Trying to conceive

Hello lovely ladies,
Im afraid this is a shameless whinge.
i stopped cerazette about four weeks ago and since have been quite hormonal and bloated with quite strong cramps and general pelvic pain. My bowel seems to have slowed right down too which isn't helping. I seriously look about five months pregnant. I'm completely exhausted and tearful/aggressive. No doubt making my husband and sons lives all the more 'joyful'.
I just wish af would arrive so I would feel less horrible.

Have you tested? I mean is there any chance u could actually be pg? X

Thanks lh. No there's no chance.
We have used condoms every time.
I don't even want to start actively ttc for a couple months but wish I didn't feel so horrible. I did bleed for about four weeks 3 months ago whilst on cerazette so had a feeling it was not working so well and hence that period would come back quite quickly. (Again we always use condoms even when on the pill as just couldn't face a bfp so soon after having a difficult pregnancy).

Bless it'll I guess there's no telling how long it'll take to get back to normal. Wen I came off femodene I went straight on to a 5 week cycle. Fingers crossed it happens soon! X

Oh Tuliprose, there's no shame in your feelings. I breastfed Hannah for 18mths & still haven't gotten my natural rhythm back yet so that I too have moments where I almost want to scream (& drive DH slightly bonkers) trying to determine exactly when AF is going to show up - 'I'm due on this week hon', 'Oops, sorry, a few days later than expected', 'Oh sorry, I've come on early this month' - all the PMT is up the chute too with cramps, mood swings & hot flushes all over the place (if I didn't know better I'd think I was menopausal). The joys of womanhood.
