Coming off the pill and TTC

(6 Posts)

I have just come off the pill as DH and I have decided it is time to TTC. Stopped pill on Tuesday and have started bleeding this morning. Question for anyone else who has come off pill - could I have AF this quickly or is it withdrawal bleeding?

Answers on a postcard please!

I'd class that as withdrawal bleed - the next time you bleed after this would be your first proper AF. Hth - good luck!

Hi misty, I was pretty similar to you. Came off the pill march, am ttc and have first bleed a week after. Then my first proper cycle and Oh my god watch out for your first af as and when it comes. I don't think my periods have ever been as bad as what I experienced for that week. Was one hell of a long week too! Good luck ttcsmile

Thanks guys, that is great. Makes me feel a little less of a lunatic. I get the feeling that lunacy is going to be part of TTC for me!

Haha me and dh are a pair of loonies trying to Dtd every other day at least just so some of the little blight era are up there all the time grin

Yeah, it will be a fake period. If you stopped at the end of a strip, the first week is just like the normal stop week. It's when you no longer take the pill after that week that everything start working again, so to say.
