I came off the pill in Jan. Had normal withdrawal, a week after I stopped. I'm currently 3 months post pill.

Last week I had 2 days of very light spotting. Nearly missed it really. Just seeing if it's turned into anything else ... But 1 week later there's nothing.

Anyway ... Has anyone else experienced any random spotting coming off contraception?

Also I herd you can't get pregnant this late coming off the pill until you've had a period? Is that right?

Thank you!!

I'd wait a bit longer to see how your body adjusts to life off the pill. It can take months to settle down. Could always see your gp if things don't settle.
Did you have regular periods before going on the pill?

Have you taken a test? I got pregnant with DS immediately after coming off the pill - I had my usual withdrawal bleed then got pregnant straight away!

Could also be an ovulation bleed, or an implantation bleed.........I'd take a test just to make sure. Then use a fertility app to start logging your symptoms until your body settles down and you can figure out what is normal for you.

Thanks Ladies for the advice.

I have been recording symptoms since i came off for hope when i regulate i can see some sort of pattern. This week I have had lots of CM (but Its been like this since i came off the pill!) I've had a few mild headaches. Pretty much all day on tuesday. Before i went to sleep i had mild stomach cramps.

Woke up with stomach cramps and they were pretty much constant all day. Only mild although were slightly more intense at lunch. These were like mild AF cramps (From what I remember)

I was a late starter as far as my first periods go less that a year after they started I went on the pill. So i believe they never really had a chance for them to regulate. So this is my first time off contraception since i was 16.

I'll see how I feel over this weekend and see if I can see any changes or if anything seems weird. Then I'll possibly test. Doing my best not to symptom spot ... but i know for sure spotting was real and unusual!

Thanks again!!

Hey Tweety and everyone else grin just thought I'd post as I've been in a very similar situation-
I went off the pill in July (after being on it for 10 years since I was 16). It took me until October to finally have AF but it was only like 2/3 days of spotting rather than "real" if you know what I mean! That continued each month until January when it started to get more "normal"... but my cycles are still not exactly regular.

I think I'm a bit of a weird case as most people seem to be fine as soon as they go off the pill- blush but i have been to the GP who say it can take up to a year for things to settle down...
fx you'll have a BFP soon instead of having to worry about it wink
