Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

I am normally like clock work and have recently (last month) come of the contraceptive patch (Evra) and this month there is no sign of my period. I am currently 5 days late and have taken two CB pregnancy tests but they were both BFN
This morning I had a slight brown discharge like I was going to start my period but nothing alday. Could this be the start of my monthly cycle and something more positive?
Any advise would really help me xx

The trouble with 'hormonal contraception' is that they largely control your body's rhythm - you take the contraception for typically 21 days & then have a withdrawal bleed in the 7days you don't take it. Once you stop taking the contraception completely it can take time for your body to adjust & accept that the supplemented hormone is no longer present & thus regain its own natural rhythm. This may mean some periods are lighter, some are heavier, some happen sooner & some happen later. If you are concerned about what is happening then talk to your Dr.

I am in the same boat came of pill july had withdrawal bleed, and started ttc august as my period didnt come got impatient lol, havent had a period since had on and off spotting and at some points was expecting to come on but didnt, still had negatives including on ov tests, my doctor is sending me for a blood test to see if i am still working should be im only 23!
My partner things im pregnant because i am bloated looking which is not normal for me unless i am putting on weight coming off pill.
I hope this has helped u and if u have any advice u can share as it difficult to know when u come off the pill what is normal, good luck!!

Mother pig, have you not had a period at all yet since stopping the pill (apart from withrawl bleed)? What cycle day are you up to now then? I am only asking as I too had a very long first cycle off the pill...was your Dr helpful? I am reluctant to go as I didn't think they would help until we've been TTC at least 6 months?
