Gag- how are you and your LO?

Flukey- wow already? Going PRN would be awesome. You and your little one are gorgeous! She looks so big!! How's everything going with her?

Amber- so sorry about your MC sending you hugs and crossed fingers!!

Afm my LO is 13 months now 😮I can't believe it. He's walking and learning sooo much now. He's got his own personality and likes/dislikes it's amazing. I got a new job and am doing 3 12 hour shifts which I like. I'm hoping to cut down to part time next year, I hope I can!

Amber I'm so sorry about your miscarriage. I hope you get your rainbow baby soon

Aj, yeah time flies doesn't it. Yes she seems really tall and weighs over 13lbs now. She's a really good eater and sleeper. Only waking up for 1 night fees for many weeks now.

It's so cool he's got his own personality. Oh and walking, I can't wait!! I may have a change of heart later lol. Glad you like your new job and I hope you can go part time too!!

Hi momma2be17. I stopped when I finished my pack. It took me 6 months to get regularish cycles back that got even more regular as time went on. I conceived 18 months after stopping the pill and have a beautiful 5.5 month old girl. I know some ladies journey was shorter though. Good luck. Also, I think there's a new off bcp forum. We are a bit of dead thread.

Id like a few people who are stopping bc to join me keep us updated & share experiences! Hopefully with this we don't only help each other but the future mom's who come here will see this and know what to expect when coming off bc. If youd like to be added please tell us your age & how long youve been ttc & how long you were on bc & any experiences you've had so far and i will add it to this post. Feel free to share anythihg else too!

Hello, All!

I am new on here and have been following multiple forums looking for potential answers, and women in similar situations. I stopped my birthcontrol(Nuvaring) from being on it for 11Years, last month. I am 5 days late for my period. The past three weeks, I have been having what seem like ďpregnancy symptomsĒ. Sore nipples(darker veins) as well as as they seem fuller, fatigue, frequent urination, as of now, a watery, milky CM. And today, I was crampy, and it felt as thought my period was going to start(felt wet down there) went to the bathroom and it was more CM. Took a pregnancy test this morning, and it was negative. I am assuming most of these symptoms might be my body trying to get back on track with a normal menstrual cycle...but is it possible that I may really be pregnant? Donít want to get my hopes up, but Iíve never felt this way before OR missed a period.

Mirra is this your first cycle after birth control? If you didn't temp or do opks to pinpoint ovulation you may just ovulate later. My 2nd cycle after bcp was 2.5 months long and I was most definitely not pregnant. I would give your body some time to regulate. Some women it takes awhile and others hardly any time. An I got my bfp it was 2 days before AF was due and I probably would have gotten bfp a day or two before that. Now you could have Od later and you could be pregnant just not showing because you aren't late. Good luck

Hi, Flueky!

Yes, this will be my first cycle since being off of birthcontrol. So I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I’ve heard it could take some time to get my periods back on track, but ive read that other women that have come off the Nuvaring as well, stated that their cycles were back to normal right away. But, I understand that everyone is different and everybody’s body is different, so I think this is having to do with me being off my birth control. Tomorrow I will be a week ‘late’. But I was going off of what my menstrual cycle was like when I was on the NuvaRing. So that might not be accurate at all at this point. I did want to make an appointment to go see a Doctor this week just to make sure it’s my birthcontrol that is making my period late and not pregnancy. it’s just insane how many symptoms I’ve been having that resemble pregnancy symptoms. But again, that probably doesn’t mean much right now. I just really would like to have my menstrual cycle, so that We can restart the trying process for next month! Not to mention I’ve taken 3 pregnancy tests and they were all negative. Was going to take another one Tuesday, just to see...but I have a feeling that will be negative as well.

Mirra yes I tried my best not to symptom spot because early pregnancy symptoms and pre AF symptoms are about the same. I don't get back pain before AF but I did with bfp. So as symptoms go, I find stuff out of ordinary are more reliable in early days. I was 6 weeks before nausea kicked in. But like I said you could O later and still be pregnant or become very soon.

A lot of ladies recommended bbt to get in tune with my cycle post bcp. I resisted for a long time claiming I didn't want to get that into ttc, but honestly if gave me insight and confirmation on O. So something to think about.

I would but some wondfos or another IC brand and test once or twice a week until AF arrives or bfp. It can save your wallet during limbo

Some Drs like to wait until so many days with no period before prescribing something to restart AF. I think mine was prometrium x10 days then AF came 3 days after stopping it. My cycles came back to my normal after that. I'd had an anovulatory cycle from severe stress at work is why I took the medication.

I do wish you the best of luck though and hope your ttc journey is short. I hope my journey to #2 is shorter but I won't start until may next year at earliest. Im happy to answer or at least try to answer any questions you may have. This site and ladies on it have helped me so I like to pay it forward.

Thank you so much for responding! Youíve been super helpful and I completely understand that this is all probably due to me just getting off birthcontrol, and my body is still getting used to being with out the hormones. My sister-in-law is a nurse and said to wait at least another week before seeing a doctor, just Incase I did ovulate later than I thought! Even though I felt like I ovulated when my Ovia App and Flo App said it would. The day I thought I ovulated, my CM was a glob of sticky/stretchy discharge(sorry TMI). And if freaked me out because I NEVER had that before!

For the past week or so, I have been having a watery egg white CM. But today itís a little sticky. I just i when I would know if I Ovulated later than I thought or not. I took another pregnancy test this morning a Clear Blue digital, and it was Negative. Iím having less symptoms than I was last week. Iím not sure what this could mean, if it means anything. But thanks for your advice on potentially getting a medication to jumpstart my period!
