hi, i just wonder'd if any other ladies have try'd to concive after taking the mini pill cerazette ?

call me greedy but im a happy married mummy to 6 and i would love a 7th !
i breast feed all my children for 6 months and after my last DD when i stopped feeding her i went on the combined pill but for some reason ( age ??) it didnt agree with me any more , so i went on the mini pill cerazette for the last 6 months with NO MP at all !
iv read some awfull things about women trying to concive for years after taking this mini pill , and just wonder'd if any body has any positve stories to tell?

I waited until after my first period before trying to conceive: i hadn't had a period for about 10 years so wanted to make sure things were working properly. It then took a couple of months to get pregnant. Just try not to read any horror stories about coming off this pill: they're quite demoralising and it's unnecessary to worry yourself. I had no problems at all. Good luck smile

Here's some hope for you....

I got pregnant on Cerazette !! I had been taking it for over a year (previously was on Microgynon for 10 years prior to that).

I missed a few here and there over Xmas...didnt think anything of it...then found out I was 15 weeks pregnant in March.

When I told my midwife about how shocked I was by the pregnancy...she said "Are you on Cerazette", then told me its the one pill that seems to cause the most shock pregnancies.

Hi. Glad I found this post, hope it's still active... Ok briefly I've been on cerazette for over ten years, got married in April and came off pill on 30/4/14 - so far no period, as I'm 40 and very overweight I'm really worried about my fertility. Before getting married I spoke to my gp about wanting to try (I've no kids yet), and he said he wouldn't be too happy because of the medical risks and post pg weight gain, so nervous about going to him... Four weeks no pg, did a pg test which came up neg... Any advice pls?

Oh should add - no periods whilst on cerazette

I don't know what the research is but I can only give you my experience.

Came off Cerazette after years and years on it, no period either because I was pregnant 3 weeks later smile And I was 39, nearly 40 then so nearly the same age as you.

Have you done a pregnancy test?????

Bomber1313 Tue 27-May-14 22:45:53

I did one the morning of Eurovision which came up negative...

I got pregnant whilst taking cerazette !

I stopped taking cerazette on the 1st Jan (half way through a packet) POAS on the 16th Feb with positive result. I'm now 18 weeks smile

Hello! I know this is an old post but wondering if anyone could help! I stopped taking cerazette end of feb, I had a couple day bleed. At the beginning of march I had sex unprotected, a lot. I then had what I thought was a period 3 weeks later. It's now around 6 weeks later and I haven't had another period and 2 BFN. I didn't have very bad symptoms from stopping the pill but now they've seem to got worse. Could I be pregnant? Has anyone else been through it? Thank you :D

Bomber1313 Wed 28-May-14 15:39:06

Going to their website doesn't really help much either

Bomber1313 Mon 02-Jun-14 14:26:59

Just got back from gp after a BFN and he said he's not worried by the lack of AF and to come back in three months if they've still not come back... Three months on top of the month already - when on earth will I have a chance of getting pg sad

Bomber1313 Fri 20-Jun-14 17:34:07

AF arrived this morning!!

7 weeks 2 days after taking my last cerazette (was on them for ten years). Finally we can calculate when the fertile window is rather than trying to remember to take my temp each morning!

I took cerazette for four years and stopped on 20th May and found out yesterday that I'm 1-2 weeks pregnant! I know a lot of women talk about a hormone surge immediately after stopping the mini pill but it's not medically proven... Seems to have been the case with me though! X

Another instant pregnancy here too! Dated from the day after my last pill. DH thinks he has super sperm.

Frances79FirstTime Mon 23-Jun-14 13:06:18

Another instant pregnancy here too - stopped cerzazette 3rd April and hadn't had period for about 1.5 years while on it for 2.5 years. Waited for period, nothing came, took test on 9th May and BFP! Didn't even have a withdrawal bleed.

Went for a private early scan just to date it, but it worked out pretty much as date from day after last pill.

There are a lot of horror stories online about time to conceive after coming off it which had worried me no end - but there are lots of super quick stories too! (I'm now 10+5).

Hey everyone
I read all your posts before i came off cerazette and became worried as id been on it 6 years with no periods. Came off it and had a heavy period spot on time. Now just done a test and im pregnant! Gonna book in with docs to confirm
Ive been taking multi vits as they sat it helps!

My advice is dont stress, just have loadsa sex! Hehee

Took over 12 months for my periods to come back after Cerazette. I was quite stressed too though so could of had something to do with it!

DinoSnores Fri 15-Aug-14 18:04:23

Was on Cerazette while BFing. Stopped it to TTC & pregnant 3 months later.

Ellie2elysia Fri 15-Aug-14 20:58:08

I was on cerazette for around a year I came off my pill and fell pregnant after first period smile I'm now 38+3 with my baby boy and I am super super excited and lucky :D good luck x

skyebrooke2012 Mon 22-Sep-14 15:29:51

hey I came off my pill 2 days ago and im having a bleed will it be a period or something else? need help im confused

Bethany1611 Sun 28-Sep-14 16:24:22

I came off ceraztte 3 weeks ago to ttc number 2.. No period yet but with t first pregnancy I suffered with thrush a lot! And that is the only time I've had it! I now have suddenly got a bout of thrush? It's that a side affect of coming off the pill or an early pregnancy symptom x

Babysbums Tue 30-Sep-14 09:55:40

Came off cerazette and got a period after 3 weeks, tested ovulation straight after period and tests were high, then peak within days after period, DTD all that week, due next period today, done HPT and got negative result! We basically stuck to the days tested positive for ovulation and didn't really think it any addition to try other time maybe twice randomly (for fun), is it possible I ovulated at a different time of the month and missed the window??
