Hi I'll try keep this short.

Stopped my mini pill ( cerelle ) progesterone only on 30th may had possible w/d or even af 2 days later,

On around the 13th of June I had the following symptoms

• very bloated
• starving
• clear CM
• diarrhoea
• stomach cramps I though af was about to come

24th June dtd with OH after I wiped tmi I had some pinkish/brownish spotting.

Around 2 days later tingling sensations on side of boobs and tugging pain going to my armpits, I still had uterus pain.
Nipples extremely sore and erect. ( they're never erect )

Took a cheap hpt afternoon urine on the 1st July bfn

Anyway from Monday 4th July my symptoms have gotten worse.

• boobs are bigger ( skin tight on sides )
• nipples still erect but not sore
• areola massive and darker with lots of glands on them
• protruding veins going through my nipples
and veins in side
•Lots and lots of white CM when I wipe
•Flu symptoms
• feeling sick
• very hot flushes I had to sleep with a fan on and I'm usually freezing.
• headaches
• so tired
• loss of appetite
• vivid dreams the last 2 nights dreamt I was pregnant
• af type pains but not bad
• metallic taste and extra Saliva
• started crying 3 days ago

I'm taking a test on Friday. FMU

I understand the pill can mess up your system but surely to god my boobs wouldn't be getting bigger and areola massive lol

I'm praying I am.

I've heard stopping the pill can make you ovulate and become more fertile ??

Anyone please any advise I feel like I'm going crazy xx

Hi, didn't want to read and run.

I fell pregnant with DD first attempt after coming off the mini pill. You're definitely more fertile the first cycle! The only symptom I had were extremely sore (.)(.) I only took a test by chance as had no withdrawal bleed or anything!

From what I've heard/seen the pill can muck up your cycles for up to 6months. When I came off the pill ttc#2 I had EVERY pg symptom possible before I finally got a bleed 6weeks after taking my last pill.

I know I've not been much help blush but would say test on friday and if bfn wait another week and test again (if you can hold out that long smile)

FX for you x

yep my sis did with twins


Sarah1087 Wed 06-Jul-16 17:49:07

Hi girls

Thanks so much for your replys

My sister-in-law has suggested same, Friday and if bfn give it 7 more days.

Lots of people have been saying not a chance and it'll be hormones leaving my system. Just with increase in my boobs I know something isn't right.

Fingers crossed and thank you so much xx

I'm 36, ate crap, drank and smoked for years.

Was knocked for six as I thought it would take ages.

Sarah1087 Wed 06-Jul-16 19:09:06

Haha that made me laugh.

And that's brilliant Pandora.

I'm hoping these are sign of a little bean :-) xx

Not straight away but then I wasn't TTC. I came off the mini pill, didn't have a withdrawal bleed, had a period a month later then a period a month after that. Slight error with condom and fell pregnant, had been off the pill for three months and my cycle was immediately regular. So it doesn't mess with everyone's cycles smile Good luck

Sarah1087 Wed 06-Jul-16 20:13:02

Hi Dixie chick

Congratulations 🤗🤗
I'm hoping I am. Currently at work browsing the net for symptoms lol while constantly swallowing cos I feel I have loads of saliva. Xx

Jjspoon Wed 06-Jul-16 20:23:16

I stopped taking it 6 weeks before getting pregnant smile. Thought I would take ages too but obviously not. A few weeks after stopping I convinced myself I was pregnant though as I had sore boobs, mood swings, bloating etc but turned out to just be pmt symptoms whereas now I'm pregnant I have no symptoms at all lol but fx for you, it can happen x

Blacksheep78 Wed 06-Jul-16 20:38:58

I am one of the lucky ones too. First week off the pill I fell with DS1. Started TTC DD when DS1 was almost 13months. (no pill as I was BF) There is 21months between them. DS2 was also conceived within the first month of stopping the pill.

Fertile family, as my sister also conceived immediately with her twins, and then again with DS.

stripeyorangesocks71 Thu 07-Jul-16 08:23:51

Yes can safely say I managed to conceive in the first week I'd stopped taking the pill! Very surprised and shocked as thought it would take ages (well at least a couple of months!!) after being on the pill for years!

goodenoughmum88 Thu 07-Jul-16 08:27:52

Yup here too. Stopped pill at start of May, baby the following feb. good luck!

