Hi all, I've just come off my mini pill after nearly 3 years has I want to start trying to have another child, I've been off the pill just 3 days now and I've had a little spotting and also DTD a fews back, and heard sometimes if your lucky can get pregnant just a few days after you stop so here's is there anyone out there just coming off the pill and how long did it take you to conceive??? Any advice would do thanks x

I had a withdrawal bleed a few days later bit then didn't ovulate for almost a month. My first proper cycle was 39 days. I think that's pretty common. It took me 5 months to get pregnant after coming off it last time and only second cycle of trying this time.

@oysterbabe I've had a little withdrawn bleed and just spotting a little bit when I wipe after I've been to the toilet (sorry tmi) I'm hoping I get my AF sometime this week but not holding my breath lol x

I was very lucky OP. I took my last mini pill , immediately had a four day withdrawal bleed then ovulated about a week later. I fell pregnant that cycle.

Take folic acid OP and good luck :-)

Hi lilremz, I was on cerazette and came off mid Feb (12th) had a withdrawal bleed /spotting a few days later and first period on 22nd of March. On first cycle of trying now, ovulated on Cd 21. It can take a while for your body to settle down although absolutely you can become pregnant straight after stopping and before you have a period.
For me it took almost four weeks to ovulate after stopping the pill, and then three weeks in this second cycle, currently 7dpo. This is very similar to when I came off the combined pill 3 years ago to have my ds.

Just to note you won't get a proper period for at least two weeks after stopping, to get a proper period you must ovulate first and then on average a period will arrive 12-16 days AFTER ovulation (everyone is different)
Hope this helps.

I had a baby last February. I had been on the mini pill for years. I came off it and had a bleed fairly quickly which I wasn't sure if it was a withdrawal bleed or not. Anyway, we started TTC and I fell pregnant the first month of trying.
Good luck! I hope it all works out for you.
