Missing AF


OK - so I'm not usually someone who looks forward to her AF every month but it's nearly been a month after it was due without a sighting and I'm missing it!

Actually I getting a little worried about the no-show of my AF...I've taken a test two weeks ag and got a BFN but still my AF is gone AWOL.

Calling all post-pill gals out there - just wondering how long it took for your AF to show up once you stopped taking the pill. Am I normal to be still waiting for mine for over two months after stopping the pill?

yes it can take some time if this is to be your first period after your last withdrawal bleed.

mine took around 40 days and then the cycles got shorter after.
if it takes too long maybe go see a doc to get your mind at ease

Totally normal My cycles where all over the place after being on the pill for 8 years or so. i stopped taking it in the august and they went like this:

September 08: withdrawal bleed
(waited 150 odd days so went to docs for some norethisterone to kick start AF)
February 09: First natural, cycle 36 day cycle
March 09: 68 day cycle
June 09: 33 Days
July 09:BFP!!!!


I hope they get back to normal for you

Update!

My AF has FINALLY decided to show itself - and now I'm over it!! LOL

Nah, I'm relieved to see it and I'm now hoping that I can start tracking my cycles - it feels like I have been tredding water for the past couple of months but not (fingers crossed) can start planning a little more ready for TTC in august/September! Yay!

I'd go to the doctor for sure, have you been charting your BBT?
