I am new to this so please bear with me as I don't know all the abbreviations yet!
I came off the pill 7 months ago (after taking it for about 15 years) and since then by period has been a bit over the place. The last few months it seemed to settle a bit and I have consistently had a cycle of 34 days for the last 2 months. My period is due on Saturday (1 June) but it came on Sunday 26 May, just a few days to a week after I was ovulating (or at least I thought I was, when I was working to a 34 day cycle). I was disappointed obviously, but that its becoming a bit more of a common feeling these days (for the first couple of months I was nervous and excited that it might happen and now I am unsure it ever will). Anyway, as I say, since coming off the pill, my cycle has been all over the place so I figured that I have just got it wrong again and my cycle has changed.
But, my period was different this time - it was very brown/pinkish and kind of a thicker mucus for a few hours, then the next morning it was heavy like proper period for a few hours, and then it completely stopped. I know that spotting and implantation bleeding are a thing but I don't know if I am being hopeful and silly looking for signs that aren't there where i have just had a shorter period than usual. I have felt a bit out of sorts, have no appetite and am very tired but I guess all of those to be attributed to something else and I am not sure if I am just wanting it so badly, its the only conclusion that I can come to!
I was wondering if anyone can tell me their experience, specially on how long it took their body and cycle to return to normal after coming off the pill.
