Hi I recently stopped taking my pill. When i say recently, almost 3 weeks ago.
I was under the impression that it usually takes a good couple of months to start getting normal periods again?
I am a little concerned, as on Saturday evening I had some "spotting" it lasted only about 2 hours, it wasn't usual period colour as it was brown and there wasn't much of it at all. Would this have been my withdrawal bleed?
I have had unprotected sex with my partner on a number of occasions since stopping my pill. It isn't the end of the world if i end up falling now, i just had hoped that it wouldn't happen until September time.
I have been having slight cramps and have tender boobs (nothing excessive) as if I am going to come on but nothing as yet. I feel horribly sick and extremely hot, although temp yesterday was 37.2 and this morning 36.5 so nothing abnormal really. I did a pregnancy test this morning at about 10am which came back negative but I don't know if i am testing at the right time as I don't know where I am in my cycle.
Can anyone tell me if the above symptoms are common when coming off Cerelle? And when they recommend me testing again? I did some Sainsburys Ovulation test strips last week and I only got faint result line which i understand to be negative as they are not as dark as the control line.
If anyone can shed any light and make me feel less anxious about the situation that would be great.
And actually passed?
