Hi all,
I stopped taking cerazette 6 weeks ago, no bleed of any kind and 2 negative pregnancy tests. Very confused as last time we ttc, I had a period about 10 days after stopping the pill.
Anyone had anything similar happen?

I was on cerelle which is just a different name for cerazette I think. Came off on 7th December had a withdrawal bleed a few days later. Didn't actually get a proper period until 19th January. I sent myself insane with the "pregnancy symptoms" which really were just hormones going wild. I was so disappointed when I got my period but thinking back I'm actually just relieved to have a proper cycle so I can track properly!

Hey, came off Cerezette early December and had withdrawal bleed 9th December. Nothing since and loads of BFNs. Day 62 now, getting down about it all. Been to the docs and they are doing a blood test next week to check thyroid levels as it runs in my family. Also going for an ultrasound to check everything out as when I was 15, I didn't have a period for 5 months. I just want to know everything is working down there!

Hey. When I came off cerazette last August, it took 5 weeks for my first period to come. I have read on here that it can vary a lot though.

I came off the mini pill mid January and besides a bit of spotting for 2 days just after I came off the pill I've had nadda. I think a withdrawal bleed is meant to be a bit heavier than spotting so I am not sure what was going on there! I just want my body to get back to normal...I never thought I would be looking forward to af!

Hope you don't mind me jumping on this thread with you ladies.
I stopped cerelle after a week or so of half arsing it.
Stopped 20th November just after after our 1st wedding anniversary.
Had a withdrawal bleed few days later for 4 days. Then had nothing at all December... then a real proper period January... so far this month nothing.
My cycles are all over, finally gotten my head around opks I think! But a tad worried I pray my cycles won't stay at currently CD 36 😔

After 5 weeks of waiting af finally arrived! I had forgotten this feeling...ouch! I am fully expecting my periods to be all over the place like they were before the pill but at least I know something is happening I guess.

I stopped take the pill on the 19th Dec and got a light period, so probably a withdrawal bleed exactly 4 weeks later on the 16th Jan. I m another 4 weeks on and even though I’ve been feeling nauseous and have had stomach pains, I’m yet to see a period. I think having a bleed 4 weeks after coming off the pill got my hopes up that I would be regular.

I think it varies. I came off ages ago so ot didn't matter, as I wasn't planning to TTC instantly. It took 2-3 weeks for my withdrawal bleed and then my periods were regular after that. I did expect it to take longer than that.

My period has arrived, so withdrawal bleed was 28 days after stopping pill and my first period was 32 days after that.

Claira78 Mon 17-Feb-20 10:37:11

Mine has arrived too! 7 weeks after stopping the pill.

I’m definitely feeling some pain tonight too.

How is everyone? I’m on cd11 today and just started using clear blue ovulation tests.

vegisaurus Thu 27-Feb-20 21:09:57

I'm on CD15 and no sign of ovulation yet...I've had slightly sore boobs the last couple of days which is a little strange but I am not sure whether that is related to anything.

1987Nic Thu 27-Feb-20 21:37:18

Good to know there’s someone on a cd close to mine. I had really sore boobs after coming off the pill but don’t seem to get many ovulation symptoms. Are you using ovulation tests?, I’ve just started using clear blue today.

rooarsome Thu 27-Feb-20 22:15:18

I came off it in November, didn't really have a withdrawal bleed but had a very heavy period in January which lasted 7 days. I've had nothing since! Does it take a while for a regular rhythm to start up again? Before taking it I was regular as clockwork

vegisaurus Thu 27-Feb-20 22:54:34

@1987Nic I have been using some cheap tests from Amazon the last few days but they are all negative so far. I had quite irregular cycles before the pill so fully expecting that to be the case again!

1987Nic Thu 27-Feb-20 23:04:04

I’ve only been off since December and have had a light period after 28 days and another normal period after 32 days. I hadn’t had a period for around 10 years since starting the pill. It’s horrible not knowing when to expect periods next.

1987Nic Thu 27-Feb-20 23:06:02

My test was also negative today but think it might still be too early. Let’s hope we both see some signs of ovulation very soon.

vegisaurus Fri 28-Feb-20 18:48:43

I had a stronger (still negative) test today so hopefully it will be soon.
I had no period for 10 years on the pill, I feel like a teenager again getting to know my own body!

1987Nic Fri 28-Feb-20 19:40:42

Sounds like we’ve both been without periods for the same time. I had almost no libido when being on the pill so I’m glad it’s making a come back ha. blush

I came off cerazette on Sunday, had mild cramping, but no bleeding or spotting yet. In a very odd way, I'm almost looking forward to it (but not the pain!). I havent had a period in years since being on cerazette. I want to be able to start tracking!

1987Nic Fri 28-Feb-20 19:50:43

Welcome to the groupsmile I had some really sore nipples and a heavy feeling in my stomach after coming off the pill. Hopefully it won’t be too long for your withdrawal bleed, mine took 28 days, I was at work when it happened and totally over shared with my work friends as I was super happy.
