Need some advice girlies, I stopped my pill about 8 weeks ago and I got my period as normal so I thought it would take another 4 weeks to get a "real" period, anyhow hasnt happened, have been very careful as I wanted to give myself the three month break etc, has anyone else had this, I wonder how long more it will be, I know everyone is different but would love to hear from others how it happened for them
Same thing happened to me - but it turned out I was pregnant :shock: We had been very careful apart from once (but as my mother would say it only takes the once!!)
Have you done a preg test?? If there's no possibility that you can be pregnant then wait a couple more weeks - if nothing I would go & see my doctor as you should have come on by then.
It could take months. Dont worry just keep trying and relax about it. Stressing over it could stop it from happening too
It took 10 weeks after I stopped taking the Pill for me to get my period and then it was fairly irregular for about 6 months. Only really got back to a "normal cycle" after about a year. Wasn't TTC at the time, just didn't want to be on the Pill anymore.
took me near 11 weeks - nearly went stir crazy, but they arrived eventually. was told by Doctor not to expect to have anything close to a near cycle till after christmas! :o
When I stopped taking the Pill I got a very bad period about 4 weeks later and figured things were back on track. But then I didn't get another one for 12 weeks! Although we were careful within that time I used countless tests just to be sure that I wasn't actually pregnant. Now, nearly a year later, they're back on track, as in back to a 28 day cycle for the last three months. I suppose everyone is different but if you're worried I would see my GP.
took me about 5 months! Spent a fortune on pregnancy tests just to make sure, won't be going off it again for a long time!
