Well, I came off all birth control for health issues (too many side effects after years!) on the 14th of November.
I was told by my doctor that within 12-24 hours I would be fertile again, and that with some women ovulation can happen literally days after it is removed.
Boyfriend and I obviously had to move onto condoms, but for some reason it caused me a burning sensation (possibly an allergy.. or just not lubricated enough) so we've been using the withdrawal method.
We did this on the 16th, 19th and 23rd.. no accidents.
However, I've gotten a little worried after a friend told me that this is how she got pregnant, due to pre-ejaculate.
I looked back into the time since I had the implant out to try remember if I had any ovulation symptoms, to figure out when my monthly is due..
Back on the 16th I had a hot spell, came over suddenly boiling hot and sweaty palms, along with a slight nauseous feeling and a mild cramp that lasted a few hours. I guessed that could potentially have been it (not too sure since I've been on BC so long).
Been having some odd symptoms since, and obviously pregnancy is a concern of mine now.
17th- Thicker discharge than usual.
18th- Felt extremely tired, unusual. Fell asleep midday for around 4 hours.
19th- Mild cramping, creamy discharge.
20th- Feeling wet down there, but next to no discharge.
21st- Bloated, crampy. Sicky burps throughout random points of the day.
22nd- Acidy taste in mouth, feeling sicker again at random points. More discharge.
23rd- Feeling sick after dinner, very tired, irritable for no reason. Nightmares for the first time in ages.
24th (today)- Cramping, inability to focus, tired, feeling sick. An odd pulling sensation near my cervix, feels like I'm clenching when I'm not.
Sorry this post is so long.. I don't want to stress myself out any more, and I don't want to be reading into the way my body has been too much because that would also add stress. I dont know when I ovulated, I only guessed. I've honestly got no clue what is going on with my body. I've told myself if I dont get a monthly by 14th December (a month after removal) I will take a test.
