Good Morning Mums/Mums to be out there.
I was hoping someone could give me some advice or feedback on what i have been experincing recently, i would really appreciate it.
So here is my story (If your reading still, thank you).
I stopped my pill mid cycle in Jan, a few days later i started bleeding and this lasted for 7 days. I started on Sat 10 Jan and finished on Sat 17 Jan.
For the next week everything was fine. But since last Tue (Tue 27 Jan) i have been experincing some things. Now i dont know if it is my body playing up and trying to get back to normal or if i could actually be pregnant.
So last Tue (27 Jan) i was completing a cross country race and 10 minutes into running i started getting the most awful belly ache in my lower middle belly, it was no stitch, i was in agony and felt like stopping but carried in despite the pain.
After i finished it it supsided. Since that day i have been experincing dull aches in my lower right side of my belly along with sometimes sharp pains for a few seconds. I have woken up in the night or morning needing a wee but my right side aching or painful because of this.
I have had sore boobs and my nipples have also been hurting when i brush past them in the shower or getting changed, but today my nipples are ok but tonight they could be sore again, my boobs are achey but not too bad.
I normally have a six pack but the past few days my belly just looks so bloated, but some days it looks fine. I have alsoI had a bit of white mucas the past two days.
Like right now as i am typing away my lower right side of my belly almost where your hip bone is just aches, like a really dull ache and sometimes it can spready to my middle lower belly.
Now i cant tell if this is just my body getting itself sorted or if i am pregnant, i have taken two HPTs but they both came up negative.
I would really appreciate anyones advice, feedback, personal experinces.
Thank you for taking your time to read my story.

When I came off the pill my body was pretty messed up for a while. Withdrawal symptoms are so similar to pregnancy symptoms as well. It's so harsh and even now 7 months later my periods are all over the place. You may even find that the first bleed was just withdrawal bleeding rather than an actual period. One of my periods took 45 days to show up and I was so gutted when it did show because I felt so sure all my symptims pointed to me being pregnant. If I was you I would take every symptom with a pinch of salt until you have a bfp, it will save you a lot of heartache. Saying all of that though some people have fallen pregnant that quickly after stopping the pill and my fingers are crossed for you that you will be one of the lucky ones. Good luck! X

I think it all just sounds like symptoms of coming off the pill. I was the same and your body just feels all over the place. but I found forums on here great and a lot of people go through the same thing. unfortunately the symptoms are so much like pregnancy ones and it totally messes with your head. it took 4 weeks for mine to settle down, so know it does stop eventually

Yes it feels like you really could be pregnant, you look up sympotoms and its everything your experiencing.
But it can just be the pill! It does mess with your head! Well hopefully I get a period soon I've nearly been off 4 weeks too!
Thank you for replying yo my post ????

I found it stopped a week before getting my period the symptoms stopped. I was googling all the symptoms thinking I was pregnant or going mad. never thought I would experience any symptoms like that by just stopping the pill. Quite niave I now know. that's why I found the forums on here so good.
fingers crossed you get your period soon and the symptoms ease

I had been on pretty much every contraception possible before me and my boyfriend decided to start trying. for 2 years we struggled however after a holiday 4 weeks later I started getting pains in the pit of my stomach which led me to believe it was period pains as I was due around that time. The pains got worse so i was taking paracetamol and Ibuprofen and even had a shot of alchohol as that always stopped my period pains. a couple of days passed and i was still receiving the pains which prompted me to take a pregnancy test first wee of the morning and I was over the moon to find out I was pregnant.
I Kept thinking am I seeing the line on the test because I want it so much or is it actually there. I showed it to my boyfriend and yep I was pregnant. Now 38 weeks later I am awaiting to meet my baby girl.
If you are still getting the pains and they have lasted at least a week I would deffo take a test because you are experiencing what I got right before I found out.
I hope helps x

I am hoping its pregnacy but then it could just be my body playing up. I have had the pains coming up 2 weeks now!
i will probably try another test in a few days.
aw congratulations I bet you are so excited! wish you the best of luck!
Hope labour goes well. Big hugs! Xoxo

i have recently posted for some advice on a faint line test but I couldn't help but want to reply to this as I am going through something similar.
Came me off pill oct 2nd after 10 years on same pill no break and I came straight On when I was due I then had periods on time again but extremely heavy flow lasting over 8 days. What struck me about your post was the similarity in my current position.
My boobs hurt more than normal but not like i would expect them too, I am havino discharge milky white and lower abdomen pains with bloating and I can cry at the drop of a hat!
I hope my test is positive but if not then what I am saying is I think this is just our body's getting back to normal
