Im new to this forum
wondered if anyone has any help and advice for me please...
im 24 and have been with my partner 7 and half years, we bought our first house a few months ago and are now ready to start a family!
i have been on Cilest for over 6years and finished my withdrawal bleed for the packet I was on...started a new packet on Sun, took second tablet monday then Tuesday we agreed to start trying so I stopped the pill and started taking folic acid.
i know I shouldn't really have stopped like that but seeing as it was only two tablets didn't think it would matter that much... Im too excited to carry on and finish the packet lol.
do you think ill have another withdrawal bleed after such a short time? I've bought an ovulation test kit but how long before I start using it?
your help would greatly appreciated

i really would not think two tablets would build up enough hormone to cause a bleed once stopped. you should start testing on day 10. when i took mine i gradually seen the line get darker over a day or so. but alot of people dont... they just see a positive all of a sudden. there are other ways to track ovulation... the most useful if checking your cervical mucus... when you are fertile it will be somewhat slimy and stretchy. good luck!!! xx

Thank you should I start counting from Sunday (the day which the new pack due to be started) or from yesterday, after I'd taken 2 from the new pack?

You start counting from the first day of your period...so that's cd1. Taking your temp is also a good way to track ovulation, periods etc. The ovulation sticks didn't work that well for me and on my first cycle after the pill (in Aug 13) I didn't ovulate until cd40 ish so you could potentially end up using a lot of ovulation sticks!! If you want to read more about charting your temperature have a look on fertility friend.

First time I came off the pill I ovulated within a week or 2 of cd1 and fell pg straight away, with no2 i ovulated cd24 and my first natural period was very light and only lasted just over 24 hours. The month after I ovulated cd21 and fell pg that cycle. GL xx
