So, hubby and I have decided to take the plunge after deciding that if we waited until we could afford it it would never happen! Anyway, I stopped taking the pill about a week ago. Now, I haven't had a period since November. So my question is when should I test? I have no idea when my period should start. I am a realist and am not expecting a 'first time of trying' miracle, however I might not get a period for a month or so anyway.
Thanks for the reply. The doctor said that this pill would mean that I would have no periods so all is normal with that. I changed over to the one I've just stopped about July last year, so they got lighter until I had the last one in November.
I guess I'll just test in four weeks if nothing has happened.
mmm, interesting. It sounds to me like it stops you ovulating like the combined pill but without the breakthrough bleed.
I'd try to relax and not get caught up on testing. Wait and see when your period arrives. It should do soon. My first period after finishing the pill i can remember as just before i felt like one of those birds that puffs its chest out to get a mate. I was VERY fruity and felt very womanly!! I was like some obsessed nutter!!
Luckily that feeling only lasted one cycle. Think my husband would have needed therapy if not
lol buggerlugs i was exactly the same! I was on the pill for 7 years and came off it in february/march and that first cycle i'd turned into a woman possessed overnight! ashock to mine and my husbands system but neither party grumbled!
I can't remember what kind of pill it was but I know I took it back to back; i.e. no 7 day break. I too am now feeling proper saucy, but I don't know if that is the pill or because there is now a point to doing it!
Hi Pipbin, just wanted to add, I came off a pill called Cerazette back in February, I never had a period on it, just came straight off and started TTC. I didn't have a period for 55days, thought I might have got lucky until I came on. Thought I was on my 2nd cycle but then about 8 days in had massive pains and bleeding etc and ended up with an ectopic pregnancy.
Turned out I was about 5 weeks pregnant so I had got pregnant straight away...however after doing some research on the pill I'd been on it turned out it was linked quite a lot with ectopic pregnancies and it would have been a much better idea to wait a cycle or two before TTC.
I'm sure you will be fine but just thought I would say as I wish someone had told me, I didn't even think about it before it happened as in the past I'd come off Microgynon twice and fallen pregnant straight away and both had been healthy pregnancies. Good luck with the TTC.
