This may be TMI but looking for comfort. Im on my 2nd cycle post BC after stopping in Dec. My withdrawal bleeds on the pill where heavy and lasted 4 days, they soaked about 2 super tampons a day so about 20ml, 80ml per cycle. Since then im still on for 4 days but the period starts with a day of brown discharge that i used a liner for and dont measure, then a day of about 10ml loss followed by a heavy day of 20ml loss. After that i get darker blood that averages about 5ml per day. Im about 40ml loss per cycle which is super low for me. I was on the pill 11 years so dont have a clear memory of it, but i was a teen then so i wouldnt be able to compare much anyway. My main concern is my family are early starters and finishers, most periods start at 10-12years and end mid 30s-40s. Im late 20 so im worried. Ill see GP next cycle if its the same. Two cycle have been 32 and 28 days long. Any ideas?
I really wouldn't worry. Periods are different post pill - mine are totally different since coming off the pill too. Give you body a chance to settle down and try not to worry - I know it's easier said than done x
nature you really are my Ttc twin!! I came off BC at Xmas. Just got af for second time. Two 28day cycles. Can't complain on that front - even if I'm not pregnant!! Soooo light though. Last one three days. Only two days of bleeding. This time - yesterday medium flow, today barely anything. I'm guessing this is why I haven't conceived yet - there can't be much comfy lining.
Just saw this bumped now. I too came off of the pill, has a withdrawal bleed as normal, and then into a 28 day cycle. Period was a little more crampy but no more different than the withdrawal bleeds I had l, perhaps lasted a day shorter?
Anyway, I was due AF on the 23/2 and I'm late. We are TTC - I've taken two tests and BFN. Is this normal to have a regular cycle (as before the pill) and into a regular, than late cycle?
It's our first month TTC so I was unsure what to expect to be honest. Naively assumed AF would be here thurs if it didn't happen! I've not had many symptoms as such - had my first ever bit of acne turn up and my nipples have gotten larger, this past few days I've had an increase of CM too and I can't remember what was normal last cycle! (Apologies if TMI!)
It's so strange. I've had a day and a half of af and it seems as if tonight, it's over again. I should be elated, jumping from the rooftops knowing af is gone and tummy should be flatter but instead I'm worrying that I can't make lovely comfy lining for a sticky bean and opks have been positive for the last two months too. Maybe this next month I'll give my mind a rest from the ttc
