Hi ladies! I came off the pill about 5/6 months ago and had four regular periods, last one finished Dec 24th, I skipped January's (due 16th jan) but on the 6th Feb (two weeks late or early if I skipped it?) I started spotting, then watery blood/mucus I'm not too sure then spotting but it was on off for 3 days and completely stopped. I've had no pain at all, not charting or anything and since December I've had every symptom, ones that I didn't even realise were symptoms! Bfn and blood tests that I now realise I had done far too early - don't even think I was late at this point but they came back negative. I haven't been stressed over it and we've not long started ttc. Anyone else been in the same boat?

Much the same here, just had 5 week gap between AF, now having same as last period, it's 2/3 days nothing on liner but dark and clotty when wiped (sorry TMI again!). Came off pill November. Also had several hopeful poas but bfn each time. What is happening!

It's annoying not knowing what's going on isn't it! Dont know whether I should be counting when I'm next due from my actual last period or the weird one I had recently! I've read that it could be our bodies preparing us for when we do conceive though so fingers crossed!

I'll be hoping it's that! Not getting too hung up on it as very early in TTC but all the same - spend years trying not to get pregnant and then ... it doesn't happen instantly. Yes I'm not sure about the counting, I keep meaning to do the tracking thing on my phone health app or download something which might tell me a bit more.

I've just downloaded glow, I don't think I'll be able to get my head around opk and I think it would just stress me out so I'll just have to wait and see! Good luck!

I've got glow and used OKPs this month along side.. I actually ovulated a week later than predicted on Glow so I'm not sure it's very reliable. Good for tracking periods tho! X

Oh okay thankyou, I'll just use it to track so I can get used to doing that first. With being on the pill for so long I got used to not even thinking about it! 🙈

I was the same, on the pill for a very long time & stopped taking it in September. Glow is good to refer back to cycle lengths and how long your period lasts etc. I've been to see my GP, and it was useful to be able to show him too! Good luck x
