I am also having some feelings of depression. I have been breaking out and gaining weight (lacking a lot of self confidence) even though I haven't changed my diet (but possibly crazy hormones at work). Having a late or missed cycle doesn't really help either because I feel like "I can't even cycle right!" and on top of everything I just want my bundle of joy. As much as I now despise the fact that most of these things were probably caused by my stopping bcp I can't help but think that I really need something to calm down these hormones. Regardless, I will not stop trying for a baby. I just feel so inadequate in the mean time...

I came off microgynon 30 2 months ago. I've had positive OPK both months and my periods have returned to normal. However the most depressing thing is both months I have spotted continuously from about 2 days after ovulation right up until my period

Anyone experienced this? I have 2 appointments next week with my GP as I have recently been for blood tests and will get the results at one of the appointments.

My FPC nurse said it is apparently normal but I can't seem to find anyone else who has experienced this after BCPs

Kinda sounds like you have low progesterone. If your progesterone levels are low, you will spot during your lp but that is easily fixable. You need to get bloods tests done after ovulation though to confirm.

Same here and I was on Yaz for about 6 months. I just got horomone testing done and my estrogen and testosterone is low and my prolactin is high. My cycles were regular when I first got off the pill but they got worse and worse.

When I got bloodwork done my doctor said low prolactin is one of the easiest things to "fix"!!! This isn't my issue, they don't know what is, but I thought I'd share!

I hear you!!! I went on the bcp because my periods were irregular... Always too close together and lasted too long... 5 years of being on it we decide the time is right to try for a baby and I'm still waiting for af to return... Cd 49!!!! I'm going nuts! No af and all BFNs oh well it has to come back eventually right! In the mean time all this bd'ing is enjoyable but I doubt it's gonna make a baby!

Hey ladies. Ugh. BC from hell.

I was on the mini pill up until 12 Oct 2011, then then next day, I started Desogen (the pill). I took most of the pills, except for a couple because I was just lazy and I lost one, and stopped taking them altogether on 29 Oct. I was bleeding that day, which continued until Nov 2nd. I'm thinking that was my period. AF is now expected 26 Nov, and I believe I have ovulated from 7 - 11 Nov...one of those days (fertile week). So only time will tell.

I hate that I switched BC in the middle of the month. I hate that I even started Desogen because it messed with my cycles. If I don't get AF this month, then I'm either pregnant or not ovulating. Ladies, I wish you all the best of luck!

i was on BCPs for almost 10 years. big mistake. when i got married i stopped taking them and didnt get AF for 6 months. finally got it back. and ive had like 40-45 day cycles since..its my first month charting and it doesnt look good. check out my chart, cause i thought i had ovulated and than my temps dipped back down... any insight? at this point im wondering if ill ovulate again. plus im living in western china teaching english right now and the health care system isnt exactly the same as the states, so if im all messed up im wondering if they can even help me.... i wish i could go back and tell my young self not to take the pill. oh well. you spend all that time trying not to get pregnant and than when you want to it seems like you screwed it all up.
