Hiya!

The bleed your having now is your withdrawal bleed. It should last about as long as your WB normally did when on the pill (mine was usually 4-5 days).

No reason why you can't TTC now, though you most likely won't ovulate yet for at least 2 weeks or so, and it can take some people much longer. After stopping the pill I had a 31 day cycle then my 'true' period started. I'm using OPKs this month and hoping to catch when I ov. Some people prefer to wait until they have a true period before TTC, just to get an idea of cycle length and let their bodies settle. Though it's not a problem if you get pg in the first cycle.

I was on microgynon too, 11 years non stop! Feels great to get off it. Good luck with TTC!

Hi

Mine was over a week but not too heavy towards the end. I started trying to ttc after that but my cycles are wacko!
