when you stopped your birth control....

Did you get your period back pretty quickly? Each time I've stopped my pills, my period came back on time to the day. Every 25 days. On the mark. I stopped my pills January 8 ( the day my last period started, cd 1). Now its cd 28 and no signs of af. I usually cramp a little the day before af, but still nothing. Also, tmi, I get brownish discharge the day before af...again nothing.

I noticed the other day that we bd (unknowingly) the day I had slight cramping on one side which was cd 14 (I probably ovulated). About 7 days later, I had slight cramping again. With that said, I took a test this morning and it was a bfn.

Any thoughts?

I haven't used BC for almost 4 years now but when I stopped I never got my next period I got pregnant right away. I would wait until tomorrow or the day after and test again

I was a birth control before we conceived our daughter, and I got pregnant on our second cycle. From what I recall my cycle was normal right away but was 32 days, and I didn't test positive until day 33 but had all the signs. I say give it a few more days. GL!

If what LilysMommy said was true for her, I hope it's true for you (and me). This is my first cycle after being on birth control for 8 years... So I'll have to let you know what happens in about 19 more days...

Wait until AF shows or a couple more days and test again...

Thanks ladies :)

The only sign I have is sore bbs. That's it. Idk. We'll see I guess. We weren't going to actively TTC until July, but I'd be overly happy if it happened now ;)

I had para guard and my cycle seemed rather long after it was taken out but I don't know. I'd test again in a few days. You never know.....

It took me 6 weeks to get a period after I stopped bc... I have been off since Aug. and my cycles are semi regular but still not back to what I would say is normal.  good luck!!
