TTC - Fresh Off The Pill

(53 Posts)

Just wondering if there is anyone else fresh off the pill?

Took last pill 25th May, had breakthrough bleed 30th May to 3rd June

Not had any sign of AF yet. I was on Microgynon pill for about 7 years or so.

How long did it take for your first AF after stopping the pill?

TIA smile x

Hi. I'm 3 weeks off. Took my last pill 14th june. Had a withdrawal bleed. Absolutely convinced I'm already pregnant but negative test today. I was on it for about 5 years

Fingers crossed for you 🤞🤞
I had loads of symptoms a few weeks after coming off the pill but unfortunately i'm not pregnant yet 😢

Took my last pill first week in April, had a withdrawal bleed in the first few days and nothing since sad

I'm in the same boat but a bit behind you.. Took my last pill 22nd June, withdrawal bleed 26th to 30th and now just waiting for something to happen!

Hate to put the downers on you as everyone is different but I stopped the pill in January. Had my withdrawal, then waited 74 days for a period then 54 days

Still waiting for the third cycle

@PeanutButter19 @clolo @Mycrazylife85

it's awful when you dont know when to expect something isn't it!
🤞🤞 for us all soon!

If i'd have known i'd have come off the pill a long while before now!

I was expecting to come off and be back to normal straight away x

How weird, after posting that last message I went to the loo and have really dark brown blood.. no idea what that means?!

Mrsccc Fri 05-Jul-19 15:36:39

@clolo how strange!

PeanutButter19 Fri 05-Jul-19 15:53:44

@mrsccc I was the same if i knew I would have come off a lot sooner I had no idea that it wasn’t even a real period, I thought it was better to regulate my cycles

Yvonne1988 Fri 05-Jul-19 16:17:13

I didn't know any of that either. My boyfriend has only given us 6 months. Hoping I was one of those extra fertile right after stopping lol

Mycrazylife85 Fri 05-Jul-19 16:41:33

@Mrsccc yep! Couldn't agree with you more.

Feel so much better off it too. Would have ditched it years ago 🙄

I was on the pill (combined then minipill) for a long time. Everybody is different when they come off- lucky people get preggers right away, others have a good few months until cycles are regular. I had 57 days until first period. My second cycle has been 44 days. Third cycle now, have to wait and see how long this one is!

Hi everyone
I came off the pill early February & didn't have a period for 4 months (129 day cycle) but I did have the odd bit of spotting in-between. Currently on cd 20, started using opk tests but keep getting a total negative as in I don't even get a faint 2nd line so I think it's going to be another long cycle 😔

Everyone is different though, I've seen lots of ladies comment that their cycles went back to normal very quickly or they got pregnant straight away. I think it depends what they were like before going on the pill. Mine were never regular to start with, that's one thing I liked about the pill - I actually knee when to expect AF!

Yvonne1988 Sat 06-Jul-19 00:06:09

I was very clockwork off the pill I only took it because I loved the control it gave me.

Mrsccc Sat 06-Jul-19 08:53:33

I was like clockwork before going on the pill too.

Was hoping I'd go back to normal straight away but not looking likely!

Will just have to wait and see x

I was pretty regular too, I liked the option of knowing when exactly to expect my period, I had the implant in until about 2 years ago now and when I got it removed I didn’t have a period for 5 months so the doctor put me back on the pill to regulate things as he said, if I’d of known i would of just left it and let them get back to normal themselves I thought I was doing the right thing

Yvonne1988 Sat 06-Jul-19 11:02:27

I felt quite confident I could do it in 6 months til I came on here lol and read up about gettimg back to normal after the pill

PeanutButter19 Sat 06-Jul-19 11:22:13

Me too I came off the pill sooner than planned from reading stuff on this 🙈

Yvonne1988 Sat 06-Jul-19 11:54:06

If I'd have known I might have but my oh not as keen as me so I'm greatful just for the chance to try

PeanutButter19 Sat 06-Jul-19 13:57:16

I was getting myself in a panic and then I thought I may just relax and let it happen when it happens. I think once I know what I want I want it yesterday I’m so inpatient lol

Yvonne1988 Sat 06-Jul-19 14:16:31

I am so impatient but I think that's cos the first time it happened right away

PeanutButter19 Sat 06-Jul-19 18:05:26

Well this will be our first so I’m hoping it won’t take too long I was hoping for a summer baby 🙈

CrazyFooLady Sat 06-Jul-19 18:28:12

Came off the pill 4 weeks ago (cerezette) no withdrawal bleed or period...... however I got a very faint positive test on weds... along with very sore boobs and hellish nausea.
Still think I'm imagining it all tho x

Yvonne1988 Sat 06-Jul-19 18:57:01

If I haven't had a period before Saturday I'm gonna take another test. Then just leave it until i convince myself again.
