    Question Your first cycle off the Pill....

    Hi Ladies,

    I was hoping some of you wouldnt mind sharing what your first cycle off the pill was like? I know everyone is different but here is mine so far....

    Went off mid packet, 1 day after showed major ferning on Maybe Baby, next day started really mild withdrawal bleeding for 4 days, have BD every day or every second day except during withdrawal bleed. Am now CD 16, had some ferning on CD14 on Maybe Baby but nothing on Ov urine tests. So no idea if I ovulated or not. No CM at all since going off the Pill.

    I would love to hear from you guys!

    Hi my first cycle off the pill was interesting! I was on the pill for the better part of 16-17 years.

    I finished at the end of the packet and had my normal AF. I then didn't get EWCM until CD26 and a positive OPK on day 29 with O confirmed day 31 via temps. AF showed up ten days later.

    My second cycle was shorter I got a positive OPK on CD20 and temp shift on CD22 then AF about ten days later.

    I didn't get much CM for the first or second cycle and have experienced fairly painful O pain for both. I have had an ultrasound to make sure there were no issues associated with the pain which came back fine.

    Both cycles I had 3-4 days of positive OPK's.

    I'm now on cycle three have been taking EPO since CD1 which has made a huge difference to CM.

    I'm have just changed to Blackmores Conceive Well Gold and am taking B6 in an attempt to lengthen my luteal phase which has only been 10 days long plus have an appointment with a naturopath on Thursday.

    That's my story hope it helps you good luck, sending baby dust your way! :-)

    stopped pill oct 30th 2009. AF Nov 2 2009. Haven't had an AF since. Conceived DD within a week or so... and conceived again whilst BF'ing DD. Noticed CM changes and used them as an indicator instead of OPKs.


    Was told it was practically impossible to fall pregnant so quickly post pill. I had been on it for 8yrs.

    Its funny telling the sonographer and doctors that your last LMP was nov 2009.
