!!!!!!
No-one in real life I can rant to as I don't want to put too much pressure on us if they know we are TTC, so I'm ranting here instead!
um, have you (both) tested? Ovulation comes before the period, obviously. it's not unheard of to conceive before your first period, be that after coming off contraception, after having a baby or just before having your first ever period...
I have very irregular periods and am always shouting 'where is my period!!'.
39 days so far since last one - hoping it will show up soon as I have a wedding a week on saturday and generally can't move for the first day or so as I also have excessively heavy periods! (Sorry - taking over your post with my rant!)
My friend came off the pill and didn't have a period for 4 months then found out she was pregnant so no news is good news for you maybe?
Fingers crossed Poogles! Initially the plan was to use other contraception until I had a period (just to get things back on track) then actively TTc. But since its taking so long we are just getting on with it now and yes hopefully it'll be a positive result soon!
I have PCOS and at the age of 44 have quite enjoyed NOT having periods so I was mightily pissed off when I woke up to a flood two days ago. Luckily I still had some stuff from the last time my body decided to spring a surprise on me. So - guess your period is with me - you are welcome to it as I hate them.
It was depo I was on and last injection due in July. Was on it before and on the second month I had a period and then they were like clockwork. On depo it can take up to 18 months though.
TBH I've recently lost my job so timing isn't good now where as it was before, but have no desire to go back on contraception. Much happier off it and DP earns OKish money so it wouldn't be a disaster.
Would still like my period though!
Hope you get yours back soon and get the + result you want!
Thanks everyone, and good luck to you Wine. it really is scary how much hormonal contraception tricks your body isn't it. No doubt when it does eventualy return I will be cursing its arrival and remebering why I went on the pill in thr first place!
