I was on cerazette for about 5 years. Took a break in the middle and it took me a good few months to get AF, but this time got AF in 35 days iirc, then each cycle shrank gradually til I was back to around 28. Imho it's too early to worry about your cycle, it'll level out in time
Hi Super. When I came off the pill it took around 45 days to have my first period, then about 39 days for the second one and then they evened out to 29-32 days. My periods only last 4 days at most so you sound completely normal to me!!
Hiya, when i came off the pill it took 42 days to get my first period, then 48 days from my first to my 2nd and then 70 days from my 2nd to my 3rd, so its anybodies guess how long yours will get back to normal. I only hope yours wont be as bad as mine! Good luck!!
I was on Mercilon before TTC. I got my first period about 35 days after coming off pill, had very short period, I think a day and a half! Didn't get another period because I fell pregnant the next month. So strange periods don't necessarily mean you're not ovulating, etc. Good luck!
It takes a while. I came off pill in january. have had cycles of 27, 27, 38, 30, 31 and now another long one i think (or maybe up the duff? but think unlikely). Just when I think i know what they are doing they change. Was having lots of spotting days befoe af but none this month. AF also now just 2 days, much lighter than when on pill.
I came off the pill in March after 12 years. So far it's been 41, 42, 37 and 33 days. I'd say I hope that my period comes at 33 days or less next time but I'd rather a BFP I think
I do wish I'd come off the pill about 6 months before starting to ttc properly. The long cycles are a real pain, especially when I worked out that if I'd had nice 28 day cycles I'd have had 5 cycles not 4!
Some people go back to normal straight away. It took me 6 months for my hormones to start over again, remember you have been effectively on hormone replacement therapy!
My cycles were really short and AF extremely light. I also had lots of spotting before AF. All this points to a lack of progesterone which apparently can be quite common after the pill. After 6 months my cycles have legthened to 27 days, no spotting and a much more normal length, 4 days. It can take a while for the lining to build up properly. Good luck! p.s. I also wish I had come off the pill 6 months ago!
mine very much like yours farfalla with the spotting and light periods, def a regulating thing and seems to be quite common, except the lucky devils like Granny who are updiffed within 20mins of coming off the pill ;)
I didn't get back to normal for years. I had acupuncture to sort it out in the end and that did it within a few months. May have been nothing to do with the pill tho, although the docs did check and couldn't find a reason. But if you end up the same, I recommend acupuncture.
