    Default Looking for advice!

    This is my first time posting on this forum. My partner and I are TTC and I have been off the pill for only one cycle. From the website ovulation calculators I was ovulating on 22nd May. We had sex 3 days before that day and on that day. 4 days after Ovulation I had really (I mean REALLY) sore/tender boobs. I have been feeling a little off and really tired. Today I had a bleed (red and a little heavy) with cramping. Felt a little disappointed thinking it was my period but its 5 days early…. By lunchtime today it seems to have stopped. Does anyone know if this is implantation bleeding or am I just going crazy thinking I’m pregnant.

    It sounds like your body adjusting to being off the pill - an implantation bleed I thought was just a bit of brown blood, not red and heavy.

    I agree with previous poster. Once off the pill, you can't assume that your cycles are going to stay the same as they were before. I had a 28 day cycle prior to the pill and while on it. Once I stopped taking it, my cycles were between 21 and 23 days (ovulating around day 10-12). It may take a little while for your body to adjust to being off the pill. If possible, while you're unsure what your cycle is doing, try to have s3x every second day. This way, if you don't know when you're ovulating, at least you've got it covered anyway.

    Good luck

    Thank you both for your comments. I'm sure partner will be very happy with sex every second day.
