    Default 1st cycle off the pill very irregular?!

    Hi,
    I've just come off the pill and my first cycle has been all over the place. I know it is normal to be irregular, however I'm getting a little frustrated at this point.....can someone please tell me if what I'm experiencing is "normal" when coming off the pill??
    Week 1 - withdrawal bleed, stopped the pill
    Week 7 - spotting (5 days)
    Week 8 - spotting (5 days)
    Week 9 - menstruating (7 days and still counting)
    I really just want to get back to DTD and TTC!!!!
    Thanks

    Totally normal. It took a few months for my body to get into any kind of rhythm

    Yep that's normal. It can take a while for your body to get back to normal. I stopped at end of march, this is the first month I've actually felt somewhat normal and had signs of ov'ing. Good luck, I hope you're back to normal soon
