I stopped the pill last month so we have been TTC. This month AF was suppose to come but 1 week berofe I had dark brown pink for 2 days and then on my due date 2nd of feb till today light pink. Instead of it getting heavier it's getting lighter. Blood test negative. was it too early to test? Could I still be preg? Had cramp, back pain etc but now nothing. but breast hurt . Feeling confused. ????

If you had a blood test at your doctors on or after your period due date then it is unlikely you are pregnant.
it can take several months or longer after coming off the pill for your cycles to return to normal... You may get spotting, late periods, early periods & even symptoms of hormonal fluctuations which are similar to pregnancy symptoms.
the best advice i can give you if you are concerned to know more about what your body is doing is to use opks. When you get your next period, count that first day as cycle day 1.... Then roughly around cycle day 10 or so (unless you usually have cycles shorter average... In which case start testing earlier... Maybe as soon as period stops) start using ovulation tests. Keep using every day until you get a positive. This indicates that you will ovulate 12-36 hours after the positive test. Once you have ovulated you will know when you can expect your next period or when to test for pregnancy as this phase of a womans cycle is always roughly the same.... Somewhere between 12-14 days. So if you havent had your period start 15+ days after a positive opk then you can take a pregnancy test.

Thank you for your advice. I'm very confused as I have stopped the pill before and have always had a normal period and on time but never like this before .

I was like this when I came off the pill....its your body adjusting to a change. I stopped it in July 2014 and my period went really irregular..breasts hurt....spotting and basically all the prego symptoms...did test after test then went docs and the took a blood test which came back negative she then explained to me how coming off the pill can do.wonders to the body. I didn't know what was happening as a year before that I came off the pill and had none of that. Try not too worry it will sort out I'm now 10 weeks pregnant it's all signs your body is getting back to normal xx
