Hi, I’m new to mumsnet and just looking for some advice. Thursday two weeks ago I woke up with bleeding which I assumed was just a period as I was on the pill but I hadn’t been taking my 7 day break in between packs as I’d been away on holidays etc. So I stopped the pack I was taking and carried on to have a period.
So Saturday just past my partner and I agreed that I wouldn’t start the next pack and we would try for a baby.
I just wondered is there anything I should be doing, or need to do or should I just sit back and let my body sort things out for me and it’ll happen when it’s meant to?

Any advice would be much appreciated smile

As you’ve been on the pill it’s just about letting your body get back in the swing of things naturally. Sometimes that’s straight other times it’s longer, everyone’s different. I wouldn’t behave any different to normal though. Most people ovulate about two weeks after their period, just to give you an idea.

Ideally you should be taking folic acid for 3 months before TTC. And just being patient with your body. It can be a little bonkers coming off the pill. I didn’t have a period for 50 days. Don’t worry. And sit tight. Enjoy yourself. Good luck.
