    I've come off mine recently & am waiting to see how long AF takes to arrive. I've spoken to my doc about it and apparently it can take 6 months if not a bit more for some people to return back to normal. To which I tried to explain to her that I can't remember normal hahaha.

    I'm currently using Ovia to track things, it's good to be able to see where your predicted TTOM's will be as well as tracks pregnancy symptoms and all that

    Thanks for sharing all your stories, sounds like anything could happen from it coming straight back to waiting a few months. Will just have to wait and see what happens.

    Fingers crossed it doesn't take too long

    Good to know some people are having some success getting things back to normal. Tracking in an app sounds like a great idea. Hopefully we all have some luck soon!

    Good luck!
    I was on the pill for 10 years, took 3 months to get my first period after coming off it. If period has gone back to normal, should be due any day, either that or a bfp! I hope

    Good luck ! I was on the pill for literally 21 years! I went off it thinking it would also take up to 6 months to be regular so didn't think anything off it when I didn't get a period for 3 months - until I found out I was actually pregnant with DS!

    I was on the pill for 9 years and stopped it in Oct 2013 due to non-TTC reasons (at the time wasn't planning to TTC for another 4 years!) I have only had one 4 week cycle since then (of course for the week of our annual holiday!), and all the rest have been 6 or 8 weeks! I have just downloaded that app @MustBeLove thank you for the recommendation! We start TTC March-June 2015!
