Hi lovely ladies,
I am new here - so firstly, i can't wait to start getting to know you all xxo
I'm sure i have seen a question similar to the ones i am about to ask, however there weren't many responses so i thought i might just try my luck asking again.
I went off the pill hmm probably in April and i should note i have PCOS. I just wanted to ask for some feedback as to what were your experiences and symptoms with:-
1. Coming off the pill - did you get spotting and then light bleeding, did you get sore breasts or headaches and when, how long did it take you to go back to "normal"? etc...
2. What were your early pregnancy symptoms - when did your breasts start getting sore and was it an ache near your arm pits or where was it located, did you get spotting and how long did it last, how long did it take for you to get a BFP? etc.
I'm looking for different scenarios that happened to people as i don't know if what is happening to me is pill related, pcos related or pregnancy related....
Also, finally, does anyone know if PCOS affects the accuracy of pregnancy tests?
Sorry for all of the questions or if I rambled, I feel like I'm stumbling in the dark a bit with all of this...
Thank you all in advance, can't wait to hear from you all.

Hi, I think I was one of the lucky ones in relation to coming off the pill. I was extremely tired, boobs felt like they had been used as a punching bag and had serious cramping on and off until I got my first period 3 weeks later. Then it all stopped. I was also an emotional train wreck up until that point. I didn't have a break through bleed either. Waiting to see how my next period is unless I'm really lucky and get a bfp first but still have about a week minimum to wait!
I do have two boys already though and finding out I was pregnant with them was such a shock as literally early pregnancy for me was exactly the same as my period starting. Was so adamant that my period was on its way I only tested because I was a day late and my oh wanted me to. My first boy was after about 9 months of trying but my second was straight away. In fact I think it was after the second time of bding after deciding to try that it happened. Hoping this time I will be just as lucky but only time will tell.
I can't help with pcos I'm afraid but might be worth asking the docs about affecting test? Also the leaflet insert might give you some answers?
Really hope I've helped and a big good luck to you!

My early symptoms were mainly just feeling sick, sensitivity to smells and just generally feeling like rubbish! I had a terrible cold I couldn't get rid of too. Then at 8 weeks the vomit began and it's still not really stopped at 16 weeks!

I just got off my pill about a month ago and should have gotten my period last weekend and have not gotten it yet. I recently have been feeling a little sick, tired sore breasts/nipples. I have not had any break through bleeding or spotting at all either! I was going crazy wondering what all this was that is happening to me.

I have had two and currently pregnant and I found out I was pregnant this time when I was 1 week pregnant even though it was unplanned by just having a feeling. I've had the same feeling with the other two and both times been correct and I was correct this time. Other then that I wouldn't have known apart from late period.
