Trying to conceive

so new to all this but looking for some advice!
Me and hubby decided to try and conceive and came off pill in January....i have been following ovulation days and tried the days before and on ovulation day. Now 6 days past ovulation and suffering from bad headaches, cramping with a heavy feeling in stomach, more gassy, needing a wee more and sore breasts!
Thinking maybe it could be too early since only being off the pill but there seems to be a lot of symptoms! Any thoughts appreciated

I'm kind of in the same boat - I finished my pill pack in January but I didn't track my Ovulation as I wondered if I needed my breakthrough bleed & then my first proper period before it would get into a rhythm. I've been having EXACTLY the same symptoms - nausea, bloating, cramps, banging headaches, need a wee straight after doing a wee. I didn't know if it was just my body adjusting to the lack of pill!
My period is due tomorrow so we shall see. Are you going to try a test? x

I had a withdrawal and then my Flo after that. I onkw you can get symptoms from stopping the pill but the symptoms only started after my Ovulation. How long have you been getting them?
Hmm yes been thinking about doing a test, but thinking maybe a little early?!

I haven't had a proper period yet, I just had my nice & light withdrawal and that was it! About a week, I'm so bloated it's horrendous :(
I think you can take one of those first response tests like 5 days before you would be due on. I'm just assuming it wouldn't happen that quickly (naive probably), but I wouldn't want to get my hopes up either! I downloaded an app to track my ovulation next month x

HLN18 how did you get on? Did your flo arrive?
Some of my symptoms have started to calm down and just seem to come and go now!

No it didn't, and I'm sure my bloating is getting worse! It's so uncomfortable.
I am going to get a test as I'm now 3 days late with absolutely no sign of AF starting (other than this bloat!)
12/03/2018 at 12:17
Ohh will you let me know how you get on? I’m intrigued seen as our symptoms seem to of been a like!
Fingers crossed for you
12/03/2018 at 12:29
Yeah I will do! All my other symptoms have gone, just terrible bloating! I figured it was probably from stopping the pill but seeing as I'm now 3 days late and I haven't had my usual pre-AF signs I thought I should check x

Hi HLN 18
Hope you don’t mind me asking, how did you get on? I’m due tomorrow and have no normal signs of it coming so still a waiting game

Happy to try, have you done a pregnancy test? X
18/03/2018 at 10:21
I had the exact same symptoms as you. I tested 3 days after my period was due and it came back positive, I used a boots own brand test and it came up straight away and was extremely dark. Got my fingers crossed for you all :)
18/03/2018 at 10:50
No I haven’t done one yet, today is my due day for my flow so was waiting to see if it arrived before I did one! Got slight stomach cramps this morning but fingers crossed that’s nothing!
Oh congratulations to you!! Did your symptoms die down after a week? It’s also nice to know what type of test to get, I’ve heard so many stories of what’s good or not! X

My symptoms come and go like urs have. Yesterday I felt so bloated I could hardly pull myself from the couch, today I feel normal, been on off from one day to the next
18/03/2018 at 12:04
Also when my period was due I was experiencing period pains, thought it was going to be just a normal period, nothing came tho. Still experiencing slight period pains 2 and a half weeks on
18/03/2018 at 15:55
Yeh I felt exactly the same where some days it was so bad I just couldn’t move and didn’t dare even try to put a bra on 🙈
Think I’m going to wait a couple of days to see if my period does come and if not go grab a test

Sorry Happy2try - I have been MIA. My period arrived today with full force - I'm now moping around the house with the worst cramps I've ever had! Hoping that after this first proper period I can try to do the ovulation tests. Are you going to give those a go? x
