Me and dh decided to ditch the pill and try for no.2
I stopped taking the pill a couple of weeks ago and had normal withdrawl bleed a couple of days later.
Is anyone else ttc after the pill, or trying for no 2, or had a BFP after stopping the pill?

Did anyone have any symptoms once stopping the pill?

Hi Beth, guess it's just you and I in the same boat! Stopped pill, had withdrawel bleed 13tt to 17th April. Now on the waiting game to test. Not sure if my cycle will go back to normal first month off but stranger things have happened! if I go by a 28 day cycle I'm due af on Tuesday xx

I'm not far off. My withdrawal bleed started 17th. And pre pill I'm a 28 day cycle too.
So I should be due the 15th I think?
I kept thinking (still think) I'm going to come on. But just cm rather than blood.
Have you had any symptoms? I've had period type pains for a a few days now... Just waiting game now. Boring!

Hey, so far my symptoms have been:
constant peeing, cramps, full feeling and pressure down there, sensitive nipples. How about you? xx

I think my af is due the 11th?

Increased discharge, bloated, cramps and shooting pains in the lady garden 😂
I tend too wee a lot anyway as I drink loads.
Will you test on the 11th? I'm guna on the 15th. Eekkk! Xx

This is my first month off bc. If I go by the first day of my withdrawal bleed this is cd 23. I have been doing opks since I stopped bleeding. All have had only the control line, until today which I got an extremely light test line. Does this mean by body is starting to wake up after bc? Havnt been bdancing much this month as wanted to get hang of my cycle and also hubby has been poorly. No idea how long cycles were before bc as on it for 10+ years. Ttc baby 1.
any help appreciated! X

I assume so? Which is good news?
I don't or haven't used them myself. But perhaps keep using them to find out?
05/05/2016 at 21:21
Yeah I'm going to keep testing and see. I havnt had too many side effects from coming off the pill so far. Mostly cramps but not much else that I have noticed! I do seem to feel much better in myself maybe psychological. Seems like we all stopped our bc around the same time so will be interesting to see how we all get on. Xx

That's good. I feel as though I'm more moody?! 😩 though ds still doesn't sleep through so that won't help at all.
Yeah 😊 I was thinking that too - interesting to see how we get on.

So here's my opk from today.. Im thinking negative still but seems darkest yet? CD 27 after pill. Got a bit emotional to DH last night just panicking about not ovulating after the pill!
08/05/2016 at 12:48
Does an opk pick up ovulation? I'm cd 27 now....ad due Tuesday if going by a 28d cycle. Took a couple tests stupidly earlier in the week but bfn with what I think is evap lines coming up after the time limit. Was peeing so much so thought I was onto a winner...turns out I've a uti! Time yet though fx ladies xx

The ovulation test picks up 12-36 hours before you ovulate and both lines are meant to be the same colour apprently.
So last night I had some stabbing pains on my pelvis right handside and then what felt like period cramps for a few hours after. I thought yay period coming right on time for a 28 day cycle after the pill but woke up and no arrival of AF and cramps gone. Have done an OPK and back to faint line today 😞. Confused to say the least. I was so happy to get period pains lol! Anyone else get these type of pains when ovulating?

Hiya I know it's been a year since you wrote on here, I'm experiencing the same right now with sore boobs, cramps and tiredness from stopping bc start of this month, can you remember how long your cramps lasted for at all? Had mine over a week now n it's starting to pee me off! Hope to hear back from you :) thankyou XxxxxxxxX

Hi guys, hope you are all keeping well. Just wanted to get chatting on here again as my husband and I have decided to start trying again after having a miscarriage around this time last year. I have just gone off the pill and was wondering how look it took for others cycles to return to normal? I've only been back on the pill about 7 months, so hoping it shouldn't take me too long.
