Trying to conceive

Hi All, I'm new on here so sorry if this has already been discussed but I couldn't find any new theads and wondered if anyone is having a similar problem at the moment.
We're TTC for No1 and its only the first month. We have been taking Pregnacare Conception for 2 months now and I have always been very regular with a 26 day cycle. I thought I'd read up on my OV days etc so BD on days 10-14. 10 days later I had the worst cramp ever and thought / hoped it could be implantation cramps but assumed it was AF.
I am now 3 days over due and BFN on HPT. I've read loads that Pregnacare can delay your period but I had a docs app yesterday (for something else) and she said she had never heard of that and to wait another week before testing.
Although I know that I'd be very lucky on my first month TTC, I want to do a test every day! I had spotting once on the day I should have come on and now I feel like AF is coming so guess i'll have to wait.
Has anyone else had this problem with Pregnare? I'm going to stop taking it for a couple of months to see if they go back to normal.

Hey sweety - I took pregnacare conception and come to think of it my periods did go all over the place! Never made the link though - I just assumed it was my body playing silly because I was ttc.
If you aren't lucky this month and AF does arrive - it could be useful to chart maybe so you know when you OV? YOu could look for signs using your CM - that's what I do as my AF is now irregular after having my ds.

I took pregnacare for a couple of months before I came off the pill. My periods started a month after I stopped taking the pill and were bang on 28 days until I became pregnant, so pregnacare didn't mess me up! It has been linked with big birth weight though, and my little one was 9lb 12oz!
I took my last pill end of July and conceived mid Dec so it did take us a few months, and it was the month I stopped thinking about getting pregnant that it happened! If you do stop taking pregnacare, make sure you still take some form of folic acid, I've just read that ASDA pharmacies are giving away 3 months free to pregnant / ttc ladies!

Funny you should say that Tigerlily about birth weight cos my Logan was dead tiny lol!!
I think that ttc just does funny things to some of us.

Thank you for your replies - I guess like everything it seems to be so different for everyone. It just seemed such a coincidence that my cycle changed as soon as I took Prgnacare and that was a month before we were TTC, so I didn't think I was worrying or stressing.
I'm defintiely going to stop taking them to see if it goes back to normal but will definitely get myself some Folic Acid today - I'll check out ASDA, thanks for the tip Tigerlily. And I'll start keeping a closer eye on my CM. Nice.
Still 4 days over due but feel like AF is coming, I'll wait another few days before doing another HPT.
Thanks again xx

Hello, both me and my partner took pregnacare conception and I got pregnant within the first month of having my inplant out. We started taking it a couple of months before I had my inplant out.

AF has arrived! But I have got some 'Sanatogen mother to be + OMEGA 3' tablets to take instead of the Pregnacare so I'll see how it goes x

OMG I jsut totally realised that I didn't use pregnacare hahah!!! I used Sanatogn mother to be + OMEGA 3!!!! I am such a dope!!

Ha! Oh no, well hopefully they won't do the same as Pregnacare for me.

Intersting reading these comments. I am 18 days late for my period and started taking Pregnacare 3 weeks ago so maybe there is a link and I should try something like the Sanatogen.

I'm having a nightmare! After I came off the pill I bled for 3 weeks straight. I started taking Pregnacare when I stopped bleeding and now I'm possibly 3 days late as it was all up in the air in the first place. I'm completely lost at the moment. Just wanted it to start so I can start counting my days properly. I've done two tests which were both negative, so I'm definitely not pg. This link has definitely been a bit of an eye opener. I've had tender boobs and sometimes the feeling that numbing/cramping feelings, but nothing...driving me nuts! (Sorry, rant over)

i was on the pill for 14 years after my first child. so me and my husband (no 2) are now trying for his 1st baby and my second one. also note i am almost 37 now. I had a misscarage last year end of Sept. And we've been trying now again. But still no luck. yesterday I start taking pregnacare conception.... lets hope its going to work. I will give it a try for 2 months if theres nothing then I am sure it is not ment to be. please let me know if anyone knows if this is going to work. Also the dr said its because of being on the pill for so many years that making ttc so difficult. so lets hope for the best. Can't wait to have my bump
