Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

I came off pill last month and had my normal withdrawel bleed from pill - my husband and I are TTC. I am just waiting for my first 'normal' period and based on a 28 day cycle I am two days late .....
I have done a preg test which was negative - today ..... could it be too early still?
I either want period or a pos test - impatient ha ha ha !!
I feel sicky, crampy on and off for about a week and tired but not sure if I am either convicing muself or just period on it's way ...
Any advice from anyone in same situ?

They do say sometimes it can take a while for your body to get back to normal after coming off the pill however i fell pregnant straight after coming off mine so it is possible that you could be! i had no idea how long my cycles used to be b4 the pill as i was on it for 8 years so i waited unitl 6 days after the 'normal' 28 day cycle and tested and thats when i got a positive. Id give it a few more days and test again if still no AF you may have ovulated later meaning you'd have a longer cycle meaning the hormone wasnt enough to be picked up on a test quite yet!
fingers crossed for you, let us know how you get on x

Hi I'm in the same situation! I came off my pill 21st June and have not come on -I'm now 14 days late if going by a 28 day cycle. took a test which came back negative but had convinced myself I'm pregnant (nipples changing colour, tired, feeling sick) but maybe it's all in my head as so wanted a positive result!? I've read it can take a while for the body to adjust to normal so maybe that's it?

Some are luckier than others Ive read of women not having their first af for months after the pill. I was lucky I fell pg within a week of coming off first time and my cycle was pretty normal 2nd time, 5 weeks rather than 4 and fell pg 2nd cycle trying. Good luck all x