Rainshowers Thu 07-Jul-16 08:33:34

Yep, I stopped the pill in May, no period. Got to August, still no period. Took a test as I was going for a blood test the following day and thought they might ask. Positive test, and baby arrived in April.

However I had zero symptoms (except for funny looking boobs), and really thought it'd take months.

RaeSkywalker Thu 07-Jul-16 08:36:32

This happened to my friend! Her daughter is 3 now, and I think she's still getting over her surprise at how quickly it happened. Fingers crossed for you, but please don't panic if you aren't- I know that's easier said than done though!

Sarah1087 Thu 07-Jul-16 09:13:11

Thanks girls

It's lovely to hear about yours or friends experiences.

I don't feel as pregnant today lol if that makes sense.

Although boobs still same
My cm is white and watery too when I did my cp check this morning. Unsure what that means.

beccasfirstbump Thu 07-Jul-16 10:42:10

I did! And I am.

It was a total shock after almost 8 years of being on Qlaira I had to stop to see if it would help my migraines (it didn't it made them worse) at the same time OH and I were moving house and under a lot of stress, not to mention the fact that I struggle with anorexia and there had been talks about be going into the inpatient unit to put on some weight. So OH and I moved into the new house were drinking and partying quite a bit with friends to celebrate and I noticed I didn't get my first withdrawal bleed, plus my boobs seemed to have got bigger almost overnight (OH wasn't complaining) I had this nagging feeling that I could be pregnant but kept telling myself it would be impossible because of my lifestyle it must just be down to stress, I bought a cheap test when I was doing the shop anyway and it came back negative.... Then a two weeks went by and I literally felt like I was ballooning and I kept expecting a period, my boobs hurt and then I cried at an advert for Save the Children (I have never in my life done that) so I did test number 2 and pretty much passed out.
I'm now nearly 4 months pregnant! The baby is really healthy and despite a few tears from me about not being ready able to cope e.t.c I think both of us are starting to look forward to it. I never expected it to happen that quick!

Sarah1087 Thu 07-Jul-16 11:05:31

Hi becca

That's amazing. A massive congratulations Hun. It's giving me hope reading all these lovely messages. How far gone was you when you got your bfp ? Xx

Jeanniejampots80 Thu 07-Jul-16 12:59:16

Both times, was off pill one month about to "start trying" and boom pregnant, Very very lucky obviosuly and said to OH that we will be using double protection until the menopause now smile

Sarah1087 Thu 07-Jul-16 17:37:06

Haha jeannie grin

I have some slight cramping in my uterus area which has been going on and off through day. Not been feeling as sick either, boobs still sore. Keep moving up and down to check lol

Hoping I am I'm on cycle day 38.

I have been told though some women don't even experience normal pregnancy symptoms until around 7 weeks xx

user1467296110 Thu 07-Jul-16 18:25:53

This sounds just like me!! Take an expensive test, I used the cheap paper ones when I first tested and it was negative so j just thought I was coming on.. Eventually tested again with a clear blue and was possible tube after super sore boobs, armpits and stomach cramps! Good luck x

Sarah1087 Thu 07-Jul-16 19:15:02

Hi Hun

Do you mean it was positive ? Xx

beccasfirstbump Thu 07-Jul-16 20:48:23

Hi Sara,

Thank you ☺️
I was around 5/6 weeks, I initially used just the cheapo tests then when I got the bfp I went and got one of those ones that tell you how many weeks and it said 1-2 weeks, but you add the 4 weeks. Anyway it was about right when we got a scan at 7 weeks

user1467296110 Thu 07-Jul-16 21:40:41

Not sure what I was trying to write there, but I meant yes it was positive when I tried again with a better test! smile

Sarah1087 Fri 08-Jul-16 00:00:41

Congratulations smile how far are you ?

Did you have any af type pains ? I can't sleep at min as its hurting. But my boobs are killing so bad at min and I feel like I could cry lol xx
