Trying to conceive

Hello ladies! I'm new to this so need a bit of help or advice. I came off the pill mid December. Me and my boyfriend did the deed on 3rd January, had my period the next day! Bled from 4th till 6th, then on the 9th I just had this red/brownish spotting. Well, it was just one discharge at the time, didn't spot or bleed before or after that day. And that was it. Could it have been an implantation bleed? It would have been the 6th day after conception, and i understand that implantation bleed happens from 6-12 days after conception? Maybe anyone have had a similar experience and had a bfp after it? Any help would be appreciated, thank you xx

Also would it be too early to test now?

Hi grinch... it’s unlikely to be implantation spotting as you probably would not have ovulated that soon. In a normal cycle you can expect to ovulate approx 14days before the start of your next period... so if your cycles are 28 days, it would be around day14 that you ovulate, 30 days would mean ov around day 16 Etc etc.
If your period started on Jan 4th that means you are probably going to ovulate a couple weeks after that... it completely depends on how long your cycles are but it’s very unlikely that you would ovulate at the same time as your period... for that to be the case you would have extremely short cycles (like 15 days or so).
It may be difficult for you to predict ovulation right now as your cycles may be messed up for a few months as the contraceptive hormones work their way out of your body. You will more than likely ovulate, you just won’t be able to know for sure based on date calculations. I would recommend getting some OPK’s and testing every day until you get your positive. You will then know you will ovulate the day after that.
Once your cycles settle down into a regular pattern then you can start to better predict when you are likely to ovulate and jusg use the OPKS for confirmation.

Thank you for the reply! So my cycles were 28 days when I was on the pill, my period on the 4th came on the exact day as it would if i was still on the pill. So if it stays regular technically I should get it on the 1st. But I have also sensitive nipples, and that's a bit too early to get tender nipples before a period - 10 days before, I keep thinking I might be pregnant. I know I couldnt have ovulated right before my period. But then I keep reading after coming off the pill you can ovulate at any time. What do you think...? Any more advice? Or all I can do now is wait till the 1st and see? x

Yep you’ll just need to wait and test.

This is normal to have to bleed after a period. You just don't need to stop in this condition. Don't worry much about this. Just try to conceive. You can get positive results soon. You need to visit your doctor right now. Explain every possible information you know about your self from which your body is going through. I am very much impressed with you, You are sharing your conditions pretty well. This will help young people understand the basics of the problems. Don't stop try hard and give proper time
