Hubby and I have decided to 'not actively try not to conceive' basically coming off pill and letting nature decide what happens. Been off the pill since between Xmas and new year, normal withdrawal bleed.. Now fingers crossed everything returns to normal after 8years! Just wondering how long others took to conceive or if anyone else is in this position? X
I was on Micronor for just under a year. I came off it at the end of August, had a normal period the first weekend in September (not quite sure what you mean by the normal withdrawal bleed) and then got a positive pregnancy test a month later....
One week! That's so lucky! Everyone's giving me hope, I work with several people who tried for years and years after the pill, others aren't even trying and fall pregnant! I won't start maternity clothes shopping just yet, but fingers crossed it's as quick as you all x
I came off the mini pill after being on it for about 8 years. We also thought we would let nature takes its course and were expecting it to take about a year after reading the horror stories on the internet. We are both an older couple too. Had a day of light bleeding 26 days after stopping pill, then proper period 4 days later, maybe chemical pregnancy? Then pregnant next month. Was a very big surprise!! But a lovely one too.
I'm in full baby wanting mode now. Withdrawal from the pill had me crazy! Last night I had lower back ache, sore boobs, feeling nauseated, the works! By this morning I was absolutely convinced I was pregnant. Came to my senses after a busy day at work realising it's probably nothing more than hormones
Google whatever minipill you were on cos some of them the withdrawal symptoms are actually pregnancy symptoms, I didn't know this till I looked up mine as I was freaking out not having period for so long after stopping and thought something was wrong, when I did fall preg (wasn't trying) I initially put it down to withdrawal symptoms
Being on the pill for 13 years messed up my cycle and it took 6 months to conceive first time (ended in mc) but after that it took 3 cycles for child 1 and then 2 cycles for child 2. Prepare to wait for up to a year and then if you conceive more quickly it'll be a bonus!
