Trying to conceive

i came off the pill 7 weeks ago. I stopped taking it mid pack, had a withdrawAl bleed 3 days later and have been fine since but still haven't had a proper period. I know it's early days but can anyone recommend anything that has worked to kickstart ovulation/period after coming off the pill?

I've had a similar problem. Came off cilest pill end of August, had my usual withdrawal bleed and then nothing for 8 weeks. Finally got my AF on CD60. Currently in CD32 of my second cycle and no OV or AF yet. I've not been taking anything to kickstart things but I've read a lot of women rave about Angus castus. Also I know your Gp can prescribe a progesterone tablet (called provera I think) to get things going if you have been waiting a long time for your period. How old are you and how long were you on the pill? Also what were your periods like pre-pill? Xx

Thank you for your reply!
Im 35 and I was on the pill for ten years. My periods were always regular before I started taking it xx

My doctor said to me that a 21 year old your ovaries would snap back into action immediately ince stopping the pill but when your in your 30's it takes a bit longer to start working again. I'm sure your periods will get back to normal eventually then, just gotta give it a bit more time xxx
