I'm new to this whole thing so please bare with me......
I came off Cilest 5 days into my last packet, had a withdrawal bleed, no period yet though. I am having some really weird things going on with my body and kind of just want to see what other people have experienced so I don't feel all alone........
We are trying to get pregnant and I know it takes a while for everything to get back to normal, but it would be nice to hear from ladies n the same boat!

I stopped my BCP on the first pill of a new pack. took it for one day and stopped. My last "AF" started on Aug 29. I am not sure when I ovulated, but I am having these terrible symptoms... Early pregnancy ones... or PMS (I hope not)? I am 10 DPO, took an IC and BFN.... I feel alone too... because I am confused... Pregnancy? PMS? BCP? What is it!?!?!? :)

I know what you mean. Today I am getting real bad aches in my womb. I wish I knew all this stuff before I pumped hormones in my body for years. I think it will pass though..... is this your first baby you are trying for?

@Jasmine13 Yes this is the first month and first baby we are trying for. It's really hard when you have no idea what's going on in your body. I have had cramps again today... at 12 DPO and may test. Then again, I may have ovulate later than normal coming off bcp. I am hoping these cramps are not AF ones. Ahhh!! So crazy!

Tested last night with a FRER; BFN. :( Still cramping... no sign of AF.

When is AF due to arrive?
I am still feeling rubbish. Af was due yesterday and no show, but because I stopped my pill 5 days into the packet I don't know if my cycle is just confused.
I'm trying to not get obsessed with it all, but it on my mind a lot!
Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

I just had my first real AF. :( I was super sad about it, but now on to the next month!! It took 36 days from my last period/breakthrough bleed.

O no, that's it, keep looking forward! Did you monitor your ovulation and such? I am getting all caught up with that bit now. My af came 24 days after withdrawal bleed. Fingers crossed for November!

Hi ladies, I hope u don't mind me joining, I signed up to this site only half an hour ago! I'm in a similar situation to u and could really do with some advice...
So, I have just turned 30 years old and got married in August. My hubs and I decided that we wanted to start a family straight away so I stopped taking cilest pill (which I have been on for almost 14 years without any breaks) on 28th August, had my usual withdrawal bleed from the 31st Aug - 2nd sept (always been very light) and since had nothing. I am now on CD 53 (counting CD1 as first day of withdrawal bleed) and still no sign of a period, not even really had any symptoms of anything, maybe the odd dull abdo cramp, bit of lower back pain, bit cranky, the odd headache but nothing significant. No changes to boobs. Used to always get sore heavy and bigger boobs leading up to a withdrawal bleed but since xmas (still on pill) suddenly boobs shrunk and don't get sore anymore. Also started with a bit of acne 6 months ago (again while still in pill). Saw dr about both of those things but she didn't have an explanation or seem concerned. But to me that's weird that this has happened all of a sudden. My hubs and I have been having unprotected sex practically every other day since I stopped the pill. Did a preg test about 3 weeks ago b4 I went on honeymoon but That was negative. I plan to go to docs and request a blood test in a couple of weeks. I obvs have no idea wen I'm ovulating as not had AF yet.
Can it be normal to wait this long for first real AF?? Really worried that there's something wrong with my fertility or have pcos or something. Please help. Xxx
