Stopped the Pill Mid Pack

Hi all,

I'm new here.  I'm hoping to find a great support group as my DH and I are TTC.

I had previously been taking the pill continously for about a year.  My doctor recommeded I do so to alleviate the severe headaches I was getting during my period.  My DH and I recently decided to start TTC, so I stopped mid pack since my periods were very sporadic anyways (about every 2 months I would still get one).

I'm concerned that we are going to have difficulties since my body is probably so confused.  Has anyone else had experience with this or know anything about it?

Thanks so much!

Well, I went off the pill on June 1 (Friday) and had a period start on June 4 (Tuesday).  I haven't had a period since!  Its been 42 days now and I have no period but also no positive tests.  Sooo...

Or I ovulated very late and maybe did get conception but its too early to show on a test. I hope that you go back to normal quickly! But, you might gave a while before your next period if you are like me. I hope that you go back to normal quickly! Just remember it may take a bit.

Thanks so much, Annie.  And best of luck to you.  For as many years as we've done everything possible to prevent getting pregnant, I never knew that getting pregnant isn't exactly that easy!
