Wondering if anyone else has experienced this? I came off the pill to ttc at the beginning of June - I was taking Noriday, so progesterone only - and since then nothing has happened. I mean literally nothing. I haven't had a period, I thought I had some spotting once but I'm wondering if I imagined it. I did some OPKs in the first month and some of them looked almost positive but not quite. I stopped using them as they were just adding to my anxiety about the whole thing.
I've been doing pregnancy tests fairly regularly just to be sure as I haven't had a period yet. I'm aware that it can take a year or more to get pregnant even with no fertility issues but I have nothing to go on and it's just so frustrating. I can't use a fertility app as they all ask when your last period was but haven't had one since before I started taking the pill 4 years ago!
I have a genetic condition which means I'm extra prone to blood clotting so bearing that in mind, should I worry about the lack of menstrual bleeding? I'm reluctant to bother my GP with it as I'm concerned they'll just tell me to come back when we've been ttc for a year or however long they say
Hi @ijustgothitbyadeer, I'm in a similar position. I stopped my pill in August and have had no sign of a period. I went to my doctor and in 2 weeks time he is doing a blood test to check my prostegen levels and hormones etc. He said he will also do a ultrasound of my ovaries. I was a bit surprised as I thought he would send me away and ask me to come back in 6 months as waiting for AF after BC is common. might be worth visiting your GP x
I came off cerazette 5 weeks ago, and nothing has happened - no periods, negative OPKs etc. I'm 31 and ttc #1. It's so frustrating. Like you op, I would be interested to know if other people have any advice to give.
@Stellarbella I came off cerrazette on 16th sept and also no period yet. However I have been using opks and taking my temps and I think i have now ovulated (a few days ago) so hopefully period should come in another 10-12 days or so!
OP I agree and would go and see your GP. I spoke to mine when I was coming off the pill and she said to give it 3 months and go and see her if my periods didn’t come back in that time (I have suspected PCOS)
@IJustGotHitByADeer No she didn’t say specifically however I think they can do blood tests and/or an ultrasound scan. It will either put your mind at rest or if there is an issue at least you’ll know and can do something about it!
They’re doing a blood test to check hormone levels to ensure I’m actually ovulating. Dr thinks the ewcm I had when I missed a pill in May was just hormone fluctuation and not ovulation they’re also checking my thyroid and rubella status. Premature menopause was mentioned but only with a view to ruling it out.
Im somewhat in the same boat but not quite! I was on a birth control called sunya, it was at the time I went on it an experimental contraceptive. I stayed on it for years before they moved me over to the mini pill then let me have sunya back lol. Either way I am now on cd45 since my withdrawal bleed. The difficult part for me is I've had most symptoms of pregnancy including the latest leaky breast
