Hi I’m new to this and just wanted some advice! I came off Cerazette about 3.5 weeks ago because we are TTC.. about 2/3 days after coming off the pill I had a very light brown discharge wouldn’t even say it was a bleed and then I’m pretty sure last week I ovulated and me and my partner have had sex pretty much every day since coming off the pill.. could I be pregnant yet or do I have to just wait for a normal period?😣 Thanks
Your discharge will be your withdrawal bleed. It's different for everyone. Mine was very heavy and lasted for 4 days, but it's not uncommon for it to be lighter and shorter.
If you ovulated (how are you checking this?) then yes, there's a chance you could be pregnant. Keep an eye out for symptoms though, as many of the pill withdrawal side effects are almost identical to pregnancy symptoms. Try not to test until 2 weeks after you think you ovulated, preferably with a First Response early response test.
I was one of the lucky ones and I got pregnant my second month off Cerazette, having been on it for 6 years, and on BC pills for 10.
When I came off cerazette I had a similar "bleed" as you. 3 weeks after I stopped taking it. Literally as I went to the toilet I have 1 day of like brown streaked CM nothing if class as a bleed at all. I literally mean as I wiped I noticed but not even enough to need a liner.
Then 4 weeks later my period never came and in now 35 weeks pregnant. Cerazette was the best one for me when coming off it. As I felt my cycles returned pretty quickly. Good luck hun. X
I was on cerazette for YEARS since I was 15, I'm now 27. I came off on Christmas eve just gone, I had a withdrawal bleed in January and then a short "period" in Feb but I then conceived and am currently 17 weeks pregnant. I have heard of people not even having a withdrawal bleed from this pill and being pregnant, so you cant really judge from others experiences. I would think though that people who took a while after, will have taken that long regardless of the pill. That was the advice of my DR anyway.
I came off cerzette after 5 years of not having a period in Jan and conceived in April.
Between then I didn't have any withdrawal bleeds and actually confused what could have been an ovulation bleed with a period. Delighted when I found out I was 9 weeks instead of the 5 I had suspected when the test was positive.
I didn't have withdrawal bleed, just ovulated 2 weeks after stopping. Then got my period 2 weeks after that. I then got pregnant. This was both pregnancies. Also got pregnant whilst on cerezette but that's another story!
Stephisaur - I was doing ovulation tests I got 1 back positive at the same time as I had egg white discharge and felt really ‘frisky’ 😂.. so I assumed this could be ovulation? I hope it will happen quickly for us as I was only on the pill 1 month then came off it.
Thanks everyone for the replies or really helps hearing from others xx
Hi everyone just an update and some advice please? 🙈.. so about a month after my withdrawal bleed last night I had a tiny bit of spotting and this morning the same only when I wipe, very light brown. Is this the start of my normal period or could I be pregnant? It’s too soon to check I think xx
Just another update and some advice! I had brown blood, very light on and off for about 3 days.. just enough for a liner. Now the bleeding has stopped and tonight I’m getting cramps very low down.. on and off is this just part of the period because it was very light? Thanks
