  • I was on a lowdose pill and it took me nearly a year just to get my cycle back to normal. Was so frustrating because every time I was late I'd get my hopes up but no, it was just being irregular: 4 months between periods, sometimes 2 or 3 months. Very annoying. But then I got pregnant and had my baby boy; then another, then 2 girls, then another boy, then another girl. :)

  • I was on Depo and got pregnant right away - was supposed to get a shot in late March, skipped it, and got pregnant 2-3 weeks later in April. 10 years ago :S
