Cooking off the pill and late periods

Hi, I’m feeling stressed and wanted people thoughts. I stopped the combined bill (ovranett) at the start of August at the end of the that pack. I had my withdrawal bleed then 30 days later had a period. A week prior to he period I had been to gp due to abdominal cramps/ period pain with no period and pain during sex. Cramping. She referred for an ultrasound and said if not started my period in a week to do pregnancy test and if negative come back. Well I did a home pregnancy test- negative and then period started so I didn’t go back, I didn’t go to the ultrasound as pain had gone, gp advised to leave it. Now I’m awaiting my next period, it’s 45 days since last period and for the last week I’ve had shooting pain/cramps like period pains but again no period and sometimes at night waking me and I’m worried what’s going on. Took at pregnancy test a week ago and negative. I have some PMS symptoms- mood swings/ crying and increased toilet needs. I’m regretting not taking the ultrasound and worried that it might be endometriosis and how that might affect us trying to conceive. I have gp telephone appointment next Tuesday but that wasn’t to do with this- though I’ll raise it. I’m also scared about an internal examination of gp wants to do this, which I know I need to get over. The stress and worry isn’t helping things. What are people’s experiences coming off the pill, anyone experienced cramping like this for 5/6 days, Thank you

How disappointing. I thought this thread was going to be about how stopping the pill had reawoken your taste buds and you now have a burning desire to be a chef grin

In all seriousness, it sounds normal. Your body will be in total flux after coming off a long course of synthetic hormones and it's only been a couple of months. Worth having an internal examination done though if offered, they're really fine. Much less painful or invasive than a smear test!

I’m sorry to disappoint 😂 i clicked publish instead of preview and it won’t let me change it 😢

Thanks for the advice. I will book to go see gp and get an examination. I’m hoping it is just that, I’m a bit of a worrier and the more you read online the more you come away with fears.
