I know there's loads of horror stories but some people say it only took 2 weeks to conceive after stopping. I want to get pg asap after stopping - whats the average time?

with DS1, I fell pregnant whilst taking cerezette (No antibiotics to screw it up or anything!) and with DS2 I came off it in Jan 2011 and fell pregnant during 1st week of March 2011 so roughly six weeks. hth

oooh thanks gusjust what I needed to hear. how were your periods when you came of it, or didn;t you have one?

congrats on both DS's!

33pinkladyapple when trying to conceive ds2, the one I had was very very light and only lasted 3 days as opposed to the normal 5. With ds1 I only used to get af every 4 months and again was quite light compared to before I started on it.
Thanks, they're lovely little chaps, can't believe how quick it's gone though, ds1 starts school next week!

Hi im new to this whole thing, mumsnet and conception both!! just wondering if anyone can shed some light on my concerns

I had my implant removed in June after 7 years and have been on the pill (microgynon )since then (June - Aug) is it advisable to come of the pill and have a natural period before ttc? or does it matter much??

gus ooh my 2 have been very light and only lasted 2/3 days. Hopefully I'll be the same as you and get pg pretty quickly. fx.

It took me 20 months after coming off Cerazette.

I heard that it was difficult to conceive after coming off cerazette so i stopped taking it 6 months earlier than I had planned to give myself chance to conceive and I'm happy to say I caught after only 2 weeks smile no period either. Was abit shocked that it has happened so fast so I'm still trying to take it all in ATM

I was on cerazette for just under 3 months, stopped taking it a week today! (29/11/2012). I'm quite worried as usually I would come on straight away if I missed a pill, its now been a week of no pills and there is still no sign of any bleeding! Me and my boyfriend are TTC, and we started doing the deed straight away (every night for the past week to be completely honest). Is it too soon to ask if I'm pregnant!?

im on month 4 but this is only the third cycle....fingers crossed i get my bfp this month! Ive been on the pill for 10 years, didnt take my body long to sort itself out...thankfully!

deliasmithy Thu 20-Dec-12 01:13:46

I had read info on the net that didn't indicate any problems, so I naively stopped cerazette just before TTC. I then didn't get 1st AF for 10 weeks. I wish I had known.

MotherOfCleo Thu 20-Dec-12 14:49:35

Sorry just checked and for the last 3 years I was on cilest not bad sorry.

Swedeheeed Thu 20-Dec-12 17:23:40

I'm on day 26 after coming off cerezette no AF yet.TTC so will test at weekend!

Hi! I suggested testing every other day until period turns up as you might be on a 35 dayer this month! Good luck. X

Suggest not suggested!

nectarini1983 Sat 23-Mar-13 18:06:21

Fell pg with my daughter same month as had tube removed following ectopic pregnancy Feb 2009.

Stopped taking cerazette in may 2010 and took me til june 2011 to fall pregnant with my son.

After my son took cerazette again as was breast feeding, stopped end August 2012 and fell pg in Sept 2012 but sadly lost my second boy at 17 weeks pg.

I'll never take it again as just didn't feel "me" and doesn't seem natural to not have a period.

Emmlou81 Sun 26-Oct-14 11:42:03

I've been on cerzatte for 5 years been off it 3 mths still nothing confused had terrible sickness after taken it to say I'll never be taken it again angry

Sweets27 Tue 28-Oct-14 15:42:44

Hi EmmLou and others, just thought I'd add my tuppence worth! Sorry to hear you've been feeling ill EmmLou.

Does anyone else have experience of coming off Cerazette and TTC, since the original posts on here from 2012/2013? Any success stories from those who were posting back then?

My husband and I want to TTC in the new year, but I'm thinking about coming off Cerazette before then to give me some time for cycles to re-normalise. Been on it 10+ years so I'm sure there's a lot of readjusting to do...!

sarahlou20 Tue 28-Oct-14 15:57:18

Hi Emmlou81 and Sweets - Yes, I was on Cerazette for three years from March 2011 until March 2014. I didn't have any periods while I was on it and then fell pregnant pretty quickly in April before AF arrived but unfortunately I had a MMC at 9 weeks (the pregnancy only measured 6 weeks).

I would definitely recommend coming off the pill for a couple of months before TTC to let your hormone levels settle down to normal. I don't know if that had anything to do with my MC and it was probably just bad luck really, but in a way I wish I'd had a couple of normal cycles first.

Sweets27 Tue 28-Oct-14 16:06:45

Really sorry to hear that, sarahlou. I'm a bit worried after hearing a lot of stories about MCs after comingo ff Cerazette, but I hope it was just an anomaly for you. Are you TTC again now? Best of luck!

sarahlou20 Tue 28-Oct-14 16:29:33

Thanks Sweets. I'm sure it was just one of those things and I hope I haven't worried you too much. MC is unfortunately very very common and I'm sure if you were to research into the instances of it after any contraceptive pill you'd find the same thing.

Yes, I'm TTC again. Am in the two week wait at the moment and am aiming to do a test on Mon or Tues as I'm having some very promising signs smile. All the very best when you TTC in the new year too. x

Me624 Tue 28-Oct-14 21:36:32

I came off cerazette at the end of feb. My periods had stopped completely and it was two months before I had the first one after stopping, counting from then I'm now on cycle 7 and not got my bfp yet but still trying!

WantingToBeLuckyLaura Wed 19-Nov-14 15:08:44

Hi Ladies, Just came across this poll while doing some more research.. just for a change!

I officially came off Cerazette on 3rd November this year not so long ago and missed pills on 31st and 1st November...

The first week off Cerazette was hurrendous!! hormones alert!! so far things seem to have settled down but I'm convinced I'm pregnant now! or my body is at least...

+ bloating
+ gas
+ cant lay on my stomach at night anymore
+ Tired
+ had cramps in the first to second week including down the left hand side, now I'm left with little twinges
+ joints ache
+ back ache!!
+ head ache
+ slight abdominal cramping

*note the ache ache ache! haha *

I've not had a withdrawl bleed, I've not had any spotting or bleeding at all to be honest!

Just noticed there is a potentially pink mark in the lining of my underwear.. but could just be my eyes haha

I've noted from research NHS advises to test 3 weeks after unprotected intercourse, so for me, that would mean sometime next week... or if i can wait.. the week after.. to which I would then be 5-6 weeks... should i get a bfp..

However, I couldnt wait.. I was convinced the first week dont ask me why obv bfn... took a test this monday.... bfn.. so now I'm waiting... (she says!!)

Today I have terrible headaches, increased temp, bloating and it feels like I am constantly releasing something.. possibly cm.. who knows!

Either way, it's all driving me bonkers! I want my BFP!! NOW!!

Lots of sticky baby dust ladies! smile

L xx

I came off cerazette 17th Sept (after having been on it about 5 years, with no periods). Had a period 3.5 weeks later, and then another bang on 28 days later (in Nov), so was feeling v pleased with my body! Just had first month ttc in Nov. If my cycle was 28 days, then I am now 3 days late (but bfn on tests), so I don't know what's going on!? Maybe I didn't ovulate, maybe I'm not regular, maybe it is taking me longer to get back to normal after all... All very frustrating. I don't think if I was doing it all over again I'd taken any form of hormonal contraception. It screws with your body too much!
