Trying to conceive

This is my first post and I have basic knowledge of the lingo so please bear with me!
I have been taking the Cerazette/Cerelle pill for approx 8 years. I took my last pill on the 9th of June this year (2 weeks ago yesterday)
Since approx Wednesday this week, I have been feeling so sick, headaches on a daily basis, stomach cramps etc. Today I have brown spotting. I took a test yesterday (I know it was way too soon and what are the chances) it was negative.
Has anyone else experienced this when coming off of the pill? My doctor said to do a test in a couple of weeks but I’m wondering if these are just the joys of coming off the pill?!
please help! Xx

Forgot to mention sore boobs and bloating!

Yep sadly coming off all contraception can cause symptoms that mimic pregnancy ones.
I didn't have a bleed of any sorts for six weeks after coming off cerazette.
Maybe if you want to keep track just test once a week until either your first bleed or positive test whichever comes first

Thank you for your reply!
its so confusing and messing with my mind as well as feeling pretty rubbish!
I wonder how long AF will take to arrive?! It will be much easier to track!

I wwas also on Cerezette, along with various other progeserone only contraception for 15 years in total (due to endometriosis)
I came off of my pill on the 24th May and I had my AF 12th June. Which has hopefully put me back into a 28 day cycle as they were 28-43ish on the pill.
When I did come off of the pill I had very similar symptoms to you, I was even diagnosed with vertigo as I kept going extremely dizzy and feeling sick. I didn't spot though but I did get headaches and cramps.
Fingers crossed for you.

Sorry, I meant 38-43 on the pill

thanks for your reply.
its so confusing isn’t it!
have you had any luck yet?
I had had the biggest period ever and feel a lot better now, my other symptoms seem to of calmed down!
Now just left with a UTI!
hows it going with you? X

Yeah, I just want to know now. Not yet hun. I’m on cycle 2 since coming off of the pill. I know this sounds weird but I thought coming off of the pill would cause me to catch on As if you miss one they say you aren’t protected.
Ive had quite a lot of CM today so I’m hoping it’s this month. I’m 8dpo so can test with an early detection one on Thursday 😳
ohh no, painful

Omg that’s exciting!
You goinf to do it on thursday then or wait longer?
good luck!! Xxx

I came off cerazette after being on microgynon for 8 years and cerazette for 4 years... took 4 weeks for AF which was so heavy and painful! But I had all sorts of weird symptoms in those first few weeks.
Settled into a perfect 28 day cycle then got my BFP on 2nd month of trying... fingers crossed all goes smoothly for you both!
The first 8 weeks I did feel all over the place and like I didn't know what was going on with my body... but now I'm happily 16 weeks, 5 days pregnant :)
I’m going to test Thursday with a CBED (Clear Blue Early Detection) test and if it’s a BFN I’m going to wait until Monday. We are at a wedding Saturday so I dont want to ruin my weekend by testing again and stressing myself out. I’m such a worrier.
I would get a BBT thermometer too. Mine was £3.50 from Amazon. I had no idea when I would be ovulating due to sporadic periods but this helped. Ovulation tests are really hot and miss and hard to read xx
