I came off my mini pill on 14th July, I still haven't had a bleed but I've had all sorts of "period" type symptoms- a migraine, awful cramps, sore boobs, etc
One night the cramps were so sore they kept me awake most of the night.
I had some mucusy discharge so we DTD twice just to see what happened, that was 27th and 28th July.
I had a couple of days of no pain, then a day of pain and now I feel ok again. Just slight twinges.
Today I randomly tried an ovulation stick and it said im not ovulating but I don't know how reliable they are.

I will also be likely having a CS as my first baby was an emergency c section. She was born in 2016.
When I had her I came off the pill and got pregnant straight away- but that wasn't the mini pill.

I'm feeling very confused and unsure about what's going on with my body now......

hey @HappyGirl86 Yes please - looks like we have found each other. Course you can join.
What mini pill where you using?
Have you taken a pregnancy test?

Sounds like your system is still trying to adjust - i am due my AF in a couple of days which is why i wanted to come off before then so i get a month to normalise things - i think i still ovulate with this pill though bcos i do get the mucus discharge - i have ordered some ovulation sticks

I have to take the pill till Tuesday because we are not going to get a chance to get any condoms before then (when we do our weekly shop) incase we dtd i need to be as close as possible to the school holiday 2020

@HappyGirl86 my first was EMCS, i tried natural with my second and still ended up with an EMCS due to no progression.

This time round i am going straight in for an elective CS - not going down the EMCS route

Lovely to find a buddy!
It's only been a week today since we DTD so it's too soon to test? I'm not good at all this stuff!
Last time I got pregnant the first months trying, I was so lucky.

Luxoire Fri 02-Aug-19 14:44:05

@HappyGirl86 you my dear lady could be one very fertile woman and could be preggers this time round! you are right it is too soon to take test, but fingers crossed for you x

HappyGirl86 Fri 02-Aug-19 15:13:57

It's frustrating because on the last pill I had a withdrawal bleed almost immediately, whereas this time it will be 3 weeks on Sunday and still haven't had one.
I do like the mini pill though because I never got periods!
Have you always taken the mini pill each time you went back on to contraception?

Luxoire Mon 05-Aug-19 13:24:31

@HappyGirl86 yeah i was too big for anything else doc said and i didnt particular want the implant so yes i have been on the minipill form 18 (different types/brands/hormones over the years) but always the mini pill.
and I have always had periods...but my cycle lengths varies from month to month and the length of the period varies form month to month too but I have always have a period

HappyGirl86 Mon 05-Aug-19 16:21:05

I've finally got my period wooohooo never thought I'd be celebrating that haha

Luxoire Mon 05-Aug-19 16:49:04

@HappyGirl86 ahahahahah THAT MADE ME LAUGH!! i am genuinely pleased for you./ i am having, i needed that xxxx thank you and thank you to your period too

Hi girls
Here's my story
Came off mini pill 25/06/19
Had first withdrawal period/AF after 33 days so am now CD10 and potentially a few days from ovulation and DTD. I was on cerelle if anyone has experience of that never had bleeding on it.

Destiny25 Mon 05-Aug-19 17:25:07


Can I join too?

My story is more complicated,

Feb 2019 conceived a baby boy sadly lost him at 20 weeks, went on the pill straight away, 4 days later got the implant, stopped the pill and also got the implant out 2 weeks later.

Thursday 25th I got my bleed after having the implant out less than 24hours, and then had half a day bleeding on Friday the 3rd but nothing since.

Hoping to catch on straight away as I feel I'm ready again although I don't think it'll happen.

I have a 5 year old son already so a summer baby would be really good!

Good luck and fingers crossed to you both.

HappyGirl86 Mon 05-Aug-19 18:15:21

Hi Wannabe, that's the same pill that I have been taking.
Sounds like you are a little ahead of me, I'm only on calendar Day 2.
Have you got any other children?

Hi Destiny,
I'm so sorry for your loss, that must have been horrible for you.
I hope this time things are different for you.
How are you feeling about it all?

HappyGirl86 Mon 05-Aug-19 18:17:46

@Luxoire I'm glad I can be of some entertainment haha! Hope you are ok??

Luxoire Mon 05-Aug-19 20:04:59

@Destiny25 I am really Sorry for your loss darling...hoping yoh cath real soon as you soolund so ready for your little bundle of joy. Hugs. Xxx

@wannabemum38 Ohh well not far now foe ovulation for you...i'd try to DTD if possble 2 days before ovulation abd then ovulation day itself and 2 days later hahaha just to cover all bases lol Hahahahah are you tracking youe ovulation? Xx

Luxoire Mon 05-Aug-19 20:07:18

@HappyGirl86 girl I am stressed...not sure whether i am going or coming atm abd I am on too which doesnt help my mood...and all in all...i hoped I'd be off the pill by trying to gear myself up for the conversation tomorrow night and come to terms with the fact I may not be gwtting my third after all

Destiny25 Mon 05-Aug-19 20:17:28

I have been struggling with it all and confused to what I wanted hence the jumping straight on and off contraception but I realised this is really what I want.
I keep thinking I'm having pregnancy symptoms but apparently you have them coming off the implant, not sure how much it would effect me only having it in for 2 weeks

How is everyone else feeling?

Luxoire Mon 05-Aug-19 21:07:22

@Destiny25 my ovulation symptoms are like pregnancy aore breasts...weird appetities..are you tracking your ovulation? Maybe you should and then try to dtd around the right time. If we do decide to go ahead I will be doing this Oct/Nov which is when i relly pray for a BFP

wannabemum38 Mon 05-Aug-19 21:15:38

@HappyGirl86 no this is my first and I'm 38 so fully prepared for it taking a while.

@Luxoire Yes I'm going to start POAS got some cheapie ovulation tests from eBay to see if I'm actually ovulating. My DP and I won't be seeing each other until Saturday which is when according to Ovia I will be at peak ovulating time but will certainly be DTD as often as possible over the weekend lol

Luxoire Mon 05-Aug-19 21:57:04

@Wannabemum38 I will be rooting for you!! Keep an eye on the ovulation sticks and get as much sperm inside you as possible lol

MrsSkr Mon 05-Aug-19 22:35:39

Hi Ladies can I join in as you sound like your on the exact same plan (hopefully) as me (apart from the pill part)

I am having my mirena coil removed on Monday but hope to get our bfp Oct/Nov time too for a summer 2020 baby. But tbh I'm just tooooo excited. Because I know I'm getting it out on Monday, in my head we are trying but I know we arnt yet. I really dont want to fall pregnant much before Oct as we have a holiday booked for next April and I dont want to risk being too close to that but I'm too excited. grin grin
